DILLEY WOLVES FOOTBALL
Dilley closed out its 2022 football season with a 40-20 loss to Karnes City on Friday, October 28.
The Wolves ended the year on a four game losing streak and went 1-5 in District 15-3A, Division II to finish sixth in the standings.
“We came out flat in the first half,” DHS Athletic Director and Head Football Coach David Silva said. “We moved the ball well, we just couldn’t finish drives. We played much better in the second half.
“We will have a great nucleus coming back and a good young junior varsity squad that will be ready for Friday nights.”
The Wolves were hampered by a tough first half and found themselves down 27-0 before they cracked the scoreboard.
Esai Lozano hauled in a 17-yard touchdown pass from Seth Cano as Dilley ended the shutout and cut into the margin to make it 27-6 in the second quarter.
