Lake Travis View contributing writer
Some key halftime adjustments – and a healthy dose of Abe Willows – carried Lake Travis to a 48-24 win over Waco Midway in Friday’s season opener.
Midway’s Korey Chatman bulled in from a yard out midway through the third quarter, capping a 14-play, 76-yard drive and trimming the Cavaliers’ lead to 20-17. But the Panthers, who’d stymied the Cavaliers’ offense early, ran out of answers and Lake Travis pulled away with three straight touchdowns.
The Cavaliers relied on Willows early. The senior running back had 117 of his 140 yards in the first half as Lake Travis led 17-10. Charlie Brewer struggled early, completing just seven of 14 for 49 yards in the opening half, but he found his rhythm after the break. He completed 14 of 17 passes after halftime for 247 yards and two scores. Brewer also added a 33-yard touchdown run.
