On a night where Port Arthur Memorial was without the services of their starting and backup running backs as well as their starting place kicker, the Titans found a way to prevail. A key part of that was starting corner back Javontae’ Hopkins, who switched side of the ball and was the Titans featured running back for the game. Hopkins rushed for 219 yards on 18 carries for three touchdowns to lead the Titans to victory.

Kingwood Park opened the scoring on 44-yard field goal from Gage Guerra to give the Panthers the early lead 3-0 less than 2 minutes into the game.

On the ensuing possession, Javonte’ Hopkins raced 54 yards for a touchdown. Without the services of their place kicker, the Titans opted to go for two-point conversion attempts after every touchdown. On this occasion they were successful and grabbed the lead 8-3.


Hopkins added a 3-yard touchdown run on the Titans next drive to (along with the 2-point conversion) extend the lead to 16-3.

The Panthers would fight scoring on a 1-yard Dalton Roger run on their next possession to cut the lead to 16-10. Th Titans would fumble the ensuing kickoff and this time Sam Johnasen would score a 5-yard touchdown run to give the Panthers the lead 17-16. And that would be the last lead the Panthers saw.

On the next drive, Kameron Ladia hit Teajawon Mack for a 74-yard touchdown pass with 3:38 remaining in the first quarter. The two-point try failed and Port Arthur Memorial led 22-17.

The Titans would extend the lead to 28-17 early in the second quarter on a 17-yard touchdown pass from Ladia to Tavian Gipson. And Hopkins would add a 96-yard touchdown run to push the Titans lead to 34-17 with 7:53 remaining in the 2nd quarter.

Kingwood Park’s Guerra would add another field goal (this time from 36 yards) to make the halftime score Port Arthur Memorial 42, Kingwood Park 20.

Both teams would score one touchdown in the second half. Kingwood scored on a 53-yard pass from Johansen to Canen Adrian and Port Arthur Memorial scores on a 10-yard run from Sirus Agusta to make the final score, Port Arthur Memorial 50, Kingwood Park 27.
