DILLEY WOLVES FOOTBALL
Seven turnovers plague Wolves in second straight loss.
San Antonio Christian broke open a close contest with a 13-point fourth quarter as the Lions pulled away for a 29-13 win over Dilley last Friday in San Antonio.
DHS AD and Head Football Coach David Silva said his defense has been playing well but seven turnovers at crucial moments in the game proved disastrous for the Wolves.
“Our defense is playing tremendous,” he said. “Seven turnovers at key times changed the momentum in Christian’s favor. The turnovers kept our defense on the field a lot.”
The coach noted that the Lion’s passing attack, which accounted for 134 yards, is something the Wolves are not likely to see again this season.
“SAC’s passing attack is one we won’t see again all year,” he said. “We still saw lots of improvement on the special teams. With this young group, we just gotta keep learning and get ready for district play.
This doesn’t change anything, our goal this year is playoffs.”
Dilley came out of the gates quickly, taking a 7-0 lead on Colton Ward’s seven-yard scoring run in the first.
Christian answered with a pair of five-yard touchdown runs to take a 16-7 lead going into the second.
The Wolves answered in the third and make it a game again as Esai Lozano hauled in an 84-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Seth Cano. It would be as close as Dilley would get.
Cano went six of 11 passing for Dilley with a touchdown and two interceptions and also rushed for 21 yards.
Ward added 20 yards on ten carries with a touchdown.
The Wolves finished with 148 yards of offense and seven first downs while Christian tallied 211 yards and 13 first downs. Dilley was hampered on third down, converting only one of nine attempts and omly one of three on fourth down. The Wolves also lost four fumbles and were intercepted twice.
Sitting at 0-2, the Wolves will have little time to dwell on the loss as long-time rivals Cotulla come to town this week fresh off their first loss of the season to Bandera. Dilley won the rivalry contest a year ago and will be looking for a repeat to secure their first win of 2022. Game time is 7:30 p.m. at Gosch Field.
