A week after Calallen appeared to figure out its woes on offense, there was little the Wildcats could do in a 17-0 loss to Port Lavaca Calhoun in Friday night’s District 30-4A opener.
Calallen (0-1, 3-2 overall) managed only nine first downs and 143 total yards, 90 rushing and 53 passing. The Sandcrabs (1-0, 4-0), meanwhile, piled up 309 yards on the ground.
Calhoun opened the scoring in the first quarter with a 40-yard field goal by Juan Escamilla. Quarterback Hunter Boerm helped extend the lead to 10-0 in the second on a 2-yard run.
The Sandcrabs sealed the victory in the fourth when Jakorious Williams scored from 14-yards out.
Boerm did most of the damage for Calhoun, rushing for 217 yards on 28 carries. Williams finished with 24 carries for 95 yards.
Calallen running back Robert Maldonado led the team with 11 carries for 67 yards. Sheldon Metoyer, Cody Wright, Austin Revels and Andrew McCurley combined to rush for 39 yards.
Connor Lowrance went 5 of 14 for 47 yards, while McCurley completed one pass for 6 yards.
