October 12, 2013Splendora High School
COLDSPRING, Tx - The Splendora Wildcat Junior Varsity Football Team scored on a 68 yard strike from Fullback Javier Rodriguez to Ricardo Quintero on a perfectly executed offensive trickery play to stun the Coldspring Trojans on their first offensive possession, but it was not enough as the Trojans prevailed 38-12.
Quarterback Zach Zweifel (who would later tack on a 'Cats TD) threw a backwards lateral to Rodriguez, who then fired a perfect spiral to a wide open Quintero, who raced in for the Splendora TD, as the Wildcats took an early 6-0 lead. Jonathan Rodriguez's PAT sailed wide left.
Trailing 24-12, Splendora pieced together a 65 yard scoring drive, with Zweifel going in from a yard out. Zweifel also had a 45 yard run on the night. Javier Rodriguez hooked up with Jonathan Rodriguez on a pass play which covered 39 yards. Splendora rushed for 128 yards on 23 carries. John Kelly ran for 38 yards and Cecilio Alvarado chimed in with 28 yards.
Coldspring's running game was hitting on all cylinders as the Trojans broke several long runs enroute to the victory. The Wildcats were led defensively by Defensive Tackle Erik Garcia. Jonathan Rodriguez picked off a Trojan pass and Javier Rodriguez recovered a fumble. Hunter Carslile played good pass coverage for Splendora.
Splendora plays Shepherd on Thursday at Wildcat Stadium. Kick off is expected around 6:30 p.m.
