Multiple Teams · NBMS 8B shuts out Lamar 8B 16-0, wins district championship with 9-0 record


The North Belton Middle School 8th grade B squad got a first quarter touchdown run by J.Z. Stubblefield and a second quarter touchdown pass from Stubblefield to Lazlo Psolka, plus outstanding defense throughout the game, as the Tigers blanked Lamar Middle School 16-0 at NBMS Field on Tuesday night.

The win clinched the outright 8B district championship in the Central Texas Middle School Football League with a perfect 9-0 mark.

The game started slow for both squads, as Lamar picked off Stubblefield on the second play of the game and Gage White recovered a fumble on the fourth play. After North turned the ball over on downs, Psolka picked up a backwards lateral on a first down and 10 on the Tigers’ 29 with the Bearkats driving. He sprinted 62 yards to the Lamar 19.

Austin Lape’s nine-yard run set up Stubblefield’s 10-yard scramble around the right side for a score. William Hayes’ two-point kick put the Tigers up 8-0 with 2:06 left in the first quarter.

The Tigers’ defense frustrated Lamar in the first quarter, as stops by Samuel McCollough, Josh Grymes and Walker Francis forced a turnover on downs at the Lamar 33.

North used a seven-play, 33-yard, time-consuming 2:31 drive to set up their next score. On fourth down and six, Stubblefield found a wide-open Psolka for a 20-yard touchdown catch. Hayes booted the two-point kick to double the Tigers lead to 16-0 with 4:45 to play in the first half.

Lamar kept the ball for the next 3:41, moving the ball from their own 41 to the North 5. Miquel Reicherts, Michael Smith, and Braden Heiser combined to stop the Bearkats on downs with 1:04 to go in the half.

The defense immediately made an impact in the second half. Heiser’s touchdown-saving force out after a 19-yard Bearkat run at midfield set up a fumble and a recovery by Aiden Cearley at the Lamar 40.

Neither team advanced further than the opponent’s 30-yard line the rest of the night, as both defenses locked the offenses down.

Multiple Teams · Lamar halts furious comeback to hand NBMS 8A first loss, 38-30


There was a lesson learned on Tuesday night at North Belton Middle School Field: expect the unexpected.

The North Belton Middle School 8A Tigers trailed by 24 twice in fourth quarter and scored three touchdowns in the final 1:50. But an onside kick came up short, in which Lamar Middle School 8A handed NBMS 8A their first setback of the season, 38-30.

The win resulted in a three-way Central Texas Middle School Football League 8A district championship between the Tigers, the Bearkats and Midway.

The winds were howling throughout the contest and played a part in the passing game. North got the ball first and Tigers drove from their own 25 to the Lamar 44. Kade Norwood’s pass was carried by the wind and intercepted at the Lamar 34.

The Tigers defense came up big four play into Lamar’s opening drive. Following hard tackles by Yomi Babalola and Nick Bennett, Jayden Caldwell hopped on a fumble to give the North offense the ball at the Lamar 45.

Norwood’s 23-yard pass to Garrison Lane set up his 17-yard touchdown strike to Yomi Babalola. A bad snap on the two-point try kept the Tigers with a 6-0 lead with 4:04 to play in the first quarter.

Lamar’s ensuing drive was a long, time-consuming one. After 15 plays, 70 yards and 5:21 off of clock, the Bearkats scored from five yards out and booted the two-point conversion to take an 8-6 with 6:43 left in the first half.

The wind played a factor in the punting game for Belton on their first punt of the night, as a 6-yard hanger gave Lamar the ball at their own 40. Eight plays later, they extended their lead with a seven-yard run and two-point kick. Lamar led 16-6 with 1:32 to play in the half.

The score remained a 10-point lead until the 5:13 mark of the third quarter, when Lamar scored on a one-yard plunge and two-point kick to extend the score to 24-6.

The Tigers offense struggled with consistency on their next drive, as the started on their own 16, advanced the ball to their own 32 and were forced to punt at their own 19. The wind gust blew back a high punt behind the line of scrimmage and landed at the North 12, resulting in a punt of negative six yards.

The very short field took Lamar four plays to cover, thanks to sure-handed tackles from Yomi Babalola and Jackson Engelke. The Bearkats scored on a fourth and five play at the Belton 7. The two-point kick was short due to the gusty condition, which kept the score at 30-6 just six seconds into the fourth quarter.

The teams traded turnovers on downs and North had the ball with 2:51 to play. Norwood had four carries for 38 yards and scored on a 9-yard run. Lane’s two-point kick cut North’s deficit to 16 points with 1:50 to play, 30-14.

Lamar scooped up an onside kick and two plays later, scored on a 53-yard sweep around the right side. The two-point kick was good to give Lamar a 24-point advantage once again, 38-14, with 1:31 to play.

