Friday the 13th proved to be an unlucky night for the Uvalde Coyotes as they lost their first football game of the season.
The Coyotes put 37 points on the scoreboard, but it wasn’t enough.
Southwest’s Dragons scored five touchdowns in the second half and wound up with a 48-37 football victory over the Coyotes.
The game was a tale of two halves.
In the first half, it was a defensive battle as the Dragons built up a 13-10 lead over the Coyotes.
But the football game turned into a track meet in the second half as the teams combined to score 62 points.
“It was a crazy game. Mostly defense in the first half and mostly offense in the second half,” said Uvalde High School head football coach R.T. Gonzales.
“We made some mistakes and you cannot do that against a talented, well-coached team like Southwest because they will make you pay for those mistakes,” said Gonzales. “We had some key plays where we were not disciplined in our play, where we did not do our job. Southwest took advantage of that.
