Floresville 43

South San 21



By Robert C. McDonald

Wilson County News



SAN ANTONIO -- To be successful in high school football, you need a balance of good offense and defense. Teams that struggle on one side of the ball or the other often come up short on the scoreboard. Last Friday night, the Floresville Tigers had no trouble balancing their units, as both the offense and defense stepped up and led the Tigers to a 43-21 victory over the South San Bobcats.

The Tiger defense got the ball rolling early for Floresville, as Jonathan Saldana came up with a huge hit to cause a Bobcat fumble. Gary Smith covered up the ball for Floresville, and the Tiger offense took over at the South San 43-yard line. Jacob Flores scored the first touchdown of the game as he reeled in a pass from quarterback Colby Shodrock that went for 31 yards and 6 points. Estevan Mireles added the point-after kick, and the Tigers led 7-0.

Floresville got it done again late in the first quarter with another passing touchdown, this time on a 28-yard strike from Shodrock to Dominique DeWalt. Mireles added the extra point, and Floresville led 14-0 as they moved into the second quarter.

The Bobcats needed to get something going in the second, but the Floresville defense had other plans, as the Tigers forced another fumble and recovered it at the South San 25-yard line. The Bobcat defense made a good stop, though, and the Tigers were forced to settle for a Mireles field goal from 36 yards out.

Trailing 17-0, the Bobcats finally got on the board midway through the second quarter as Brandon Martinez caught a 23-yard pass from Justin Martinez. Noel Castilleja added the extra point, and the Bobcats trailed by 10.

South San went on to score its second touchdown of the game in the closing seconds of the half as Justin Martinez connected with Gerardo Pineda for 17 yards and the touchdown. The kick was good, and the score stood at 17-14 at the half.

South San drew first blood in the second half, as Justin Martinez found some running room and carried it 24 yards for a touchdown. The extra point was good, and the Bobcats took their first lead of the game at 21-17.

The Tigers came storming back on their next possession, and sophomore running back Hector Villegas capped off a good Floresville drive with a 5-yard run across the goal line. Mireles remained perfect kicking the ball, and the Tigers went back on top, 24-21.

Villegas wasn’t finished in the third, though, and added another 6 points with a huge 46-yard run from scrimmage a few minutes later. The extra point was no good, but the visiting Tigers celebrated a 30-21 advantage.

With 7:18 remaining in the game, Villegas ran in for his third touchdown of the night on a 22-yard scamper. Deron Taylor later scored from 13 yards out, and the Tigers converted one of the two extra points for a 43-21 win.

Villegas led the Tiger running game with 237 yards and three touchdowns on 25 carries. Taylor had 40 yards and a touchdown on five carries, and Shodrock ran for 8 yards on two carries.

Shodrock completed five of 14 passing attempts for 105 yards and two touchdowns. Flores caught two passes for 57 yards and a touchdown, DeWalt caught two for 39 yards and a touchdown, and Trey Gillis pulled down one pass for 9 yards.

The defense continued to shine for the Tigers against South San, and Floresville came up with a number of big stops, tackles, and fumbles. The Tigers also came up with interceptions from DeWalt, Matthew Crockett, Chris Draeger, and Tommy Pardo.

The Tigers will face Antonian this Friday, Sept. 23, for Homecoming. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. at Eschenburg Field.
