Louise thwarts D’Hanis comeback

Seguin -- Just as the D’Hanis Cowboys made things interesting Friday night, Nov. 21, Louise answered by putting the game out of reach.

The Hornets responded to a D’Hanis touchdown midway through the fourth period, by scoring one of their own with 2:32 left to play, sealing the 20-6 area playoff win over the Cowboys.

Louise will now advance to the regional semifinals, where they’ll take on unbeaten Bremond in Bastrop this Friday, Nov. 28.

The Cowboys end the year as champions of District 15-AA-II, with an 8-3 record.

Neither team could dent the scoreboard for the better part of two periods last Friday at Texas Lutheran University’s Bulldog Stadium. But the Hornets finally broke the ice just before intermission. An eight-yard pass from Eric Lucio to Carlos Garcia put Louise on the board with just 11 seconds left until halftime. Ismael Mendez added the PAT for a 7-0 halftime lead.

With 3:41 left in the third, Lucio threw his second TD pass of the night, a 13-yard strike to Jase Bill, to give the Hornets a 13-0 lead.

Louise had the ball deep in its own end of the field midway through the final period, but fumbled a lateral pass at the 5-yard line.

That set up the Cowboys’ only score, but it took until fourth down, when Homer Rivera tossed a five-yard score to Alex Del Hierro.

The conversion pass was no good, leaving the score at 13-6 with 4:50 still to play.

Louise, however, responded two minutes later, as Lucio fired his third scoring pass of the game, a 58-yard strike to Bill for the insurance TD with 2:32 left.

Although D’Hanis held a slight lead in first downs, the Hornets had a big advantage in total yardage, outgaining the Cowboys, 328-178.
