In the south of the city, the two football teams moved the ball up and down the field. They were evenly matched, and at half time the score was tied 0-0. Austin scored twice in the second half, but in the final quarter Bowie tied it up again. The bands shouted and played. The crowds screamed and cheered. In the final 3 seconds of the game, Austin scored a field goal and won the game. Their band played their fight song. The north stands went wild.
In the north of the city, a football game announcer called for a moment of silence for a Pflugerville boy who died when a car full of Connally High School band members rolled twice in the median of the interstate earlier in the day. The band was not at the stadium. But before the second quarter, they filed in and marched around the field with the drill team and the flag corps while the drums played a cadence and parents and boosters walked behind.
