Town East 49

Castle Hills 31

SAN ANTONIO -- With a solid 49-31 win over Castle Hills last Saturday afternoon, the Town East Eagle football team improved to 3-1 on the season, and earned a 1-0 start to its district season.

“It was a good win for us,” said Town East Head Coach Robert Davis. “We controlled the ball and the line of scrimmage. We really were in control the whole time.”

The opening kickoff went to Castle Hills, but the Town East defense came up with an interception and the offense punched it in for a touchdown and 2-point conversion. Castle Hills came back to close the gap and make it an 8-7 contest, but the Eagles responded with another touchdown to lead it 14-7 at the end of the first quarter. By the end of the half, Town East was in front 28-18.

The Eagles continued to play their game in the second, slowing their normal tempo, and keeping the ball on the ground for the most part. Town East stayed in control of things, and led 49-24 with just two minutes to play in the game. Castle Hills was able to score again, but it was of little consequence, as the Eagles held on for the win.

In addition to a mark in the wins column, the victory was important to the Eagles since it was their first district game of the year. It was also the first season loss for Castle Hills, which made things feel a little sweeter for Town East.

Freshman Dante Johnson had another great game for Town East, as the youngster ran for four touchdowns and threw another. He ran for more than 150 yards on the night. Ben Guerra also had a big night for Town East, throwing the team’s other two touchdowns.

The Eagles will now begin preparing for Lifegate, and Davis said it’s going to be a battle.

“Lifegate is the No. 2 team in the state right now,” Davis said, “so we have our work cut out for us.”

The game will be played this Friday, Sept. 23, beginning at 7:30 p.m. in Seguin.
