SAN ANTONIO -- Last Thursday night, the Floresville Tiger freshman football team traveled to Memorial High School to take on the Minutemen for its third district game. The Tigers played well, and returned home with a 21-6 victory.
The Tiger defense played an outstanding game. The defense was led by Brandon Mutz, Travis Quillen, Alex Mermea, Abundio Banda, Gabino Mermea, and a host of other Tigers. The Tigers started the game on defense with a quick three-and-out to get the offense on the field. The first offensive possession by the Tigers included a beautiful drive that was finished by quarterback Koby Wilkerson calling his own number for a 30-yard run for 6 points. Also contributing to the Tigers’ offense were Alex Mermea, Bradley Bunn, Dalton Schroller, Trevor Gonzales, Juan Medina, and many others.
After coming back at halftime up 6-0, the Tigers were able to put up two more touchdowns in the competition. Late in the third quarter, Alex Mermea turned a third-and-long run into a 70-yard touchdown for Floresville. The 2-point conversion was good by Wilkerson, making the score 14-0.
The Minutemen were able to put some points on the board in the fourth quarter with a 20-yard touchdown pass, but were unable to convert the extra point. The Tigers finished the game with a beautiful drive, led by fullbacks Andy Joslin and Stefen Villanueva. It was once again finished by Wilkerson, who ran for a 35-yard touchdown to cap off the 21-6 win.
The Tigers are now 3-3 overall, and 2-1 in district. The Tigers travel to Uvalde this Thursday to take on the Coyotes. Kickoff is at 5 p.m.
