The Mesquite Skeeters Varsity Football team took on the John Tyler Lions in last Friday’s game in Tyler.
The Skeeters came into the game low on confidence after a defeat to the John Horn Jaguars.
As the game began the Skeeters and Lions went back and forth, each team having their chances and opportunities on offense and also when defending. The Skeeters were able to put 7 points on the board first but John Tyler followed shortly after, tying the game up 7-7.
As the 2nd quarter began, John Tyler was shut out by the Skeeters defense and were unable to score. Mesquites offense was able to capitalize on this and put another touchdown on the board, taking the lead 14-7.
The 3rd quarter kicked off and John Tyler came out swinging, putting up one touchdown and two field goals in the quarter and taking the lead 20-14 and carrying this lead into the 4th quarter.
The 4th quarter was shut out for both sides, with neither team being able to put any points on the board.
The Skeeters have a bye this week and do not play again until homecoming week against Tyler Lee at Hanby Stadium.
