It was almost as if the Moody Trojans had just kicked a game-winning field goal with the looks from some of the Calallen players. In reality the Wildcats owned the Trojans from start to finish, winning by a score of 48-3.
But the Trojans field goal on the game's final play snapped Calallen's defensive streak of 19 straight shutout quarters.
"Well, we still haven't allowed a touchdown," said Coach Phil Danaher. "Somebody's going to score on you sooner or later, and that's what I told the guys."
"It's a privilege," cornerback Avery Cortez said in reference to the streak. "Not a lot of teams get to do something like that."
It was Cortez who started things off for the 'Cats. Following a three-and-out by the Trojans on the opening drive, Cortez returned the ensuing punt for a 57-yard score. It was the first of a 28-point quarter for the 'Cats.
Senior Marcus Price had another big night, scoring on a 66-yard run on the opening quarters final play.
Sophomore running back Robert Maldonado also contributed to the offenses big night, with three rushing touchdowns.
The win gives the 'Cats a 2-0 district record and 5-1 overall. Next week they will play neighboring rival, Tuloso-Midway, who lost to Alice, 38-7.
"The Tuloso-Calallen game is alway tough, because it's a rivalry," Danaher said. "They always play us tough. We've still got to get a few more to clinch for the playoffs, so we can't look too far ahead."
