East Central 21
Brennan 49

SAN ANTONIO -- After a pair of wins to start the 2013 season, East Central’s football team hit a roadblock last Thursday when the Hornets traveled to Farris Stadium for the second time in as many weeks. Brennan was the host team this go-around, and the Bears helped themselves to a 49-21 win over the Hornets.

East Central’s offense likes to move fast, but the Brennan defense was well-prepared. It took the Bears just 15 seconds to exploit the Hornets, as a Hornet passing attempt was picked off and returned 20 yards for a Brennan touchdown.

The Hornets went right back to work following the kickoff, and quickly drove down the field. Javion Polk then capped off the quick drive with a 3-yard run across the goal line. Dennis Chavez booted the extra point, and the game was tied at 7-all.

Brennan then made the most of its first offensive possession, as the Bears drove down the field and into Hornet territory. The host team then reassumed the lead with a touchdown coming on a 25-yard passing play. The extra point was good to make it a 14-7 game.

Early in the second quarter, the Bears scored their third touchdown of the game on a short-yardage pass. Brennan scored again at the 3:46 mark of the second quarter, and the extra point made it a 28-7 game. East Central then put a quick drive together, using little more than a minute to go the length of the field, capped off with a 68-yard passing strike from quarterback Jeremy Jones to receiver Wanya Ward. Chavez added the extra point, and the score stood at 28-14 at the break.

The Bears struck first in the second half, as quarterback Da’Shawn Key kept the ball to run it in from 11 yards out. The point-after attempt was no good, but Brennan remained in control with a 34-14 advantage. The Bears weren’t able to answer the call immediately, and the ball quickly went back over to Brennan, but the Hornet defense helped the cause as Russell Brown intercepted a pass and returned it 85 yards for an East Central touchdown. The kick was good, and the score was 34-21, making it a two-possession game with 5:34 to play in the third.

Unfortunately for East Central, that was as close as the Hornets would get. Brennan added a sixth touchdown in the final minute of the third quarter, and one final score with 2:32 to play in the game. A 2-point conversion and extra-point kick made the final score 49-21 in favor of the Bears.

The potent Hornet offense was held in check by the Bears. East Central quarterback Jones was held to just four completions and 81 yards on the night, while the Hornet running game netted just 23 paces. Polk led the ground game with 17 yards on eight carries, while Roy Mora added 15 steps on eight touches. Jones ended the night with negative yardage. Ward caught two passes and the touchdown, while Roberto Esquivel caught a pass for 19 yards, and Dallas Polasek reeled in one grab for 1 yard.

The loss drops the Hornets to 2-1 on the year, with two games remaining before the district season begins. East Central will be at home this Friday, Sept. 20, as the Hornets host the 2-1 Judson Rockets. After beating Austin Lake Travis to open the season, Judson fell to state-ranked Steele on Sept. 6. The Rockets are coming off a win at Churchill last Friday.

Kickoff between East Central and Judson is set for 7:30 p.m. in Hornet Stadium.
