Freshman Tigers lose first game
The Floresville Tiger freshman football team lost its first game of the year to Victoria East last week by the score of 22-6.
The Tigers battled to a 0-0 tie after the first half. Down 14-0, the Tigers battled back with a score from Austin Aikens on a 2-yard run. The offense continued to chip away throughout the second half, but could not get into the end zone.
Defensively, Dadrian Contreras recovered a fumble and Aikens recovered another fumble after C.J. Felux stripped the ball from the running back. Joey Martinez also recovered a fumble on an onside kick. Other standouts included Matthew Pollok, Jared Morin, Luke Smith, Jody Trevino, Lorenzo Neaves, and Tony Grimaldo.
The Tigers are now 8-1 on the year and 3-1 in district. They will travel to Port Lavaca this Thursday, Nov. 3, for their final game of the season.
