PANTHERS ROAST THE CORONADO THUNDERBIRDS
NOVEMBER 17th- The Permian Panthers advanced to the second round of the Class 6A Division I playoffs with their 50-17 victory over the El Paso Coronado Thunderbirds.

Despite being big underdogs coming into the game, the visiting T-Birds made it interesting early. After stopping the Panthers on their opening possession, Coronado would get on the board first with a long touchdown pass after a quarterback scramble. The first quarter ended with the T-Birds leading 7-0.

Permian answered in the second quarter with a 12 play, 75 yard drive. Ed Williams got the touchdown from five yards out to tie the game at 7-7. Coronado would answer with a long drive before the MOJO defense stiffened at the 18 yard line. The T-Birds settled for a field goal to go up 10-7. 

After a 41 yard kickoff return by Brother Miller, Permian retook the lead on a 12 play, 59 yard scoring drive. Williams got his second score of the game from three yards out. The Carson Roberts PAT was good, and the Panthers went into the break on top 14-10.

The second half was all MOJO. After forcing Coronado to punt on their opening possession of the third quarter, Permian took control of the game in two plays. Justin Hammond busted loose for a 35 yard gain, then Williams scored his third touchdown of the game with a 33 yard touchdown run. Williams would get back in the endzone even faster on the next Permian possession. The junior runningback busted up the middle for 65 yards on first down, then finished the drive with a six yard touchdown run. The Roberts PAT made the score 28-10 Permian midway through the third quarter.

Coronado went on a 70 yard scoring drive on their next possession, closing the gap to 28-17. That was as close as they would get however, as MOJO responded with a pair of field goals to go up 34-17 early in the fourth quarter. 

From there MOJO's Black Attack defense took over. Tanner Adams sacked the Coronado quarterback in the endzone for a safety to make the score 36-17. The defense posted another score when Preston Ellison stepped in front of a T-Bird pass and returned it 35 yards for the score. Roberts' PAT gave MOJO a 43-17 advantage with 8:18 remaining.

With the game in hand Permian substituted liberally, but with similar results. Mark Samaniego would get the Panthers into scoring position with two runs for 40 yards. Kaden Horrell finished the drive with a three yard touchdown run. The game ended with the final score MOJO 50, Coronado 17.

Ed Williams had a career night with 290 yards and four touchdowns on 24 carries. Steve Steen rushed for 76 yards, and Mark Samaniego added 45 yards. Steen threw for 30 yards on three completions. Defensively, Preston Ellison and Rakeeb Adeyemi had interceptions. Tanner Adams forced a safety. The win gives MOJO a 9-1 record on the season.
