Cotulla 8
Stockdale 49

STOCKDALE -- With football playoffs set to begin this week, the Stockdale Brahmas may be peaking at just the right time.

Stockdale wrapped up its regular season at home last Friday as the Brahmas welcomed the Cotulla Cowboys. The Brahmas didn’t waste much time before running away with things though, as Stockdale eventually closed out the night and the regular season with a big 49-8 victory.

Darien Bird got things going for Stockdale midway through the first quarter as he scored from 10 yards out. Christian Segura then ran in the 2-point conversion, and the Brahmas were on top, 8-0. Less than five minutes later, Stockdale added to the board as Gage Haley capped off a Brahma drive with his 1-yard run over the goal line. The 2-point play was no good, but the lead was 14-0, and things were looking good at Bobby Russell Field.

In the opening seconds of the second quarter, senior running back Matt Valadez picked up 8 yards and a touchdown as he ran the score up to 20-0. Segura ran in the 2-point conversion, and the Stockdale lead was 22-0 with 11:53 still left to play in the half.

Bird scored his second touchdown of the night on a 20-yard run from scrimmage with five minutes to play in the half, and Joel Marquez came on for the extra point. As the teams took a break for halftime, it was Stockdale in complete control of the game with a 29-0 lead.

Cotulla scored its only touchdown of the game with five minutes to play in the third, but Stockdale came right back down the field, and Bird ran in his third touchdown of the night from the Cowboy 47-yard line with 4:39 to play in the third. The extra-point attempt failed, but the lead was 35-8.

Isaiah Garza got into the scoring action after that, as he pulled in a 15-yard touchdown pass from Bird. Marquez kicked the extra point, and the lead was 42-8 in the third.

The final touchdown of the game came early in the fourth quarter as Haley broke loose from 40 yards out. Marquez booted the extra point, and the home crowd roared at the 49-8 advantage. The Brahma defense held on from there, and Stockdale wrapped up the regular season with a big win at home.

Bird completed 8 of 12 passes on the night for 157 yards and a touchdown. He also led the ground game with 106 yards and three touchdowns on six carries. Garza was the Brahmas’ leading receiver with two grabs for 74 yards and the touchdown, and Jacob Cardenas caught three passes for 51 yards. Segura caught a pass for 15 paces, and Haley brought in two for 7 yards.

Haley ran four times for 49 yards and two touchdowns, Segura had 14 carries for 34 yards, Valadez ran twice for 14 yards and a touchdown, and Garza had one carry of 20 yards.

The Brahmas finish the regular season with an overall record of 6-4, while finishing 5-2 in district play. Stockdale will now advance to the playoffs, and will be back in action this weekend.

Stockdale will play Taft on Saturday, Nov. 16. The teams will meet on neutral ground in Three Rivers. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
