2021 PANTHERS PART OF SCHOOL HISTORY

web

November 4 (MMS)   The Panthers capped off one of their best seasons in many years Thursday night.  For the last twenty-plus years MMS has played an independent football schedule and have never been part of a district.  This year the Panthers played in 2A Region 3 District 12 along with Deweyville, Evadale, Burkeville, and Sabine Pass.  Hull-Daisetta is also in the district but were not on the Panthers schedule.  The Panthers opened the season with a win against the Bridge City 8B team before dropping close games to Evadale and Deweyville to open district play.  Sitting at 1-2 and 0-2 in district, the team worked hard to improve and bounced back with four straight district wins including a huge win at Evadale.  MMS fell to a tough St. Anne team in a non-district game before taking on Deweyville in the final game of the season.  The Panthers stood at 5-3 overall and 4-2 in district play while Deweyville sat at 5-1 in district.  A win would give the Pirates the outright district title while a Panther win would give MMS a share of the title.  In a game that will be remembered for years to come, the Panthers clawed their way to a win with just under a minute left in the game.  It was one of the biggest wins in history for the Panthers as it gave them something the school had never had – A part of a district title.  That district title is now forever part of Mauriceville Panther Football history.  The 2021 Panthers have a place next to the two back-to-back undefeated teams of the early 2000’s and the undefeated Panthers of 2009.  It was a year that will not soon be forgotten!

 


 

PANTHERS EDGE PIRATES TO CLAIM SHARE OF DISTRICT TITLE

web

November 4 (MMS) - The Panthers hosted the Deweyville Pirates looking for revenge after an early season 16-14 district loss at Deweyville.  A win would give the Pirates (5-1 in district) the outright 12-2A District title while a Panther win would give MMS (4-2 in district) a share of the title.  The game started out fast as MMS jumped up 12-0 in the first behind touchdown runs by Dreyden Cook and Jeffrey Womack.  The Pirates answered with a TD drive in the second quarter to make it a 12-8 Panther lead at the half.  Deweyville took advantage of an opening second half onside kick and drove the endzone to grab a 16-14 lead.  Another onside kick gave the Pirates great field position and a good shot to score to put the game away.  A huge stand by the Panther defense gave the offense one last shot at re-taking the lead.  The Panthers drove inside the Pirate 40-yard line before the Pirate defense forced a game deciding fourth down.  With the season and a share of the schools first district on the line – a final timeout was called with 0:58 seconds left in the game to set up a miracle play on 4th-and-18.  The offense lined up, the ball was snapped, and 47 yards later Jeffrey Womack became a hero for years to come as he crossed the goalline for a Panther touchdown.  Now up 18-14 with 0:42 left, the Panther defense held and a final Pirate pass attempt fell incomplete as the clock hit zero.  History had been made in a game that was one of the best games ever seen at Panther Field.  The Panthers finished 2021 6-3, 5-2 and were part of a district title for the first time in school history!

PANTHERS FALL TO TOUGH WILDCAT TEAM

web

October 28 (MMS) – The Panthers hosted the St. Anne Wildcats Thursday afternoon.  It was a packed house as it was Mauriceville Youth Football and Cheer Night at the game.  Many players and cheerleaders came out and did the pre-game run-though with Coach Strandberg and the Panthers.  The game was a battle as the Panthers chewed up most of the first half only to have a costly fumble stop a drive deep in Wildcat territory.  St. Anne managed a late second quarter touchdown and grabbed an 8-0 lead at the half.  The second half saw the Wildcats grab the lone score of the half as they pulled out a 14-0 win.  The loss was a non-district loss for the Panthers as they dropped to 5-3 overall.  MMS (5-3, 4-2) will host the Deweyville Pirates in the final game of the season next Thursday at 5pm.

 


 

FOUR WINS IN A ROW FOR THE ‘VILLE

web

October 21 (Sabine Pass) – The Panthers took their three game district win streak on the road as they travelled to Sabine Pass to take on the Sharks.  Behind another tremendous game from both the offense and defense, the Panthers came away with a 28-8 win and moved their win streak to four.  Dreyden Cook put the Panthers up 6-0 on a first quarter touchdown run only to have the Sharks answer back with a touchdown and conversion to grab an 8-6 lead.  From there on it was all Mauriceville as Sam Winn scored two touchdowns in the second quarter and the defense stepped up and shut down the Sharks.  Up 20-6 late in the third, Jeffrey Womack put the game away as he went 68 yards to make it 28-6.  The win puts the Panthers at 4-2 in district play and 5-2 overall.  Next up will be a non-district match-up with the St. Anne Wildcats next Thursday at Panther Field.

 


 

PANTHERS PICK UP THIRD DISTRICT WIN IN A ROW

October 14 (MMS) – The Panthers returned home to Panther Field for the first time in three weeks and came away with a dominating 40-8 district win over the visiting Burkeville Mustangs.  The offense rolled up solid numbers on the ground and through the air.  The Panthers found the endzone five times converted on all five two-point conversions.  Dreyden CookSam Winn, and Ashtin Fountain each rushed for one TD while quarterback Clay Raney rushed for one TD and passed for one to brother Jake Raney.   Cook had three two-point conversions, Fountain had one conversion, and Cazador Edgerton ran in the final conversion.  The Panther defense played an error free/penalty free four quarters allowing just one lone fourth quarter touchdown to the Mustangs.  Bryce Busby and Clay Moore locked down the run game up the middle while linebackers Ethan Pope, Isaiah Watzlavik, Winn, and the secondary had one of their best “team defense” games of the season.  The Panthers (4-2, 3-2) will hit the road for their last away game of the season next Thursday when they travel to Sabine Pass to take on the Sharks at 5pm.

