Home Sports Football: Panthers smashes Saints

Football: Panthers smashes Saints

The only loss for the Panthers last Friday was the coin toss. Maxwell smashed the host Delta Saints by a score of 42-6. 

Quarterback Trent Hendrix wasted no time in the first quarter, launching a 26-yard touchdown pass to Isaiah Cardenas on the first play of the Panthers’ second drive and giving Maxwell a 6-0 advantage. Hendrix connected with Cardenas twice in the first half taking his team to a quick 12-0 lead. Maxwell continued to capsize on Delta’s defense with a quarterback sneak by Hendrix and a 2-point conversion completion by Dillon Dry, and ending the first half with a 20-0 lead.

A Maxwell turnover on downs, early in the third, gave Delta the ball on their own 31-yard line, only to be fumbled and recovered by Maxwell. Hendrix’s 15-yard pass to Nacho Velazquez put the Panthers on the scoreboard yet again.

Stopping Delta at every down was the name of the defensive game for Maxwell, as Delta fell short on downs, once again forcing a Saints punt. Hendrix again found Cardenas to convert for a 62-yard rush to the end zone for a
32-0 score.

Delta found their success a little too late in the start of the fourth quarter with a touchdown pass by Robert Reichow, and putting the Saints on the scoreboard. 

Hefty ground gains by Hendrix set up a hand off to Christian Cabrera a few drives later, which sealed the fate of the Saints as Maxwell grabbed a 42-6 victory.

“This was a good team win,” said Head Coach Russ Jones. “It was good to get all the players in to share the victory. Our goal is to improve each week and so far we are hitting that goal.”

Cardenas had a blowout performance with 257 yards on 18 carries, breaking Maxwell Varsity record, per MaxPreps, for most yardage in a regular season game. The record was previously set back in 2010 by Brett Cabral, who carried 15 times for 243 total yards. 

On defense, Cabrera led with five tackles and two assists, followed by Wyatt Hendrix with five tackles and two sacks. Williams Kuska added a sack on the defensive drive.

The Panthers, 2-0, will prepare for their home game against Fall River, 1-1, on Friday, with a 7 PM start time. ■
