Hill Country routs Prairie Lea, 46-0
PRAIRIE LEA – San Marcos Hill Country running back Connor West was nearly unstoppable at Prairie Lea Friday night, leading the Rams to a 46-0 victory over the Indians in a game called due to the scoring onslaught by the visitors.
In 6-man football, once a team goes up by 46 in the first half, the game is called.
“That kid (West) is the real deal,” Prairie Lea Head Coach Steven Brown said.
Hill Country onside-kicks every time, and Browns said the game got away from his team early after the Rams recovered the first and third onside kicks.
“We just never really got anything going,” Brown said.
Hill Country improved to 2-0 after opening the season with an 82-42 win over Bellview’s Faith Academy.
Prairie lea dropped to 1-2.
Brown said Joe Zapata was his team’s defensive standout, while Jimmy Soberanes had the best runs of the night on offense.
The Benavides Eagles visit Prairie Lea Friday in a 7:30 p.m. kickoff. Prairie Lea will welcome Buckholts to town Sept. 22 for the Indians’ homecoming game.
Both of those games should be evenly matched.
