Wimberley Texans crush Manor New Tech

Staff Report

MANOR – Eleven touchdowns, three field goals and a safety.

That’s how the Wimberley Texans Friday accumulated one of the highest single-game point totals in school history as they punished the Manor New Tech Titans in an eye-popping 88-0 district opening win.

Wimberley (6-1, 1-0) exacted nearly all of its damage in the first half by scoring a school record 68 points in the first two frames. Texan quarterback Matthew Tippie led the team by going 8 for 10 for 220 yards and three touchdowns passing.

Behind Tippie was a Texan run game that rushed for 294 yards on 24 carries, led by Juan Olmedo who rushed for 79 yards on four carries and two scores. Texan Moses Wray carried the ball eight times for 77 yards and a touchdown. Eight Texan players recorded at least a carry in the game with six of those players rushing for 30 yards or more.

Wimberley wide receiver Ty Pruett finished with 130 yards on four catches and a touchdown and Jaxson Watts caught the ball twice for 74 yards and a touchdown.

Equally powerful was Wimberley’s defense which shuttered New Tech, playing in its third full season at the varsity level, to less than 200 total yards in the game. In addition, Texans Cole Schroeder, Nova Rankin and John Boyle each recorded a fumble return for a touchdown in the contest. Wimberley recorded 23 of its 88 points on the defensive side.

Special teams also played a key role as Texan kicker Jack Bruner was a perfect 11 for 11 on point after touchdowns and hit all three of his field goal attempts in the game.

Wimberley returns home Oct. 16 when it hosts Austin Eastside Memorial at Texan Stadium.
