George West, playing without senior fullback, defensive end Shannon Taylor, used their thundering herd of running backs to overpower the Natalia Mustangs in Natalia Friday night. The Longhorns rushed for 355 yards on 30 carries and had 435 yards of total offense for the night. Fullback Lucas Yocum led the way with 140 yards on five carries which included an 87 yard touchdown gallop. Albert Gamez followed with 108 yards on eight carries and a 53 yard touchdown run. Cayleb Holt had 55 yards on eight carries with a 27 yard touchdown run. Quarterback Seth Pipkin had 52 yards rushing on nine carries, completed five passes for 80 yards and two touchdowns. The first touchdown pass was an eleven yard pass to Zane Schorp; the second touchdown pass was 22 yard pass to Clayton Whitley. Ty Jimmerson was successful on three out of four points after touchdown kicks. The Longhorns were successful on two point conversion passes to Whitley twice. The Longhorn Offense lost two fumbles and had one pass intercepted. The offensive line again had an outstanding night opening the way for the thundering herd of Longhorn backs.

The lone Natalia score came late in the fourth quarter on the Longhorn second team defense. The Big Blue Wrecking Crew Defense allowed Natalia two long pass completions on their first series and Natalia’s attempted field goal was no good. Thereafter, the Longhorns harassed the Mustang passing attack and held Natalia’s offense to 111 yards on 37 attempts. Leading the way for the defense was Yocum who moved back to his inside linebacker position and had 16 tackles and one quarterback sack. Clayton Whitley had nine tackles and put pressure on Natalia’s passing game with his linebacker blitzes. Defensive linemen Aaron McCabe, Thaddeus Pierce, Joseph Moore and Enrique Nieto had outstanding good nights containing the rush and pressuring the quarterback. Outside linebackers Michael Fuentes, Riley Rocha, Bret Epperson, and Ronnie Piaz had their usual steady defensive efforts. Defensive Backs Joseph Lopez, Seth Pipkin and Zane Schorp each had an interception. Dylan Mokrey had a forced fumble and fumble recovery.

Special teams had a good night for the Longhorns. Zane Schorp had two punts for 42 and 46 yards respectively. Ty Jimmerson’s kickoffs and great coverage from the kicking team penned the Mustangs in their own territory all night.

The Longhorns host the Jourdanton Indians Friday night, Oct. 16 at Longhorn Field in a Homecoming contest. As always, the Longhorn fans are needed to cheer the Big Blue Wrecking Crew to victory.

District 31AA Scores for Week 6: Jourdanton 47 – Freer 20; Three Rivers 17 – Dilley 10; George West 43 – Natalia 7.

This week’s games: Cotulla at Three Rivers, Dilley at Freer, Jourdanton at George West.
