NIXON -- With a win over Stockdale, the Nixon-Smiley Mustangs would have guaranteed themselves a spot in the playoffs. The Brahmas also needed a win to seal their bid for the postseason. Add in that the schools are only a few miles apart, and you have the recipe for a great gridiron matchup. The two teams took the field of battle in Nixon last Friday night, and when the dust settled, it was Stockdale taking home the big win, 50-29.

Stockdale struck first in the game just two minutes into play, as Brahma senior quarterback Colton West hit fellow senior Trevor Baumann for 58 yards and a touchdown. West kicked the extra point, and the score was 7-0. The Brahmas then made it a 13-point game, as Stockdale drove deep into Mustang territory and then capped off the drive as West connected with Cody Hastings for a 5-yard touchdown pass.

The Mustang offense finally built up some steam in the later minutes of the first quarter, and scored on a 1-yard run. With the extra point good, the score was 13-7 in favor of Stockdale.

The Brahmas immediately responded to the Nixon-Smiley touchdown, though, answering with another of their own. West threw his third touchdown pass of the game with 1:39 to play in the quarter, as he connected with Dustin Mosier for 65 yards and the score. Hastings ran in the 2-point conversion, and it was 21-7 in favor of the Stockdale.

The Brahmas’ scoring rampage continued in the second quarter, as Baumann capped off a Brahma drive with 1-yard run across the goal line. West added the point-after, and the Nixon fans were looking for reasons to cheer, with the score now 28-7.

Having already thrown three touchdowns, one might think West was content with his game efforts, but he was not. He added a fourth touchdown before halftime, this time on the defensive side of things, as he intercepted a Mustang pass and returned it 30 yards for the score. West ran in the 2-point conversion himself, and the score was 36-7 midway through the second quarter.

The Mustangs then responded with a pair of touchdowns of their own. Nixon-Smiley threw two touchdowns. The first went for 40 yards, while the second was good for 45 yards and a score. Following a pair of extra points, the score was 36-21, and it was looking like a game again. But two minutes later, West scored yet again for Stockdale, this time on a 3-yard run, giving the Brahmas a 43-21 lead heading into the locker room.

Stockdale made it a 49-21 game early in the third quarter, as Baumann showed his speed and scored from 39 yards out. West added the point-after, and the Brahmas seemed content at the half-century mark with 50 points on the board.

Nixon-Smiley continued to play its brand of football, but couldn’t make a comeback against the Brahmas. The Mustangs did find the end zone one final time in the fourth quarter, as the Mustang passing game connected for a 60-yard touchdown. The Mustangs ran in the 2-point conversion, and the final score stood at 50-29.

For Stockdale, West’s incredible night was highlighted by 224 yards and three touchdowns through the air on 10 of 14 passing attempts. Baumann was the team’s leading receiver with 118 yards and a touchdown, and Mosier added 65 yards and a score. Hastings also had one grab for 34 yards and a touchdown.

On the ground, Baumann led Stockdale by carrying the ball 11 times for 100 yards. Matt Valadez ran 10 times for 85 yards, and West added 75 yards on 10 carries.

While the regular season is over for Nixon-Smiley, the Brahmas still have one game remaining. Stockdale will host the Dilley Wolves -- the team with which they are currently tied for second in the district. Nixon-Smiley is sitting in fourth, just out of the playoff picture, but if the Brahmas can beat the Wolves, it may open the playoff door to the Mustangs. After all, Nixon-Smiley beat Dilley earlier this season.

Kickoff for Stockdale and Dilley will be this Friday, Nov. 4, at 7:30 p.m. on Bobby Russell Field.

Scoring information and individual statistics for the Nixon-Smiley Mustangs were unavailable as of press time.
