Things that unravel.
Mysteries. Tangles. Houston County games against Valdosta. Or so it appeared Friday in Freedom Field as the Bears fell to the Wildcats 55-14.
It all started out competitive enough.
Valdosta scored on its opening drive: 65 yards, nine plays and a 7-0 lead. Houston County answered: 80 yards, six plays and a 40-yard run by Wesley Steiner for the touchdown. 7-all with just over five minutes elapsed.

From there, Valdosta scored and scored and scored. By the time the first quarter was up, Houston County was down 20-7. By the half it was 42-7.
The Bears were able to add a touchdown in the second half but that early damage had obviously taken its toll.
The loss left them at 2-5 overall, 0-1 in Region 1-AAAAAA. The Wildcats improved to 4-3, 1-0.
