EL PASO, Texas – The Ysleta Indians came into Week Two looking to continue their dominant offensive attack.  And continue it they did by defeating the El Paso High Tigers 56-14

Ysleta began scoring quickly and often in the first quarter when quarterback Adrian Jaquez hit Giovanni Martinez on a 54-yard touchdown pass that made it 7-0.  On their second drive, Jaquez hit Lucas Flores for a 59-yard score to get to 14-0.  That was followed by a 19-yard touchdown run by Seth Ramos that put Ysleta ahead 20-0 with 3:01 left in the opening quarter

The Tigers finally got on the board when Zach Rodriguez connected with Yan Arias from 16 yards out to close with 20-7.  The Indians would answer on their next offensive play when Jaquez completed a 61-yard touchdown score with Sebastian Portillo to expand their lead to 27-7 at the end of the first quarter.

Rodriguez would score on a one yard quarterback sneak for El Paso High to close out a drive that ate up more half of the second quarter.  This made the score 27-14.  Jaquez connected with his fourth different receiver when he found Gavin Espino from 18 yards out to get to 33-14 at the half.

 Ysleta would close out the scoring with Jaquez connecting with Seth Ramos from twelve yards out, Jaquez scoring on a one yard sneak, and Dathon Loray rushing in from two yards—all in the third quarter–for the final margin of 56-14. 

Jaquez finished 11 of 18 for 345 yards and five passing touchdowns, while adding a one yard rushing score to be name the Speaking Rock Player of the Game. 

Ysleta improves to 2-0, while El Paso drops to 0-2.
