DISTRICT 15-3 A, DIVISION II
Pearsall took advantage of a Crystal City turnover to score the first points of the night but the Javelinas’ running game took control from there as they rolled off 28 unanswered points to top the Mavericks 28-7 in district football action last Friday at Mack Laxson Field.
The loss marked the Mavs seventh straight this season and eighth consecutive dating back to last season.
In a battle of two winless programs, the Mavs took the upper hand early in the contest as they recovered a fumbled punt snap at the Crystal City eight-yard line.
One play later running back Joey Ramirez went in from eight yards out to put Pearsall on top 7-0 with 3:43 to play in the first.
Crystal City answered in the second quarter and got back into the game thanks to three Pearsall interceptions. The Javelinas capped a drive in the second with a three-yard run at the 7:05 mark of the quarter to make it 7-7.
A second interception gave the Javelinas possession at the Mavericks’ 46-yard line. They would cash that turnover in on a one-yard score with 34 seconds remaining in the half and take a 13-7 lead.
After a scoreless third, the Javelinas put the game away as they picked off a third pass and took it 35 yards for a touchdown and a 21-7 lead early in the fourth.
A fourth touchdown capped the scoring as the Javelinas took the 28-7 victory.
Pearsall will hit the road this week as they take on district front-runner and unbeaten Carrizo Springs on Friday.
The Wildcats are coming off an 18-0 shutout win over Bandera and have held five of their seven opponents scoreless this season.
With three games remaining, Pearsall sits last in the standings at 0-2. The Wildcats are in first at 2-0 while Devine, Hondo, Bandera and Crystal City are all 1-1. Hondo and Crystal City hold a tiebreaker edge over the Mavs.
