Llano finished the evening 2-1, just like the previous week of the 7-on-7 league that is being hosted by Burnet in May. Ware also was key for Llano’s offense. ‘All he does is make plays,’ Llano head coach Craig Slaughter said. ‘I thought our defense did so much better. Defensively, I was very pleased. There was a lot of playing time for those kids who don’t get a lot of playing time (during the regular season).’

Though the Flames didn’t win a game, head coach Russ Roberts, who officiated the contests, said he can see plenty of positives from his players. ‘We played in this league two years ago and got hammered,’ he said. ‘Tonight, we’re in both games against Llano and Lampasas. Llano beat us by one touchdown.’
