Javelinas Stomp Central Washington in Opener, Romig honored

Posted: Updated:

KINGSVILLE (Kiii Sports) - It was just the opener the Javelinas needed after a disappointing 2011, as Texas A&M-Kingsville dominated Central Washington 35-7 for the first win this season.

The Javelinas jumped out to a 12-0 lead thanks to senior running back Jonathan Woodson's first score of the season, a beautiful 14 yard run that saw the preseason Harlon Hill candidate go back and forth across the field about three times.

The Wildcats cut the lead to 12-7 at the half, but it was all A&M-Kingsville after the break as the Hoggies got two big interceptions to cut down Central Washington's offense.

The Javelinas will travel to Abilene to face the Wildcats of Abilene Christian in the Lone Star Conference opener next Saturday night. Saturday's matchup could be the final conference showdown between the two, as ACU moves to the Southland Conference (Div. I-AA) next season.

A&M-Kingsville honored former defensive lineman Matt Romig at halftime of Saturday's game by retiring his #51. Romig passed away this past December after a year-long battle with leukemia.
