Rafa Garcia records a first-half sack of the St. Gerard quarterback Friday night, in the Cowboys’ 33-7 non-district win. D’Hanis will host Ingram this Friday -- correct, Friday -- in a 7:30 p.m. contest at Butch Woolls Stadium.

 

Cowboys start fast, cruise over Royals

San Antonio -- Wasting little time getting started, the D’Hanis Cowboys put two quick touchdowns on the board, and coasted to a solid, 33-7 win over St. Gerard Friday evening, Sept. 12.

Christian Tapia, who logged 100 total yards, had 95 of those on the ground, scoring three touchdowns for D’Hanis.

The Cowboys, now 2-1 on the year, will return home this weekend, playing a rare Friday night home game against the Ingram Warriors, also 2-1. The 7:30 p.m. game is on Friday, Sept. 19, instead of the usual Saturday night, to avoid a conflict with the Saturday night Medina County Fair Dance in Hondo.

It took D’Hanis less than a half-minute to get on the board last Friday. On the first play from scrimmage, quarterback Robert Rugh found Homer Rivera for a 61-yard TD strike and a 6-0 lead.

Just two minutes later, the Cowboys were back in business, as Christian Tapia went into the endzone for the first of his three touchdowns. John Rodriguez ran in the two-point conversion for a 14-0 lead with 9:16 still to play in the first quarter.

The score stayed at that margin for most of the rest of the half, until the Royals came up with their biggest play, intercepting a Cowboy pass and returning it 80 yards for a touchdown, cutting the lead in half with 1:52 left in the half.

The Cowboys still had time to put one more score on the board before the break. They drove deep into St. Gerard territory, where Mitchell Hutto took it the final 12 yards for the score with 34 seconds left. The extra point missed for the second time, leaving the halftime score at 20-7.

The Cowboys added two more TDs on their first two possessions of the second half. Both came from Tapia, who took it to the endzone from seven and ten yards. Justin Constancia added the Cowboys’ extra point after their fifth score, making it 33-7 with 5:23 left in the third.

Constancia had a fumble recovery for D’Hanis, as did Tyson Zinsmeyer. Case Wooton also added an interception for the DHS defense.

Robert Rugh threw for 143 yards in the Cowboys’ win.
