La Vernia 37
Poteet 20

POTEET -- The La Vernia Bears needed a win last Friday night in Poteet in order to right the ship and salvage their season. The Bears were 2-5 going into the game and 0-1 in district play. They had to have a win over the Aggies, and they got it with a great second-half effort en route to a 37-20 victory.

The scoring got started early in the first quarter as the Bears moved the ball into Poteet territory. The Aggies held the Bears from scoring a touchdown, but La Vernia Head Coach Bo Robinson has faith in his kicker, Alec Dews, and the senior came through with a 28-yard field goal.

Poteet came right back down the field, though, and scored its first points of the game on a 4-yard touchdown run. The conversion was no good, but the home team celebrated a 6-3 lead over the visiting Bears.

La Vernia didn’t throw as much against the Aggies as it has done in recent weeks, but the team made its passing attempts count on the night. In the opening seconds of the second quarter, La Vernia quarterback Colby Sims connected with Rudy Mendoza for 34 yards and a Bear touchdown. The point-after attempt was no good, but La Vernia went back on top, 9-6, with 11:25 to play in the half.

Just as they had done initially, the Aggies gave the Bears an immediate response, and marched down the field on their ensuing drive. The Aggies then went to the air for a passing touchdown of their own, scoring from 32 yards out. The 2-point attempt was stopped by the Bears, and the score stood at 12-9 in favor of Poteet.

The lead for the Aggies would be very short-lived, however, as the Bears needed just 23 seconds to score their second touchdown of the game on a 3-yard touchdown run from Vince Gill. The Bears came up short on the 2-point conversion, but once again led the game by the score of 15-12.

The fast-paced second quarter wasn’t over, though, and Poteet wasn’t done scoring in the half. The Aggies moved the ball back down the field, and eventually scored on a 6-yard touchdown run. The 2-point conversion was good for the Aggies, and Poteet led 20-15 with 4:56 to play in the half.

The teams traded possessions to close out the first half, and Poteet carried the lead into the break. When the teams returned for the second half, however, it was an entirely different story.

The Bears made some great second-half adjustments, and dominated the Aggies during the third and fourth quarters. Not only did La Vernia hold Poteet out of the end zone throughout the remainder of the game, but the Bears also hung another 22 points on the Aggies.

The first second-half touchdown was courtesy of Landon Richter, as he capped off a La Vernia drive with a 6-yard run into the end zone. Richter then ran in the 2-point conversion, and the Bears took a 23-20 lead over the Aggies.

Richter wasn’t quite finished scoring on the night, though, and added a 9-yard touchdown run in the closing seconds of the third quarter. Dews booted the extra point, and the Bears led by 10 going into the final 12 minutes of the game.

The final score of the night came midway through the fourth quarter as the Aggies found themselves backed up deep in their own territory. The team was forced to punt on fourth down, but didn’t defend the punt quite well enough. The kick was blocked, and Jose Sahagun scooped it up for the Bears, giving the team 6 more points. Dews kicked the extra point, and the final score stood at 37-20.

Sims completed three of seven passing attempts for 51 yards and a touchdown. Mendoza was the leading receiver with 34 yards and the score, while Colby Skelton added 17 yards on two grabs. Gill led the ground game with 118 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries, while Richter ran 14 times for 70 yards and two touchdowns. Levi Andrews ran twice for 11 yards, and Adam Alcorta had two rushes for 3 yards.

The win lifts the Bears to 3-5 on the year and evens the team’s district record at 1-1. La Vernia will be at home this Friday, Nov. 2, as the Bears host the winless Sam Houston Hurricanes. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. at Bear Stadium.
