Highlands (2-1, 1-0) exploded out of its bye week with a decisive District 28-5A win over Edison (2-2, 1-1) Sept. 18 at the SAISD Sports Complex.

The Owls snapped a10-game district losing streak with help from several big plays in a 42-16 win over the Golden Bears.

“It was a big help, just to be able to get our confidence back,” first-year Highlands coach Juan Morales said, referring to a 42-20 loss Sept. 4 to Uvalde. “We wanted to make sure we improved, and that sure happened. It helped our defense more than anything.

“We got in the classroom and made some adjustments. Now we’re able to assess where we’re at.”

Each Owls touchdown covered 22 yards or more.

“We were able to establish the run right off the bat,” Morales said. “I think doing that helped everything. I was really proud of the way we played football today.”

Joseph Delgado drilled a 27-yard field goal that put Edison in the lead.

However, junior quarterback Dylan Camacho staked Highlands to a 14-3 advantageearly in the second quarter with a 45-yard scoring pass to Bruce Moody (75 yards, 4 receptions) and a 22-yarder to Richard Saldana (63 yards, 2 receptions). Both senior receivers scored two touchdowns.

“Our quarterback played well,” Morales said. “He’s learning quickly.”

Saldana’s touchdown was the first of three in the second quarter as Highlands established a 29-3 halftime lead. Chris Hernandez scored on a 34-yard punt return. With 1:17 left in the half, Camacho (8 of 9, 138 yards) tossed a lateral to Saldana, and Moody completed the hook-and-ladder play with a 31-yard run.

The St. Gerard transfer executed the lateral to his senior teammate so smoothly, it almost looked like a handoff.

“We didn’t really work on it a lot,” Saldana said. “We worked on it the first week and the coaches said we’d do it in a game someday. It just worked.”

Mark Ugarte, on a 62-yard interception return, and Matthew Garcia, with a 28-yard run, accounted for Edison’s touchdowns.

“We wanted make sure we stuck to our responsibilities,” Morales said. “We wanted to get into their backfield. Garcia’s a great runner. We wanted to make sure he had to work hard for his yards.”

Saldana said he was glad that the work Highlands put in after the Uvalde game was reflected on the field.

“The weaknesses we had in our first two games, we worked on them the whole bye week,” he said. “We knew we could do better as a team. We knew we could execute as a team.”

Jefferson 35, Lanier 20

The Mustangs (1-3, 1-0) picked up its first victory of the season in a District 28-5A game against Lanier (0-4, 0-2) Sept. 18 at Alamo Stadium.

Jefferson senior back Jesse Flores (279 yards, 25 carries) erupted for touchdown runs of 84, 13, two and 49 yards. Davion Clark added a five-yard scoring run.

For the Voks, a two-yard run from senior Frank McCumber cut Jefferson’s lead to 14-7. Freshman Christian Cervantes broke a 55-yard touchdown run with 6:10 remaining in the third quarter to close the gap to 21-14. Julian Castillo caught a seven-yard touchdown pass from Jeremiah Esquivel (8 of 18, 113 yards) to complete the scoring with 1:18.

Castillo ran 15 times for 86 yards. Damien Tovar caught two passes for 64 yards. Eric Flores added 44 rushing yards for Jefferson on eight attempts.

Devine 15, Central Catholic 6

Devine (3-1) capped a long scoring drive with a rushing touchdown from quarterback Dillon Ricord (86 yards, 17 carries). Ricord had given the Warhorses the lead over Central Catholic (2-2) in the second quarter in Devine.

Buttons back Caleb Salinas (64 yards, 12 times) scored in the third quarter, cutting Central Catholic’s deficit to 8-6.

Central Catholic quarterback James Morton ran eight times for 59 yards and completed eight of 16 passes for 66 yards. Austin Vargas caught four passes for 40 yards.

The victory was the 100th for Warhorses coach Chad Quisenberry.

VOLLEYBALL: Mitchan lifts Highlands to sweep of Jefferson

AREA TEAMS INCLUDED: Highlands, Jefferson.

PLEASE FOLLOW THIS LINK TO THE SOUTHSIDE REPORTER WEBSITE:

http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/local/communities/southside/article/Mitchan-lifts-Highlands-to-sweep-of-Jefferson-6540311.php

Jefferson was scrapping for every point and threatening to extend the District 28-5A match when Highlands senior Bryten Mitchan made her presence felt.

