San Benito Edges West, 43-41

Posted: Updated:

Despite a three touchdown fourth quarter, the Warriors fell just short. 

West lost to San Benito in a shootout on Friday night, 43-41, in front of a packed home crowd in their home opener. The loss evens their record on the year at 1-1, after a nail-biting win against Calhoun last weekend. 

After taking a 14-7 lead in the first quarter, the Greyhounds stormed back to rattle off 20 second quarter points and take a 27-21 lead into the locker room at halftime. The start of the second half didn't prove easier for West, as San Benito scored twice more, leading as big as 43-21. 

The Warriors would turn the tide from there, however, finding the end zone three times in the fourth quarter behind some huge offensive plays from QB Donovan Harris and RB Tyvon Hardrick. Hardrick began the comeback effort with an 80-yard touchdown run before Harris found a seam on West's next possession, taking a QB keeper all the way to the house for a 90 yard score. That touchdown cut the Greyhounds' lead to 43-41.

It would prove too little, too late, however, as West was stuffed on their two point conversion attempt. After the defense forced a three-and-out, the Warriors got the ball around midfield with a chance to win the game. After three run attempts for little gain, Donovan Harris' fourth down pass was broken up to turn the ball over and effectively end the game.

The Warriors will travel to Corpus next week, as they begin district play with a road matchup against Moody.
