During the first quarter of the game, Jacob Robles set off the first Friday Night Lights crowd cheer of the year, when he ran 50 yards and allowed Luis Flores to score the first varsity touchdown of the night. The football team showed a solid defense, forcing Workman to punt multiple times.

The second quarter began with the Braves punting the ball, leading to Workman fumbling the ball and Miguel Castaneda recovering. This put the Braves in position so Robles could throw a 40 yard touchdown pass to Christopher Vargas, widening the score gap.

As the final quarter of the game closed, Nicholas Valenzuela’s fumble recoveries gave the Braves’ offense the opportunity to put two late touchdowns on the board.

When asked what he thought of the varsity football team’s first performance of the league season, wide receiver, Jonathan Frias, said, “This game showed us that we still have a lot to work on.”

Overall, the Braves played an impressive early season game and were able to defeat their first official opponents of the year.

Just share it.
