The Tuloso-Midway Warriors lost their closest game yet, losing to the Pleasanton Eagles, 17-10, Friday night.
Pleasanton quarterback Niko Salinas had a consistently good game throwing going 11 for 15 with 95 yards and one touchdown pass. Salinas also had a solid running game, rushing 110 yards with a touchdown.
Tuloso-Midway's Jacob Ferguson also had a 100-yard-plus rushing performance, going 103 yards on 12 carries.
The teams played evenly throughout the game, but the difference was an interception thrown by Warriors quarterback David Alvarez, as well as a lost fumble, from the team.
Salinas scored a 3-yard rushing touchdown giving the Eagles an early 7-0 lead. But a 30-yard field goal attempt from Tuloso-Midway's Ryan Reeder closed the gap slightly as Pleasanton was up, 7-3, after the first quarter.
Defense played a big factor in the second quarter, but a field goal from the Eagles' Josh Manley extended Pleasanton's lead, 10-3, heading into halftime.
With the score still the same in the fourth quarter, the Warriors tied the game up after Kody McDowell rushed from nine yards out as the game was locked at 10-10.
The Eagles broke the tie, as well as Tuloso-Midway's chances for a win, after Salinas threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to receiver Martin Hernandez giving Pleasanton the win.
The Warriors fell to 0-4 after the loss as they face their final non-district opponent this week against the Port Lavaca Calhoun Sandcrabs on the road.
Port Lavaca Calhoun is 2-1 this season after upsetting the Ingleside Mustangs Friday night.
After that game, the Warriors will take a week off preparing for the district season as they face the Robstown Cottonpickers in their opener on Oct.12.
The game is scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m. at Cottonpicker Field.
Last season, Robstown was the only district opponent that Tuloso-Midway beat.