Mitchan (10 kills) registered kills on three of four points, putting third-place Highlands (16-8, 6-2) at match point against Jefferson (6-13, 2-6). The Owls were able to polish off a 25-22, 25-13, 25-21 win Sept. 22 at the Alamo Convocation Center over the rapidly improving Mustangs.

“We pick up each other, and they need me to pick us up,” the outside hitter said. “Jazlyn (Lozoya) realized I was on fire, so she was setting me a lot. She’s a good setter and she knows who to set at what time.”

Highlands shared third with Harlandale (18-8, 6-2) after ending the week with a 25-11, 25-10, 25-18 decistion over Brackenridge (7-24, 1-7) Sept. 25 at the ACC. Harlandale also won two matches, including a 25-18, 13-25, 25-22, 18-25, 15-10 upset of co-district leader McCollum (18-9, 7-1).

“I’m kind of disappointed with where we stand,” Mitchan said. “But we’ll fight through it and get all the rest of the wins.”

The Mustangs nearly pulled off a stunner Sept. 25 against the other co-leader
Edison (16-17, 7-1). After illnesses forced Jefferson to make lineup adjustments against Highlands, the additional match helped it settle into the new roles. The Golden Bears escaped with a 26-28, 25-20, 20-25, 25-22, 15-5 win at the ACC.

“They played much better,” Jefferson coach Kristi O’Leary said. “I think playing your rival always brings out the best in everybody. In that first set, we were playing really well.”

Jefferson led Highlands 20-16 on an ace from Marisol Montejano (7 blocks) in Game 3 after senior Angela Hardcastle (7 kills) rallied the Mustangs.

“We had some girls who were playing ill and some who were just out,” O’Leary said. “Angela’s a great leader. She’s a smart player and she’s so strong.”

Mitchan’s first kill in the final run tied it 20-20. A block from Jenelle Rodriguez put the Owls in the lead and Mitchan delivered back-to-back kills ahead of another Rodriguez block.

“It’s from being a senior and a leader,” Highlands coach Desiree Lara said of Mitchan. “When Jazlyn gets that pass, she needs to set whoever’s on fire. I’ve watched her grow up as a setter.”

WEEKLY FOOTBALL ROUNDUP: Three traditional powers pick up first win

AREA TEAMS INCLUDED: Brackenridge, East Central, Lanier, Southwest, . Central Catholic, McCollum, Holy Cross, Sam Houston????

PLEASE FOLLOW THIS LINK TO THE SOUTHSIDE REPORTER WEBSITE:

http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/local/communities/southside/article/Three-traditional-football-powers-pick-up-initial-6540295.php

 

The wait went on much longer than either Brackenridge, East Central and Southwest are accustomed to, but it ended simultaneously for the area football powerhouses.

Each of the three schools, who have a combined 23 consecutive playoff appearances, picked up their first win of the 2015 season on Sept. 25.

East Central (1-4), which has qualified for the postseason each of the past six years, and Southwest (1-4) have stopped their skids in time for the District 28-6A season. Brackenridge (1-4, 1-2) also kept its playoff hopes alive in District 28-5A.

“Any team in our district can beat any of the others on any given night,” East Central coach Clint Hartman said, “but we plan on winning district. If we fall short, we coaches have done something wrong.”

The Hornets edged Del Rio (3-2) 31-27 at East Central Stadium.

Senior Cody Nuckols (47 yards, 9 carries) scored the winning touchdown with about 4 ½ minutes remaining. East Central then made a defensive stop, but lost a fumble to the Rams. Del Rio scored to pull within four points, but the Hornets’ Dalton Tarr blocked the extra point.

The Rams then attempted an onside kick, but East Central sophomore Kahjah Matthews leapt to recover the onside kick in the air and end the threat.

“We did everything we needed to do to win at the end,” Hartman said. “This has been a two-year process to get where we’re at and the camaraderie on this team is our reward.”

Nuckols was one of six Hornets who returned from injuries to make contributions. The group included standout back Jauwan Hall (108 yards, 11 carries), who ran 61 yards for a third-quarter touchdown.

“Two things happened,” Hartman said. “Jauwan ran for 108 yards Friday and he felt fine Saturday. So he’s going to get a lot more than 11 carries next game. Jauwan made a huge difference, but so did all the guys we got back.”

Also back in action for East Central were two key offensive linemen, Juan Trevino and Isidro Diaz (a four-year starter), defensive end Braden Sekula and receiver Kyle Lamey.

