Bandera built a 34-2 halftime lead en route to a 48-9 win over Pearsall in the season finale for the Mavericks last Friday, November 5 at Bulldog Stadium.
The loss was Pearsall’s tenth of the season and 11th straight dating back to the Mavs’ 57-8 bi-district loss to Sinton in the 2020 season.
Pearsall’s 0-10 mark is the first winless campaign for the school since the Mavs were winless in 2010 and 2011.
The Mavericks were outgunned from the start as Bandera relied on its strong running game to take control in the early going.
The Bulldogs cracked the scoreboard midway through the first as they went in from 11 yards out to take a 7-0 lead.
Despite a solid first quarter effort, the Mavs surrendered a second rushing touchdown late in the first as Bulldogs’ running back Brock Johnson went in from four yards out.
Bandera made one of its only mistakes of the night on their next possession as the shotgun snap sailed over the quarterback’s head and out of the endzone for a safety.
The spark was quickly extinguished, however, as the Mavericks fumbled one play after receiving the free kick following the safety.
Bandera capitalized less than two minutes later, crossing the goal line on a 20-yard scoring strike. The PAT made it 21-2 with 7:29 to play in the half.
The Bulldogs would add a 10-yard touchdown run with 3:20 left in the second and a four-yard touchdown run with :14 remaining in the half to build a 34-2 advantage.
Bandera would add two more scores in the second half to cap the scoring.
Pearsall closes out the season at 0-10 overall and 0-5 and sixth in District 14-4A, Division II.
Carrizo Springs won the district title with a 10-0 record overall and 5-0 league mark.
Devine (8-2, 4-1), Hondo (4-5, 3-2) and Bandera (6-4, 2-3) will join the Wildcats as playoff representatives this season.
