Floresville 14
Medina Valley 7

CASTROVILLE -- In a battle of conflicting styles, the Tigers’ running game proved superior to the Panthers’ passing game, as Floresville blew in and out of town with a 14-7 win over Medina Valley last Friday evening.

After a scoreless first quarter, the Tigers broke the stalemate midway through the second quarter as sophomore running back Alex Mermea scored from a yard out. Aaron Balles came on for the extra point, and Floresville led 7-0 with 6:11 to play in the half.

The Panthers got rolling in the closing minutes of the half, though, and scored on a 31-yard passing play from quarterback David Olvera to Devin Ogden. The point-after kick was good, and the game was tied at 7-all when the teams headed for the locker rooms.

The second half looked a lot like the first, and neither team found a scoring opportunity in the third quarter. Midway through the fourth quarter, however, the Tigers scored on another short running play, as senior Kyle Bippert ran in from the 1-yard line. Balles booted the extra point, and the score stood at 14-7 with 6:46 to play in the contest.

The Panthers were unable to respond, and while the Tigers didn’t add on to their score, the 7-point lead was more than enough to seal the all-important district victory.

Sophomore quarterback Koby Wilkerson continues to improve as the season rolls on, and completed 8 of 12 passing attempts for 45 yards. Sophomore receiver Bradley Bunn caught five passes for 24 yards, and senior Vernon Marsh had one grab for 13 more. Mark Livesay caught a pass for 8 yards, and Zach Frantz had a catch, though it went for no gain.

On the ground, Mermea and senior Gilbert Ortiz handled most of the workload. Mermea ran 14 times for 55 yards and a touchdown, while Ortiz ran 13 times for 54 yards. Bippert had 10 carries for 28 yards and a touchdown, and Wilkerson ran six times for 11 yards. Livesay had a carry for 9 yards, and Travis Morales had one carry for 1 yard.

The win puts the Tigers at 6-2 on the season, and 4-1 in district play. Floresville is currently in a three-way tie for first with Harlandale and Uvalde. The Tigers lost to Harlandale, but defeated Uvalde for the Coyotes’ only district loss. Harlandale lost to Kennedy. The Tigers will be back at home this Friday to host the Kennedy Rockets. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. at Eschenburg Field.
