East Central 50

South San 0

SAN ANTONIO -- After a disappointing home loss to Steele one week prior, the East Central Hornet football team got back on track last Friday evening with a huge 50-0 win at South San.

While the Hornet offense accounted for six touchdowns during the game, the Hornet defense accounted for a touchdown and safety, while all but eliminating the South San offense from the equation. East Central held the Bobcats to just 59 total yards, all coming on the ground by way of 27 rushing attempts. The Hornets forced two fumbles, returning one for a touchdown, and intercepted one pass, as well.

Offensively, things got rolling early in the first quarter for East Central as senior quarterback Jeremy Jones connected with Treyvon Hinson for 46 yards and a touchdown. A few minutes later, Johnathan Jackson capped off a scoring drive with a 2-yard run from scrimmage. Roberto Esquivel added the extra points, and the score was 14-0 with 6:09 left to play in the first.

The defense scored its first points of the night with 4:32 to play in the quarter with a big safety. The score was 16-0 and the Hornets got the ball right back with good field position. East Central marched down, and the Hornets scored their third touchdown of the game on a 2-yard passing play from Jones to Kyle Lamey. The Esquivel kick made the score 23-0 with 2:11 left to play in the first quarter.

The Hornets scored one touchdown in the second quarter, as Jones ran it in himself from 14 yards out. The point-after kick was good, and the halftime score stood at 30-0.

East Central added to its lead in the third quarter with a 9-yard run from Jackson. Dalton Zigmond then scored on a 6-yard run late in the third, and the Hornets led 44-0 heading into the final quarter.

After a nearly scoreless fourth quarter, the Hornet defense produced 6 more points as Lavon Price recovered a Bobcat fumble and raced 28 yards for a touchdown. The game clock expired 31 seconds later, and Hornet Nation celebrated a 50-0 victory.

Jones completed 8 of 12 passing attempts for 116 yards and two touchdowns, but was intercepted once. Hinson caught two passes for 54 yards and a touchdown, while Jackson added 48 yards more on three grabs. Zigmond pulled down two passes for 27 yards, Justin Upshaw-Mendoza caught two passes for 12 yards, and Lamey had the one grab for 2 yards and a touchdown.

Jackson had another big night running the ball for East Central, as he tallied 145 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries. Jones ran 12 times for 116 yards, and Zigmond carried the ball 12 times for 62 paces. Upshaw-Mendoza ran once for 10 yards.

The win puts the Hornets at 4-5 on the year and 2-2 in district play. The Hornets will wrap up their season this Friday, Nov. 8, as they host the Corpus Christi King Mustangs. King has an overall record of 2-6, and is 1-3 in district play.

Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. in Hornet Stadium.
