O’Connor Falls as Lake Travis Soars

SAN ANTONIO – Lake Travis looked like the much better team in a 38-17 win over previously undefeated O’Connor. At least, it did in the second half.

“That’s one of the best coached teams we’ve ever played,” Lake Travis coach Hank Carter said following the win. “They definitely out-coached us in the first half. [I’m] proud of the way we responded in the second half. But we’re moving on to the final four.”



The Panthers (13-1) started off sloppy, as it was called offsides three times on the first defensive drive.

The penalties, along with some great plays by Lake Travis (12-2) quarterback Matthew Baldwin and co., helped a lot. Baldwin moved the Cavaliers 62 yards in less than six minutes.

The drive was capped off with Baldwin taking it in from three yards out on his own to take a 7-0 lead. O’Connor needed a fake punt on its next drive to keep it alive, but was able to drive down field to put in a 25-yard kick.

The Cavaliers began their next drive looking to take back the lead, instead they fumbled the ball away. Quarterback Matthew Baldwin fumbled the ball and O’Connor linebacker Connor Callihan was there for it.
