Our Lytle Pirates flexed their muscles once again on Friday as we defeated Natalia 41-13 for the Legacy Bowl trophy once again!
The Pirates exploded for 495 total yards of offense behind another strong performance from Cody Stevens who threw for 208 yards. Nate Medrano had 150 yards rushing and 1 TD. He was named the outstanding player of the game by the Legacy Bowl committee. Diego Hernandez scored 2 TD’s and ran for 102 yards. Jordan Ramirez had some electric plays that busted the game wide open for the Pirates. Hit by at least 5 Mustangs, Jordan shook off the tacklers and sprinted 40 yards for the score. He had 2 TD’s and 112 yards receiving. The offensive line once again turned in another great performances by Paul Castro, Brandon Hernandez, Jonathan Ramirez, Ian Salazar, and Joshua Macat.
The Wrecking Crew defense started off slow and allowed 2 first half scores but then drew the line in the sand and slammed the Mustangs offense into the turf the rest of the night. John Santos turned in a jaw breaking performance once again with 6 tackles, a caused fumble and an interception. Xavier Huerta also had an interception. Jose Soria led the secondary with a clinical performance at the Cornerback position. He held Natalia’s best receiver to -5 yards on the night and was excellent on run support. Chaz Graham was solid once again at the other Cornerback position. Armando Martinez, Juan Perez, Damian Martinez, Daniel Garcia, Orlando Medrano, and David Owens held down the trenches and controlled the line of scrimmage and limited the run game and produced timely sacks.This Friday is our home opener at 7:30 against the Memorial Minutemen. The Pirates look to improve as we inch closer to district play. Come out and support these hard working young men. We are looking forward to a capacity crowd! Come Early, Get Loud, Stay Late! Go Pirates!
