Texans place first, Lady Texans place second at Western Texas College Open on Saturday


Andrew Bosquez running the pace for South Plains College. He finished second at Snyder.

SNYDER—The South Plains College men’s cross country team picked up their second consecutive first-place finish on Saturday at the Western Texas College Open.

The Texans concluded the men’s 8k with an average team time of 27:34, sweeping the top four spots and placing six runners inside the top 10. All-American Felix Kosgei placed first overall with a mark of 26:24, while Andrew Bosquez (27:25), Filmon Beyene (27:34) and Benjamin Rono (27:48) rounded out the top four positions.

“I thought we ran really well,” South Plains head coach Erik Vance said. “The guys went out there and didn’t quite get a perfect score but were pretty close and really competed well. Felix competed well and definitely showed he was the class of the field today.

“We can’t compare this course to very many that we run on, but when we compare it to what we ran last year we ran significantly faster this year. I think across the board we ran much better than what we did last year, and it challenged us but I thought we did very well.”

The Lady Texans used an average team time of 21:52.6 in the women’s 5k and placed four Lady Texans finished inside the top five to earn a second-place finish. New Mexico Junior College placed first in the women’s division with a final average team time of 21:52.2.

Seselia Dala led the Lady Texans with a time of 20:39 to place third overall. Leslie Romero and Poro Gahekave finished fourth and fifth for South Plains with their times of 20:49 and 21:05, respectively. Caitlyn Mercer earned a 10th place finish with a time of 22:53, while Agnes Abrocquah placed 13th with a mark of 23:57.

“I thought we did a great job of closing some of our gaps down between runners,” Vance said. “They really went out and really team ran and kept those gaps a lot closer than the previous week. One person we saw really run well on the women’s side was Caitlyn Mercer. She ran close to a minute better than what she ran on the same course last year, so that was really nice to see.”

South Plains will be back on the course next weekend when they travel to Las Vegas, New Mexico for the New Mexico Highlands Open on Saturday, September 23.

Roughnecks Defense Solid, Sundown Moves to Three-and-Oh

SundownGeneralThe Sundown Roughneck defense was dominating on Friday night as the Roughnecks captured three interceptions and held Seagraves to just a field goal in the 27-to-three Roughneck win. The win moves Sundown to three-and-oh and Seagraves to two-and-one.

The Roughnecks started their first possession at their own 37 and moved quickly down the field 63 yards to score all the points they would need. Sundown was on the board on a 15 yard touchdhown pass from Christian Huey to Isaac Hernandez taking a seven-to-nothing lead early.

Sundowns Zach Smith, who had a big game, took an interception on the Eagles first possession and ran it back to the Eagle 23.

That would set up Rock Thoms on a four yard touchdown run putting the Roughnecks up 14-to-nothing.

The second quarter a very nice 80 yard drive that nearly ended in a disaster. Zach Smith would jump on a Christian Huey fumble in the end zone and pushed Sundown in front 20-to-nothing.

Seagraves would get their only points off of a 34 yd field goal late in the half making it a 20-to-three for Sundown at the break.

Sundown scored again in the second half when Christian Huey hit Zach Smith with a 13 yd touchdown pass.

It was more then enough as Sundown cruised in for the 27-to-three win and move to three-and-oh on the year.

The Sundown defense continues to mature and improve and many times totally dominated the Eagle offense. Seagraves had 13 possessions ending in three interceptions, four punts, three turnovers on downs, one field goal and two possessions ending on the clock.

Seagraves dropped to two-and-one on the year.

Sundown, now ranked #16 in the state by MaxPrep, will be on the road on Friday night as they head to Farwell to take on the two-and-one Steers.

Catch the Sundown Roughnecks Friday night with Harley “The Hammer” Chambliss and Jacob Beadles with pregame at 7:15pm and kickoff at 7:30pm on!

Turnovers and A Wild Fourth Quarter, Levelland Falls to Andrews 47-to-31

image11It was all defense through the first three quarters that featured seven turnovers, but it was all offense in the fourth quarter as 42 points were scored in the final 12 minutes and 21 seconds. It led to the Levelland Lobos falling to the Andrews Mustangs 47-to-31 and to one-and-two on the year.

It was all defense early.

