East Central 17
Victoria East 14


VICTORIA -- Before the season started, East Central Head Football Coach Robert Walker said that while playing on Friday nights is special, he likes playing Saturday games, too. After the Hornets traveled to Victoria last Saturday and returned home with a 17-14 win, he is likely to stand by that comment.
East Central got rolling early in the non-district contest and scored in the first quarter as Chris Armstrong raced 15 yards into the end zone. Blayne Sells came on to add the extra point for the Hornets, and the visitors held a 7-0 lead.
The two teams then battled one another throughout the remainder of the first and second quarters, and Victoria tied things up with 4:23 to play in the half. Jonathan Garner made it happen for the Titans as he ran 4 yards for the touchdown. The extra point was good, and the game was tied at 7-7, but not for long.
The Hornets wasted little time on their next possession, needing less than two minutes to drive into Titan territory, where quarterback Christian Jones connected with Vernest Dotson for 46 yards and the score. Sells booted his second extra point of the game, and the Hornets held a 14-7 lead at the break.
Following a scoreless third quarter of play, the Hornets added to their lead just two minutes into the fourth quarter on a 43-yard field goal by Sells. East Central enjoyed a 17-7 lead, but Victoria still had 10 minutes on the clock, and the Titans were determined to get back into the game.
Victoria put together a good drive and found itself deep in Hornet territory. Brandon Salazar then found Deondrie Lofton open, and an 8-yard pass led to 6 points for the home team. With the extra point, the Titans were right back in the game at 17-14.
The Hornet offensive and defensive units did what they needed to from there, though, and the Titans were held at bay throughout the remainder of the contest. East Central was left celebrating the win as time expired in regulation, and Walker was reminded that playing on Saturday could be a good thing.
Junior running back Armstrong led the way for the Hornet ground attack with 110 yards on 20 carries. Christian Jones added 25 yards on seven carries, and Edwin Dearing ran nine times for 25 yards. Also receiving touches were Jeremy Jones, Dustin Toscano, Aacen Anderson, Braedon Robinson, and Jacob Gonzales.
Christian Jones completed five of 10 passing attempts for 126 yards and a touchdown, and Jeremy Jones threw one pass for 6 yards. Dotson led the receiving corps with two receptions for 59 yards and a touchdown, while Kyle Ramon pulled in three passes for 70 yards, and Toscano added one catch for 4 yards.
With the win, the Hornets improve to 2-3 on the year. East Central will now enjoy its bye week as it begins to prepare for Corpus Christi King. The game is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 8, with kickoff at 2 p.m.
