Thursday Night Lights: September 15

Three matchups to keep you entertained on Thursday night this week… as always, you can follow all the action on the Taco Shack Scoreboard.

Vandegrift Vipers at Harker Heights Knights – 7:00pm, Leo Buckley Stadium (Killeen)
The Vipers (1-2) have had a rough start to 2016, but look to build momentum off of last week’s 33-16 win over Killeen. Meanwhile, the Knights (2-1) are looking to shake off a 28-12 loss to Waco in Week 3.

Belton Tigers at Round Rock Dragons – 7:00pm, Kelly Reeves Athletic Complex
The Tigers (2-1) put up 70 on Stony Point in Week 3; the last time they faced Round Rock in 2013, the Dragons (2-1) came out ahead with a 44-15 win. It’s safe to say that Belton QB Peyton Mansell – one of our Player Of The Week nominees for Week 3 – and the rest of the Tigers expect a different result this time around. Meanwhile, the Dragons are coming off of a 20-14 win against Smithson Valley.

McCallum Knights at Akins Eagles – 7:30pm, Burger Stadium
Our Superior Physical Medicine Thursday Game Of The Week… McCallum (3-0) is looking to cap off their non-district slate with a perfect record; while the Eagles (2-1) are just looking to shake off a 42-7 loss to Lehman last week. It’s the first time these teams have met on the field since 2013, when McCallum won 40-6. Join us for a 7:15pm pregame, 7:30pm kickoff on Talk 1370AM and here on FanstandATX.com.