Andrews would fumble on their own 32 on the first drive of the game and after a Christian Perez recovery, the Lobos would get a 30 yard field goal from Jersson Hernandez putting Levelland in front three-to-nothing with 10:19 left in the front quarter.

Andrews would run just one play on the next drive as Jace Keese would have a pass picked off by Zack Bautista.

Three plays later, Chris Gerber would scamper in from eight yards out and with the PAT, Levelland was in front 10-to-nothing with 8:35 left in the front quarter.

Andrews would find offense on their next drive. Nine plays would cover 69 yards as Brittin Garcia rumbled in from two yards out and with the PAT, Levelland led 10-to-seven with 4:58 to play in the first quarter.

Andrews would tied the game early in the second.

After Levelland would drive inside the Andrews 20 only to give the ball up on downs, Andrews would march across mid field and set Jaden Brown up for a 36 yard field goal and the game was tied at 10-to-10 with 7:51 to play in the half.

Little did anyone know, it was the last time Levelland would see the lead.

After Andrews’ Ty Diaz picked off a Chris Gerber pass, Brittin Garcia would rush in from 31 yards out and with the PAT, Andrews was in front 17-to-10 with 7:51 left in the half.

That would be it for the first half as Levelland ended two drives on a fumble, recovered by Tyler Handly, and a second failed fourth down conversion. Andrews would end two drives on an interception by Issac Anthony and a punt that ended the half.

At halftime, Andrews was in front 17-to-10.

Quarter number three went much the same way.

Andrews would get a 40 yard touchdown run from Casey Buck to move to a 24-to-ten lead but Levelland answered right back on a 60 yard touchdown run from Chris Gerber and narrowed the scored to Andrews 24, Levelland 17 with 4:32 left in the third.

Levelland would get a fourth turnover on the next drive as Devin Lopez collected his first interception of the year. Levelland would fail to cash that in as Chris Gerber was picked by Tyler Luna and Andrews had the ball back with time waning in the third.

With all the defense that had been fired through out the night, those defensive units finally ran out of bullets in the gun.

Andrews would get a nine yard touchdown pass from Jace Keesee. Brittin Garcia would reel in the catch with 21 seconds left in the third and Andrews was in front 31-to-17.

Levelland answered on a 75 yard six play drive that was capped off on a two yard touchdown run from Triston VanZandt. Add the PAT and Levelland narrowed the lead to Andrews 31, Levelland 24 with 9:38 to play.

Andrews went right back to the well on the next drive. Jace Keeseee would toss a second touchdown pass hitting Noah Lujan from 31 yards out and Andrews led 38-to-24 with 7:45 to play.

Then disaster struck the Lobos.

After a short lackluster drive, Levelland would snap the ball over the head of the punter and in to the end zone. The play would net Andrews a safety with 6:41 to play and a 40-to-24 lead.

That would be enough.

Andrews would score again with 3:26 to play as Brittin Garcia rushed for his third touchdown and put Levelland in front 47-to-24.

Levelland would score again as well.

Chris Gerber would connected with Zack Estrada on a 51 yard touchdown pass but that would be the last score of the contest and Andrews took the win at 47-to-31.

Despite seven turnovers in the game, four for Andrews and three for Levelland, the offenses still managed to put up some numbers.

Levelland would get 150 yards rushing from Chris Gerber on 16 carries and two touchdowns. Triston VanZandt would got for 62 yards on 13 carries and a score.

Gerber connected on 13-of-28 through the air for 225 yards and a touchdown while tossing two picks.

Zack Estrada hauled in five catches for 102 yards and a touchdown while Drayton Salinas caught three balls for 82 yards. Hunter Gibbs had two catches for 29 yards while Triston VanZandt pulled in two passes for 21 yards and Damian Martinez caught one pass for six.

Levelland would rack up 437 yards on the game while Andrews hung up 501.

Casey Buck rushed for 147 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries while Britton Garcia added 10 carrries for 90 yards and three touchdowns.

Jase Keese rushed for 52 while connecting on 24-of-32 through the air for 218 yards and two touchdowns.

The Andrews Mustangs move to three-and-oh on the year while the Levelland Lobos move to one-and-two.

The Lobos hit the road on Friday as they trek to Brownfield to take on the one-and-two Cubs.

Pregame Friday night starts at 6:30pm with kickoff at 7:30pm on KLVT AM1230 and!
