PANTHERS ROUT LEE REBELS AT RATLIFF
NOVEMBER 4th- The Panthers closed out the regular season on a high note with a 55-28 victory over the Midland Lee Rebels.
MOJO sent a message on the first play of the game when Steve Steen threw a quick pass to Toddrick Robinson streaking up the seam for a 71 yard touchdown. With just 12 seconds off the clock, Permian had a 7-0 lead. The offense continued to shine throughout the first half. Steen led the Panthers on a six play, 69 yard drive capped by Justin Hammond's 13 yard run. Senior Kade Davis- making his first start of the season- supplied the spark with a 32 yard run to set up the score. Davis came through again on the next MOJO possession, ripping off two quick runs for 21 yards to get the Panthers into Lee territory. Robinson got his second score of the game on the next play, racing around the corner on an option pitch and outrunning the Rebel defenders for a 42 yard touchdown.
With a 21-0 lead midway through the second quarter, it looked like Permian was going to cruise to a victory. But Midland Lee would not go quietly. The Rebels put together an 85 yard drive capped by a seven yard touchdown run. The PAT was wide left, but the Rebs were on the scoreboard at 21-6. On the ensuing kickoff the Permian receiver mishandled the ball, and Lee recovered. From there it only took four plays for Lee to get into the endzone. The Panthers went into the break with a 21-13 lead.
Lee took the second half kick and put together a seven play, 66 yard scoring drive. Their two point conversion try was good, and for the first time since the opening kickoff the game was tied. At that point it appeared that the Rebels had all the momentum, but Permian grabbed it right back on their next possession. Steen ran the ball for nine yards on the first play of the drive. Robinson then struck again on second down and one, taking the pitch and blasting up the home sideline on a 72 yard touchdown run. Jacob James' PAT put the Panthers back on top 28-21. Davis set the Panthers up again on the next possession, ripping off a 38 yard run down to the Lee 24 yard line. Steen pushed the ball across two plays later to give the Panthers a 35-21 lead.
Midland Lee responded with a 68 yard scoring drive to get back to within one touchdown as the third quarter ended. It would be as close as the Rebels would get however, as MOJO exploded for 21 fourth quarter points to put the game away. Hunter Hawkins did the damage on the first drive with 58 total yards capped by a 31 yard touchdown reception. Steen got his second touchdown of the game on the next drive to give the Panthers a 49-28 lead with five minutes remaining. After the Rebels last ditch effort to find the endzone failed, Aaron Vasquez got his first varsity touchdown on the last play of the season. With the game clock winding down Vasquez bulled his way into the endzone from eight yards out. The PAT was not attempted, and the game ended with the final score Permian 55, Midland Lee 28.
Kade Davis led all rushers with 152 yards on 13 carries. Toddrick Robinson added 109 yards and two touchdowns on three carries to go along with his 71 yard touchdown reception. Steve Steen's 103 rushing yards set a new Permian record for quarterbacks, giving him 862 for the season. Steen also passed for 110 yards and two touchdowns. The win gives the Panthers a 6-4 record for the season.
