That bright spot to the east last Friday night wasn't Venus. It was Glen Rose.
The Tigers knocked Venus out of orbit in Friday's conference game by a score of 50-22.
Maybe the Bulldogs got a sense of what was to come after the Tigers' very first possession resulted in a touchdown.
Glen Rose improved its record to 2-4 this year with the win.
The Tigers host Kennedale in 3A Region 1, District 8 battle on Friday night. The Wildcats, with a 4-2 record, come off a 55-0 loss in the league battle against Alvarado.
Game time at Tiger Stadium is 7:30 p.m.
