San Angelo, TX – On a breezy MOJOween night, Permian took over in the second half to outclaw the San Angelo Central Bobcats 43-31 in the District 2-6A showcase at San Angelo Stadium
Permian’s Juzstyce Lara racked up five rushing touchdowns in the winning effort. The Mojo defense joined the party and shutout the Bobcat offense to keep them off of the scoreboard in the second half.
Central looked well prepared to defend their home field and set the tone early. On the second play of the game, the Bobcats unleashed a 91-yard catch-and-run for a quick 7-0 lead. On the ensuing kickoff, Jadyn Pruitt peeled off a long return to have the Panthers set up shop at the Central 10. Lara capped off the short scoring drive, but the extra point was blocked leaving Mojo trailing by a point.
Lara once again reached paydirt on the next possession for Mojo’s first lead. A two-point conversion gave the Black Cats a 14-7 advantage. The following Central possession resulted in a Pruitt interception just inside the redzone. The Bobcats were able to add a 27-yard field goal to narrow the deficit 14-10 after a quarter of play.
Central added three touchdowns, aided by two big plays, while Permian added a pair of TDs in the second stanza. The Panthers trailed 31-28 at the intermission break.
The Mojo defense shut down the potent Bobcat offense in the second half. Permian regained the lead on Lara’s fifth touchdown run in the third quarter. The Panthers tacked an insurance TD to the scoreboard in the fourth for the 43-31 district win.
Permian will be close out the district slate back in Ratliff Stadium as the Panthers host Midland High next week.
