AUSTIN — Entering Friday night’s game, Lake Travis head coach Hank Carter knew he was in going to be a challenge against a battle-tested Dallas Jesuit squad. He got that and more, but the Cavaliers managed to pull away for a 64-45 victory at Cavalier Stadium.
“Their Achilles heel has been their ability to stop their opponent,” he said prior to Friday’s game, “But they have a solid offense and their defense will give us many different looks.”
Jesuit got off to a fast start, scoring seven points on their first drive of the game and the defense turning around and stopping the Cavaliers on their first possession. Cameron Dicker puts The Cavs name on the board with a 31- yard field goal, leaving the score at 7-3 Jesuit.
After a slow start, the Cavaliers were able to swing the momentum back in their favor as Garrett Wilson took back a punt return back 70 yards to give the Cavaliers the lead.,Hudson Card would add another 46-yard touchdown to make it 16-10 at the end of the first quarter over the Rangers.
Entering the second quarter, the Lake Travis offense seemed to find its rhythm thanks to a strong effort from senior running back Nick Villarreal and later from Kyle Wakefield with a 69-yard touchdown catch. The Rangers would add a score late in the half to make it 29-24 Cavaliers heading into the locker room.
The second half started off with a bang, as Nathan Parodi took a kickoff back 81 yards to open up the scoring for Lake Travis in the second half. The two teams exchanged touchdowns throughout the second half but the Rangers simply couldn’t keep up with the high-powered Cavalier offense.
Lake Travis is now 2-1 and will face Pflugerville Hendrickson next Friday. Dallas Jesuit falls to 0-3 and will take on Coppell.
