JV Tigers ground Rockets
SAN ANTONIO -- The Floresville High School junior varsity football team made up for a loss last week to Medina Valley with a nice win over the Kennedy Rockets.
The Tigers started the game off with a nice drive that ended with a run by quarterback Dillon Gaither. Gaining some tough yards on the drive was running back Cesar Hernandez. The offensive line, which played well all night, was led by Corey Opiela, Malik Lehmberg, Eric Chavez-Soliz, Diego Perez, and Tyler Sanchez.
Leading 7-0 late in the second quarter, the Tiger offense was on the move again when Gaither hit Luke Smith on a short pass. Smith turned on the jets and outran the Kennedy defense for a 45-yard score. Smith would later have another touchdown catch on a nice pass from Gaither.
The last touchdown of the night came on a run to the left side by Hernandez. To top off the scoring for the night, the Tigers lined up in a formation reminiscent of the ’85 Bears, with offensive lineman Richard “Sasquatch” Palacios in the backfield. Palacios took the ball and rumbled into the end zone for the 2-point conversion run. Aaron Balles was perfect on his three point-after kicks of the night.
The defense played a good game as well, led by C.J. Felux, Luke Smith, Jesus Carrizales, Sebastian Rodriguez, Alex Gonzales, Gaither, and Tyler Masur. Masur had an interception that he returned for 40 yards before being tackled at the 5-yard line.
The final score had the Tigers up 29-8, which improved their record on the season to 6-3 overall, and 4-2 in district play. The junior varsity team will end its season this Thursday at Southside.
