Game Recap

The NoCro Panthers come out victorious for Homecoming 17′ by dominating FW Paschal to a 42-7 win bringing our overall record to (4-3, 2-2) heading into week 10 of the Tx HS football season. The energy Friday night was awesome as the NoCro fan base and student body came out in full force packing the home side stands for the much needed support to spark our play. With Homecoming Kings and Queens being announced all over the place, there was plenty going on, plenty of energy in the atmosphere. Yet as the saying goes, “the show must go on”!
Opening moments of the game would provide plenty of drama as we would receive the opening tip and fumble it on the 50yd line after a positive return. On the very next drive, the NoCro defense would force a fumble of our own and Sr. CB-Delven Davis would scoop the fumble regaining the possession back for our offense. The offense wouldn’t disappoint, as the Leake to Jones combo wouldn’t waste any time as they connected for an 18yd TD, marking the 15th time these two would, “strike up the band”! Defensively, we would attack the field wasting no time proving to FW Paschal that we were here to play as the front 7 would pretty much dominate the contest. The entire defensive front would have meaningful and impact play as the run heavy Paschal team struggled to find daylight.
The offense would sputter the 1st half as they seemed a bit out of sync, yet through the those struggles our offense would still muster 20pts by the half as the NoCro ground attack would play as consistent as it has all season to date. Sr. RB-Jailen Robinson would break a 60yd run to bust the game open scoring his 8th TD of the season. Our offensive just “rocks steady” giving our skill players all the opportunities in the world to do what they do best. The next score would come from Jr. RB-Ryan Fisher on a 13yd scamper sticking foot and making a defender miss as he trotted his way into the end zone closing out the 1st half.
Coming out of the half, the NoCro defense would force a stop and provide our offense with great field position. That field position warranted the 16th connection for Leake to Jones as they connected for a 7yd TD pushing the lead to 27-0 into the 3rd quarter. On the next drive, the defense would squander getting off the field and maintaining the shut out as a face mask penalty and a dropped INT, kept Paschal in play as they touched the end zone from 1yd getting there lone score on the evening closing out the 3rd quarter. With the game in tack, we would shorten the game ourselves and let the reserve players close out the contest. We would score two TD’s late in the 4th quarter pushing the final score to 42-7 and completing the night victorious.
Offensively, the night belonged to the offensive line and RB’s Sr-Jailen Robinson & Jr-Ryan Fisher. The entire OL, showed there nasty faces again punishing our opponent while Robinson would rush for 121yds on 12 carries and 1 TD. Fisher had 5 carries for 84yds and 2 TD’s! Sr. WR-Julian Jones would score 2 TD’s on the night and Jr. QB-Caleb Leake would throw 2 TD’s as well.
Defensively, the front four again proved to be too much. Led by Jr. DT-Kelton Davis who had 10 tackles, 2TFL’s and 1 Sack. Sr. DE’s-Jaylan Sharp & Kearis Thompson had their hands all over the contest as well with 18 combined tackles(9 a piece) and Sr. DT-James Bell closed out the front four effort with 6 tackles, 1TFL & 1 Sack. The other splash performance would come from Jr. LB-Justin Cleveland whose consistent play will be called upon as we continue to fight for the playoffs as he amassed 9 tackles, 2 TFL’s & 1 Sack.
Next week, we’ll travel back over to UTA on Friday Oct. 27th for the much awaited showdown with our hated rival Arlington Martin in a pivotal playoff positioning contest for both teams. In what will be a heated and highly competitive contest, your NoCro Panthers will most certainly look to go to UTA and go take what’s rightfully ours. We hope to see you there, loud and pride supporting the Panthers as we get steps closer to accomplishing our 2017 “Great Hopes”! Until then and as always, God Bless and “Happy Hunting”!
