The Plowboys didn’t waste time jumping out to an early lead against Seagraves, scoring quickly on their first two drives and making three touchdowns in the first quarter. Francisco Garcia made the first TD on a three-yard run. Juan Solis kicked the extra point, and the Plowboys were ahead 7-0. The second came shortly thereafter on a 12-yard pass play from Brayden Beal to Jose Ortega, and the Solis extra-point kick made the score 14-0. Later, Beal threw another scoring pass to Ortega, this one for 30 yards, and with the extra point the Plowboys took a commanding 21-0 lead.
The Plowboys extended their lead to 27-0 in the second quarter when Beal hit Ortega again for another touchdown, this time on a 26-yard pass play. However, the extra-point kick was blocked, and Seagraves’ Longoria scooped it up and ran it back all the way for the Eagles’ first points of the evening. This gave them momentum, and they followed with two touchdowns before the half, one on a 54-yard pass and the other on a three-yard run. With the extra points, they now trailed the Plowboys only by eleven points, 27-16, and were back in the game.
However, the Plowboys scored first in the third quarter on another Beal pass to Ortega, a play that covered 38 yards. The extra-point try was no good, but the Plowboys once again had an imposing lead, 33-16. But Seagraves came back with another TD of their own, and as the third quarter ended, they were still in the game, trailing by only ten points, 33-23.
The Plowboy defense held them scoreless for the rest of the way, however, and the last TD of the game was on an 11-yard run by Garcia, making the final score 39-23.
Here is the scoring by quarters:
Plowboys 21 6 6 6 – 39
Seagraves 0 16 7 0 – 23
Francisco Garcia led the Plowboy rushers with 27 carries for 117 yards and 2 TDs. Brayden Beal had a good game passing with 11 completions of 18 attempts and 4 TDs, all of them to Jose Ortega. Ortega led the receivers with 6 receptions for 128 yards, while Clemente Aguayo had 3 catches for 51 yards.
Defensively, Parker Payne had 9 tackles with 2 for losses and one forced fumble. Ortega had 11 tackles, 3 for losses; Austin Willman had 8 tackles, Nick Limones had 5 and an interception, and Aguayo had 5, 2 of them for losses.
The Plowboys will be favored when they play Tahoka in Tahoka Friday evening. The Bulldogs are currently 4-4 on the year and the Plowboys 5-3, but the Plowboys are 3-0 in district while the Bulldogs are 1-2 with big losses to Seagraves and Hamlin, who beat them 63-7 and 60-6 respectively. However, they will be playing on their home field and they do have four victories, so the Plowboys will need to be ready to play.
Kickoff is at 7:00pm.
