Corpus Christi’s Calallen Wildcats proved why they are one of the top-ranked football teams in the state Friday as they rolled to a 56-21 bi-district football victory over the Uvalde Coyotes.
The Wildcats scored five times in the first period on their way to a 49-7 half-time lead.
And the Wildcats added a touchdown early in the second period to wind up their scoring in the contest at Floresville’s Eschenburg Field.
The Coyotes rallied for a pair of fourth-period touchdowns to cut Calallen’s margin of victory to 35 points.
“Calallen has a really good football team. We knew going in that playing them was going to be a challenge. This was a great opportunity tonight for our kids to see what it takes to play at the state championship level. Ultimately, in the future that is where we want to be. With time we hope to be,” said Uvalde High School head football coach R.T. Gonzales. “I’m proud of the effort and pride our guys showed in finishing the game and not quitting.”