 


 

PANTHERS WIN AGAIN – GET REVENGE ON REBELS

Web Pic

October 7 (Evadale) – The Panthers travelled to Evadale Thursday afternoon looking for revenge after the Rebels eaked out an 8-0 district win early in the season at Mauriceville.  The Panthers waisted little time as they jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter.  Evadale would find the endzone late in the half to cut it to a 14-8 Mauriceville lead.  The second half was all Panthers as they put up two more scores to cruise to a 28-8 win.  Dreyden Cook and Sam Winn pounded the Rebel defense all afternoon as Cook rumbled for over 150 yards and 3 touchdowns while Winn went for over 80 yards and a touchdown.  Winn also connected with Jake Raney on a 47 yard pass late in the second quarter.  The “O” line, led by standout game from Bryce Busby, did a tremendous job opening holes for Cook and Winn.  The Panther defense played another solid game as they held the Rebels running and passing game in check.  Ashtin Fountain had two huge interceptions and Clay Raney also pulled in an interception late in the second half.  The win moves Mauriceville to 2-2 in district play and 3-2 overall. MMS will look to win their third in a row when they host the Burkeville Mustangs next Thursday at 5:30.

September 30 (Burkeville) – The Panthers picked up a big district road win Thursday afternoon as they downed the Burkeville Mustangs 20-6.  Dreyden Cook had two first quarter touchdown runs and Sam Winn had a late second quarter TD run behind the solid blocking of Odes Gordan, Isaac Woods, Riley James, Luke Scott, Isaiah Watzlavik, and tight end Jeffrey Womack.  Watzlavik also had a huge game on special teams as he averaged over 40 yards a kick on kickoffs.  The defense held the Mustangs scoreless in the first half.  Clayton Moore, Bryce Busby, Dayton Sterling, Cazador Edgerton, and Ethan Pope all had a tremendous game.  Defensive back Sam Barnes had the defensive play of the game as he had a big interception lat in the first half.  The second half saw the second team see a majority of the playing time and keep Burkeville to a loan fourth quarter score and secure the win.  The Panthers (2-2, 1-2) will be on the road again next Thursday at Evadale.  

 


 

PANTHERS EDGED BY PIRATES

September 23 (Deweyville) - The Panthers travelled to Deweyville Thursday afternoon for their first road game of the season.  MMS jumped out 8-0 as Sam Winn (above #12) capped off a solid opening drive with a 10 yard touchdown run and Dreyden Cook (above #44) rumbled in for the 2-point conversion.  After the defense held the Pirates on their first possession, Winn found the endzone again for a 62 yard touchdown to put the Panthers up 14-0.  Deweyville would take advantage of a big kickoff return and would drive to a late second quarter touchdown cutting the Panthers lead to 14-6.  Deweyville got the opening kickoff of the second half and would slowly move down the field and eat up the entire quarter.  The Pirate possession went into the fourth quarter and ended with a touchdown and 2-point conversion that gave them a 16-14 lead.  The Panthers moved the ball inside Pirate territory on two quick plays but a costly fumble would end the drive.  Deweyville managed to run the clock out with another clock-eating drive to come away with the win.  The loss drops MMS to 0-2 in district play and 1-2 overall on the season.  The Panthers will look to get back in the win column when they travel to Burkeville next Thursday to play the Mustangs.

PANTHERS FALL IN TIGHT GAME WITH REBELS

web

September 16 (MMS) – The Panthers hit the field Thursday afternoon despite a week that saw Hurricane Nicholas keep them from practicing and even attending school on Tuesday.  Coming off a week one win, the Panthers welcomed the Evadale Rebels to Panther Field to kick off district play.  Both teams struggled to move the ball in the first half and the Panthers couldn’t take advantage of two Rebel turnovers.  Dreyden Cook came up with a fumble recovery early in the first quarter and Jake Raney ended another Rebel drive late in the half with an interception.  The game remained scoreless until Evadale found the endzone midway through the fourth quarter and converted the two-point conversion to go up 8-0.  MMS seemed to have an answer as they drove inside the Rebel redzone but couldn’t convert as they turned the ball over on downs with just over a minute left in the game.  Evadale took over and ran the clock out for an 8-0 win.  The Panthers (1-1,0-1) will go back to work and hit the road next Thursday for a match-up with the Deweyville Pirates.

September 9 (MMS) – For the first time since 2018 the Panthers played a home game in Mauriceville.  Storms and COVID have forced “home” games to be played at LCM’s Battlin’ Bear Stadium the past three years.  The Panthers took full advantage of the opportunity as they welcomed the Bridge CIty Cardinals 8B team to Panther Field.  Dreyden Cook got the Panthers on the board early in the first quarter with a 26 yard touchdown run to make it 6-0.  Clay Raney came through on the next Cardinal possession with a big interception to set the Panthers up deep in BC territory.  Raney, also the starting quarterback, took advantage and connected with Cook for an 18 yard touchdown pass (Raney ran in the 2-point conversion) to put the Panthers up 14-0.  The defense, led by linebackers Sam Winn and Ethan Pope, would keep the Cardinals out of the endzone on a late drive and kept the lead to 14-0 going into halftime.  Clay Raney and Dreyden Cook brought the fans to their feet once again as Raney hit Cook for an 87 yard TD pass on the first play of the third quarter to make it 20-0.  The Panther defense played solid in the second half as they forced three BC turnovers.  Isaiah Watzlavik had a forced fumble while Pope and Isaac McMillion each had a fumble recovery.  The third turnover came on a Jake Raney interception late in the fourth quarter that sealed a 20-6 win for the Panthers.  The Panthers (1-0) will host the Evadale Rebels next Thursday at 5pm.
