CYPRESS, Texas (KTRE) - We take you out to Cy-Fair Stadium for the Class 2A Division 1 state semifinal between the Timpson Bears and the Refugio Bobcats. It was not until the first drive of the second quarter when the beast was unleashed: Terry Bussey, doing what he does. He kept the ball, shook some tacklers and was gone. He took the ball at 85 yards all the way to the house, putting the Bears up seven to nothing.

On the next drive, Bussey passed the ball to Burton, who took it in for a 50-yard TD pass, putting Timpson up 14 to nothing.

Things were going in the Bears’ favor, until Refugio decided to answer with a pass to wide receiver Ernest Campbell, who went 25 yards to cut the score in half: 14 to seven.

Then, late in the second quarter, just before halftime, Refugio used the same formula, going back to Campbell for another reception. He broke free and went 58 yards. Just like that, the score was all tied up at 14 going into halftime.

The battle continued in the second half. Tied at 21 apiece, with 12 seconds left in the fourth period, Refugio went for a field goal to win it. It was good, and the Refugio Bobcats ended the Timpson Bears’ season by a final score of 24-21.
