Kilgore Defeated By Top Ranked La Marque

The Kilgore Bulldogs attempted to defend  their state title Saturday against number one La Marque. It was a similiar situation with the roles reveresed. Last year, the Bulldogs upset the the La marque cougars, the 2003 defending champs.
This year La Marque would try and flip the script.
The two teams met at Moorhead Stadium in Conroe. 
The final score: La Marque 31, Kilgore 21.
The Bulldogs defeated in their run at a second straight title. Coach Mike Vallery spoke to KLTV about the games outcome.
"We knew coming in that La Marque was a big play team and we couldn't give them anything and that's the thing we did today," Coach Vallery said. "We gave them some things we don't normally give up and you can't at this level of play. A good football team like La Marque you can't give them anything so we did and it cost us."
