The PMHS Mavs JV Black team was defeated yesterday at home by the Brazoswood Buccaneers by the score of 0 to 24. The Mavs started off the game with a promising drive into Brazoswood territory but then a juggled pass fell into the hands of a Buccaneer defender putting them in great field position. The Mavs run defense led by Greg Carringer, Roque Garza and Angel Sanchez, stepped up to the challenge. Unfortunately, it was the passing attack of Brazoswood that would be the Achilles heal of the Mavs, giving up two scores in the air. Offensively, the Mavs battled all night and moved the ball at times.The Mavericks did convert a few first downs and did make the Bucs work for their TD’s but their efforts were not enough. The Mavs played hard and gave great effort despite being short handed at key positions like linebacker and running back. Everett Epps hard nose running was set up by ferocious Charlie and Combo blocks from Abraham Baez and Francisco Barahona. We caught up with Head Coach Garcia after the game to ask how he felt wrapping up the pre season and heading into district. “Well, anytime we get a chance to go out and play a quality physical team it raises the bar for our kids and we have to match the intensity. We have to tip our hat to Brazoswood, they came out here and were hungry. We need to get back to work this week and it starts at practice. We will be ready to go as we start District.” The Mavs will take on the Sam Rayburn Texans next in their first game of district play.

On a sweltering Thursday night, the Maverick Teal team had finally found that winning feeling. It had been two long years for the sophomore group, having not won a game since their days in intermediate football. The Mavs had no trouble moving the football scoring on the second play from scrimmage. The Mavs went into halftime with a 6-0 lead, via a long touchdown run from QB Tristan Jones. It was here that Coach Joseph and Coach McDonald would challenge the Teal team to “find that winning feeling.” The young Maverick team would come out to dominate the second half led by QB Tristan Jones, who had 200 yards rushing and 2 touchdowns on the day. Joseph Giraldo, chipped in with 80 yards and a touchdown. The Maverick ground game accounted for most of the offense’s 325 yards. Defensively the Mavericks, led by safety Darius Carr, defensive tackle Bryant Martinez, and linebacker Christian Jiminez, kept a tough Buc’s team out of the endzone and under 200 yards of offense on the night. Linebacker Able Garcia stood out with an interception and with a strip sack forced fumble. Jacob Perry was solid in the middle clogging up the Buccaneer run game. On special teams Jaime Casteneda punted the ball beautifully pinning the Buc’s team inside their own ten yard line. “I’m glad I can use one of my winning speeches with these guys today,” said Coach Joseph. The sophomore Mavs look to build on their success next week against neighborhood rival Sam Rayburn. Quarterback Tristan Jones ran for 2 touchdowns and running back Defensively the Mavericks were stout keeping the Buccaneers out of the end zone the entire game. The JV Teal will be on the road next week against the San Rayburn Texans.

“They were who we thought they were” was the quote Head Freshman Football Coach John McGough told the Brazoria County Facts newspaper. Pasadena Memorial coming off a big win in Dayton, couldn’t carry the momentum into an always hostile Brazoswood HS environment. From the opening kickoff, the Mavericks couldn’t find a groove. Possibly the long bus ride or a short week, the Maverick Offense was stymied by a tough #17 ranked Brazoswood Team . Joe Reyes was still able to pass for 187 yards with nice receptions by Jaelyn Nowlin and a Touchdown by Ethan Munoz. Jaylen Bell the Mav’s season leading rusher, still accumulated 101 total yards. Defensively the Maverick’s were led by Landon Perez, while Adrian Avina was able to put the Maverick’s in good position with a fumble recovery. Next week the Maverick’s take on District foe, Sam Rayburn HS. “Look, there is no doubt we have some things to work on” said Offensive Line Coach Jerry Allbritton. How are the Mavericks work this coming week will determine the outcome of next week game.
