MV 8B Hawks Go Hollywood in Win over Boerne, 28-8

Mountain Valley 8B squad regained their dominance over Boerne when they started their day keeping these Greyhounds in their muzzle without a trace of a bark in their, 28-8 win.

Defense was the name of this game as Boerne had center snap problems that would just exasperate their offensive rhythm and Mountain Valley would certainly take advantage by clamping down on all the Greyhound’s offense advances.

Scoring with no time on the halftime clock when Quarterback Cade Dunavant found receiver Zack (Hollywood) Taliaferro behind Boerne’s defensive backs for a game clinching touchdown from 37 yards out.

“I did a fade route and Cade (Dunavant) had a good pass but it was on the wrong side but I just looked to the corner of the end zone,” Hollywood Taliaferro said as if he was rehearsing for the lead roll.

“That play helped us to keep our momentum,” Dunavant said. “This was our last home game and we wanted this win.”

Mountain Valley will hope that this momentum continues into their game next week as they prepare for this same group of players for round two.

“This was a good game because they beat us last year,” Hollywood said with the bright lights in his eyes.

Dunavant also had a play when he gained 31 yards on a pass play that had no receivers open.

“The receiver got jammed and so I just tucked it (the ball) and ran,” Dunavant kept running. “Their player got my jersey and then just spun me around and then I found only my guys on the other side of the field and ran.”

Dunavant probably ran about 20 more yards than what he gained on this play as he was finally run down on the Hawk 9 yard line.

Wyatt Meckel scored on the drive which was poetic justice since Meckel had a 67 yard touchdown called back on an earlier drive.

“Whoever tries harder and executes will win our game next week,” Dunavant said while answering a question on what happened last year when MV lost that second game.

This game was dominating when you have players like Nic Robison who accumulated 74 yards on four carries all in the first half.

Robison was not used as a running back again for the game….everything was well in control.

Simple fact about this group of players that have a ‘B’ on their school name….this team would easily be an ‘A’ team if putting on uniforms of other schools that they have played.

At one point in this game, Boerne had (-37 yards rushing) at one time as they tried to get their Greyhounds out of their gate to run a race.

Their problem? It is hard for a Greyhound to out distance a Hawk and that was certainly the case on this night on so many levels.

Good Game Hawks and go get ’em next week and dominate again!!!

Heck, The ReSporter is just glad that we were finally able to spell Taliaferro correctly. From here on out it might just be spelled: Hollywood!
