PORTERVILLE - One week after setting several school and section records, the Madera High Coyotes (4-8) season came to abrupt end as the Porterville Panthers unleashed an explosive offensive and defensive effort in a 61-12 victory over the Coyotes.

Porterville’s offense scored early and often, while their defense completely shut down Madera’s explosive offense. In fact, with the exception of Jesus Jimenez’s 193 yards rushing on the night, Madera’s offense was somewhat pedestrian in comparison to its last two performances against Madera South and Hanford. The loss marked the second straight year that Madera’s season ended with a quarterfinal loss to a heavily favored opponent.

HANFORD - Led by the accurate passing of Nathaniel Nelson, the powerful running of Jesus Jimenez, and the superb all-around performance of Alec Gamboa, the Madera High Coyotes opened their 2013 play-off run in the same manner in which they ended the regular season campaign….by completely dismantling an opponent’s defense.

In all, the offense scored 10 touchdowns on the night while the defense posted six sacks, two safeties, one interception, and one fumble recovery in Madera’s convincing 73-35 blowout victory over the Hanford Bull Pups. As if trying to repeat their effort against Madera South High School, the Coyotes had a wide-range of outstanding performances from multiple players on both sides of the ball that ignited the team to its victory in the first-round of the Division III playoffs.

MADERA - What was expected by many to be a very competitive football between Madera’s two high schools quickly became a mismatch from the onset. In the latest edition of the “Stadium Road Showdown,” the Madera High Coyotes thoroughly dominated their cross-town brothers in every aspect of the game while cruising to a 48-7 victory in the regular season finally for both teams. In fact, Friday’s final score represents the largest margin of victory for the Coyotes in the short history between the two schools.

After Madera South’s opening kick-off traveled five-yards forward, then five-yards backwards, for a grand total of zero yards, Madera’s first possession was inside Stallion territory. The Coyotes traveled 40 yards in six plays and scored on a 17 yard pass from Nathaniel Nelson to Alec Gamboa. Madera South immediately answered back, after a 57 yard kick-off return, with a 37 yard touchdown drive to tie the score at 7. That was the last time the game would be close.
