PNG 2021 football schedule includes big home games
PORT NECHES – The Port Neches-Groves Indians now know who they play in the 2021 football season after the sports department released the fall sports calendar this week.
Fans keen to wrap up the reservation won’t have to wait long. PNG start their out-of-district schedule with two home games against Jasper and Beaumont United, respectively. PNG is playing its last out-of-district match against Tomball.
Last year was marked by two close games for the Indians and BU and Tomball. The Indians parted ways, which were decided by a combined six points.
“It’s always exciting to release the schedule,” said head coach Faircloth. “I am always excited about the season and I can see our players compete and see their hard work paying off. We still have a long way to go. We must have a great summer and a great August two a day. “
The Indians finished last season 5-6 overall and 4-3 in District 21-5A.
Faircloth is anxiously awaiting the first home game in front of a crowded stadium.
“This is what makes PNG so special,” he said. “We have a packed crowd on Friday night. Last year we weren’t able to do that, but I’m delighted to be back with the fans this year. This is what PNG is. “
PNG’s district opener will be against Mid-County Madness rival Nederland at The Reservation. This will be the second consecutive season the two teams face off in the first week of the District game. The Indians came away with a last-second victory over the Bulldogs in 2020.
Last season, the Indians had three losses with a combined score of 168-68 against Barbers Hill, Texas City and Crosby. In the fall, PNG will face all of these teams at The Reservation.
PNG made the playoffs as fourth seed, before losing to Fort Bend Marshall 21-14 in the first round.
The road to the 2021 season begins June 7 as PNG begins summer training.
