During the first quarter Cristian Gonzales (51) sacked the Compass Pass quarterback which lead to an Iann Rodriquez (22) run that set up the first touchdown by Anson Rendon (23).
On the next Longhorn possession, Nathan Ceniceros (8) scored a touchdown and Rendon went in for the two-point conversion.
