SAN ANGELO- The Lubbock Monterey Plainsmen (3-1, 2-1) used a time consuming, grind it out offense and a stellar defense to shut down the San Angelo Central Bobcats (0-4, 0-3) 31-6 on Saturday afternoon at San Angelo Stadium. Monterey RB Stormy Moore led the way with 99 rushing yards and 45 yards receiving and a touchdown.
Monterey came out swinging right off the bat as kicker Trey Cdebaca executed a perfect onside kick and he even managed to recover the ball, as the Bobcats were caught completely off guard. However, the Plainsmen would turn the ball over as QB Troy Nicholson was blindsided by DE Andy Dickson and CHS DB Chuy Obregon would pounce on the loose ball.
San Angelo Central would quickly capitalize on the turnover as QB Clayton Kafer hooked up with Marc Campos for a 28 yard touchdown pass and Central led 6-0 as the PAT was blocked. The Plainsmen would have a quick answer for the Central early strike as Tyler Pearson and Moore hooked up for a 40 yard touchdown pass to make it 7-6 MHS as the PAT was true.
After forcing a Bobcats punt, the Plainsmen went on the march early in the second quarter with a time consuming drive in which they converted two fourth downs. Erik Arias capped the drive with a four yard touchdown run to put the Plainsmen up 14-6. Central went on a nice march late in the quarter but instead of attempting a long field goal, the Bobcats tried a little trickery and a fake field goal was snuffed out by the Plainsment and at the half Monterey led 14-6.
Monterey completey dominated the second half tacking on 17 more points as Ross Brock caught a 19 yard touchdown pass from Nicholson to make it 21-6. Cdebaca added a 27 yard field goal and Arias had another touchdown run late for the final tally of 31-6. For the Monterey defense DT Joe Wilborn who is a Baylor commit was stellar and DB Hunter Dewbre picked off two passes to lead the way. For Central RB Deon Rose was solid rushing for 21 yards on 5 carries and he chipped in 42 receiving yards and DB Solomon Sutton was also outstanding.
