Splendora loses to Liberty
October 2, 2013Splendora High School
SPLENDORA, Tx - The Liberty Panthers brought their "A" game Friday night to Wildcat Stadium, shutting out the Wildcats, who had not been shut out in over 3 years.
Three turnovers didn't help Splendora's defensive cause, however, Liberty's quintet running back combination of Dennis Antoine, Aric Foster, Andrew Fregia, JJ Arrington and Sed Deblac was tough. Antoine rushed for 158 yards on only 8 carries and Foster chipped in with 109 yards on 8 carries to lead the Panthers.
Offensively, Splendora found the going fairly rough, too, as the Wildcats ran 41 plays for 186 total yards. QB Ty Nixon completed 6 of 11 passes, 3 of which were caught by Eric Brocken. The Wildcat's Jay Bradford ran for 114 earned yards on 20 totes. Stacy Reneau chipped in with 45 yards on 7 carries. 'Cats punter Tyler Whitmire was busy, punting 4 times for 86 yards with a long of 37 yards.
Michael Moore had a good game defensively for Splendora, garnering 17 tackles. DB Toby Clark had 12 tackles to lead the secondary.
Splendora will take the short journey to Cleveland, Friday, October 4, to take on a very talented Cleveland Indian team. Kickoff is slated for 7:30.
