Palmview coach Margarito Requenez made good use of last week's bye. His team was fresh and ready when they visited the Mission Eagles. From the start, the Lobos big and strong offensive line opened up huge holes for junior running back Joel Pina.
"He's our whole offense" said Requenez. "We knew he was something special last year. We made sure he was going to be ready for this season."
On their first play from scrimmage, the Lobos ran to the 2-yard line, and scored on the next play, only two minutes into the game. Though Mission answered soon after, the Lobos and Eagles traded fumbles with Palmview tallying the next touchdown. Pina ended the first half scoring with a 3-yard scamper.
