East loses to Gregory-Portland 29-7

It’s been a rocky start to 2019 for VISD football.

A night after the Warriors lost to San Benito to fall to 0-2, East stumbled against Gregory-Portland, losing 29-7 as they continue searching for their first win of the season.

“We’ve got a young secondary and we just keep trying to improve,” said defensive coordinator Chris Lackey after the game. “We had a few miscommunications that we can improve on but I like that we’re moving in the right direction.”

East will have a chance to right the ship next Friday when they travel to Corpus to face Miller. The following week, East will host West in the 2019 Battle for the Boot.
