Chargers capitalize on five Uvalde turnovers
The District 14-5A Division II football game in the Honey Bowl was over before it really got started Friday night.
Boerne Champion took advantage of three Uvalde mistakes and scored 34 points in the first period.
The Chargers rolled on to record a 48-7 victory over the Uvalde Coyotes.
Two fumbles and a muffed punt resulted in three of Champion’s five first-period touchdowns.
“It was a tough first period and our worst performance of the season,” said Uvalde High School head football coach R.T. Gonzales. “We had an opportunity to play for the fourth-seed in the playoffs in our district, but we just did not show up.”
The Coyotes wound up turning the ball over to the Chargers five times during the course of the contest as they lost three fumbles and had two passes intercepted.
“You can’t make those kinds of mistakes against a good team, because they will make you pay for those mistakes. And that is what Champion did,” said Gonzales.
