It was almost as if the Calallen Wildcats were following a script when they traveled to play the Tuloso-Midway Warriors. Much like last week when they played Moody, Avery Cortez returned a punt for the opening touchdown. Much like last week, Marcus Price had a handful of jaw-dropping plays, the defense only allowed a field-goal and the 'Cats were essentially unchallenged, keeping their undefeated district record in tact.
"I see that we're getting a little bit better each week," Calallen Coach Phil Danaher said. "When you have the capabilities of doing so many things, it's nice."
The 'Cats defense continued on a solid season, holding the Warriors to just a field goal in the third quarter. With the Warriors unable to find the endzone, the Calallen defense now holds a streak of 24 consecutive quarters without allowing a touchdown. The 'Cats are allowing just under six points a game on the season.
While Tuloso-Midway still remains winless on the year, the Warriors were happy to see the return of quarterback Jonathan Iglesias who had been out of the previous two games due to injury. With the Calallen game behind them, T-M will look to get their first win and a possible late playoff push in their final four games of the season.
"(The team) is hurting right now," T-M Coach Jose Sendejar said. "We learned after the Miller game that you don't want to make losing a habit. But now they know that they have something to work on with the playoffs still in the picture."
Calallen will host Flour Bluff next week, who had a trilling win over Alice, 35-28. Tuloso-Midway will travel to Kingsville, who pulled away late from Moody, 45-38. Kickoff time for both games will be at 7:30 p.m.