Del Rio led 14-10 at halftime, despite the first of two touchdown passes from Justin Upshaw-Mendoza (13 of 22, 162 yards) to Matthews (88 yards, 5 receptions). The sophomore scored on a 71-yard pass play with about three minutes remaining in the first quarter.

Matthews also scored on a 12-yard pass with about five minutes to play in the third quarter, just before Hall’s touchdown.

“Kahjah is extremely special and he’s an extremely hard worker,” Hartman said. “In my opinion, he’s a sure thing. I think he’s scored a touchdown in every game.”

Donald Holden had 48 yards on five receptions for East Central.

Brackenridge 31, Lanier 14

The Eagles won a district game against Lanier (0-5, 0-3) at Alamo Stadium beyond 377 passing yards and five touchdowns from senior quarterback Antonio Lopez.

The Voks took a 6-0 lead on a three-yard run from senior Frank McCumber with 10:46 until halftime. Brackenridge tied it on a 63-yard pass from Lopez (25 of 41) to 6-foot-6 senior Jalen Davis (141 yards, 7 receptions). It was the first three touchdown catches for Davis.

Lanier regained the lead less than two minutes into the second half on an 88-yard pass play from Jeremiah Esquivel (7 of 18, 171 yards) to Julian Castillo (107 yards, 2 receptions). McCumber ran for the two-point conversion and it was 14-6.

Brackenridge took the lead for good with consecutive touchdowns later in the third quarter. Lopez connected for 29 yards to Justin Eaton (52 yards, 3 catches) and 18 yards to Davis. Eagles senior Jonathan King finished with 97 reception yards on five catches.

Eaton and Davis each added fourth-quarter scores.

Lanier’s Adrian Lopez caught three passes for 43 yards.

Southwest 28, Eagle Pass 21 (OT)

The Dragons’ Tyrone Middleton recorded three touchdowns, including the game-winner on a 23-yard run in overtime, to lead the host team to a non-district win at Southwest Stadium.

The North Texas recruit finished with 128 rushing yards on 23 attempts and caught a 64-yard touchdown pass from senior quarterback Robert Trevino. In overtime, Middleton had to fend off an Eagle Pass defender at the four-yard line to reach the end zone after taking a sweep around the left side.

Eagle Pass (2-3) tied it 21-21 in the fourth quarter after Southwest had broken a halftime deadlock with a third-quarter touchdown.

Southwest junior Marquis Jones ran nine times for 62 yards and a touchdown.

FOOTBALL: Winn fires out of delay to claim upset victory over Southside

AREA TEAMS INCLUDED: Southside.

PLEASE FOLLOW THIS LINK TO THE SOUTHSIDE REPORTER WEBSITE:

http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/local/communities/southside/article/Winn-claims-upset-victory-over-Southside-6540310.php

 

 

A year ago, Southside established itself as one of the District 29-5A elite. On Sept. 25, the Cardinals dealt with the consequences of being hunted.

In his post-game speech to his team, a jubilant Eagle Pass Winn coach Eric Villasenor described his Mavericks as 13-point underdogs and identified Southside (2-2, 0-1) as the district favorite. Villasenor expressed his pride in what he termed a total team victory.

The Mavericks (2-2, 1-0) trailed by eight points when nearby lightning delayed the game by about 45 minutes. Energized by the re-start, Winn scored the first of 21 unanswered points five plays later and held off a Cardinals rally for a 27-16 win at Southside Stadium

“We’ve been working hard the last two weeks of practice,” said Winn quarterback Reyes Lopez, who ran for a touchdown and passed for another. “Day in and day out. We passed a little more than we had been and we played better defense. It really helped us that we were able to run the ball.”

Winn struggled with its running game before lightning was spotted north of the stadium with 6:42 remaining in the first half. Afterward it was able to move the chains consistently behind Edward Martinez, who scored on a five-yard run to cap a 73-yard drive that was underway before the delay, and Lopez.

“We got our energy back when we came back out of it,” Lopez said.

After the Winn defense made a second-consecutive fourth down stop deep in its own territory, the Mavericks adopted an uptempo bearing. This time they traveled 66 yards in seven plays to score on a 21-yard pass from Lopez to Julio Ruiz just 10 seconds before halftime.

“They threw the ball more than we thought they would,” Southside coach Ricky Lock conceded. “They don’t do anything outstanding, but they made the plays, and we didn’t.”

Winn led 14-8 at the half, weathering a 75-yard return of the ensuing kickoff from Erik Luna. Time ran out as Luna zoomed past the 50. He was caught at the Mavs 20.

