The Antelope JV (3-0) defeated Slaton 20-2 Thursday night at Jimmy Redman Stadium. After a scoreless first quarter, the Lopes put 20 points on the board in the second.
The Lopes took possession on their own 35 and on runs by quarterback Blaine Reece and running back Cambry Gilbert crossed into Tiger territory. On the final play of the drive, Gilbert took the pitch and out ran past the Tiger defense to give Post a 6-0 lead with 9:45 to play in the first half. The PAT failed.
Post would score two more times before half. Gilbert once again got outside of the Tiger defense and scored from the 39. Again, the PAT was unsuccessful.
The last score of the quarter was when Reece took a QB sneak in from 5 yards out behind the blocking of Raphael Gonzales, Blake Boren and Edel Sanchez. Christian Saucedo's diving catch on the PAT gave Post a 20-6 lead at the half.
During the 2nd half Post moved the ball up and down the field but was unable to score any points.
The defense had several stops in the fourth quarter including a goal line stand denying the Tigers a chance to put points on the board. Outside linebacker Blaine Osborn tackled the Tiger QB on fourth and goal. Also in on the stand was Gonzales, Boren , Kaleb Crenshaw and David Hernandez.
The Lopes will be in action next Thursday Sept. 20 at Tahoka at 6:00.
