On Tuesday, October 25th the 8th Grade Panthers traveled to Uvalde to take on the Coyotes. Despite two hard fought games the Panthers fell short with scores of 28 -6.
In the White Team Game Joshua Raygosa caught a 35 yard pass from Tyler Mangum to score and get the Panthers on the board late in the game. Big runs by Ashton Solis sparked offense early in the game. Sound defense including sacks by Isaiah Moreno and Ethan Garza held the Coyotes. Moreno also recovered a fumble to help keep the Panthers alive.
In the Orange Team Game the Panthers struggled to get the ball moving but late in the game they marched down the field with tough runs by Mason Vogel and a big reception from Sam Clendenin to Alexander Rivas. That drive was capped off with 4 yard charge by Alexander Rivas. The Panther Defense held strong in the second half with sacks recorded by Christopher Elizardo, Kaiden Hernandez, Jared Laque and Alexander Rivas.
The Panthers look forward to redeeming themselves next week against Boerne North to close out their 2016 season. Go Panthers Go!!!
