Blocked punt helps Laredo United South slip past Greyhounds
By Armando Garza
Back and forth they went, each making awe-inspiring plays and some head-scratching mistakes, too. But in the end, the Panthers’ cat-like quickness ultimately gave another life to what used to be known as Laredo United’s “other” team.
With 1:40 left in a tie game and facing fourth-and-long deep in its own end, San Benito had no qualms to punt the ball to United South and play more exceptional defense to possibly force overtime. Unfortunately, the Panthers’ Cesar Contreras rushed around, blocked the boot and fell on the eventual game-winning touchdown as United South ultimately bounced San Benito 28-21 at the United ISD Student Activity Complex.
