The Banquete Bulldogs suffered their first loss of the season at the hands of the Aransas Pass Panthers, 41-27.

The Bulldogs started off strong, returning a fumble for a score and an early 7-0 lead. They controlled the game for much of the first half.

However, the Panthers were able to grab some momentum, scoring just before the half to tie things at 21.

Both teams fought hard through the second half, but the Panther defense proved too much for Banquete, holding them to only a touchdown in the final two quarters.

Banquete will have a bye next week before they start district play against Riviera.
