CIBOLO, Texas — Cibolo’s Byron P. Steele High School won its second consecutive game, earning a lopsided victory against the New Braunfels Canyon High School 42-17 Friday night at Robert and Glenda Lehnhoff Stadium.
Since first-year coach David Saenz incorporated Wyatt Begeal in the second half of last week’s game — resulting in three scoring drives — the offense has changed as a team behind the freshman quarterback. In his second game of action, Begeal finished with 159 yards through the air and two touchdowns.
After running back Brenden Brady found the end zone on the first drive with a 20-yard scramble, the Knights embarked on three consecutive scoring runs and a 70-yard punt return for a touchdown by Caden Sterns. Former quarterback Onyx Smith finished the half with a 10-yard touchdown out-pattern going towards the sideline corner; the senior and Bowling Green commit had five catches for 63 yards in his first game of the year starting at receiver.
Begeal didn’t play in the second half besides the first drive. Brady was responsible for 13 runs for 137 yards and two touchdowns in the first half; the Rice commit wasn’t deployed in the second half. After being held out the first game against Madison, Brady has scored in six consecutive games and has totaled an average 163.5 yards and two scores in the last two victories — an improvement from the 65 yards he accumulated in a loss to Converse Judson earlier this month.
The Knights offense accumulated 376 total yards in 17 minutes and 16 seconds; time is not always indicative of the outcome of the game and Steele used their speed to make quick work of Canyon.
Steele is now in the driver’s seat for yet another playoff run. The Knights travel to winless East Central next Friday.
