East Bernard 38
Stockdale 0

VICTORIA -- After finishing third in District 15-2A DII, the Stockdale Brahma football team advanced into the playoffs. The team picked up a big win in its bi-district matchup with Taft, but suffered a tough loss last Saturday afternoon at the hands of the state-ranked East Bernard Brahmas. The final score was 38-0.

East Bernard scored early in the first quarter on a 36-yard run, but the Stockdale defense held tough throughout the remainder of the quarter. As the teams moved into the second, the score remained 7-0.

In the second quarter, East Bernard scored its second touchdown of the night on a huge 76-yard run from scrimmage, and then added 7 points on a 39-yard passing play. As halftime rolled around, the score stood at 21-0 in favor of East Bernard.

Stockdale’s offense moved the ball well on several possessions in the first half, but was unable to close the deal and hang anything on the board. Senior running back Matt Valadez had another good game for Stockdale, and was at or near the century mark in the first half alone.

East Bernard went on to add another 10 points in the third quarter, booting a 27-yard field goal early in the quarter, and then scoring on an 80-yard run with eight seconds left on the clock. The unbeaten team then scored one minute later on a 30-yard run, and locked up the game by the final score of 38-0.

Stockdale ran the ball 63 times throughout the night for 281 yards. Valadez handled most of the workload, running 44 times for 209 yards. Quarterback Darien Bird ran nine times for 44 yards, and Gage Haley had eight rushes for 28 paces. Bird completed 3 of 7 passing attempts for 34 yards. He connected with Jacob Cardenas one time for 16 yards, hit Valadez once for 9 yards, and threw his third completion to Haley for 9 more.

One big issue for Stockdale was hanging on to the ball. The team coughed up a total of four fumbles on the night, losing three of them to East Bernard, and at what appeared to be the most inopportune times. Stockdale punted only once during the game.

Stockdale ends its season with an overall record of 7-5. The Brahmas were third in the district behind Poth and Dilley, and have a big win over Taft to their credit. Stockdale will lose Valadez, Haley, and a number of other big-time players to graduation, but has a wealth of youth coming back in 2014. The team ended its playoff run a bit earlier than it had hoped, but had a solid season nonetheless.