“They came out with the momentum,” Lock said. “They picked it up, and we had some things happen. We’re a young football team – we only start two seniors on both sides of the ball. That showed up tonight. It hadn’t before.”

Southside lost two consecutive fumbles at the start of the second half, enabling the Mavericks to increase their lead.

Danny Rios scored on a 32-yard fumble return 64 seconds into the third quarter. The Cardinals prevented further damage by recovering a fumble on their own 1, 12 plays after Winn recovered the resulting onside kick.

“We had too many penalties,” Lock said. “It’s frustrating to have that many 15-yard penalties. We pride ourselves on being a disciplined bunch.”

Cardinals junior Matt Collier (147 yards, 23 carries) scored on a five-yard run off a direct snap with 9:25 remaining. Nathan Rosokoff ran for the two-point conversion, putting Southside within 21-16.

Winn answered with a 70-yard, seven-play drive. Lopez ran nine yards on a broken play for a touchdown with 6:15 remaining.

An interception by the Mavericks’ Rene Auces ended Southside’s next possession near midfield. It was only the second incomplete pass of the evening for a Cardinals team that only needed four plays to cover 88 yards on its first possession.

Senior Jonny Trevino threw 35 yards to Luna (80 yards, 7 receptions) for the touchdown and found Travis Quillin for the two-point conversion.

Lock disagreed with Villasenor on the identity of the district favorite, choosing Uvalde – which also was upset in its opener.

“Our district is so even,” Lock said. “You have to come out ready at the start of every game. We were definitely flat tonight, for some reason.”

FOOTBALL: Knights’ explosiveness overwhelms Hondo

AREA TEAMS INCLUDED: Holy Cross.

http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/local/communities/southside/article/Holy-Cross-buries-Hondo-with-offensive-tidal-wave-6533799.php

 

The rout felt like it was underway from the opening kickoff Sept. 17 at Harlandale Memorial Stadium.

By halftime, Holy Cross (3-1) had six touchdowns in their non-district game against Hondo (0-4). The Knights were well on their way to a 55-7 victory.

“We’re an incredibly aggressive team,” Holy Cross coach Mike Harrison said. “By the time we scored that second touchdown, we were extremely confident. That gave us a push.”

Junior cornerback Darren Graham returned the opening kickoff 46 yards off a reverse. Unfortunately, Graham was the victim of a late hit at the end of his run and his season ended with a broken leg.

After absorbing a sack on the Knights’ first play, junior quaterback Vince Compian (10 of 15, 284 yards) threw a 30-yard touchdown pass to Robert Adame.

“Myself, the backs and the receivers would not be successful without the five guys up front and Jay Nava,” Compian said. “The score wouldn’t have been like that without them, or the defense.”

Adame scored again before the first quarter ended, on a 22-yard run. Between those touchdowns, Holy Cross earned first downs on both plays in its second possession. Compian passed 18 yards to Ernest Perez Jr. to set up a 41-yard run from junior Josh Martinez (145 yards, 15 carries).

“Josh and Robert run extremely hard,” Harrison said. “That’s kind of surprising for their size. They’re explosive and our offensive line was really good at times.”

Martinez scored three more touchdowns, two in the second quarter as the Knights scored 21 more points. He turned a burst up the middle into a 96-yard touchdown with 7:03 until halftime. The junior appeared to be stopped for a very short gain, but his extra effort enabled him to escape possible tacklers and find running room down the right sideline.

Holy Cross had one more big play to unveil before the half ended. Adame (121 yards, 3 receptions) scored on a 62-yard pass play. With just two seconds until the half, Martinez scored his third touchdown on a two-yard run.

“As the game was going on, he was one of our better options,” Compian said. “If I gave him the ball, I knew he was going to make plays.”

The Knights’ halftime stats were staggering. They averaged 18.1 yards per carry and 30.2 yards per completion in the first half. Martinez had 153 rushing yards and three touchdowns on just five carries, while Holy Cross had rushing yards as a team. Compian had completed five of seven throws for 151 yards.

Perez (73 yards, 3 catches) caught a tipped pass for a 25-yard score with 6:45 remaining in the third quarter. Holy Cross led 48-0.

Compian transferred from Kennedy to Holy Cross this season. His grandfather convinced him that the move would be beneficial. Interestingly, Compian played basketball at Kennedy but not football.

