JV Goats shutout by Tigers

By Sean Turgeon, Special to The Groesbeck Journal

The full moon lit the night sky over Groesbeck Stadium Thursday evening, while the anxious coaches, players, and Goat fans were hoping for a win, but it would be the Malakoff Tigers junior varsity team that would carry the W back home as they slipped by Groesbeck, 29-0.

The Malakoff Tigers scored first on a 35-yard pass play in the first quarter.

In the second quarter, the Goat defense hung tough thanks to a sack by Jeremy Rodriguez.

Playing hard on the defense was Beau Pagel, Seth Kirk, John Reed, Frankie Smith, Trevor Morrow, Coker Holloway, Braxton Harris, and Casen Crane; all were out there punishing the Tiger offense. With two minutes left until half-time, the Tigers scored on a 40-yard pass and then got the ball back with 51 seconds to score again making it 22-0 at the half.

Groesbeck kicked off to the Tigers in the third quarter, with Malakoff taking their first drive down to the Groesbeck 10-yard line. A Malakoff pass on the very next play, that clearly hit the ground, but was called a touchdown made it Malakoff 29, Groesbeck 0.
