HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL
Dilley ended one of its more embarrassing streaks in school history as the Wolves blanked Sabinal 21-0 in their football opener last week to snap a 19-game losing streak.
“It was a big win for the boys and the program,” DHS AD and Head Football Coach David Silva said. “It was extremely important to start the season with a win and the boys getting that feeling and experiencing that again.
“I told them back in April, it was gonna happen and after that, they would never want to lose again; winning feels good!”
Despite the enthusiasm following the win, Silva said the program has a lot of work ahead of itself.
“We still need to get better offensively and will look to keep improving on execution and be ready by our first district game on September 24,” the coach said. “Our defense played tough, Dilley Wolves football.”
Following a slow start, the Wolves woke up in the third quarter, scoring 14 points.
Seth Cano accounted for all three scores as he had a pair of nine-yard touchdown runs and a 33 yard score in the fourth.
He finished with 110 yards of total offense, rushing for 83 yards and passing for 27 yards.
Following his first nine-yard score, Cano went in again later in the third and Deuce Cano converted for two points as the team went up 14-0.
Seth’s third score was capped by Josiah Osio’s extra point kick and made it 21-0.
Dilley ran only 32 plays and finished with 197 yards of total offense and seven first downs. The Wolves allowed only nine first downs and forced the Yellowjackets into three turnovers.
The Wolves finished with 168 yards rushing and 29 passing yards.
Deuce Cano added 41 yards on six carries while Dorian Aranda also had 32 yards on five carries.
Aranda also added 37 receiving yards on two receptions.
Dilley will host the Charlotte Trojans this week for Parents’ Night at Gosch Field.
“Charlotte will have good team speed,” Silva said. “They opened up with a 34-0 win over Pettus so they will come in confident and fired up.”
Game time is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
