The Tuloso-Midway Warriors continued to struggle to get their first win Friday night, losing to the Miller Buccaneers, 21-6.
Both teams were coming off losses last week to elite non-district opponents - Miller lost to 3A powerhouse Ingleside while the Warriors lost to 4A top-ranked Copperas Cove.
The Bucs struck early and never looked back as the rushing performance of quarterback Drexel Smith was impressive with 153 yards in the game and two touchdowns. He also threw for 79 yards with one touchdown.
Smith scored his first one on a 32-yard touchdown run, giving Miller an early 7-0 lead after the first quarter.
In the second quarter, Smith put his passing game to good use finding receiver Abel Fitts for a 14-yard touchdown pass to increase Miller's lead to 14-0 at the end of the first half.
Smith continued his dominating running game in the fourth quarter scoring his second rushing touchdown from 29 yards away.
With the score 21-0, Tuloso-Midway's only bright spot came when quarterback David Alvarez threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to receiver Kevin Sorrows. Overall, Alvarez completed six passes in 13 attempts for one touchdown and two interceptions.
With the win, Miller moves to 2-1 while Tuloso-Midway falls to 0-3. The Warriors head to Pleasanton Friday to face the Eagles, who beat the San Antonio Sam Houston Hurricanes 53-28. The game starts at 7:30 p.m.
The Warriors will remain on the road for a month until they face the Kingsville King Brahmas Oct. 26.
