Floresville 49
Uvalde 14

UVALDE -- Thanks in part to a big 49-14 win over Uvalde last Friday night, the Floresville Tiger football team is now 4-0 in district play, and has sole ownership of 29-4A’s top spot.

The Ruben Benavides- and Hector Villegas-led Tiger running game racked up 283 yards and five touchdowns on 46 carries throughout the night. Tiger quarterback Colby Shodrock also completed 14 of 16 passes for another 178 yards and two additional touchdowns.

The first score of the night came early in the first quarter as Villegas capped off a Tiger drive with a 1-yard run over the goal line. Esteban Mireles added the point-after, and the score was 7-0 in favor of Floresville.

Things settled down a bit throughout the remainder of the first, but the Tigers got rolling in the second quarter with three additional touchdowns. The first came at the 11:10 mark of the second quarter as Benavides carried the ball into the end zone from 8 yards out. Mireles booted the extra point, and the score was 14-0 in favor of the Tigers. Later, with 3:02 to play in the half, Shodrock connected with John Huber for 47 yards and a touchdown. The passing wasn’t done, though, and after a big Tiger defensive stand, Floresville’s offense went back on the field and scored on the final play of the half with a 2-yard passing strike from Shodrock to sophomore Troy Hughey. Mireles remained perfect on extra points, and the Tigers enjoyed a 28-0 lead at halftime.

Following the break, the Coyotes put their first 6 points on the board with a 14-yard touchdown run from Marco Blanco. The Tigers responded quickly, however, scoring on their next possession with a 10-yard touchdown run by Villegas, his second of the game. Mireles added the point-after to make it 35-7.

The Tigers scored yet another touchdown with 8:45 to play in the fourth, as sophomore Cainan Payne ran one in from a yard out. Mireles added the point-after, and it was all but over at 42-7. The Coyotes came right back, however, taking just over a minute off the clock before scoring on a 20-yard passing play from Jerry Almarez to Max Buysee. The extra point made it 42-14.

With more than half of the quarter remaining, the Tigers went back to work, and ate up clock as best they could. Floresville drove deep into Uvalde territory and then scored on a 1-yard run from Travis Tieken. Mireles went seven-for-seven on extra points, and the Tigers celebrated a 49-14 victory.

Benavides led the Tigers with 125 rushing yards on 10 touches, and Villegas tallied another 102 yards on 18 carries. Huber, Tieken, Shodrock, and Xavier Lara also ran for positive yardage.

Shodrock threw the ball well, hitting on 14 of 16 attempts for 178 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions. Hughey was his favorite target of the night, catching six passes for 51 yards and a touchdown. Aaron Laskowski caught three passes for 37 yards, and Huber caught two for 55 yards and a touchdown. Payne and Benavides also had catches for 9 and 8 yards, respectively.

The Tiger defense bent a little during the night by allowing 296 yards of offense to Uvalde, but the team never broke, holding the Coyotes to just 14 points. Uvalde didn’t have any fumbles, but Trey Gillis picked off a Coyote pass for the Tigers.

The win puts the Tigers at 6-1 on the year and 4-0 in district play. The Tigers will be at home this Friday, Oct. 26, as the Medina Valley Panthers come to town. Medina Valley is 5-2 on the year and 3-1 in district play.

Tiger Head Coach Jeff Luna said he hopes to see everyone at the game this Friday, and encourages fans to wear maroon for a special “Maroon Out” night.

Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. this Friday at Eschenburg Field.
