The La Feria Lions kicked off the 2022 Texas High School Football Season against the Donna Redskins. High expectations are on the Lions, who had a great 2021, finishing as the 16-4A Division One District Champions. After a short stint in the playoffs, the Lions took advantage of a lengthy offseason to prepare for 2022.

The Lion’s defense was put to the test as the Donna Redskins went on the offensive early, scoring two touchdowns in the first quarter, jumping to a 14-0 lead. The Redskins would extend their lead to 21-0 on a touchdown three minutes into the second quarter. La Feria would score as Justin Rodriguez caught a 10 yard touchdown pass into the endzone to make it 21-7. Donna would pick up two more touchdowns before the half to lead 35-7.

In the Third quarter, Donna tacked on one more touchdown to lead 42-7 in the third quarter. La Feria would boost the offense in the fourth quarter as The Lions scored two more touchdowns before the final whistle. Despite the strong effort by the Lions, Donna would prevail 42-21.

La Feria will take on PSJA Southwest next as they look to prepare for a lengthy district.
