BELLMEAD, Texas The La Vega Pirates stayed undefeated this season with a 49-7 win over Gatesville Friday in the Zimmerman Law Firm Marquee Matchup.
The Pirates got a big night offensively from quarterback Jamal Williams who ran the ball with authority and threw the ball well to lead the Pirates' attack. Williams scored with his legs and throwing the football in a balanced offensive effort.
The Pirates' defense was outstanding in the win. La Vega allowed no first half points and only 7 in the game while forcing turnovers against a dynamic Gatesville offense.
With the win, La Vega improves to 9-0 and locks up the District 13-4A title. Gatesville is now 7-2 with one week left to play.
