The Uvalde Coyotes treated a large Uvalde youth football night crowd to a 36-21 district football victory over the San Antonio Harlandale Indians Friday in the Honey Bowl.
“It was great to get our first district win before a large home crowd, especially the youth football players and their coaches. Youth football night is always a special night for our players and for the young kids!” said Uvalde High School head football coach R.T. Gonzales.
“The Indians played us extremely tough. Credit goes to Coach Torres and his staff for preparing the Indians. They played physical football and gave us a lot of different looks defensively,” said Gonzales. “Our kids responded well. I was especially happy with the way we came back in the second half and closed out the game in the fourth quarter.”
The Coyotes built a 23-14 lead in the first half and outscored the Indians, 13-7, in the second half on the way to their first district win.
After stopping Harlandale’s first possession of the game near midfield, the Coyotes began with the football at their 10-yard line after a punt.
On a third-down play, quarterback Michael Mata completed a 13-yard pass to wide receiver Donovan Amaya.
