Boys Varsity Football · Roos hand Wolves 26th straight loss By Felisa Cárdenas | Herald staff writer


Friday night was a close call for the Kangaroos. And for the Grey Wolves, too.

Killeen trailed at halftime but overcame its slow start to get a 25-21 win over Shoemaker (0-5, 0-3) at Leo Buckley Stadium, handing the Grey Wolves their 26th straight loss.

Sophomore star running back Kadarius Marshall put the Roos in front with his second touchdown of the night, a 27-yarder with 2:55 remaining. It came shortly after a poor Shoemaker punt went only as far as its own 27-yard line.

De’Andre Exford then returned the kickoff for a Grey Wolves touchdown only to see it wiped out by holding penalties.

Shoemaker (0-5, 0-3 12-6A) led 14-11 at halftime, and 21-11 after Exford scored a 48-yard touchdown in the middle of the third quarter. Exford was injured at the end of score up the right sideline and was helped off the field with an apparent ankle injury.

The Roos (4-2, 3-1 12-6A) began their comeback with a touchdown with 8:04 remaining to get within 21-18.
