Freshman Tiger football
The freshman Tiger football team blew away Beeville by a score of 35-0 last Thursday evening.
The Tigers got things rolling early and never looked back as they jumped out to a 28-0 halftime lead.
Austin Aikens scored the first touchdown on a 10-yard run following a 67-yard drive. Manuel Macias scored the next touchdown on a 1-yard plunge, with Tyler Masur kicking the point-after. Following a fumble recovery, Josh Jeffreys threw a 23-yard touchdown strike to Dadrian Contreras. Matthew Pollok then hit Jared Morin for the 2-point conversion. To close out the first half, Aikens scored his second touchdown on a 10-yard run, with Jeffreys kicking the point after.
After a defensive hold early in the second half, Contreras returned a 65-yard punt return for the final touchdown. Masur, once again, was good on the extra point.
Aikens led all rushing with 150 yards on 14 attempts, and Gaither had 51 yards on three attempts.
The defense recorded its fifth shutout of the year, dominating the Trojan offense. Leading the charge were Jody Trevino, Manuel Macias, Lorenzo Macias, Aikens, Jeffreys, Matthew Pollok, Luke Smith, and Jesus Carriales. Trevino recovered one fumble and Carrizales recovered another.
With the victory, the Tigers move to 8-0 on the year and 3-0 in district. They will host Victoria East next Thursday in their final home game of the year. Kickoff is set for 5 p.m.
