Floresville 41

Memorial 0

SAN ANTONIO -- After a tough loss at Harlandale the week prior, Floresville needed a good win to help keep the program on track. Coach Jeff Luna and his pack took another trip to San Antonio last Friday to face the Memorial Minutemen, and returned home with a big win, 41-0.

The Tigers dominated throughout the night, racking up an impressive 589 yards of offense. Floresville averaged just over 10 yards per carry to gain 473 paces on 47 carries, and added another 116 yards through the air. Meanwhile, the Tiger defense held the Minutemen to just 138 yards, allowing the team to split things evenly with 69 yards on the ground, and another 69 through the air. Floresville’s stingy defense also came up with an interception and two fumble recoveries.

The first score of the game came at the 4:45 mark of the first quarter as sophomore quarterback Koby Wilkerson completed a 6-yard pass to fellow sophomore Preston Taggs. Aaron Balles booted the extra point, and the score stood at 7-0.

The second touchdown of the game came on the first play of the second quarter, as senior Kyle Bippert punched it in from 5 yards out. Balles kicked the point-after, and the score was 14-0. Bippert then made it a three-possession game as he scored his second touchdown of the night on a 2-yard run with 6:39 left to play in the half. Balles remained perfect kicking the ball, and the Tigers enjoyed a 21-point lead at the break.

Early in the third quarter, sophomore Alex Mermea got in on the scoring action as he found running room from 32 yards out and moved the ball over the goal line. Balles kicked the extra point for a 28-0 lead. Three minutes later, Mermea did it again, this time scoring on a 65-yard run. The extra-point attempt was no good, but the lead was 34-0 with 6:20 left to play in the third quarter.

The Tigers’ final touchdown of the night came midway through the fourth quarter as junior Dillon Gaither ran in from 10 yards out. Ray Contreras came on for the point-after kick, and the scoreboard read 41-0 with 6:10 to play in the game. The Tiger defense held on from there, and Floresville improved to 2-1 in district play.

Statistically speaking, Mermea led the Tiger offense with 150 yards and two touchdowns on seven touches. Wilkerson had 116 yards on nine carries, and Gaither had 50 yards and a touchdown on four carries. Bippert ran six times for 43 yards and two touchdowns. Travis Morales had six carries for another 20 yards, and Mark Livesay ran twice for 25. Mason Ray added 23 yards on three carries, and Marcus Avila was good for 25 paces on four rushes.

Wilkerson completed 5 of 11 passing attempts for 103 yards and a touchdown, but was picked off twice. Ray completed 1 of 2 passes for 13 yards. Ray was the Tigers’ leading receiver with a grab for 50 yards, and Vernon Marsh reeled in two catches for 49. Aaron Laskowski caught a pass for 13 yards, and Taggs had the 6-yard touchdown reception.

The Tigers improve to 4-2 on the season and 2-1 in district play. Floresville will be back at home this Friday, Oct. 18, as the Uvalde Coyotes (4-2, 3-0) roll into town. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. at Eschenburg Field.
