Midland Lee 44, Lubbock Coronado 10
The weather prevented the Lee band and some spectators from being in the stands, but that didn't distract the Rebels down on the rain soaked field. The mission was simple - snuff out the Mustangs' running game, convert turnovers into points, and turn McAfee loose.
The Lee defense held up their end, preventing Coronado from getting its first 1st down until the final play of the first quarter. The Rebels D also forced two fumbles in the game. Setting up the Lee offense for the first score of the game, Michael Morales forced a Mustangs fumble that Gage McSwain recovered on the Coronado 26. McAfee wasted no time busting loose on the very next play for a 26-yard touchdown run, giving Lee an 8-0 lead.
After Reilly Gwin capped a 14-play drive with a 31-yard field goal, Lee began its next drive at the Mustang 40 and scored in four plays on a 13-yard touchdown by McAfee that put Lee up 18-0 to close out the first quarter. The next Lee drive started at the Coronado 21 and two plays later, McAfee was at it again. This time scoring a 17-yard touchdown that made it 24-0 early in the second quarter. McAfee collected his fourth touchdown from five yards out to give the Rebels a 30-0 lead at the half.
With the absence of both team bands, the die-hard Rebels fans spent more time in the concourse area to dry out. After the introduction of the Homecoming Court, Dee Ganoa was announced as Queen and Charlie Winkley was named as King.
McAfee went over the 200-yard mark on his final carry of the night - a 56-yard TD run, giving Lee a 37-0 lead. Aron Dobbins would take over the running duties midway through the third quarter. The sophomore running back capped the scoring for Lee with a 35-yard run on a 4th-and-7. The 44-0 shutout was negated in the fourth quarter, when Coronado QB Kameron Wilborn scored on a 50-yard run. Joey Alexander kicked a 23-yard field goal with two minutes left in the game. The Rebels improve to 2-0 in district and 4-1 for the season.
