Cotulla 0
Nixon-Smiley 42

NIXON -- By the lopsided score of 42-0, the Nixon-Smiley Mustangs knocked off the Cotulla Cowboys last Friday night to remain in a three-way tie with Stockdale and Karnes City for third place in the district.

After a nearly scoreless first quarter, the Mustangs got rolling with 1:30 to play and scored on a 22-yard passing effort from quarterback Nick Pena to senior wideout Garrett Earlywine. A few minutes later, the duo connected again, this time from 65 yards out and 6 more points. Eduardo Tovar added the extra points, and the score stood at 14-0 with 11:03 to play in the second quarter.

After going back and forth throughout much of the second quarter, the Mustangs scored their third touchdown of the game the same way they did the first two -- with Pena hitting Earlywine. This time it was good from 5 yards out, and the Mustangs took a 21-0 lead into halftime.

On the opening drive of the second half, Nixon-Smiley picked up where it left off in the first half, as Kevin Martinez broke loose from 42 yards out and scored to give the Mustangs a 27-point lead. Tovar remained perfect kicking the ball, and it was soon a 28-0 game.

With 4:24 to play in the third, Pena went back up top, this time to Sam Moore, as he scored from 26 yards out. Tovar added the extra point, and the lead was 35-0.

The final touchdown of the game came with 1:27 remaining in the contest, as Jordan Martinez carried the ball over the goal line from a yard out. Tovar’s kick made it 42-0, to improve the Mustangs to 5-3 on the year, and 3-2 in district play.

Nixon-Smiley’s offense was firing on all cylinders, as Pena completed 6 of 8 passing attempts for 136 yards and four touchdowns. Earlywine caught five passes for 109 yards and three touchdowns, while Moore had the catch of 27 yards for a touchdown.

On the ground, Martinez led the Mustangs statistically with 109 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries. Justin Ramos ran six times for 69 yards, and Tristan Newman ran nine times for 25 more. Jared Van Auken had eight carries for 28 yards, Earlywine ran three times for 13 yards, Martinez had four carries for 21 yards, Michael Scarbrough ran twice for 10 yards, and Moore had two carries for 6 steps.

The Mustang defense played a great game, holding the Cowboys to 121 yards of total offense, including just 68 rushing yards on 35 carries. Cotulla completed 2 of 7 passes for 53 yards and was picked off twice. Earlywine came up with one interception for Nixon-Smiley, and Newman grabbed the other. Pena recovered a Cowboy fumble, as well.

Nixon-Smiley will travel to Natalia this Friday to face the winless (0-8, 0-5) Mustangs. Nixon-Smiley will then wrap up the regular season at home on Friday, Nov. 8, as it hosts the Poth Pirates. Kickoff for all district games is at 7:30 p.m.
