Uvaldeans win their first game
Inclement weather delayed the conclusion of what was an inevitable football victory by the Uvalde Coyotes Friday.
The Coyotes scored four times in the first half and twice in the second half to capture their first win of the season, a 41-7 victory over the San Antonio Memorial Minutemen.
They delighted a large Uvalde High School homecoming crowd to a near-flawless first half as the Coyotes rolled up a 28-0 advantage over Memorial.
Less than 10 minutes into the half-time intermission, the Memorial band cleared the field and fans in the Honey Bowl were advised to seek shelter under the grandstands because of lightning detected from an approaching line of thunderstorms in the area.
The lengthy weather delay caused school officials to move the homecoming half-time ceremonies, including the crowning of this year’s homecoming queen to the UHS Cafeteria.
Following a 90-minute delay, the Coyotes and Memorial went back to the field and played the remainder of the game.
