Nixon-Smiley 35
Bloomington 8

BLOOMINGTON -- With three touchdowns in the second quarter, and two more in the third, the Nixon-Smiley Mustangs had no trouble taking care of the Bloomington Bobcats last Friday night. The Mustangs are now 2-2 in district play, and have a shot at postseason play.

After a scoreless first quarter of play, Nixon-Smiley broke the stalemate as Jared Van Auken capped off a Mustang scoring drive with an 8-yard run from scrimmage. Eduardo Tovar added the extra point, and the score was 7-0 with 7:27 to play in the half.

With 4:04 to play in the half, Van Auken scored his second touchdown of the night, this time on a thrilling 40-yard sprint from scrimmage. The point-after attempt failed, but the Mustangs were in clear control at 13-0.

Great defense gave the ball back to Nixon-Smiley with good field position, and Kevin Martinez did the honors for the Mustangs as he ran in from 12 yards out. Tristan Newman ran in on the 2-point conversion, and the Mustangs took a 21-0 lead into the locker room.

In the second half, Nixon-Smiley picked up right where it had left off in the first, and Van Auken scored his third touchdown of the night on a 4-yard plunge over the goal line. Another failed point-after attempt left the score at 27-0 with 10:17 to play in the third.

The Mustangs’ final touchdown of the night came at the 4:18 mark of the third quarter as quarterback Nick Pena connected with Garrett Earlywine for 18 yards and a touchdown. Pena then hit Sam Moore for the 2-point conversion, and the lead was 35-0.

Bloomington finally got on the board early in the fourth quarter with a 17-yard touchdown run. A 2-point conversion made the score 35-8, but it was nowhere near what the Bobcats needed to claw their way back into the game.

The Mustangs easily held on for the win and improved to 4-3 on the season, and 2-2 in District 15-2A DII play. Nixon-Smiley tallied 365 total yards of offense on the night and picked up a total of 15 first downs. Most of the work was done on the ground as the Mustangs ran 43 times for 318 steps. Pena did complete 2 of 4 passes for 47 yards and a touchdown.

Martinez handled most of the running duties, as he carried the ball 15 times for 97 yards and a touchdown. Van Auken was close behind with 92 yards on 12 carries, but put the ball in the end zone three times. Newman had seven carries for 85 yards.

Defensively, Michael Scarbrough led the way with eight tackles, followed by Jordan Martinez, Oscar Torres, and Kevin Martinez with six tackles apiece. Justin Ramos and Earlywine each had five. Jordan Martinez, Kevin Martinez, and Coleton Trammell each recovered a fumble for Nixon-Smiley, and Moore had an interception for the Mustangs.

Nixon-Smiley will be back at home this Friday as the Mustangs host Cotulla. The Cowboys are 1-6 on the year and 1-3 in district play. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. in Nixon.
