Coyotes lose first district game

Alamo Heights beats UHS 48-21

The Alamo Heights Mules scored on six of their first seven offensive possessions of the first half and they went on to record a 48-21 district football victory over the Uvalde Coyotes Friday night at Alamo Heights.

Ranked as the third-best Class 5A Division II team in the region in the most-recent Texas High School Coaches Association Coaches Poll, the Mules rolled up 21 first downs and 425 total yards en route to their second district win of the season.

“The Mules have a good team. I think they have a great chance to compete for the district title. They have some great skill guys on offense and they play good, fundamental defense,” said Uvalde High School head football coach R.T. Gonzales. “Heights has a senior-heavy, talented team. They are going to be a tough team for other teams in our district to beat.”

Alamo Heights began the evening with a seven-play, 64-yard drive that ended on a 13-yard touchdown run by running back Joshua Yznaga.

Seth Ellis’ point-after kick failed, but the Mules took a 6-0 lead with 10:10 left in the first period.
