Eagles run away from MadVille 'D'

Posted

Madisonville was unable to sustain Salado’s consistent and methodical offensive attack in Friday’s 43-15 loss to the Eagles, their final road contest of the season.

“When we had the ball in the first half, we moved it down the field and played keep away from them,” said Madisonville head coach Russell Urbantke. “They are going to limit your possessions, so you have to make the most of yours. I thought we did a really good job of that in the first half.”

After falling behind 6-0, Salado quarterback Hutton Haire led a five-minute scoring drive that he capped off with a 22-yard rushing touchdown. Tyrese Brown would then find the end zone for Madisonville’s second score, which resulted in a quick Salado answer.

Hunter Turk got away from the Mustang defense and went 40 yards to give the Eagles a 15-12 advantage after a successful two-point conversion attempt. They would not surrender the lead again. The Mustangs were able to tie the game with a Juan Polanco field goal late in the first half, but it was their final score of the night.

Salado scored in all four quarters of the game on Friday, including 15 points in the second quarter and 14 in the fourth.

Jace Snook led Madisonville’s defense with 11 tackles in the loss. He was followed by Ki’Vycia Purvis with eight, Brown with seven, Da’Voszia Mock with six and Austin Longoria with five.

With one game remaining in the 2019 season, Snook leads all Madisonville tacklers by far 91 (10.1 per game), eight of which have come behind the line of scrimmage.

The next Madisonville defenders on the list are Brown (56), Andres Lopez (49), Asa Surface (46) and Mock (37). Micheil Harrell and Michael DeBoisblanc have each compiled 30 tackles each.

The Mustangs have forced 17 turnovers on the defensive side of the ball to this point, 14 of which were recovered fumbles. Mock leads the team in forced fumbles with five and is followed by Brown and Snook with two apiece. Brown and Snook have each recovered four fumbles as well.

Brown is responsible for two of the defense’s interceptions on the year. The other was recorded by Roderick Holiday.

Madisonville’s next and final challenge will come on senior night at Mustang Stadium on Friday when they take on Lorena.

“We have to play two halves, we just played one half of good football this week” said Urbantke. “We are going to go at it hard and send these seniors out with a bang. With all of the hard work and commitment they have given to our program over their time, we want to send them out with a ‘W’.”

Lorena will be led by quarterback Bradley Lina and his two offensive weapons, receivers Ty Moore and A.J. Bell.

“(Moore) is their biggest target,” said Urbantke. “They spread you out and try to get it to him in space. They have two really good receivers. They do not run the ball a lot unless it is with the quarterback.”

Lorena defeated Madisonville 40-10 in last year’s matchup.
