Uvalde High School’s homecoming football game in the Honey Bowl Friday was a thriller.
But the Coyotes wound up losing, 34-20, to the Gonzales Apaches.
The Uvaldeans were plagued by turnovers, missed opportunities, and untimely penalties.
Through 11 offensive possessions, the Coyotes punted the ball away only once. But they lost the ball four times on downs and turned the ball over four times on interceptions.
“We cannot put ourselves in a position to win with costly penalties and turnovers. Especially against a really good team like Gonzales,” said UHS head football coach R.T. Gonzales. “Even with the penalties and turnovers, we had opportunities, but we were not able to take advantage.
“I am proud of these kids for fighting until the end. They never quit,” said Gonzales. “We will use this game as a learning opportunity as we head into preparations for the start of district play.”
