Posted in:

The Geneva School of Boerne football team closed in on a perfect district season after the Eagles defeated San Marcos Baptist on Friday.

Geneva won the game, 49-0, and is 3-0 in district action. The Eagles, 5-4 overall, host Waco Reicher on Friday as they look to run the table in TAPPS 3-III play.

Geneva clinched a playoff spot with last Friday’s victory, but still have to win this coming Friday against Waco Reicher to claim this year’s district title.

The Eagles spread the wealth on Friday and scored seven touchdowns that came from seven different players.

Josh Lopez had the first score of the game on a 13-yard touchdown run and the Ethan Valdez kick made it 7-0.

Easton Myrick then scored on a 35-yard pass play from Cade Barone and it was 13-0 after the missed PAT.

Brock Ambelang had the next Eagles TD on a 9-yard run and the Eagles went up 21-0 after Myrick ran in the two-point conversion.

Jackson Young then added the fourth Geneva touchdown of the night with a 42-yard pass play from Bar-one and the Eagles’ lead was 28-0 after Valdez kicked the extra point.

Chaz Garcia was the fifth Geneva player to score a touchdown after he found pay dirt from seven yards out and it was 35-0 after the Valdez kick.

From there, the defense got into the scoring act after Joel Calderon intercepted a San Marcos Academy pass and returned it 56 yards for a touchdown and the 42-0 lead after Valdez connected on the PAT.

Valdez then had the final score of the night and was the seventh Eagles player to find the end zone after he snagged a 7-yard pass from Aidan Christal to make it 48-0. Valdez then kicked the extra point and it was 49-0 and stayed that way until the final buzzer.

Geneva rolled to 377 yards of offense and held the San Marcos school to 113 yards. The Eagles gained 236 yards through the air and added another 141 yards on the ground and had 19 first downs compared to 5.

Barone was almost perfect through the air and completed 10 of 11 passes for 156 yards and two TDs and Christal was 4 for 5 for a score and George Viña went 3 for 4. Garcia paced the ground game with 60 yards on 12 carries, while three different players had at least three catches.
