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.
