MJH Bears Football
The 7th grade gold A team traveled to Waller last night to play the Mustangs of Magnolia for the district championship.  The Bears played great on offense and took a while to get adjusted defensively.  The score was 17 to 14 at half time and the Bears blew the game wide open the second half scoring at will and shutting down the Mustang offense.  The Bears left with the 44 to 14 victory and the District Championship!  Great job Bears!!!
The 7th Grade Gold "B" team traveled to Tomball yesterday to compete against the Wolves of Willow Wood.  The Bears played tough on defensive, but weren't able to move the ball against the relentless Wolf defense.  The Bears ultimately lost 12 to 0.  The Gold "B" team finished the season with 4 wins and 3 losses and finished 4th in district.  Thanks again for your hard work and dedication. 
The 7th Grade Purple "B" team played Waller last night.  On the opening drive the team marched down the field for a touchdown then converted the extra point.  Waller came back with a touchdown of their own only to have their extra point blocked.  After that, it was an exciting defensive battle.  Neither team scored again.  At the end of the game the Bears won with class.  With a chance to score again from the 2 yard line, the Quarterback took a knee to run out the clock.  We are proud of the way the boys played.  Way to win with character and style Bears!
