Mustangs roll on, drop Wolves in thriller 20-17

By MANUEL AZOCAR III Sports Editor

 

A questionable call down the stretch proved costly for Dilley as the Wolves' game-winning score was nullified by a penalty and Dilley eventually dropped a 20-17 decision to the Natalia Mustangs last Friday, November 3.

 

The return of quarterback Noe Garcia sparked the Wolves but it was not enough to stop a determined Natalia Mustangs squad. “Both teams played their heart out and it is a travesty that the officials decided the outcome on a horrible call,” DHS AD and Head Football Coach Manny Martinez said.

 

“We scored the game-winning touchdown with less than a minute left and we are flagged because our tackle is not on the line. The video shows otherwise.

Pearsall junior cross country runner Devin Robles finished 13th in a field of over 150 runners to earn a spot on the All-State Team during competition at the 2017 UIL Cross Country State Championship in Round Rock on Saturday, November 4. “This weekend proved to be an exciting and new experience for first time cross country state qualifier, Devin Robles,” PHS CC Coach Jose Olvera said. “His goal at the beginning of the year was to make it to state and he worked hard all season.

JAVELINAS HOG-TIED

Mavericks rally, top Crystal City 21-18 in overtime thriller.

BY MANUEL AZOCAR III

Billed as a district showdown of two of the league's front-runners, Friday's clash between the Pearsall Mavericks and Crystal City Javelinas lived up to the hype as Pearsall rallied from an 18-3 deficit to claim a 21-18 overtime victory on Homecoming night.

 

Pearsall erased three years worth of frustration at the hands of the Javelinas, having lost three straight in the series. For the better part of three quarters, last Friday's game seemed to be headed down the same road.

Quick start buries Lady Mavs in return to volleyball playoffs.

BY MANUEL AZOCAR III

Pearsall’s return to the volleyball playoffs was short-lived as the Lady Mavs dropped a three-set bi-district decision to Pleasanton Monday evening, October 30 at San Antonio’s Southwest Legacy High School.

The Lady Mavs’ inexperienced showed as miscues, along with a Lady Eagles squad that took advantage of those errors, proved too much to overcome in the 25-10, 25-17, 25-14 sweep.

For a second straight week Pearsall took care of business early in collecting another win and has raced to a 7-0 mark this season, setting up a huge district clash with Crystal City this Friday for Homecoming.

 

The Javelinas have been a thorn in the Mavs' side the last three years, winning three straight in the series and costing Pearsall playoff seeding each season. The two have been on a collision course this year as Pearsall is unbeaten while the Javelinas enter the contest with a 6-1 mark. Their only blemish, a 31-20 loss to San Antonio Southside.

MAVS GAG AGGIES

By MANUEL AZOCAR III Sports Editor

 

Pearsall improved to 6-0 this season with a lopsided 35-0 win over the Poteet Aggies last Friday in the District 14-4A opener for both teams. Oscar Cubriel ran for 160 yards and three touchdowns while the Maverick defense was stellar once again in pitching a shutout and allowing the Aggies positive yardage on only two possessions.

 

The defense has now allowed a mere 13 points over the last three games. Although Pearsall only led 14-0 at the half, the outcome never seemed in doubt as the defense kept Poteet locked down and the offense continually moved the ball on the ground.
