PERMIAN PANTHERS TEAR UP T-BIRDS IN EL PASO
SEPTEMBER 18th- The MOJO Machine took care of business on Friday, crushing the Coronado T-Birds 63-15 in El Paso.
The Panthers continued to display domination on both sides of the ball. After the defense forced a Coronado punt on the opening possession, the offense wasted little time getting on the scoreboard. Permian's first possession began with a pitchout from Trey Potter to Kobe Ronbinson. But instead of running the sweep K-Rob pulled up to pass, hitting Brother Miller downfield for a 51 yard touchdown. After another quick three-and-out from the MOJO defense Robinson made his presence known again, hauling in a perfect pass from Potter and streaking 71 yards to pay dirt. Dakoda Delao's PAT made the score 14-0 MOJO just six minutes into the game. Brandon Bailey made it 21-0 Permian three minutes later, capping a six-play drive with a three yard touchdown run.
The MOJO defense got on the board to begin the second quarter. Playing the option, Jax Welch was in perfect position to intercept an errant Thunderbird pitch and return it 25 yards for the score. Coronado mounted a good drive on their next possession, but the defense rose up again when Tommy Taylor intercepted a pass to end the scoring threat. The Panthers capitilized on the turnover with a 90 yard scoring drive, capped by Bailey's 41 yard touchdown scamper. The first half onslaught ended with 20 yard touchdown run by Robinson. The Panthers went into the halftime break on top 42-0.
The second half looked much like the first. The Panthers increased their lead to 49 points when Potter connected with Miller from 30 yards out for their second scoring hookup of the game. With the game in hand and Permian substituting liberally the T-Birds finally broke the shutout in the fourth quarter, scoring on a 10 yard run. MOJO was not through scoring however, as Miller got his third touchdown of the evening one play later. Lined up at quarterback Miller took the ball around the right side, shaking a tackle before racing 70 yards up the far sideline. The extra point made the score 56-7 with a little over six minutes remaining. On the next Permian possession Tyler Marquez got his first score of the year on a quarterback keeper from six yards out. The Thunderbirds would add another touchdown with under a minute left for the final 63-15 score.
Kobe Robinson had an MVP-worthy performance with touchdowns rushing, receiving and passing. Brandon Bailey led all rushers with 124 yards and two touchdowns. Brother Miller was the leading receiver with 103 yards and two scores. Miller also had a 71 yard touchdown run. Trey Potter had another efficient day, throwing for 161 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Jax Welch scored on an intercepted pitch. Tommy Taylor and Jordan McCoy also had interceptions for MOJO. The win gives Permian a 4-0 record.
MOJO MACHINE MASHES LUBBOCK CORONADO MUSTANGS
PERMIAN PANTHERS VS MIDLAND LEE REBELS
SEPTEMBER 24th- The Permian Panthers ended their non-district slate with a perfect record, knocking off the Lubbock Coronado Mustangs 38-6 on Thursday.
Unlike the first four games where the Panthers displayed their big play capability, Permian took more of a ball control approach vs the Mustangs. MOJO's opening drive drained more than four minutes off of the clock, capped by a Kobe Robinson 36 yard touchdown run. The drive consisted of seven plays that covered 80 yards. After the defense forced the Mustangs into a three-and-out, the Panthers were back on the offensive. The offense utilized 11 running plays on its second possession before the drive stalled. Dakoda Delao was good on a 42-yard field goal to put MOJO up 10-0 at the end of one.-6 on Thursday.
Brandon Bailey was the workhorse in the second quarter, and scored his first of two touchdowns midway through from seven yards out. The defense then forced another three-and-out, and the Panthers offense went back to work. Trey Potter's touchdown pass to Jack Fawcett from 19 yards out finished off a scoring drive that covered 48 yards in six plays. MOJO went into the break on top 24-0.
The second half opened with Coronado getting their only score of the game on the first play from scrimmage. Coronado runningback Jeffrey McCutcheon burst through the line for a 66-yard touchdown run to make the score 24-6. The Mustang defense then stopped the Panthers for the first time all night on the ensuing Panthers possession. MOJO regained momentum two plays later, when Josh Nguyen grabbed the first of two interceptions in the game. Six plays later, Potter ran it in from eight yards out to extend the lead to 31-6. It only took four plays before Nguyen had his second interception of the night, thwarting the Mustangs scoring attempt as the third quarter ended.
The Panthers committed their lone miscue in the fourth quarter on a fumble near midfield. Coronado recovered the fumble, but gave it back three plays later when Des Smith intercepted a long Mustang pass. From there Brother Miller- who had taken over for Potter under center- led a seven play, 94 yard scoring drive to seal the win. Scrambling to his right after finding his primary receiver Fawcett covered up, Miller dumped the ball off to Bailey. The senior running back took over from there, bowling over two defenders on his way to a beautiful 36 yard touchdown. The Mustangs had one final possession but the drive went nowhere. Final score 38-6 MOJO.
Bailey finished the night with 204 yards on 34 carries, and added two receptions for 47 yards. Potter rushed for 73 yards on 17 carries and a score, while completing seven out of eight passes for another 79 yards. Jack Fawcett had four receptions for 38 yards and a score. On defense, Josh Nguyen added to his season interception total with two picks. Des Smith grabbed the other interception for MOJO. Kicker Dakoda Delao stayed a perfect 40-for-40 on PATs, and hit his first field goal of the year.
NEXT UP- Permian will use the bye week to prepare for the district run that begins on October 9th vs the Midland Lee Rebels. Kickoff is set for 7:30pm Friday, October 9th at Ratliff Stadium.
