Tonight your Freshman Scorpions traveled to Goldwater to take on a very good Bulldog team. It was a tough fought battle that found the Scorpions down 28 to 38. Adversity brings out the true character of a man, and this team came together and left everything on the field. Possessions changed hands back and forth. The only touchdown in the third quarter was scored by us on a great drive of hard running and timely passing. After a successful onside kick, DE had the ball on the 50 yard-line. We were still trailing 34 to 38 to start the fourth quarter. Our offense drove the ball down the field picking up to key first downs scoring on a great pass from Andrew Gonzalez to Andrew Patterson to take the lead 42 to 38. Our defense got a huge stop on fourth down to give the ball back to our offense. Our offense ran the ball down the field using up all but 1 minute left in the fourth quarter before they punched the ball in from the 3 yard-line with some hard running by Adrian and Ramos. After converting the 2 point conversion we were up 50 to 38. After three incomplete passes by the Bulldogs, we came home victorious. So proud of everyone tonight. The defense gave their strongest performance of the season in the second half, shutting out the Bulldogs’ offense.