The North Belton coaching staff reached into their bag of trickeration and pulled out a wild card. Norwood took the snap in the shotgun formation and hit John Morris on the right side, parallel to the line of scrimmage. Morris found Lane wide open up the field, heaved the ball, Lane caught it and sprinted 66 yards for a North touchdown. Lane booted the two-point kick and North was back to within 16 points of the Bearkats with 1:17 to play, 38-22.

Lane’s onside kick dribbled perfectly towards the Lamar kickoff formation. It touched a Bearkat and Myles Byars hopped on the football at the Lamar 49.

The Tigers worked the ball down the field again, with Norwood hitting Lane for nine yards, Yomi Babalola for gains of 20 and seven yards consecutively. Norwood led Lane a little too far on an end zone route, though Lane nearly kept his feet in the end zone through the catch. Norwood went to Babalola for a 12-yard pass play and then went back to Lane for a one-yard touchdown catch with six seconds to play. Lane’s two-point kick put the Tigers to within eight points, 38-30.

The collective breath of NBMS Field was held in the final moments of the contest, as Lane approached and punched the ball forward in hopes that a team would recover the kick. A Bearkat upback read the kick, fielded it and fell down. Lamar knelt on the final play and the Tigers come-from-behind effort fell short after an amazing comeback.IMG_3585 IMG_3566 IMG_3522 IMG_3704

The North Belton Middle School 7A football team looked to bounce back in a big way on Monday evening at Woodson Field.

NBMS 7A finished the season 8-1, giving North Belton a 17-1 record in the 7th grade division.

NBMS recovered the onside kick at the Lamar 48. Robin scurried 18 yards to set up his 22-yard touchdown run around the right side of his offensive line. Tabat’s two-point conversion doubled the Tigers’ lead to 16-0, with 1:09 to play in the opening stanza.

Lamar’s ensuing drive was stalled when Jayden Leza pulled down an interception at the North 25.

The Tigers took the ball to start the second quarter from their own 25 to the Lamar 9, but were stopped short. It bled nearly five minutes off of the clock and affected Lamar’s ability to get a drive started near the end of the first half. NBMS led 16-0 at the half.

Great NBMS kick coverage pinned Lamar at their own 10 to start the second half. Six plays into the drive, a 76-yard Lamar run flipped the field. The Bearkats scored on a 6-yard touchdown and converted the extra-point, which made the score 16-7 with 2:44 to play in the third quarter.

Mason Gerrard recovered the onside kick for NBMS at midfield. On the next play, Tabat hit Leza down the right sideline for the 32-yard pass for a first down. Four plays later, Crews busted across the goal line from 16 yards. The kick failed, which kept the score at 22-7 with 43 seconds to play in the third quarter.

A good kick return by the Bearkats started Lamar in good field position, but the penalty bug stopped the drive cold. A turnover on downs at the Lamar 26 set up Crews for a 26-yard touchdown runs. The kick was blocked, to keep the score 28-7 with 4:09 to play.

NBMS forced interception late, as Connor Brennan intercepted a ball but Lamar stripped the ball back. On the next play, Gerrard hopped on a fumble with 30 seconds to play. The Tiger knelt down on the next play to zero-out the clock.IMG_2881 IMG_2744 IMG_2761 IMG_2928 IMG_3037

Multiple Teams · NBMS 7B completes perfect season with 24-7 win over Lamar 7B


Perfect seasons are hard to come by. The last Belton ISD middle school to accomplish the feat was the 2016 South Belton Middle School 8th grade A team.

You can now add to the list the 2017 North Belton Middle School 7th grade B squad.

NBMS 7B finished the season 9-0.

Connor Bartz recovered Nick Van Dusen’s onside kick at the Lamar 48. Hammond had back-to-back 13-yard runs before connecting with Kent for a 22-yard touchdown pass. Van Dusen’s two-point kick gave North an 8-0 lead 43 seconds into the game.

Lamar’s ensuing drive was eight plays, but progressed just two yards due to big loss on a bad snap. Great defensive plays by Van Dusen and Isaiah Devasure forced the Bearcats into a 32-yard punt.

Hammond found Kent drifting to the right and hit him in the chest with a pass. Kent made two moves on the sideline, cut back towards the middle and sprinted 76 yards for the touchdown. Van Dusen’s two-point kick doubled the Tigers’ lead to 16-0 with 28 seconds left in the first quarter.

Ian Gardner and Josiah Ramos posted stops to give the Tigers a three-and-out, which forced Lamar into a 37-yard punt.

North busted out some trickeration, as Hammond pitched to Banner Allman rolling to the right and he connected with Kent for a 59-yard completion. On fourth down and goal at the Lamar 4, Hammond executed some steely patience in the pocket and found Herrera cutting across the back of the end zone. Hammond let loose a pass in traffic to Herrera and he hauled it in for the score. Van Dusen’s two-point kick increased the Tigers lead to 24-0 with 1:59 to go in the first half.

Lamar scored with 28 seconds remaining in the third quarter for their lone tally of the game.
