The Cats improved their non-league record to 2-0. It was a solid effort in all three phases of the game. The offense got off to a quick start scoring a touchdown on its opening drive, and added a quick field goal after the kickoff team recovered a fumble on the ensuing kick.
Turnovers always play a big role in the outcome of a game. The Cats added 3 interceptions to their fumble recovery making the total turnovers 4, while not giving up the ball at all.
The defense was stout all night long holding the Longhorns out of the endzone.
The offense was very efficient totaling 440 yards of offense. The passing attack was a combined effort between JL Miller and Yost Girvan. Combined they completed 13 of 15 passes for 190 yards. On the ground the Wildcats totalled 250 yards rushing with Ryan Garwood, Gian Lagemann and Jared Mazzeferro leading the way.
Next up for the Cats is a road trip to Rabobank Stadium in Salinas to take on the Haybalers from San Benito High School. The Balers are a perennial playoff team that plays a tough physical brand of football. It will be a great test for the Cats!
