The Ysleta Indians made a visit to Alan Sepkowitz Stadium to take on the Andress Eagle in the opening night of Bi-District action. In the last fifty years, this would be the tenth time these two programs would meet on the field. With the Indians winning their last encounter in 2007, the Eagles had plans break that streak at one.
The Eagles were first to get points on the scoreboard on a 16yd run by Malcolm Anderson almost midway thru the first quarter. Both defenses managed to keep their opponents at bay thru most of the first quarter. Andress would lead 7-0 at the end of the opening quarter.
The Eagles defense would give the team an additional touchdown on a interception that was returned 70yd to the end zone in the opening minutes of the second quarter.
Andress would score a few minutes later on a 47yd touchdown run by Jeremiah Cooper. Ysleta scored on the ensuing drive on a 2yd run by Arath Gomez. The point after attempt was no good.
The Indians were looking to get the ball once more before they half came to an end having the Eagles pinned deep in their own red zone. Cooper would have the games longest touchdown run from scrimmage when he scored on a 95yd sprint up the middle.
With the Indians looking to get some more points going into halftime, Cooper would put an end to those hopes. Cooper intercepted the Indians inside the five yard line to score his longest touchdown of the game. Cooper returned the interception with no time left on the clock 97yds for the touchdown.
Andress would lead 35-6 at the half.
Andress would score the games final points early in the third quarter on a 20yd touchdown run by Cooper. The Eagles would go on to win 42-6.
Andress will have to wait until Friday night to see who they play next week
