Ruben Aguirre rushed for 204 yards and a touchdown to lead St. Genevieve to a 34-6 nonleague victory over Paraclete on Saturday night at Birmingham High.
Aguirre had rushed for only 47 yards when the Valiants were shut out by Quartz Hill last week.
"He did a better job running. His head was up and he made better cuts this time," St. Genevieve Coach Lindon Crow said.
Aguirre scored his touchdown on the Valiants' second play. He took a handoff, found a hole in the left side, cut back to the middle and sprinted 70 yards down the right sideline for the score.
Aguirre had 124 yards by the end of the first half. Although he didn't score again, Aguirre twice brought the Valiants (1-1) inside the Paraclete five-yard line, where Chad Russell and D. J. Vlaming scored on 1- and 2-yard runs, respectively.
