PERMIAN SHOWS PROMISE IN SEASON PREVIEW
MOJO MASHES MCALLEN IN SEASON OPENER
AUGUST 22nd- MOJO had a very successful scrimmage with Frenship on Friday. The Varsity won the live half of the scrimmage by a score of 24-7.
The scrimmage began with a controlled series of plays for both teams. The number one offense hit paydirt with a nice drive that culminated with a touchdown toss from Heath Wood to Kobe Robinson. The second team offense had some nice plays but failed to score in the controlled segment.
Defensively the Panthers played lights out, showing an improved fight and intensity that was lacking last season. Tackling was crisp, and the hits were hard. Taran Butler ended one Frenship drive with a leaping interception at midfield.
During the live half, the Panthers jumped out to a 17-0 lead behind the running of Brandon Bailey and Dexter Neboh. Bailey got things started with a 61 yard scoring burst through the middle of the Frenship defense. Neboh hit paydirt from 42 yards out on an option pitch from Wood. Dakoda Deleo converted a 24 yard field goal in between. Bailey made the final score of the night, taking a swing pass from Wood into the endzone. Bailey touched the ball on all eight plays of the drive.
Brandon Bailey ended the evening with 189 total yards and two touchdowns. Heath Wood was 13-of-17 for 85 yards. Backup Trey Potter was 6-of-8 for 38 yards.
