Cardinals VS Mavericks Recap

The Cardinal varsity football team encountered a rough start to their 2015 district schedule on Friday night.   An efficient passing attack by the visiting CC Winn Mavericks and a game delay due to possible inclement weather contributed to a disappointing 27-16 defeat for the Red Storm.    Things looked good early as  the  Cardinals jumped out in front on a 35 yard touchdown pass from Senior QB Jonny Trevino to Junior wideout Erik Luna.  However, following a 30-minute delay in the 2nd quarter due to lightning in the area, the Mavericks took control and built a 21-8 lead going into the 4th quarter.  Junior Matt Collier’s touchdown run cut the lead to 21-16, but the Mavericks were able to answer with a touchdown of their own for the final score.

Collier and Senior QB Marc Garza led the Cardinal rushing attack, while Luna contributed 8 catches in the passing game.  Junior linebacker Andre Martin led the defense in recording 2 quarterback sacks.  Seniors Travis Quillin and Nathan Rosokoff each scored 2-point conversions.

The Cardinals will look to get back on track this Friday night as they travel to Laredo to take on the Nixon Mustangs.
