BEARS LOWER THE BOOM

By MANUEL AZOCAR III

 

Pearsall took on its biggest challenge of the season last Friday as they traveled to Bear Country to take on #9 state-ranked La Vernia and came home on the short end of a 65-0 decision. La Vernia scored early and often as they quickly put the game out of reach. Hampered by injuries at several positions in their final tune-up prior to district play, Pearsall also opted to sit or limit players, as well. “It was kind of the imperfect storm for us,” Pearsall AD and Head Football Coach Joseph Rivera said. “A good team kind of shell-shocked us early and it rolled down hill quickly.

Pearsall CC preps for district at Bandera meet

Pearsall opted to run Saturday at Bandera in an effort to make up for the cancelled Round Rock McNeil Invitational Cross Country Meet, Devin Robles responded by taking first overall. “This meet was to replace the McNeil meet that was cancelled, due to bad weather,” PHS Cross Country Coach Jose Olvera said.

“This meet provided good challenges with the course and was a good opportunity for improvement. “Only part of the team traveled to Bandera, however, due to injury, we were missing one of our key female runners. I was proud of the effort by our other two top runners, as the competition was elevated at this meet. Robles finished first overall while freshman Zaine Leal was behind him in 13th place

Eagles’ aerial attack grounds Mavericks

By MANUEL AZOCAR III
Sports Editor

 

Pleasanton scored early to take a big lead, then capitalized on four second-half Pearsall turnovers to run away with a 35-7 non-district win last Friday at Mack Laxson Field.

 

Pearsall cut the margin to 21-7 at the half and flirted with making it a one-score game in the third but could not capitalize on two promising drives in the stanza to get any closer.

 

“When you play good teams, little mistakes are magnified,” PHS AD and Head Football Coach Joseph Rivera said. “There's usually about eight to twelve plays that change the outcome of the game and unfortunately those eight to twelve plays were alot of our own doing.

INDIAN AIR RAID

Jourdanton passing attack baffles Wolves in lopsided non-district loss.

Weather rained on Dilley's parade as the Wolves dropped a 34-6 decision to Jourdanton after lightning forced the teams to reschedule their Friday night  non-district football contest to Saturday at noon in Atascosa County.

The Wolves did not respond well to the change of date and venue as the team was uncharacteristicly routed by the Indians.

Athletic Director and Head Football Coach Manny Martinez is hoping this week's rivalry game against Cotulla sparks the Wolves and helps end a two-game skid.
