The Calallen Wildcats Junior High eighth-grade football teams invaded Veterans Memorial Stadium on Tuesday evening and took no prisoners.

The White teams met in the opener and it was 24-0 in favor of the Wildcats at the end of the first quarter.

The visitors added another TD in the second quarter and one final touchdown late in the fourth to capture the opener 38-0 over the MMS Trojans.

There were a few bright spots for the Trojans in the contest.

“The eighth-grade White team got a really good effort from Dylan Knapp and Andres Gaitan, both played offense and defense,” said MMS coach Nick Whatley.

The nightcap was much the same as the bigger, faster and talented Calallen squad built up an early 19-0 first quarter lead.

The Wildcats added eight points in the second period to go into halftime with a 27-0 advantage.

The final score of the contest came on the opening kickoff of the second half. The Moreno Trojans kicked off to the Wildcats and their return man weaved his way 72 yards for a TD.

That lighted the scoreboard to show a 33-0 Wildcat lead. The clock never slowed in the second half and the final stayed at 33-0 with the Wildcats capturing the dominating win.

James Larakers was in on several tackles for the Trojan defense as were Tristan Pelitire, Daniel Amador and Derrick Salazar.

“The eighth-grade Orange team was led by QB Pelitire, Amador and Salazar, all playing both ways.

Anthony Ruiz and Ryan Casarez both ran well for the Trojans early in the second half, picking up first downs against the tough Wildcat defense.

The seventh -grade contests were in Calallen. The seventh-grade B or White team lost 16-0.

“We played a good game and fought hard the entire game. I was happy with there effort,” said MMS coach Randy Maupin.

The Orange or A squad lost 34-12 against a unbeaten Calallen team.

“We scored first but the PAT failed and we led 6-0.They came back scored twice to make it 14-6,” said Maupin.

Beeville scored again right before the end of the first half, making it 14-12. Both scores came from Cody Elliott.

“The second was all Calallen,” said Maupin.

The Moreno Trojans will face Kingsville next Tuesday evening. The seventh-grade squads are scheduled to play at home, beginning at 5 p.m.
