The mats coming off of a bye week and playing Thursday night football against the Caprock Longhorns.
They were scoreless in the first quarter, Victor Rodriguez connected with Austin Riley for the first down.
The Longhorns would settle for the field goal for the first three points of the game.
Later in the first Estacado's Jalen Tennison was picked off by Zach Lujan, however, Caprock was unable to score on the turnover. So the Matador's capitalize, first with Tennison on the keeper who picked up a nice gain and the first down 3-0 Caprock.
Then Tennison handed off to Robert Johnson who went the distance for the touchdown.
But the Mats ultimately fall 30-26.
