SACK ATTACK

By MANUEL AZOCAR III

 

For a third straight season, Pearsall has pulled out of the gates quickly, jumping out to a 3-0 start this season after topping Blanco in a defensive struggle last Friday night at Mack Laxson Field.

 

The Mavs were 8-0 to open the 2015 season and were 4-0 a year ago. This year's 3-0 mark, however, has been razor-thin.

 

Pearsall struggled with penalties and turnovers once more in holding on for a 14-13 win over the 0-3 Panthers.

TAKING A STAND

Mavs overcome four turnovers, defense holds Memorial in final minutes for 20-14 win.

By MANUEL AZOCAR III

Pearsall overcame four turnovers including two in the red zone to hold on for a 20-14 win over the San Antonio Memorial Minutemen Friday, September 8 at Mack Laxson Field.

The offense rolled up over 300 yards of offense and never punted while the defense surrendered some big plays, it also came up with several in preserving the win.

“Our biggest thing was getting out with no injuries,” PHS AD and Head Football Coach David Silva said. “We had over 300 yards of offense and no punts, but with four turnovers we felt like we left at least 12 points on the field due to turnovers and kicking miscues.

Cowboys throttle Badgers, face rival Wolves this Friday

Cotulla off to best start since 2012 with 31-13 win last week.

By MANUEL AZOCAR III

Cotulla is off to its best start since going 2-1 in 2012 and heads into Rivalry Week against Dilley unbeaten after torching Karnes City 31-13 last Friday, September 8.

Cotulla scored twice in each of the second and fourth quarters and at one point held an 18-0 lead on the Badgers in the third quarter.

“I felt that the team played better but we're still missing too many offensive line blocking assignments,” AD and Head Football Coach Kelly Shull said. “Malachi (Romez) is still not comfortable in the pocket and needs work on game decisions. Our receivers are running much better routes and catching the ball better but we still have a lot of room for improvement.

HIGHLIGHT NIGHT

By MANUEL AZOCAR III

Despite an inauspicious start; surrendering a touchdown on its first play of the season; Pearsall’s defense turned in a dominant performance in helping the Mavs top San Antonio Burbank 27- 19 in the 2017 season opener Friday night, September 1 at the SAISD Sports Complex.

For a veteran squad boasting 24 seniors, the Mavericks sputtered out of the gates with three penalties in four plays on their opening possession and surrendering a 46-yard touchdown run to the Bulldogs on their first play of the season.

The unit would quickly turn things around in an impressive performance that nearly overshadowed senior running back Oscar Cubriel’s record-tying night.
