SHORT-HANDED PANTHERS FALL IN ABILENE
OCTOBER 17th- The Permian Panthers fell to 1-1 in District 3-6A (5-2 overall) after their 30-13 loss to the Abilene Eagles on Friday.
MOJO traveled to Abilene short handed, as starting running back Brandon Bailey and both backups- Marquiest Allen and Bryan Rhea- were serving suspensions for unexcused absences from practice. With no running game to speak of the Panthers had a hard time sustaining drives most of the night. Meanwhile the Eagles were able to jump out to a 20-0 lead midway through the second quarter. Permian finally got on the board with a touchdown pass from Heath Wood to Tyson Banks. The PAT was blocked, and the Panthers went into the break down 20-6.
The second half transpired much as the first half had. Abilene increased their lead to 27-6 as the third quarter ended, then added a 28 yard field goal to their total midway through the fourth. The Panthers got back into the endzone with under a minute to play, with Wood connecting with Jack Fawcett from 13 yards out. Final score 30-13 Abilene.
Wood ended the night with 223 yards and two touchdowns passing. Freshman Javorian Miller- getting the first receptions of his young career- was the leading receiver with seven catches for 78 yards. Kobe Robinson played as the primary running back and managed 25 yards on eight carries. Defensively, Des Smith and Jordan McCoy had interceptions.
NEXT UP- Permian hosts Midland High (1-1, 4-3) October 24th at Ratliff Stadium. Kickoff is set for 7:30pm. The Junior Varsity teams will travel to Midland to play the Bulldogs JV Thursday, October 23rd at 5:00pm and 7:00pm. Permian's Freshmen will host their Midland Bulldog counterparts on Thursday at Wilkins Field.
PANTHERS PREVAIL OVER PURPLE DAWGS 15-14
OCTOBER 24TH- The Permian Panthers improved to 2-1 in District 3-6A (6-2 overall) with a hard-fought 15-14 victory over Midland High.
Early on it appeared the Panthers would have their way with the visiting Bulldogs, as LB Cody Young grabbed a Midland fumble on the opening possession. The Panthers couldn't punch it in however, and settled for a 30 yard field goal from Dakoda Delao. The teams traded punts for the remainder of the first quarter and into the second, with MOJO pinning Midland on their own one foot line. From there the Bulldogs took advantage of several questionable calls from the officiating crew to get on the board with an 18 yard shovel pass. The half ended with MOJO on the wrong end of a 7-3 score.
The second half found the Panthers struggling on offense. Meanwhile, Midland increased their lead to 14-3 with a nine play, 65 yard touchdown drive. The Panthers finally found a spark on offense, with Heath Wood hitting Kobe Robinson for 18 yards as the third quarter ended. Two plays later Wood dealt the ball to Taylor Thompson on a tunnel screen. The play worked to perfection, with Thompson taking it to the house from 45 yards. The two point try failed, but MOJO was back in the game at 14-9. After the defense forced a three and out the Panthers struck again, with Wood connecting with Robinson on a 55 yard catch-and-run for the score. MOJO had a 15-14 lead and momentum on their side. The Bulldogs got the ball back with a chance to regain the lead but the Black Attack defense would have none of it, forcing another three and out. From there the Panthers were able to keep the ball and run out the clock. MOJO wins 15-14.
Heath Wood ended the game with 180 yards passing to go along with 44 yards on the ground. Brandon Bailey led all rushers with 96 yards on 15 carries. Kobe Robinson led the Panthers with 83 receiving yards and a touchdown, with Taylor Thompson contributing 52 yards and a score. On defense, Cody Young and Tommy Taylor grabbed fumbles.
NEXT UP- The Rumble at Ratliff- Permian Panthers vs Odessa Bronchos Friday, October 31st at Ratliff Stadium. MOJO will be the designated visiting team.
