Despite second half surge, Wolves can’t catch Wildcats

Article Image Alt Text


In a tale of two halves, Dilley's second half effort would have been enough to win any game, unfortunately, the team surrendered 16 first half points and could not overcome the deficit in a 16-12 loss to Carrizo Springs in the season opener last Friday at Gosch Field.

“Our offense is beginning to build some momentum and we saw a lot of glimpses of great things to come,” DHS AD and Head Football Coach Lamar Rodriguez said. “The offensive line was led by seniors Anthony Saavedra, Dustin Dominguez and Rene Alvarez, junior Chris Umscheid and sophomore Gabe Tijerina as they commanded the line for Carlos Gonzales, Christian Aranda and Jacent Cantu.

“Kaden Vega also got in on the offensive line action. In the first half, we rushed 15 times to gain 71 yards, averaging a respectable 4.7 yards per carry, but the second half is really where the pride of the Wolves started to show as the offense rushed ten times, gaining 172 yards and averaging a dominant 17.2 yards per carry.

“The Wolves put up an outstanding 250-plus yards of total offense, 142 of those yards came from our workhorse Carlos Gonzales,” the coach said. “With his biggest play being an 81-yard rushing touchdown.”
