Panthers pounce all over Bulldogs

The Quinlan Ford Panthers pounced all over Venus Friday night when they visited the Bulldogs and won big 42-3.

Athletic Director and Head Football Coach Todd Wallace commented, “Overall, I thought our secondary did a good job of shutting down their receivers. They caught a couple of deep routes, but mainly early. The defense did a great job of keeping them out of the end zone. That is always hard to do. Offensively, we were really sloppy. We hit some big plays and did a good job in our hurry-up at the end of the half, but it sounds like a broken record, but our blocking and pass game execution is not where it needs to be. Then, throw in penalties this week, (we had three TDs called back) and we cannot do that against people in our district. We will always take the win and continue working trying to improve.”

Edgar Aguillon scored the first Panther touchdown in the first quarter on an 18-yard run. The PAT was not good. Quinlan led 6-0.

Before the starting period ended, Venus kicked a 22-yard field goal. The second-quarter score was 6-3.

That was the beginning and end of Venus points for the night. They were held scoreless for the rest of the game.

Panther quarterback Linus Beierschmitt ran the ball into the end zone from a yard out to begin a big scoring quarter for Quinlan. Giovanni Landeverde’s kick was good. The score was Quinlan 13, Venus 3.

Beierschmitt scored again for the Panthers on an 84-yard scramble TD. Eli Chambers’ three-yard rush 2-point conversion was good. The Panthers led 21-3 over the Bulldogs.