“(Knights assistant coach Angel) Cedillo, me and him are really close,” Compian said. “And I’m close to my grandpa. He told me I’d get a better education at Holy Cross. My grandpa went to Holy Cross and he really wanted me to go.”

Martinez, who also had 56 yards on two receptions, ran six yards for a fourth-quarter touchdown. Hondo scored the final touchdown on a 45-yard run from Jordan Gomez with 4:17 left.

“We played without three starters tonight,” Harrison said. “It was good to see some of our younger kids step up. I’m hopeful this group will continue to grow as a team. They can be special.”

Graham will be a big loss for the Knights. The junior, son of Holy Cross assistant coach Garyl Graham, was the team’s best defender in coverage. Graham finished fourth in the state meet in the hurdles last year and has been a successful power lifter.

“I’ve known that kid since he was a baby,” Harrison said. “I know what he’s done to get himself to be in the position where he’s at. It was just hard to deal with.”

VOLLEYBALL: Hornets split 28-6A tune-up matches

AREA TEAMS INCLUDED: East Central.

PLEASE FOLLOW THIS LINK TO THE SOUTHSIDE REPORTER WEBSITE:

http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/local/communities/southside/article/East-Central-splits-28-6A-tune-up-matches-6533802.php

The schedule was favorable as a final test to prepare for East Central for the onset of district play.

The Hornets (15-16) played two of the area’s best Catholic school programs Sept. 15 and Sept. 18 to prepare for the District 28-6A season, which begins Sept. 25 at Corpus Christi Carroll. East Central split the matches, winning Sept. 15 at Incarnate Word (15-16) 14-25, 25-21, 25-16, 30-28 and falling 25-21, 25-20, 25-18 Sept. 18 to Antonian (22-14).

“We just have to work on our consistency,” first-year East Central coach Jordan Pinson said. “I feel pretty good about district. If we play our game and do the things we need to, we’ll be just fine.”

Although the Hornets figure to be a 28-6A title contender, along with Corpus Christi Ray, the district’s balance indicates that they needed to prepare for the grind ahead.

“We want to play teams that are at the top level,” Pinson said. “We were able to beat Incarnate Word. We want to play teams where we have to be at our best, so we can be ready for district.”

East Central entered the match against the highly regarded Apaches on a roll, having won eight of its previous 11 matches, but had a bit of a setback at Antonian.

“We kind of had an off night,” Pinson said. “We just weren’t taking advantage of opportunities on offense.”

At Incarnate Word, the Hornets improved from game to game as senior setter Kaylin Mills dished 30 assists. Sophomore Skeler Embry led the offense with 12 kills.

“I think our confidence was much higher in the second and third games,” said Mills, who had a pair of important kills in Game 2. “We were talking together and playing together. It took us a while to get warmed up, but once we did it was great.”

The host Shamrocks took a 28-27 lead in Game 4 on an ace from Sofia Resendiz and threatened to extend the match. But the Hornets’ defense helped force two consecutive Incarnate Word errors and Lubianski (11 kills, 3 blocks) finished the match with a kill.

Casey Cosper produced 19 digs for the Hornets. Sara Haycraft had a pair of well-timed blocks, one of which gave East Central a 26-25 lead in Game 4.

“We all like each other and get along off the court,” Mills said. “For me (as a setter), whatever’s working, I keep doing it. If someone’s off, I move it around. I try to kill it every once in a while. I like doing it.”

Embry has a team-best 208 kills. She and Sara Haycraft have 33.5 blocks apiece. Lubianski, at 6-foot-3, has 153 kills and leads East Central in blocks with 70.

Mills has served a team-high 34 aces to go with 414 assists and 59 kills. Cosper has recorded 177 disgs, 131 kills and 7.5 blocks. Kirsten Bradley leads the team in digs with 236t.

“It has been an adjustment, with the kids getting to know me and each other,” Pinson said. “Once they’ve gotten used to me, they’re finally starting to come together.”

Pinson coached at Luling last year. He said East Central’s entire athletic program was a draw for him.

“I really like the way East Central does things,” Pinson said. “They have high expectations, but they know they can be met.”

FOOTBALL: McCollum can’t catch up to Hurricanes’ torrid pace

AREA TEAMS INCLUDED: McCollum, Sam Houston.

PLEASE RETURN TO THIS STORY FOR A LINK TO THE SOUTHSIDE REPORTER WEBSITE:

http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/local/communities/southside/article/McCollum-can-t-catch-up-to-Hurricanes-torrid-6533800.php

 

Sam Houston’s rapid-fire offense made it difficult for McCollum to keep pace Sept. 18 at Alamo Stadium, and that was part of the plan.

