JV Tigers shut out Memorial
The Floresville High School junior varsity Tiger football team put together an impressive performance last Thursday night against the Memorial Minutemen, earning a 56-0 win.
The offensive line and the defense were dominant all night. The Tigers scored early and often with the first scoring run by Dillon Gaither. Gaither would add another touchdown run later in the game, as well. Gaither wasn’t the only Tiger running back to get in the end zone, though. Adding to the rushing touchdowns were Marcus Avila and Xavier Cantwell, who had two touchdown runs. Quarterback Josh Jeffreys had one of his better games of the season, throwing for one touchdown to Tyler Masur and putting another one in the end zone on a fourth-and-1 with a quarterback sneak that turned into a 20-yard touchdown run. The offensive line of Corey Opiela, Malik Lehmberg, Eric Chavez-Soliz, Joshia Ramirez, Tyler Sanchez, Jody Trevino, and Dillon Condra were great all night as they controlled the line of scrimmage.
The defense wasn’t to be outdone as it pitched a shutout and created four turnovers. Jesus Avila-Barba was responsible for two of the turnovers, as he intercepted two passes on the night. Sebastian Rodriguez also had a fumble recovery. Along with the turnovers, the defense played fast and physical all night, and were led by C.J. Felux, Luke Smith, Jesus Carrizales, Jeffreys, Gaither, Tony Grimaldo, Cantwell, and Ramirez. Adding to the scoring defensively was Alex Gonzales, who returned an interception for a touchdown.
The special teams got into the mix as well with a surprise onside kick that was recovered by Smith. Smith also recovered another kickoff that was muffed by Memorial. Aaron Balles was perfect on the night, going eight for eight on extra points.
All in all, the Tigers had their best showing of the season with a final score of 56-0. The team is now 4-2 overall, and 2-1 in district play. Congratulations on a great win, Tigers!
