Stockdale 38

Karnes City 24

KARNES CITY -- Senior running back Matt Valadez scored five touchdowns last Friday night to lead the Stockdale Brahmas to a 38-24 win over the Badgers in Karnes City. The victory puts Stockdale into a tie with Nixon-Smiley for third place in the district, and assures Stockdale a spot in the playoffs.

The first points of the night came midway through the first quarter as Valadez scored his first touchdown on a 25-yard run from scrimmage. Valadez then ran in the 2-point conversion, and Stockdale held an early 8-0 lead.

Minutes later, however, the Badgers responded with a score of their own, as Paul Kinney ran in from 37 yards out. The point-after attempt was no good, and the Brahmas maintained a 2-point advantage.

Still in the first quarter, Valadez added to the scoreboard with 6 more points, this time running in from 10 yards out. He ran in another 2-point conversion, and the lead was 16-6 with 2:24 to play in the first. A quick stop by the defense gave the ball to Stockdale’s offense once more, and Valadez made it count. With less than a minute to play in the first, Valadez scored on a 55-yard race to the end zone. He was three for three running in 2-point conversions, and the score was 24-6 heading into the second quarter.

The second quarter belonged to Karnes City, though, as the Badgers held the Brahmas out of the end zone, and scored twice with a 17-yard passing play from Dylan Wright to Jacob Janysek, and then again with a Ronnie Kinney field goal from 24 yards out. At the break, the score was 24-16 in favor of the visiting Brahmas.

Valadez scored his fourth touchdown of the night at the 7:27 mark of the third quarter, this time on an 8-yard run. Darien Bird ran in the 2-point conversion, and the score was 32-16 for Stockdale.

Karnes City scored one final time on a 56-yard run by Paul Kinney. Janysek and Wright connected for the 2-point play, but still trailed Stockdale 32-24 with 1:52 to play in the third.

Stockdale’s final score of the game came with 8:30 to play in the game as Valadez finished off a Brahma drive with a 1-yard run over the goal line. The 2-point conversion was no good, but the 38-24 lead was more than enough.

Valadez had another outstanding game, carrying the ball 41 times for 305 total yards and five touchdowns. Bird ran four times for 43 yards, Gage Haley ran three times for 19 yards, and Isaiah Garza had one carry for 17 yards. Bird completed one of three passes that was good to Haley for 17 steps.

The win leaves Stockdale at 5-4 on the year and 4-2 in district play. The Brahmas are currently in a tie with Nixon-Smiley, with just one game remaining in the regular season.

Stockdale will close things out at home against the Cotulla Cowboys, who are currently 2-4 in district play. Nixon-Smiley will also be at home, but will have to host the district-leading Poth Pirates. Kickoff for all games is at 7:30 p.m.
