The Timberwolves took on the San Angelo Central Bobcats on Sept. 14 at Gupton Stadium. The Bobcats came in at 2-0, with the Timberwolves at 0-2. Cedar Park emerged victorious 37-22.

Sophomore QB Ryder Hernandez started things off in the first half with a 76-yard TD pass to senior WR Carson Neel. Hernandez also connected with junior WR Will Udoye in the back of the end zone for a 15-yard TD pass. According to Hernandez, he finished the game 29-39 with 342 yards and two TDs.

“Our offense came out firing,” Hernandez said. “We didn’t get caught up in our records. We just went out and played ball.”

Junior RBs Daniel Hernandez and Jonathan Stockwell each added a rush TD, putting the game away for Cedar Park. Stockwell said the key to the Timberwolves success was getting a fast start on both sides of the ball.

“We can beat anyone,” Stockwell said. “We have the talent for it. It’s us beating ourselves. If we play how we did [against San Angelo], [fans] will see a deep playoff run or even State.”

The Black Rain defense didn’t allow any points in the first half; the six first-half points for the Bobcats came via a pick six. The defense forced a fumble and also had a sack safety in the fourth quarter.

“We went [into this game] knowing that the past is behind us,” senior LB Sebastian Duran said. “What lies ahead of us is what really matters.”

The Timberwolves travel to Legacy Stadium to take on Katy Cinco Ranch on Sept. 21 before starting district play. 

We are all ready for next week and for another great CPFB season.
