DISTRICT 15-3 A, DIVISION I FOOTBALL
Stockdale pitches shutout, keeps Dilley winless in league play.
Dilley’s defense kept the team in yet another game but missed opportunities cost the Wolves in a 22-0 loss to Stockdale in District 15-3A, Division II play last Friday.
With two games remaining in the season, Dilley was mathematically eliminated from the postseason as even with two wins in their final two games, Karnes City would hold the head-to-head tiebreaker for the fourth and final playoff spot.
Poth and Natalia are both unbeaten in league play and will battle for the district title this Friday. Stockdale and Karnes City are battling for third place while George West at 1-3 is looking to make a move and sneak into the fourth place slot. With wins in its final two games, the Longhorns could supplant Stockdale for a playoff spot.
After a 4-0 start to its season, Dilley has dropped four in a row, the last two despite strong defensive efforts that kept them in each contest.
“We played one of our most physical games of the year,” DHS AD and Head Football Coach David Silva said. “The defense again played lights out. Charles Morales and Clay Tom Hurt continue to be forces and Jonas Rodriguez, Vicente Correa, and Aiden Gonzalez had good games.
“Offensively, we got in the redzone twice and couldn’t punch it in,” he said. “Winning our last two games will be great motivators going into the off-season.”
Stockdale took the early lead as they scored on a two-yard run to go up 7-0. They would go up 14-0 at halftime and put the game away with a fourth quarter score.
The Brahmas took advantage of a pair of Dilley turnovers and outgained the Wolves by over 100 yards.
Stockdale rolled up 295 yards of offense and 17 first downs while limiting Dilley to 181 yards and nine first downs.

Deuce Cano added 21 yards on eight carries and Dorian Aranda finished with 16 yards on six totes.
Derik Garcia hauled in three receptions for 57 yards for Dilley.
Hurt led the defensive effort with 12 total tackles while Aiden Gonzalez and Charles Morales both had nine total tackles apiece.
