SAN ANTONIO, Tx. — Veterans Memorial fell in the state semifinal against Cedar Park 61-28.
5A-1 State Semifinal— Jeff Dubrof (@j_dubrof) January 9, 2021
Eagles historic season comes to an end.
The Eagles started the game off hot when quarterback Carter Senterfitt led the offense 80 yards down the field. The drive was capped off with a touchdown pass to Nana Amo-Mensah.
Veterans Memorial forced a three and out on the ensuing Cedar Park drive but after a holding call in the endzone, Cedar Park was awarded a safety and cut into the Veterans Memorial lead.
After a missed Eagles field goal, Cedar Park took their first lead of the game when quarterback Ryder Hernandez found a receiver for 42 yards to take a 10-7 lead before the half.
The first half was a back and forth affair but it was the Eagles that found themselves leading at the half 21-17 after a jet sweep touchdown run by Amo-Mensah.
The second half was a completely different story and would prove to be the difference in this game.
Cedar Park shutout the Eagles in the frame and put up 28 points to take a commanding 45-21 lead into the final quarter of the game.
Veterans Memorial will finish this odd 2020-2021 campaign crossing off a lot of milestones in just their 5th year as a program.
