Lets head out to the rig where a pair of area powerhouses opened up the season as Pearland hosted the Woodlands...
Pearland would get the scoring started, capping a nice drive with this fastball from Jake Sock to Collin Ford, that's a nice grab in traffic and gives the Oilers some early momentum!
Pearland's defense was stout all night long...Here they halt a would be scoring drive as Kelekolio (Kele-colio) Linton makes a great play on the ball, scraping it off the ground and giving pearland the ball with some more momentum.
That interception would lead to points... Darius Hale doing the honors around the right end, he wins the footrace to the pylon to put the Oilers up 14-to-three.
But hale isn’t the only oiler who can run the ball... Backed up to their own 1 yard line and just looking to create a little space they get that and then some! the give is to Dominic Serna, he shakes a few tackles and gets into the highlanders secondary...will they catch him? No!
That's one he'll never forget as he's on his way to a 99 yard house call! A record that can only be tied and never broken. Pearland picks up the opening night win in dominating fashion, 21-3 is the final in this one!
