Owls fend off Wolves, win bi-district match 22-8

BI-DISTRICT PLAYOFFS

Dilley nearly upended unbeaten Odem last week, falling just short of what would have been one of the bigger upsets in the first round of the playoffs Friday, November 16 in Freer.

Odem held off the Wolves to claim a 22-8 bi-district decision and advance to the second round of the playoffs.

“We almost pulled off one of the biggest upsets in the playoffs,” DHS AD and Head Football Coach Manny Martinez said. “We had a touchdown not counted where Shiloh Guerra was clearly in the endzone, that would have tied the game just before halftime.

Wolves run wild, face Odem Owls in playoff opener

By MANUEL AZOCAR III

 

Projected to be a driving force for the Dilley offense this season, running back Enrique Garza exploded for his best game precisely when the Wolves needed it. He accounted for 36 points in Dilley's 50-6 rout of Nixon-Smiley in the regular season finale last Friday at Gosch Field.

 

The win secured the fourth and final playoff spot in District 15-3A, Division II for the Wolves and marked their sixth straight trip to the postseason. The team has qualified for the playoffs in 14 of the last 16 years, dating back to 2002.

 

“We came into the game controlling our playoff destiny,” DHS AD and Head Football Coach Manny Martinez said. “I asked our players to kick the door down and not give Nixon-Smiley any hope and we came out and set the tone right away.

MISSED OPPORTUNITIES

By MANUEL AZOCAR III

 

In a year of close calls and narrow misses, Pearsall suffered through yet another missed opportunity last Friday, dropping a 21-6 decision to Devine in district action.

 

The Mavericks struck first and had numerous opportunities but were likewise their own worst enemies, allowing penalties and turnovers to ultimately cost them the game.

 

“Football is a game of inches and won off of limiting mistakes and taking advantage of your opponents mistakes,” PHS AD and Head Football Coach Joseph Rivera said. “We were inches away from completing some big time passes that would have changed the outcome of the game, a few blocks away from breaking out a few long runs, and a few costly penalties in crucial times that hurt us.
