On Friday September 28th the Ponder Lions football team took on the Boyd Yellowjackets in the district opener for both teams. The Lions got off to a shaky start, fumbling on the 2nd play of scrimmage and giving Boyd the ball at the Lions 12 yard line. The good field position quickly led to a Yellowjacket touchdown and an early 6-0 deficit for the Lions. On their next position the Lions struck back quickly as Senior Mason Durrett found a hole and snapped off a 70 yard touchdown run on the first play. The touchdown put Mason in a tie for the all-time lead in career touchdowns at Ponder. After that it was a rough go for the Lions offense, and Boyd pulled away with passing touchdowns on three straight possessions at the end of the first quarter and the beginning of the second. The Lions scored their only other touchdown on a determined run from Senior Carlos Zepeda as he ran straight through multiple defenders all the way to the end-zone for a 31 yard score. The Lions ultimately fell to the Yellowjackets 35-14 and start district 0-1. The Lions will play what will likely be a must win game for the team to make the playoffs next week at Paradise.
