MWJH football teams go 0-5-1 against Stephenville on Tuesday


The Mineral Wells Junior High Rams eighth grade football teams played the Stephenville Yellow Jackets on Tuesday at Ram Stadium.

The Rams “C” team lost 6-0.

“The guys played played hard,” coach Taylor Tomlin said. “The guys had a couple opportunities to score and win the game, but weren’t able to punch it in.

“We had big plays on passes from Jason Hite to Fernando Esparza. Joshua Almanza and Andrew Russel ran hard and Marcus Musser had an interception on defense.”

The Rams “B” team and Stephenvile played to a 20-20 tie.

All three touchdowns were scored by Zack Glover. Two on long rushes, and another on a fumble recovery.

“Trevor Haubert played incredibly well while fighting through an injury,” Tomlin said.

The Rams “A” team lost 26 -0.

“The guys played possibly their best game of the season,” Tomlin said. “James Gonzalez ran wild for us on offense, and he also had a fumble recovery on defense.

“Seth Slack found Tyler Johnson on three straight passing plays that almost ended in a scoring drive. We had several drives inside the 20 yard line, now we have to find a way to put the ball in the end zone next week.

“Honorable mention goes to the offensive and defensive lines in this game. We controlled the line of scrimmage all night. This was definitely a growing experience for us.”

All three MWJH seventh grade football teams fell Tuesday at Stephenville.

The Rams seventh-grade “C” team lost, 32-26, on a last second touchdown pass. Touchdowns were scored by Brady Huseman and Edgar Tejeda.
