Stockdale 20

Cotulla 35

COTULLA -- Although mathematically eliminated from the playoffs as they headed into their final game of the year, the Stockdale Brahmas were looking to close out the 2012 season on a high note. Unfortunately, Cotulla was looking to do the same thing, and the Cowboys put together a great second-half effort to secure a 35-20 win over the Brahmas.

Cotulla took a 7-0 lead in the first quarter, and went on to tack on another 6 points in the second. Stockdale wasn’t held out of the first-half scoring, however, and put up 7 points of its own with a 4-yard Matt Valadez rushing touchdown and a Travis Covington extra-point kick. As the teams took a breather for halftime, it was a one-possession game with the Cowboys on top of the Brahmas, 13-7.

Cotulla added 8 points to its total in the third quarter, but Stockdale kept pace, adding 7 additional points of its own to the board. The touchdown came with 4:25 to play in the quarter on a thrilling 73-yard run from scrimmage by Valadez. Covington came on for the extra point, and when the teams moved into the final quarter of play, it remained close at 21-14 in favor of the Cowboys.

The Brahmas scored one final touchdown with 2:45 to play in the game as Valadez completed his “hat trick” with a 43-yard touchdown run. The conversion failed, and the Brahmas ended the game with 20 total points. Cotulla added 14 in the fourth and final quarter, though, sealing a win at home, 35-20.

Valadez had another outstanding game for the Brahmas, accounting for 257 of the team’s 297 yards of offense. He did it on the ground, rushing 22 times for an average of nearly 12 yards per carry. Darion McMahan added 35 yards of rushing offense on 4 carries, but three additional Stockdale runners finished the night with negative yardage, hurting the Brahmas’ final numbers. Hunter Pierdolla caught two Jacob Cardenas passes for 14 yards, Josh Vela caught a pass for 9 yards, and Valadez caught a pass for 4 more.

The Stockdale defense was able to slow the Cotulla ground game, but still allowed 235 yards of rushing offense on 51 carries. The Cowboys also picked up 151 yards through the air. The Brahma defense recovered a Cotulla fumble, as well.

The loss drops the Brahmas to 5-5 on the year, and the team finishes 3-4 in District 15-2A DII play. Stockdale will have a number of players returning next season, and the team will look to be even more competitive in a large and talented football district.
