JV Black – 13-6
The JV black had their homecoming Wednesday with a 13-6 nail biter over Sam Rayburn. An early fake punt put the Mavs ahead with the defense holding firm the first half. Kaiden Griffin led the charge with 3 first half interceptions. Franco Godoy, Francisco Chavez and Sebastian Gonzales combined for big stops. Offensively the Mavs moved the ball well but fell short of points when crossing the 50-until the game was on the line. QB Ben Still found Charles Hayes for the go ahead touchdown and the Mavs never looked back.
JV Teal 8-13
Great effort by the JV Teal against powerhouse Fort Bend Ridge Point. The Mavs were defeated 13 to 8 but played very tough and physical all night long. The lone score of the game came on a 40 yard strike from Roger Orellana to Quincy Swain. Ismael Gonzalez ran the ball hard in between the tackles while receivers Xavier Garcia, Abel Aguirre, Josue Barrera and Isaac Garcia had multiple catches each throughout the game.
Defensively Eric Medina, Michael Edwards, Josh Vaglienty, Ismael Escobar, Robert Salazar, and Oscar Vallejo all had big tackles and plays that limited Ridge Point’s high powered running attack. Great job Mavs!
Freshman Black 6-13
The Sam Rayburn Texans took an early lead on a muffed punt return. Down 6-0, the Maverick’s came back on a touchdown run by Christian Ibarra. Good blocking up front led by Robert Freeman and Devin Puga.
The running game was headed by Everrett Epps who was giving Sam Rayburn more than they could handle with good hard nose running. The Defensive Unit was lead by Matt Leal and Christian Ibarra.
Next up for the Mavericks, an always tenacious South Houston Trojan Team.
Freshman Teal 0-24
Unfortunately for the Maverick freshman B team, Rayburn’s size and speed proved too much. The Mavs moved the ball all night, but just couldn’t find the end zone. Running back Jesse Cano and QB Isaac Mendez led the charge. The Mavs lost 24-0, but had some excellent defensive efforts from Ayden Blackmon and Noah Rodriguez. Josh Giraldo ran the ball really well late in the fourth quarter. The Mavs will keep fighting.
