The Pasadena Memorial Freshman White Team traveled to Atascocita Thursday and battled the Eagles to a 12-12 tie. The Mavericks personified the motto “next man up” and fought toe to toe with their opponent all afternoon. The Mavericks defense repelled two Eagle 2-point conversions to earn the tie. The Mavericks defense harassed the Eagles all game and had several memorable plays. One such play was a brilliant goal-line stand by the Mavericks during the 1st half. Not only did the Mavericks keep the Eagles out of the end zone from the 1 yard line, They also pushed the Eagles back 12 yards in 4 plays. The Mavericks offense was not to be outshone by the defense. Among the standout plays was a half back pass from Cameron Schilhab to Quincy Swain that caught the Eagles napping resulting in a touchdown. Isiah Juarez continues to shine as the lead half back for the Mavericks and his hard running style gave the Eagles fits. In addition to their play on offense, Cameron and Quincy both play outstanding games defensively. The Mavericks will be back at home next week after three weeks away. The Mavericks look forward to seeing you in the stands for next weeks game.
