FREER — The Freer Buckaroos didn’t waste any time playing around with the Premont Cowboys.

With the Cowboys fielding a varsity football program for the first time in years because of school district financial woes, Freer’s objective was simple — get up early, score often and play some decent football. The Buckaroos did all of those things and they did it in a hurry.

With senior Daniel Marin running the offense, the Buckaroos scored right away on their first possession on a run up the middle.

After the Buckaroos’ defense forced a turnover on the Cowboys’ first play from scrimmage, Freer went on to score again on a pass from Marin.

Freer’s defense again proved too much on Premont’s next possession. This time, the Buckaroos cashed in on an interception when they returned for a touchdown.

With 8:20 left in the first quarter, the Buckaroos already owned a three-touchdown lead. Much like the rain and drizzle resisted for the rest of the evenings, things continued Freer’s way for the rest of the game. When it was finally over, the Buckaroos owned a 54-0 victory.

With the win, Freer improved to 4-1 for the season; their only loss coming against Bishop in the first week of the season.

“We’ve gotten a lot better since that first week,” first-year Freer coach Jerry Carpentier. “We had a bunch of young kids and they’ve stepped up. That’s really the reason why I think we’re playing better. We had a bunch of kids that now have an idea of what Friday night lights are about.”

Freer is playing Riviera on the road Friday before beginning district play a week later at home against Three Rivers.
