In the first quarter Refugio took complete control that lasted throughout the entire game.
Quarterback Travis Quintanilla tossed a 7-yard touchdown pass to Chase Whetsel on their first possession to light up the scoreboard. The pair hooked up for their second score of the game, this time from 60 yards out to make the score 14-0. The last score of the period came thanks to the speed and agility of Draigon Silvas as he plowed 11 yards for the score.
In the second quarter the Refugio starters pushed the throttle to wide open and scored five times with three different players.
Marcus Thompson scored twice, catching touchdown passes for 20 yards and 23 yards. Tyler Castellano also caught two passes for touchdowns. One catch for 12 yards and another for 25 yards.
Silvas also scored on a 9-yard TD run to make the score 56-0 going into halftime.
The Refugio backups took over in the second half and showed no mercy. Backup quarterback Brett Davis was on fire throwing 4 touchdown passes, two in the third quarter and two in the final period. Davis’s first TD pass went to Dana Franklin from 22 yards out.
His next two touchdown passes went to Cameron Loveday. The first for 6 yards and the next for a 9-yard touchdown. Davis capped off Refugio’s scoring with a 26-yard toss to James Durst.
Kicker Adolfo Cordero capped off yet another perfect night with the point after to make the final score 84-0.
