KINGSVILLE - It’s been 16 quarters and no offense has been able to score against the Calallen Wildcats.
The Wildcat's defense racked up their third shutout on the year, this time against the Kingsville Brahmas 44-0, at Javelina Stadium.
The defense held the Brahmas to 107 total yards on the night, 89 on the ground and 17 through the air.
“Our guys played hard and they got to the ball. ” Calallen Head Coach Phil Danaher said. “We executed our defensive game plan tonight.”
The Calallen offense came out and looked just as impressive, as they went to the ground game with Marcus Price and Robert Maldonado. The two combined for 225 rushing yards out of the Wing-T offense once again.
Price scored in the first quarter on an eight-yard run after leading his team down the field exclusively on the ground.
After a two-yard Avery Cortez touchdown early in the second quarter, the defense halted a Brahmas drive to set up a 14-yard touchdown pass from Andrew McCurley to Price. The score put the 'Cats up 21-0 at half.
The second half was highlighted by a Maldonado five-yard score and a 46-yard gallop for Price.
Price ended the night with 173 yards of offense and three scores.
“Oh yeah, Marcus can go,” Danaher said. “People underestimate his strength. He’s got great balance, but he’s hard to bring down.”
Calallen will host the Moody Trojans on Friday night at 7:30 p.m. The Trojans are coming off a 36-7 loss to the Alice Coyotes.
