UVALDE -- The Floresville Tiger freshman football team traveled to Uvalde last Thursday to take on the Coyotes.
The Tigers were led by quarterback Koby Wilkerson and running back Alex Mermea on offense. Wilkerson ended the first drive of the game with a 30-yard scramble to put the Tigers up 7-0.
Defensively, the Tigers were led by Travis Quillen, Abundio Banda, and Andy Joslin. The Tiger defense played an outstanding game, allowing only 6 points in the competition.
The second touchdown of the game was scored when Wilkerson hooked up with Bradley Bunn on a third-and-long play from 40 yards out, making the score 14-0.
After another great stop by the Tiger defense inside their own 10-yard line, the Coyotes were able to put up 2 points after a Tiger fumble in the end zone for a safety, to make the score 12-2 at the half.
In the second half, the Tigers would be just as tough. After the Tiger defense stopped the Coyotes and made them punt, Wilkerson returned it for a 65-yard touchdown, making the score 18-2.
The Coyotes were able to put one in the end zone on their next drive, making the score 18-8.
In the last quarter of the game, the Tiger offense put together another awesome drive led by the offensive line of Trevor Gonzales, Banda, Josh Roberts, Colby Bauer, and Tyler Leyva. The drive was capped off when Wilkerson hit Bunn for a 35-yard touchdown pass, making the final score 24-8 in favor of the Tigers.
The freshmen improved their district record to 4-1. They will play at home this week against Medina Valley. The game starts at 5 p.m.
