Week three, La Feria headed to Sams Stadium to take on the Brownsville Pace Vikings. A History-making matchup, La Feria and Brownsville Pace have never met on the gridiron prior to this matchup.

Brownsville Pace Scored first on their opening drive, La Feria got their offense started in the second quarter with the Lions picking up a touchdown.
