Yorktown 34
Nixon-Smiley 12

NIXON -- Sophomore Tristan Newman ran for more than 100 yards last Friday night against Yorktown, but it wasn’t enough to lift the Mustangs past the Wildcats, and Yorktown came and went with a 34-12 victory.

The Wildcats hit the Mustangs early and often, scoring three touchdowns and a pair of 2-point conversions in the first quarter alone. Yorktown kept its game on the ground, scoring on a trio of rushing touchdowns. The first came from 7 yards out, the second on a 17-yard scamper from Derek Franke, and the third on a 9-yard run. Franke converted two of the Wildcats’ 2-point conversions, and led Yorktown to a 22-0 advantage at the end of the first quarter.

Nixon-Smiley stiffened its defense in the second, holding the Wildcats out of the end zone. Unfortunately, the Mustangs were unable to gain any momentum offensively, and ended the half without a score.

The Wildcats struck first again the second half, as Franke showed off his 4.8-40 speed and broke loose on a 73-yard touchdown run. The 2-point attempt failed, but the Wildcats extended their lead to 28-0.

The Mustangs finally got on the board as Newman showed some speed of his own, breaking by the Wildcat defense from just across midfield for 53 yards and a touchdown. The 2-point attempt was no good, but Nixon-Smiley was finally on the board at 28-6.

In the fourth quarter, the Mustangs added to the board as Miguel Hernandez capped off a Mustang drive with a 1-yard run into the end zone. The 2-point play failed again, and the score stood at 28-12.

Trailing by a pair of touchdowns, Nixon-Smiley worked hard to get the ball back and to put more points on the board, but the Wildcats disrupted that plan with Yorktown’s fifth touchdown of the night. Another failed 2-point conversion attempt was of little consequence, as the Wildcats went on to a 34-12 win.

Newman led the offensive efforts for Nixon-Smiley with 105 yards rushing on 10 carries, and three receptions for 27 yards. Tom Palacio carried the ball 11 times for 73 yards for the Mustangs, Kevin Martinez ran seven times for 15 yards, and Jared Van Auken and Justin Ramos each added 12 yards. Hernandez had another 4. Nick Pena completed four of 11 passing attempts, and Garrett Earlywine had a catch for 10 yards.

With the loss, the Mustangs fall to 0-3 on the season. Nixon-Smiley will have a bye this week, but will need to use every moment it can to prepare for the district season. The Mustangs will open district play at home Friday, Sept. 28, as the team plays host to the Karnes City Badgers. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
