A two-week break in their schedule also saw a head coaching change for Dilley as school officials placed athletic director Lamar Rodriguez on administrative leave and named Jay Autrey as its interim AD prior to the Wolves’ district contest against Stockdale on Friday.
Despite the change, the outcome on the field remained the same as Dilley dropped its 17th straight game and fell to 0-6 this season after dropping a 30-8 decision to the Brahmas. Dilley is 0-4 in District 16-3A, Division II.
Autrey did note a couple of bright spots in the loss, singling out the play of Michael Rodriguez and Carlos Gonzales.
“On defense, Michael Rodriguez had a great night with two pass break ups and several outstanding tackles,” the coach said. “Carlos Gonzalez had a great night on offense with seven catches for 52 yards.”
Cristian Aranda accounted for Dilley’s only points when he connected with Jacent Cantu on a six-yard scoring pass in the fourth quarter. Aranda then went in for two on the conversion attempt.
Stockdale took a 15-0 first half lead and never looked back in scoring 30 straight points before the Wolves cracked the scoreboard.
The Brahmas went in on a 30-yard touchdown run with 8:23 remaining in the first for a 7-0 and made it 15-0 following a 26-yard scamper in the third. A penalty allowed the Brahmas to go for two and they were successful.
Stockdale capped another drive midway through the third with a two-yard touchdown to make it 23-0. Another scoring run put the Brahmas up 30-0.
Aranda paced the Dilley offense with 138 yards of offense. He ran for 59 yards on 14 carries and also went 12 of 29 passing for 79 yards and a touchdown and one interception.
Dilley’s road gets no easier as they hit the road this week for a rare Saturday contest against George West. The Longhorns are in the thick of the playoff chase as they sit at 2-2 this season. Poth leads the league at 5-0 while Stockdale and Natalia are tied for second at 3-1, although the Brahmas hold that head-to-head tiebreaker over the Mustangs. George West is third at 2-2 while Karnes City is 1-2. The Badgers are a game behind in the standings after having to postpone their contest against Stockdale. That game will be made up on November 6
