New Braunfels Canyon vs. Seguin headline Friday’s program

We are officially in the home stretch! There are three weeks left in the 2022 high school football season, and playoff positioning is up for grabs this Friday night as district races come to a head. The best example is our Game of the Week for Week 9 of our Big Game (BGC) coverage, featuring two top 10 teams battling it out in Division I of District 12-5A:

BGC Game of the Week: No. 7 New Braunfels Canyon vs. No. 9 Seguin, Matador Stadium, 7:30 p.m.

The Matadors host the Cougars in a game that means more than a head start in the district standings.

Former Seguin head coach Travis Bush leads the New Braunfels Canyon and their scorching offense at Matador Stadium after posting 44 or more points in consecutive games. Quarterback Deuce Adams coordinates an incredible passing offense that is the main driver of an offense that is scoring nearly 40 points per game this season. This average understand a pretty amazing outlier in a white road loss to Smithson Valley. Either way, Xayvion Noland and Eli Adams have proven to be an impressive wide receiver tandem, regularly torching defenses throughout the season.

Seguin’s offense has the firepower to keep pace. Quarterback Corey Dailey has connected well with star receiver Devin Matthews throughout the season so far. Matthews leads the Matadors with 16 total touchdowns, while running back John Jackson provided the necessary offensive balance. Seguin has scored 39 or more points in five straight wins.

If the Matadors win, they will remain undefeated in district play and earn a slice of pride by beating their former coaches. If the Cougars win, they’ll tie Seguin in the standings and drag them into a three-way tie with Wagner. Expect offensive fireworks at Matador Stadium. We’ll have all the highlights tonight on Nightbeat.


Clemens vs. New Braunfels, Unicorn Stadium, 7:30 p.m.

After dropping their last two District 27-6A contests, Clemens heads to New Braunfels in a bid to resume the hunt for the playoffs. The Buffaloes lost close games to San Marcos (28-24) and Judson (27-24) and fell below .500 for the first time this season. Meanwhile, the Unicorns are in the midst of a four-way battle for playoff positioning with a 1-1 record in district play. New Braunfels bounced back nicely from a tough loss to No. 1 Steele with a convincing 35-13 win over East Central last week.

Friday night’s showdown will have a major impact on who ultimately comes out 27-6A this season. It’s a stop on this week’s BGC Road Trip, and it’s also one of 11 games you’re streaming live on the BGC app tonight. Including:

Veterans Memorial has scored 44 or more points in three straight games, including 49 points against traditional Class 5A powerhouse Liberty Hill on the road. Running back James Peoples has been an absolute yardstick, averaging 4 touchdowns per game over the past three games.
