DíHanis early onslaught too much for Rocksprings

Rocksprings -- Scoring the first five times they had the ball Friday, Oct. 17, the DíHanis Cowboys rolled to a decisive 47-14 win over Rocksprings at Angora Stadium.

The win takes the Cowboys to 5-2 for the season, and 2-0 in the District 15-AA-II race. DíHanis is currently alone atop the district standings, after La Pryor fell to the upset-minded Leakey Eagles, 44-42 on Friday.

DíHanis hosts Leakey this Saturday, Oct. 25, in a 7:30 p.m. game at Butch Woolls Stadium.

Friday, the Cowboys put together a balanced rushing attack against the Angoras with 255 yards on 31 carries (an average of better than eight yards a pop), and picking up 21 first downs. For the night, DíHanis had six different running backs -- Robert Rugh, John Rodriguez, Mitchell Hutto, Christian Tapia, Tyson Zinsmeyer and Homer Rivera -- rush for at least 20 yards.

The Cowboys didnít take long to get started, with John Rodriguez fielding the opening kickoff at the 23-yard line and returning it 77 yards for a touchdown.

Rodriguez would add two more TD runs, from three yards and 19 yards, before the first period ended. That went along with a 12-yard scoring keeper by Robert Rugh. Rodriguez and Homer Rivera each had a two-point run in the period.

At the end of one quarter, the Cowboys had already built a 28-0 lead.

Less than two minutes into the second quarter, Christian Tapia added a 14-yard TD run. The 34-0 lead stood until halftime.

Midway through the third quarter, Rugh, who finished with a team-high 84 rushing yards on nine carries, scored from nine yards away. Rivera added the kick for a 41-0 lead.

Stephen Rugh scored DíHanisí final TD on a two-yard run with 9:03 left to play.

Rockspringsí 14 points all came courtesy of the same combination. Tony Sanchez passed to Jonathon Reyna for a touchdown of 17 yards in the third period and 10 yards for another with 3:31 left in the game. The two also connected on a two-point conversion after the second Angora TD.

The Cowboy defense was also active on Friday, with pass interceptions from Rodriguez, Robert Rugh and Alex Del Hierro.
