Bearcats bounce Borregos



It’s not often that any team, especially at the high school level, gets to represent their community as well as their country, but the Aledo Bearcats got that opportunity Friday night, taking on the Monterrey Prepa Tec Borregos, out of Mexico.

The Bearcats rose to the occasion on defense, overcoming a somewhat slow start to win the contest, 45-6.

“This was one of the better football teams we’ve faced,” Buchanan said of the Borregos. “We didn’t play too well last week, but we made up for it this week.”

After being stopped several times, including a turnover on their own 5-yard line, Aledo bounced back to put the first points on the scoreboard with Pate Davis’ 40-yard connection to Caleb Frysinger. Chance Nevarez’ extra point made it 7-0 at the end of the first.

Prepa Tec got themselves on the board, when Erick O. DeHoyos Argueta skipped through defenders to outdistance everyone on the way to a 34-yard touchdown, and following a blocked kick, Aledo’s lead was cut to one.

The Bearcats turned on the offensive jets in the 2nd quarter, scoring three times on a Davis pass and runs by Jess Anders and Frysinger, to give Aledo a 28-6 lead at the half.

The second half proved to be all Aledo, as the Bearcats tacked on another two scores and Nevarez added a 35-yard field goal, to help cinch the win.

Davis finished with 22-of-34 passing for 241 yards. The Davis-Frysinger duo netted 123 yards, and Anders tacked on 10 carries for 92 yards and two touchdowns.

“We did a lot better with our running game tonight,” Buchanan said. “Davis did a good job of throwing, and that helped to open up our running game.”
