Trojans drop Mavs 50-0 in non-district
Another slow start and three turnovers resulted in yet another shutout loss for the Mavericks last week as they dropped a 50-0 decision to the Beeville Jones Trojans on the road.
Beeville jumped out to a 20-0 lead in the first and held a 36-0 advantage at the half in the lopsided win over the Mavericks.
A pair of first half fumbles and an interception directly resulted in two Trojan scores while field position also played a factor in the outcome.
Beeville constantly worked with a short field after failed Pearsall drives, short punts and good punt returns set the Trojans up near midfield for much of the first half.
Pearsall’s only threatening possession in the first half resulted in a fumble near midfield just before the half.
Trey Barefield, Victor Gonzales, Darion Perez and Cade Elder all had rushing touchdowns for the Trojans.
Quarterback Victor Gonzales accounted for three of the Trojans scores as he went in from 34 yards out in the first for the first points of the night. He also passed for a pair of scores, connecting with Colin Gomez and Cade Elder.
Barefield then went in on an eight-yard touchdown run to make it 13-0 with 2:11 remaining in the first.
A short Mavs punt was returned to their 34-yard line by Beeville who then connected on a 28-yard pass play to the five-yard line. A play later, Perez went in from five yards out to make it 20-0 with :33 left in the first.
Gonzales tossed a five-yard strike early in the second as the lead ballooned to 27-0. Caleb Washington then stepped in front of a Matthew Hughes pass and went the distance for a 35-yard interception for a touchdown 20 seconds later. That score made it 33-0 and put the Trojans completely in control.
A Maverick fumble gave the ball right back to Beeville on the Pearsall 34-yard line. That turnover resulted in three points as the Trojans belted a 27-yard field goal to make it 36-0.
Pearsall’s third turnover of the half came on their most promising drive as a fumble ended that threat near midfield.
Beeville would add a pair of scores in the second half, crossing the goal line in the third and fourth quarters.
Pearsall stats were not available at presstime.
The Mavericks will look to regroup this week as they hit the road for the fourth time in as many weeks to take on the 2-1 Holy Cross Knights Friday night.
The contest was originally scheduled for Saturday at 2 p.m. but has been moved to Friday, September 17 at 7 p.m. at Holy Cross Field at 426 N. San Felipe St. in San Antonio.
Holy Cross dropped their season opener to Boerne Geneva but have since outscored their last two opponents 76-7 in wins over Corpus Christi John Paul II and Austin Hyde Park.
