East Central 3
New Braunfels 28

SAN ANTONIO -- After a great 2-0 start to their season, the East Central Hornets have been on a slide the past few weeks, and continued with a 28-3 loss to New Braunfels.

The Unicorns were 0-4 going into the game, but their losses had come to teams that included Boerne Champion, Madison, Seguin, and Johnson. New Braunfels was certainly not a pushover, as the final score showed.

The Unicorns struck first with a pair of touchdowns in the opening quarter of the contest. The first came on a 30-yard passing play from Parker Bateman to Austin Orgeron, and the second score come on a 2-yard run from Marcus O’Dell. The extra points were good, and New Braunfels led 14-0 with 1:29 to play in the first.

In the second quarter, the Hornets scored their only points of the night as Dennis Chavez booted a 40-yard field goal with 3:58 to play in the half. The Hornet defense kept the Unicorns at bay the rest of the half, and the score stood at 14-3 at the break.

New Braunfels tacked on another touchdown in the third as Dillon Smith ran in from a yard out, and Bateman scored on a 4-yard keeper in the fourth quarter to make it a 28-3 final score.

The potentially potent offense of East Central struggled against the Unicorn defense, completing just 5 of 23 passing attempts for 52 yards, and running for 99 yards on 33 carries. Senior quarterback Jeremy Jones completed 2 of 10 passes for 35 yards and an interception, while relief quarterback Joseph Gutierrez completed 3 of 13 passes for 17 paces. Wanya Ward caught three passes for 41 yards, Roy Mora caught a pass for 8 yards, and Javion Polk caught one for another 3 yards.

The gifted runners at East Central were also kept quiet throughout most of the night. Johnathan Jackson led the team in rushing with 86 yards on 12 carries, while Polk picked up 53 yards on 14 touches. Jones had 12 yards on six official runs.

The 2-3 Hornets will now enjoy a much-needed bye week, but will return to action next Friday, Oct. 11, as they host the Corpus Christi Carroll Tigers to open District 28-5A play. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
