The defense led by Lucas Yocum and Shannon Taylor limited the Indians to two touchdowns and 229 yards total offense. Lineman Taylor, Russtin Miller, Holden Holm, Travis Walker and Joey Leal pressured the Jourdanton passer and shut down the Indian running game with the help linebackers Yocum, Clayton Whitley, Scott Rosenbaum, Lucas Rannefeld, Kenneth Blevins, and Seth Pipkin. Defensive backs Joseph Lopez, Zane Schorp, and Colton Tindol defended the pass and played good run defense. Yocum had nine tackles, two forced fumbles, and a blocked extra point kick. Taylor had seven and a half tackles, one for a quarterback sack, two for losses, a blocked punt, and a blocked extra point. Holm had a quarterback sack.
Offensive linemen David Torres, Holm, Trey Preece, Donavan Grimes, Aaron McCabe, Leal, Miller, Jacob Bardin, and Walker had a great night protecting Quarterback Tindol and opening holes for the Longhorns backs. Offensively, the Longhorns began the scoring with a first quarter 66 yard Tindol to Dustin White pass. The PAT was no good. In the second quarter, Rosenbaum scored on a three yard run and Marciano Sanchez ran in a two point conversion. Just before the second quarter ended, Jourdanton scored their first touchdown on a short pass play.
Taylor took the ensuing kickoff back 82 yards for a touchdown and White follow with a PAT to end the first half with George West leading 21-6.
