The defending bi-district finalist C.C. Winn Mavericks varsity football team under the direction of sixth year head football coach Eric Villasenor hit the road on Friday, August 31, 2018 to the Spinach Capital of the World Crystal City, Texas to kickoff their 2018 Texas High School football season with a 7:30 PM non-district gridiron encounter against the Crystal City Javelinas. The Mavericks entered this season with their sights focused on capturing the District 14-5A football championship and earning a berth into the post season for the third consecutive year. The Mavericks diversified offense and the swarming hard hitting defense had a near flawless performance holding the Javelinas to under 100 total yards of offense shutting the Javelinas out to take an impressive 21 to 0 victory.

The mighty Mavericks supported by a fairly large Mavericks Nation in attendance after a scoreless feeling out opening quarter got their potent offense clicking in the second quarter utilizing their short passing game scheme to compliment their patented powerful running game with young standout quarterback Ethan Johnston and running backs Marc Cardenas and Fernando Zapata taking turns in toting the pigskin up and down the field all game long.

The Mavericks unsung heroes the massive offensive line comprised by Daniel Ruiz, Adrian Munoz, Juan Guerra, Cesar Valdez and Jaime Rodriguez dominated the line of scrimmage against the Javelimas defensive line throughout the entire game. With 6:00 left before halftime the Mavericks capped off a long drive with a four-yard keeper to pay dirt by quarterback Ethan Johnston with placekicker Ernesto Fuentes tacking on the point after to give the Mavericks a 7 to 0 lead at halftime.

During the halftime break head coach Eric Villasenor along with his offensive and defensive coordinators made minimal adjustments but as usual the ever-wise young head coach Eric Villasenor who always has some tricks and wrinkles up his sleeve implemented a few plays that they would use in the second half.

In the third quarter the Mavericks offense continued their well-balanced attack against the Javelinas with their short passing game with quarterback Ethan Johnston connecting with wide receivers Jared Roiz who led the Mavericks in receptions with five receptions for 56 yards as well as wide receivers Jose Blanco, Ernesto Vasquez and running back Marc Cardenas out of the backfield to pickup key first downs to sustain several drives. With less than 4:00 minutes left in the third period quarterback Ethan Johnston took full advantage of the excellent blocking of the Mavericks offensive line to bust loose on a sensational 52-yard run deep inside the Javelinas 10-yard line. With 3:43 showing on the clock Ethan Johnston culminated the scoring drive with a six-yard scamper into the end zone. Ernesto Fuentes split the uprights with the point after to extend the Mavericks lead to 14 to 0.

The fourth and final quarter of this game had the Mavericks continue to dominate the line of scrimmage matriculating up and down the field gaining positive yardage on nearly every single play called by offensive coordinator Heriberto Roiz which chewed up the majority of the time on the clock to keep the Javelinas offense on the sidelines. With 5:49 left in the game the Mavericks offense capped off another impressive long drive with quarterback Ethan Johnston plunging into the end zone from two yards out. Ernesto Fuentes added the point after conversion to close out the scoring for the night giving the Mavericks a comfortable 21 to 0 lead over the Crystal City Javelinas. Ethan Johnston finished the game with a team and game high 150 rushing yards rushing on 20 carries for a hefty 7.5 yards per carry with 3 TD runs.

But the highlight of the game was the truly magnificent performance turned in by the famed Mavericks defensive unit spearheaded by their co-defensive coordinators Rene Ramirez and Saul Salas as they simply suffocated the Javelinas offense led by their standout running back David Patino. The patented hard hitting and quick pursuing Mavericks defense comprised by the relentless pressure from their stellar “Fab-Four” defensive linemen Alejandro Ontiveros, Alexis Ontiveros, Jose Hinojosa and Ricardo Morales along with their pair of solid line backers Patricio Hernandez who recorded a whopping team and game high 10 solo tackles in this game and Alex Chris Garcia who inflicted some punishing tackles on the Javelinas ball carriers.

The defensive “Ministers of the Air” secondary unit of German Velasquez, Gilberto Vasquez, Domingo Duran, Azael Rodriguez, and Hector Nunez provided excellent run support and did not allow the Javelinas to complete one single pass all game long and forced the Javelinas to punt the ball on 7 out of their 8 offensive possessions in this game. The stingy Mavericks defense allowed only a phenomenal and mind boggling 77 yards of total offense enabling the mighty Mavericks to come away with their first victory of the season by the final score of 21 to 0 over the stunned Crystal City Javelinas much to the delight of the Mavericks Nation in attendance.

This coming Friday, September 7, 2018, the Mavericks return home to host the Uvalde Coyotes in a 7:30 PM non-district gridiron encounter at the Eagle Pass ISD Student Activity Center Cozel Foster-Veterans Memorial Stadium. This season home opener is designated as the Mavericks Parent’s Night with the Mavericks paying tribute to their respective parents during pre-game festivities. Eagle Pass Sports Central wishes the mighty C.C. Winn Mavericks the very best of luck against the Uvalde Coyotes and would like to invite the Mavericks Nation as well as the entire Community of Eagle Pass Texas to come out to the stadium this upcoming Friday night and support the C.C. Winn Mavericks. GO MAVERICKS! BEAT THE COYOTES!

Arriba los Mavericks!
