The Bandera defense allowed just 160 yards, senior quarterback Tyler Moore accounted for 232 total yards and three touchdowns and the Bulldogs won their fifth straight game in a 21-14 victory over the Javelinas Friday night in Crystal City.
Bandera moved to 5-1 on the season and 1-0 in District 15-4A Division II play, joining Carrizo Springs (33-26 win over Devine) and Hondo (56-13 win over Pearsall) atop the standings after the first week of the district schedule.
“We knew heading into Crystal City for our district opener that it would be an extremely difficult place to play,” Bandera head coach and athletic director Joel Fontenot-Amedee said.
“Our mentality was that we were both 0-0. We played a phenomenal defensive game up until the last 4 minutes of the game. To get where we want to go, we have to have better special teams play. Offensively, we did some good things but we weren’t consistent.
“That being said, we are fired up to be 5-1 and 1-0 in district play. We had some young guys step up and make big plays when we needed it and we expect that to continue,” the Coach said.
The Bulldogs will return to action at home next week as the team hosts the undefeated Carrizo Springs in what is expected to be one of the deciding games in the race for the District 15-4A District Championship. Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. this Friday at Bulldog Stadium.
