Nixon-Smiley 12
Karnes City 7

KARNES CITY -- The Nixon-Smiley Mustangs were hoping for a breakout season, and with a 12-7 victory in Karnes City last Friday, it appears the team is headed in the right direction.

There wasn’t much scoring in the game, and the teams look pretty similar on paper, but the Mustangs did what they had to, and left town with a big win.

The only score of the first half came midway through the first quarter of play as junior Jared Van Auken capped off a Mustang drive with a 3-yard plunge across the goal line. The point-after attempt from Nixon-Smiley was no good, but the lead was theirs, and the Mustang faithful celebrated a 6-0 advantage.

Midway through the third quarter, the Badgers evened the score with a 1-yard touchdown run from Jacob Janysek. Ronnie Kinney then booted the extra point, and the home team took a 7-6 lead. The score remained as such throughout the third quarter and into the fourth, but Nixon-Smiley changed the plan a little and scored its second touchdown of the game with a 16-yard passing strike from quarterback Nick Pena to Sam Moore. An attempt at 2 points came up short, but with 5:47 to play in the game, the Mustangs led the Badgers, 12-7.

Nixon-Smiley put its defense back on the field to hold the Badgers for half a quarter, and the team did just that. As time expired, it was the Mustangs with a huge road win, lifting the team to 3-1 on the year, and 1-0 in District 15-2A DII play.

The Mustang offense was held to just 202 total yards, but made it work by holding the Badger offense to just 148. Nixon-Smiley ran the ball 39 times on the night, with Van Auken getting the bulk of the carries en route to a 74-yard game. Kevin Martinez ran eight times for 24 yards, and Pena, Tristan Newman, and Tom Palacio each ran for 8 yards.

Pena completed 5 of 9 passes for 80 yards and a touchdown. Garrett Earlywine reeled in three catches for 53 steps, and Moore caught two for 27 yards and the score.

On the defensive side of things, Earlywine and Justin Ramos led the Mustangs with 10 tackles apiece. Ramos also had a fumble recovery and a sack on the night. Michael Scarbrough and Martinez each had four tackles in the game, while Moore added three tackles and an interception. Logan McMain had two tackles and a fumble recovery for Nixon-Smiley.

The 3-1 Mustangs will be back home this Friday, Oct. 4, as they host the 3-1 Dilley Wolves for Homecoming. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
