The Eastland Mavericks kicked off the Cliff Watkins era with a win over Merkel on Friday night.

New quarterback Josh Gosnell got right to work with a long pass to set up the Mavericks first scoring opportunity. Then the senior QB would finish the drive off with a touchdown run of his own to put the Mavericks up 7-0.

A short time later Gosnell would find the endzone again on the ground to pad the Mavericks lead in the first quarter.

They would pull away from there for the 45-12 victory.
