The Victoria Texans

In a defensive scoring onslaught, the Victoria Texans won their second pre-season game of the season as they defeated the Wharton County Panthers, 22-6.

The defense, led by Jaudis Eaton, had over 15 sacks of Panther quarterback Trey Jones. Doug Ford got the Victoria Texans on the scoreboard first as he took a pick six 90 yards down the left sideline. Keith Hradek added the point-after-try to make it 7-0. After the next defensive stop, the Panthers punted the ball and Doug Ford, looking like a pinball, moved left and right, all the way to the endzone for an exciting 70-yard touchdown return. Hradek added the PAT as the Texans led at halftime, 14-0.

In a slow 3rd quarter, the only score was another defensive score. This time the Texan defense mauled the Panther QB for two points for a safety. At that point, the Texans went into the last stanza with a 16-0 lead. Paris Brown took a run down the left side of the sideline from 45-yards out to finish the Texan scoring. The PAT wasn't good but either way, Texas 22-0. The only score that the Panthers could muster was a run-of-luck play as center Tallen Perry let a rare exchange between himself and Doug Ford get away from him. The Panthers picked it up and ran it in from 18-yards out.

The Texans take back to the road in January as they play the Texas Colts in a "home" game on January 10th in Galveston, Texas at 8 PM.
