FLORESVILLE -- The Floresville Wildcats had two teams in the Texas Youth Football Association’s (TYFA) Division 1 state title games this past Sunday, Dec. 9, at Manor Mustang Stadium in Manor. The teams played well, and while the Midgets came up a bit short, the Flag team took home the title.
The Midget team (9-3) started the day’s action in a tough-fought game against the Austin Steelers (11-0). The boys played with their hearts but came up short at the end of the game. The final score was 34-6. The Midgets had a wonderful season and should be extremely proud of their accomplishments.
The Flag game followed the Midget game. These boys took on a very tough Cy-Creek Cowboys (11-0) team. The Wildcats (8-3) struck first and the battle was on, as the scoring went back and forth. The Wildcats were down 14-13 midway through the second quarter and then scored again with seconds left before halftime to go into the break with a 19-14 lead. They never trailed again. The final score was 31-27.
This is the Wildcat Flag team’s second state title in three years, and congratulations go to both teams on outstanding seasons. The Wildcats organization thanks everyone who went out and supported the teams during the season. The teams could not have been successful without the support of the community, families, and friends.
The City of Floresville and Mayor Diana Garza will be hosting a parade in honor of all the Wildcat teams and their accomplishments this season. The parade will be held Saturday, Dec. 15, at 6 p.m. in downtown Floresville. Everyone is invited to go out and show support one more time for the state champion Flag team, the state runner-up Midget team, the state semifinal Junior team, the state playoff Rookie team, and all the wonderfully spirited Wildcats cheerleaders.
