Varsity Football vs Hamshire-Fannett
September 5, 2012By Nate Perrone of Splendora High School
Friday night the Splendora community witnessed the first outing of the 2012 Wildcats Football Team. They were presented with a young team, full of energy & ready to meet the challenges of the new season.
Statistically on the night the Wildcat defense delivered a shutout against the Hamshire-Fannett Longhorns. Aided by 2 interceptions from the secondary, one of which was returned for a touchdown, the defense limited the Longhorns to just over 200 yards of total offense. Special team play was critical in recovering an onside kick & in winning the field position battle by covering punts. Offensively the Wildcats produced over 200 yards rushing behind strong offensive line blocking and overall the offense finished with 300 yards total offense. To round out the team effort, the Wildcats proved their discipline & mental toughness in the game by committing zero penalties on the night.
The Wildcats will continue their journey of the season in traveling to Hardin-Jefferson on Friday the 7th @ 700pm. Come join them on this road trip and demonstrate the strength of the Splendora community.
