The Uvalde Coyotes scored five touchdowns in the first half and coasted the rest of way Friday night as they rolled to a 40-14 football victory over the Fort Stockton Panthers.
They scored on four of their six first-half possessions and returned a pass interception for a touchdown to post a comfortable 34-14 half-time lead.
In the second half, the Coyotes rolled up a lot of yards and had many opportunities to add to their lead, but they settled for a touchdown in the fourth period and capitalized on a second-half shutout posted by their defense on the way to recording their lopsided win.
“I am proud of our team. We had six starters sidelined because of injuries, but it was a next-man-up mind set for our players,” said Uvalde High School head football coach R.T. Gonzales.
“Offensively, we executed well for the most part, especially in the first half. Defensively, we played our brand of football,” said Gonzales. “Our special teams did a good job of helping us to win the field-position battle.”
