DISTRICT 15-3 A, DIVISION II
Dilley scored 20 second half points and rallied from a 20-7 deficit to knock off George West and collect its first win in six weeks last Friday, October 29.
Seth Cano and Dorian Aranda both had a pair of touchdowns with Aranda’s 97-yarder in the fourth quarter proving to be the game winner. The Wolves went for two points following the score instead of an extra point and the tie, to win the game.
“The boys really displayed what Wolf Pride is all about,” DHS AD and Head Football Coach David Silva said. “Never giving up and believing in themselves. We lost two starters early in the game and had to come out in the second half with an offensive set we’d put on early in the week.
“We then scored on three of five possessions in the second half, one was a fumble deep in George West territory,” the coach said. “We’ve hit all of our goals for this year and having a winning season is what we are playing for this week.”
Dilley trailed 14-7 after the first and a 41-yard touchdown pass put the Wolves in a 20-7 hole at the break. The Wolves scored twice in the third on a nine-yard Aranda run and 16-yard rushing touchdown from Cano to cut it to 20-19 after failing on both conversion attempts.
George West would add a 21-yard touchdown run to extend their lead to 26-19 going into the fourth.
Aranda would turn the tide as he scored on a 97-yard touchdown run, one of the longest in school history to cut it to 26-25. Coach Silva elected to go for two following the score and succeeded as the Wolves went up 27-26. The defense held on from there to secure the team’s fifth win of the season.
Cano finished eight of 13 passing for 155 yards and accounted for 101 yards on the ground on 22 carries and a pair of scores.
Aranda led all rushers with 178 yards on 16 carries and two scores. Derik Garcia also tallied 108 yards receiving on six receptions.
Dilley would finish with 446 yards of offense and 18 first downs.
Defensively, Charles Morales led the team with 12 tackles, including two for a loss. Aranda and Clay Tom Hurt were both in on nine tackles and one for a loss apiece. Santiago Reyna added eight tackles including two for a loss while Jonavyn Gonzalez tallied eight tackles and one for a loss. Aiden Gonzalez finished with seven tackles and one for a loss.
The Wolves will look to make it two straight wins this week as they hit the road to close out the season at 3-6 Nixon-Smiley. The Mustangs have lost four of their last five games but are coming off a 34-33 win over Karnes City.
