Albert Aguilar (3) and the Sabinal Yellowjackets found plenty of room to run last Friday, as they piled up 616 total yards in a 49-35 win at Center Point. The Jackets are now 5-2 on the year and 2-1 in District 14-AA-I, with a home contest coming up this Friday against Junction.

 

Jackets pile up 616 yards in win over CP

Center Point -- In the previous win against Harper, the Sabinal Yellowjackets started fast, then held on for the victory.

Friday, Oct. 17, at Pirate Stadium, the Jackets took a quarter to get heated up, then ran wild for over 600 yards of offense in a 49-35 victory.

The win raises the Jackets’ season record to 5-2, and 2-1 in District 14-AA-I. They’ll be back at home this Friday, Oct. 24 to host Junction in another district game at 7:30 p.m.

Playing at Center Point seems to bring out the best in Sabinal’s offense, or at least for the last two years. A year ago, in a 69-21 win, Sabinal put up a school record 785 yards of total offense. Last Friday, the 616 yards the team recorded is the second-most in school history, surpassed only by the game last September. The Jackets had 348 yards on the ground and 268 more through the air.

The Jackets got on the board first, getting a three-yard touchdown run from Albert Aguilar just before the first period ended. Shane Medina was perfect on all seven extra point attempts.

They were back in the endzone less than two minutes later, when Pablo Arteaga intercepted a Pirate pass and returned it 50 yards for a score and a 14-0 lead.

Aguilar capped the next drive with a 15-yard TD run to give Sabinal a comfortable 21-0 lead.

CP finally got on the board with 3:55 left in the half, when Kolby Kitchens, who threw for 289 yards and four TDs, hit Aaron Walters for a seven-yard scoring strike.

Just before halftime, the Jackets answered, with JR Vera scoring on a 26-yard keeper.

CP came out of the locker room to get on the board first in the second half, on a 27-yard Kitchens pass to Alan Zendejo.

But Sabinal responded twice in a row to go up 42-14. David Hernandez, the Jackets’ leading rusher with 89 yards, scored from the 4, and four minutes later, Juan Aguilera took it in from 10 yards out.

After a Pirate TD on a 12-yard Larry Leitha run, the Jackets put up their final TD of the night, a 27-yard pass from Vera to Andrew Guevara.

Two more TD passes from Kitchens in the final four minutes took the score to its final of 49-35.