The Hurricanes, who improved to 4-0 for the first time since 2011, barely gave the Cowboys time to catch their breath by scoring 31 points on 12 offensive plays in the second quarter and 14 more on three snaps in the third. The end result was a 64-28 win that left Sam Houston (4-0, 2-0) tied for first in District 28-5A with Harlandale (2-2, 2-0).

“We want to push the ball offensively and score points quickly,” Sam Houston coach Patrick Brown said. “That’s going to provide them with bad field position which, in turn, will force them to do things they’re not comfortable doing – and that’s throwing the ball downfield.”

McCollum (1-3, 1-1) finished the first quarter trailing just 14-7. Senior back Mike Ramirez broke an unusual 32-yard touchdown run with 1:17 remaining in the quarter. Ramirez was in the grap of a Sam Houston defender and headed toward the ground when he managed to spin off the player’s back and continue to the end zone.

It was the Cowboys standout’s only run of more than 10 yards against an inspired Hurricanes defense, led by senior nose tackle Chance Russell. Ramirez finished with 95 yards on 17 attempts. McCollum quarterback Jordan Ortega, who ran for two touchdowns, had a team-best 113 rushing yards on 22 tries.

“He’s a great player and their quarterback is a great player,” Brown said, “but our (defensive) front four is pretty special. I don’t know if there’s a defensive line in San Antonio like them. Chance Russell is unbelievable.”

So, too, was Sam Houston’s 1-2 offensive punch of Raymonte Prime and Devin Harris. They helped the Hurricanes amass 528 total yards.

Harris turned in perhaps the best performance of his career, starting with 59 yards on three carries that culminated with a 33-yard scoring run on the Hurricanes’ first possession. Prime (13 of 15, 266 yards) passed 31 yards to Jawon Anderson (54 yards, 3 catches) and 36 yards to Dewayne Brown on their second series, before capping the 90-yard drive with a two-yard dash.

“Raymonte is a great quarterback,” said Harris, who finished with 157 rushing yards on 12 attempts. “I owe it to him. If he wasn’t looking for me, I wouldn’t have had that touchdown.”

Harris referred to his 68-yard touchdown reception with 5:34 until halftime, which was preceded by 28 and 43 yard scoring passes to Brown (132 yards, 5 receptions). They gave Sam Houston a 31-7 advantage, ahead of a dizzying flurry of points.

Ortega answered with a one-yard dive with 2:27 left in the half. Twenty-three seconds later, Trenton Jones was in the end zone on a 37-yard pass play from Prime. Sam Houston recovered the onside kick and only 36 seconds elapsed before Harris notched a seven-yard touchdown run.

“I got into a little trouble the first three games for being late to practice,” Harris said. “Now I’m starting to get into a rhythm..”

The Hurricanes had a 44-14 halftime lead.

Fifty seconds into the second half, Taveon Jones scored on a 45-yard interception return. Sam Houston’s lead expanded to 58-14 with 1:57 left in the third quarter when Harris broke a 60-yard run for his fourth touchdown.

“We’ve never scored 62 points before,” Harris said. “That’s a first for us. It’s a great feeling, just to get the win. I owe it to my line. They really were incredible.”

Sophomore Josh Harris scored the Hurricanes’ final touchdown on a 13-yard run with 8:22 left in the third quarter. It was Sam Houston’s highest scoring output since a 74-0 win over Poteet Sept. 24, 2011.

“We’ve come together as a team and are playing well,” Devin Harris said. “That’s something Coach Brown has developed. Not one player is more important than any other, from the seniors down to the freshmen.”

One area in need of improvement for Sam Houston is points after touchdown. Thomas Jones and Hector Carrion, a soccer player playing his first football game, combined to make just four of 10 attempts.

“We’ve got to fix our extra-point situation,” Brown said. “I thought, at the end, they calmed down – but it’s a big concern. I was going to keep (kicking) until they got it right. In the first round of the playoffs, you can lose the game because you can’t make your extra points.”

For McCollum, Ortega completed 6 of 15 passes for 122 yards. The Cowboys’ leading receivers were Allen Ojeda (59 yards, 3 receptions) and T.J. Martinez (57 yards, 2 receptions).

Martinez scored on a 49-yard pass play with 11:52 remaining. The senior caught a 15-yard pass from Ortega in the right flat and took it down the sideline.
