Town Easte Eagles obliterate New Life
Town East 96
New Life 24
SAN ANTONIO -- The Town East Eagles traveled to New Life last Friday night and went away with a 96-24 victory. The team improved to 5-2 on the year, and is now 3-1 in district. New Life fell to 1-4 on the year and 0-4 in district.
The game was a total mismatch from the opening kickoff. Town East received the opening kickoff to start the game, and needed just three plays before Dante Johnson scored on a 9-yard run.
On the ensuing kickoff, New Life fumbled the ball, and Town East scooped it up. The Eagles took just one play from scrimmage to score again, as Johnson walked in from 5 yards out.
On the next kickoff, New Life made a great return as the team ran it back for a touchdown, making the score 14-6 with just under two minutes having rolled off the clock.
Town East blew the game open from there, however, scoring four more times in the first quarter alone. Johnson scored twice from 40 yards out, and John LaMoy scored from 2 yards, then caught a 20-yard pass for a touchdown.
The Eagles made wholesale substitutions to start the second quarter, but it didn’t matter, as Town East continued to score. Drevion Williams returned three kickoffs for touchdowns, and Caleb Ceasor, who was put in at running back, scored on touchdown runs of 2 yards and 22 yards. Matthew Cortez ran the ball one time and scored from 18 yards out. Town East also returned a fumble for a score when Johnson scooped the ball up and ran 15 yards toward the end zone.
On the defensive side of the ball, Cortez led the team with 10 tackles, Johnson had 6, Tyler Smith had 5, and Williams and Marcos Melchor each had 5 tackles.
“I did not intend to run up the score,” said Town East Head Coach Robert Davis, “but I wasn’t going to tell the kids that were out there not to play hard.
“New Life is a team made up of freshmen and sophomores,” Davis added. “They do have a couple of kids that will be very good someday.”
The Town East Eagles will play Fredericksburg Heritage this Friday, Oct. 14, in La Vernia. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. Fredericksburg Heritage is 6-1 on the year, and is riding a six-game winning streak. It also is the No. 1-ranked team in the state.
