Second quarter explosion leads to a Yellowjacket romp
Ben Bolt -- Sabinal shifted into high gear last Friday, Sept. 5, with a balanced attack totaling 512 yards, and producing 50 points.
The Yellowjackets, in their first-ever meeting with Ben Bolt, flattened the Badgers, 50-18, to climb to 2-0 on the season.
With the two road wins under their belt, the Jackets will open their home schedule this Friday, Sept. 12, when they host Cotulla in a 7:30 p.m. game at Yellowjacket Stadium.
Sabinal’s first score last Friday at J.E. Barrera Stadium came with a bang. Angel Hernandez broke loose for a 91-yard run with 7:37 left in the opening quarter. Shane Medina tacked on the extra point for a 7-0 lead which stood for most of the first half.
The Jackets’ defense got into the act with four minutes left in the half, when the Ben Bolt punter was sacked in the endzone for a safety.
That big defensive play served to ignite the Yellowjackets’ offense.
Following the free kick, Sabinal took it right down the field for a score. Justice Gonzales hauled in a 10-yard scoring pass from JR Vera. Hernandez added the conversion run to make the score 17-0.
The Jackets got it back on a loose ball on the kickoff, and struck once more before the half. The same combination, Vera to Gonzales scored the TD, this time from 38 yards away, giving Sabinal a sizable 24-0 halftime lead.
The Jackets received the second half kickoff, and needed only 87 seconds to get back into the endzone. Vera threw a 73-yard strike to Andrew Guevara for a score. Medina’s PAT made it 31-0.
Just one minute later, Ben Bolt finally got on the board, with Andres Solis busting loose for a 53-yard scoring run. The conversion attempt failed, leaving the score at 31-6.
Later in the period, Hernandez, who had only five rushes in the game, broke loose on his second coast-to-coast touchdown, scoring from 84 yards away. He rushed for 188 yards, for an average of over 37 yards per carry.
The Badgers answered with the second of Solis’ three TD runs, a one-yard plunge with a minute left in the third.
With a 38-12 lead, Vera found Gonzales open for their third TD pass connection of the night, a 43-yard strike to open the fourth quarter.
Ben Bolt scored on its next play from scrimmage as well, with Solis going 65 yards to paydirt.
Sabinal closed out the scoring a few minutes later, when Albert Aguilar passed to Jonathan Silva from 12 yards away with 7:08 left in the game.
The Jackets’ balanced attack included 250 yards rushing and 262 passing.
