PERMIAN PANTHERS AT AMARILLO TASCOSA REBELS
MOJO ROLLS IN THE RUMBLE AT RATLIFF
OCTOBER 12th- The Permian Panthers kicked off the District 2-6A race with a dominating 42-10 victory over the Odessa Bronchos on Friday.
Coming into the game with a 4-1 record hopes were high on the Bronchos side, and early on it looked like it would be a ballgame. MOJO scored on the second play of the game, with Ed Williams busting up the middle and racing to the endzone from 85 yards out. Carson Roberts' PAT gave the Panthers a 7-0 lead. The Bronchos would not be outdone however, taking the ensuing kickoff all the way back to tie the game at 7-7 with just 1:03 off the clock.
The Panthers responded with an eight-play, 75 yard scoring drive highlighted by a nice 33 yard pass from Peyton Powell to Justin Hammond. The duo connected again for the touchdown, with Hammond going up between two defenders to haul in the pass from Powell. On the ensuing possession OHS would look to answer with a drive that got them down to the Permian one yard line. But MOJO put up a tremendous goal line stand, forcing the Bronchos to settle for a field goal. The first quarter ended with the Panthers on top 14-10.
MOJO took over the game in the second quarter. After completing a 35 yard pass to Kaden Horrell, Powell scored on a nifty 19 yard run right up the middle of the Bronchos defense. The senior signal caller would get into the endzone again on the next Permian possession, capping an eight-play, 75 yard drive with a seven yard touchdown run. Permian held a 28-10 advantage.
The Black Attack defense rose up once again on the ensuing OHS possession. With the second quarter winding down, the Bronchos chose to go for it on 4th down and two yards to go. But the play was stopped short of the marker, and MOJO took over with under a minute to go. It would only take one play for the Panthers to capitalize. Mason Sellers took a reverse pitch from Powell, then turned and threw to a wide-open Hammond who was behind the OHS defense. Roberts converted on his fifth PAT of the evening, and the Panthers went into the break with a 35-10 lead.
The second half was slowed down by an injury to a Bronchos player. As play resumed after a 20 minute delay, the Panthers got into the endzone again with an 18 yard touchdown run by Powell. That would be the final touchdown of the evening, with Permian substituting liberally in the fourth quarter. The game ended with MOJO on top 42-10.
Ed Williams led all rushers with 185 yards and a score on 16 carries. Peyton Powell added 85 yards and three touchdowns on the ground. Through the air Powell completed eight passes for 166 yards and a touchdown. Mason Sellers completed one pass for 34 yards and a touchdown. Justin Hammond led all receivers with 141 yards and two scores. The win gives MOJO a 1-0 district record (4-2 overall).

PERMIAN EARNS LOPSIDED WIN VS LOS FRESNOS
SEPTEMBER 28th- The Permian Panthers laid a licking on the Los Fresnos Falcons on Friday, cruising to a 56-0 victory at Ratliff Stadium.
MOJO took the opening kick and marched right down the field, with consecutive long runs by Peyton Powell pushing the ball deep into Los Fresnos territory. But a fumble by Ed Williams after a hard hit would give the Falcons a reprieve. Their excitement didn't last long however, as the MOJO defense held the Falcons to no yards on three consecutive plays to force a punt. Permian promptly took the ball and marched 60 yards in eight plays, capping the drive with a 21 yard touchdown pass from Powell to Justin Hammond. Carson Roberts' PAT made it 7-0 Panthers as the first quarter came to an end.
The defense came up with a big play to begin the second period, with CB Rakeeb Adeyemi grabbing his first interception of the year. Long runs from Williams and Hammond set up a three yard touchdown scramble by Powell to give the Panthers a 14-0 lead. After the MOJO defense forced another three-and-out by Los Fresnos, Powell would show his passing prowess with completions to Hammond and Kaden Horrell. Williams capped the drive with a five yard touchdown run. MOJO got another quick score after an 11 yard punt on the Falcons' next possession, with Mason Sellers hauling in a 35 yard pass from Powell. The Panthers went into the break with a 28-0 lead.
The second half looked a lot like the first. The Panthers put together a nine play, 77 yard scoring drive capped by Williams' second touchdown of the night on a three yard run. Williams got his third score on the next MOJO drive, bursting up the middle untouched from 17 yards out. Meanwhile the Black Attack continued their domination, with Chase Stell picking off a Falcons pass and returning it to the five yard line. Adam Martinez got his first touchdown of the year two plays later, taking a pitch from Christian Rodriguez and racing around the right end to paydirt for a 49-0 Permian lead. Stell outdid himself on the ensuing Los Fresnos possession, grabbing a tipped pass and taking it back all the way to the house. The teams traded possessions in the fourth quarter with no further scoring. The game would end with MOJO on top 56-0 over the Falcons.
Ed Williams led all rushers with 137 yards and three touchdowns. Peyton Powell added 95 yards and a touchdown on 12 attempts. Through the air, Powell was 11-14 for 170 yards and two touchdowns. Mason Sellers caught three passes for 70 yards and a touchdown, with Hammond grabbing five passes for 58 yards and a score.
