BALLINGER– The Ballinger Bearcats allowed only 53 offensive yards, while quarterback Jacob Rodriquez and tailback Zach Perez combined for four touchdowns and almost 350 yards, to defeat the Winters Blizzards by a score of 47-7 at Bearcat Stadium.

The game, held on Friday, September 7, 2012, marked the renewal of a longstanding rivalry that had been put on hold for 25 years.

The game was the second win of the Bearcats this season, doubling their 2011 harvest when they had a record of 1-9.

Winters, on the other side, suffered their second defeat of the year after falling to Mason in the season opener.
