Finally, a win at Massey Stadium!
Pilot Point leaves tonight with its second win of the season, first at home, to improve to 2-3 entering its bye week.
Jeshua Price continued to dominate the offensive side of the ball, running in the final touchdown from 70 yards out on the first play of a drive late in the fourth quarter.
The Bearcats’ defense almost knocked out Colton Lyon, who had a hard time getting up after a tackle and limped off the field clearly winded. Lyon’s roar couldn’t be silence completely (get it? couldn’t resist), he still came back for a few more runs.
Tonight also marked the lowest point total allowed by the Bearcats’ defense. Interesting note: assistant coach Juan Silva is now acting as defensive coordinator instead of Jeff Smiley, who came to the Cats from Callisburg during the offseason. Smiley is still on staff. More details to come as Silva and Feldt would not completely address the changes, but at least acknowledged them.
Also good to see the Bearcats shake off the number 35 and breakthrough for nearly 60 points. The Bearcats scored 35 points exactly in its first three games, and then 29 last week against Nolan.
Pilot Point now has two weeks before hosting Sanger to open district as a 3A school. Will be a very, very high octane matchup with Sanger QB Dane Evans leading the 3A metroplex in passing. The No. 2 guy behind Evans? None other than Price, who actually moved to PP from Sanger in the summer of 2009 – I’m already rubbing my hands together in anticipation!
Thanks for following the few updates made tonight from Massey – still have to give a shout out to Tilley @ Golden Chick for his Internet, as hard as it is to catch it up in the press box. Much love to the golden chicken
