Thursday was opening night for Fort Stockton sub-varsity football. JV blue traveled to Monahans, with the panthers getting off to a great start while the first half being a defensive battle. Going into halftime, the panthers trailed 16-6. Unfortunately, Monahans had the better second half, with the final score being 36-12. The two freshman Isiah Velasquez and Corbin Luna both had strong games on both sides of the ball. Julian Leyva showed strong promise as a freshman on both the Defensive Line and offensive line.
Despite the loss, the JV blue panthers showed some promise from the underclassman. The future of the Fort Stockton football program looks strong.
The JV Blue panthers next game will be next Thursday against alpine at 5:30pm here at panther stadium.
