Coyotes fall in season opener

The Uvalde Coyotes got behind early, trailed all the way, but never gave up the fight in their football game Friday night.

Quarterback Michael Mata connected with wide receiver D’Andre Carroll for a pair of 73-yard touchdown passes in the fourth quarter.

But it was not enough as the Coyotes lost a 44-15 decision to the PrepaTec Borregos of Monterrey, Mexico in their football season opener Friday in the Honey Bowl.

“We made too many mistakes that gave Tech many points without them earning them. We lost the penalty, turnover, and field position battle. It is tough to overcome those kinds of mistakes against a good football team like Tech,” said Uvalde High School head football coach R.T. Gonzales.

“But our kids played played hard in the game and we will be working hard in practice to clean up our mistakes,” said Gonzales. “I would rather have those mistakes now. And to see what works and does not work. This will help us to get better as we prepare for district play.”
