Eighth grade football team takes Hutto win

1373 N. Ave. C - 285-2457

Last week, the eighth grade Wildcat football team traveled to Hutto Farley for a very competitive game. The Wildcats took the opening kickoff and on the second play, Jonathan Gonzales connected with De’Clayvin Simmons for a 61-yard touchdown pass. The PAT failed and the Cats were up 6-0 with just a couple of minutes off of the clock. After a good defensive stand, the Cats struck again when Nelson Williams powered in from 5 yards out. Gonzales threw to Willie Johnson for the 2-point score after touchdown. The Cats were now up 14-0. Noah Townsend picked off a Hutto pass at the end of the first quarter and the Cats were rolling again. Michael Joseph ran in a 2-yard touchdown early in the second quarter to make the score 20-0 in favor of the Wildcats at halftime. The Hutto coaches made some adjustments at the half and the young Hippo team came out on fire in the second half. They had a nice drive to open the third quarter and scored on a long TD pass to narrow the score to 20-6. The Cats went flat at that time

and couldn’t get much going due to the Hippo defense. Jacob Navejas picked off another pass and ran it in for an apparent touchdown but it was called back by a penalty. The third quarter ended with the Cats up 20-6. The fourth quarter got really interesting at that point. Gonzales threw a short pass to Johnson who turned it in to a nice 35yard touchdown catch. Gonzales then ran in the 2-point score to raise the Cat lead to 28-6. As it turned out, they would need every point on the board. The Hippos offense caught fire and scored twice on long passes to make it a very close 28-20 Cat lead. The Cats had to defend three onside kick attempts by Farley and were successful each time. Fortunately for the Cats, their defense held on as Michael Guyton picked off a Hutto pass in the end zone as time expired sealing the victory. The win raised the Cat record to 6 wins and only 1 loss. The Cats finish their season with a home game against Cedar Creek and then travel to Taylor on November 11 for their last game of the year.

JV football team defeats Bastrop Bears The Elgin Wildcat JV football team defeated the Bastrop Bears 26-12 last Thursday night in a game shortened by lightning concerns. In the almost here quarters of play, the Cats' physicality was evident in pushing around the Bears for most of the contest. The biggest play was a huge hit, forced fumble and recovery by Ray Ray

Walker. Standout play was shown by Cesar Perez, James Dzienowski, Corey Garcia, Josh Simmons, Jackson Webb, Ben Watson and Joe Lane Kiser. Since Cedar Creek does not have a JV squad, the Wildcats finish he regular season with a record of 73 and 5-2 in district. It is the most JV wins in four years.
