Floresville 17
Harlandale 28

SAN ANTONIO -- In a game that could decide the district championship, the Floresville Tigers fell to the Indians last Friday night at Harlandale.

The unbeaten Indians played host to Floresville, and the Tigers struck first early in the game. Harlandale received the opening kickoff, but the Tiger defense forced an Indian fumble, and Floresville covered it up. The Tigers then walked down the field and put the first points of the game onto the board with a 3-yard touchdown run from Gilbert Ortiz. Aaron Balles added the point-after kick, and Floresville led 7-0 with 7:30 to play in the first.

After trading possessions, the Indians got rolling late in the first quarter, and scored on an 11-yard passing play. The extra point was good, and things were tied up as the teams moved into the second quarter.

The Tigers put together another strong drive in response to the Indian touchdown, and Ortiz scored his second touchdown of the game with a 4-yard run from scrimmage. Balles booted the extra point, and Floresville was back on top, 14-7, with 9:40 to play in the half.

Harlandale’s spread offense can score quickly, and that is exactly what happened next, as the Indians used less than a minute to score their second touchdown of the game. A 13-yard touchdown run from quarterback Brandon Ramon brought Harlandale to within a point, and a good extra point tied things up at 14-all.

Floresville was able to put another good drive together before halftime, and the Tigers got deep into Indian territory. Floresville eventually lined up for a 25-yard field goal attempt, and Balles put it through the uprights to give the Tigers a 17-14 lead at the half.

Unfortunately for Floresville, the Tigers were unable to find the end zone during the second half. Harlandale went on to score a touchdown in the third on a 4-yard run across the goal line. The Indians scored again in the fourth quarter on a 7-yard passing play en route to a 28-17 final score.

Ortiz made a good effort for the Tigers, picking up 65 yards and two touchdowns on nine carries before leaving the game with an injury. Travis Morales ran seven times for 60 yards, and Kyle Bippert picked up 24 yards on five touches.

Quarterback Koby Wilkerson was under pressure much of the night, and completed just six passes for 26 yards. He was intercepted once. Wilkerson also had 10 official carries and picked up 44 yards on the night. Troy Hughey caught two passes for 18 yards, Aaron Laskowski caught a pass for 8 steps, and Mark Livesay caught a pass for 3 yards.

With the loss, the Tigers fall to 3-2 on the year, and are now 1-1 in District 29-4A competition. Floresville will be on the road again this Friday, as the Tigers travel to Mata Stadium to take on the Memorial Minutemen. Memorial is also 3-2 on the year and 1-1 in district play. The Minutemen opened the district with a 21-point win over Southside, but came up on the short end of a 36-35 decision last Thursday at Harlandale Memorial Stadium.

Floresville and Memorial will kick off this Friday at 7 p.m.
