Alex Del Hierro makes the grab on a fourth quarter touchdown pass from Homer Rivera in the Cowboys’ game against Ingram last Friday. After taking this coming weekend off, the Cowboys will go to Poteet on Oct. 3.

 

Ingram builds big lead, cruises past Cowboys

The D’Hanis Cowboys sputtered from the start of last Friday’s game, falling into a big hole against 3A Ingram, before rallying to make the final score a more respectable 41-26.

D’Hanis, now 2-2 on the season, will head into its open date this weekend. The Cowboys will resume action on Friday, Oct. 3, when they travel to visit 4A Poteet in a 7:30 p.m. game.

After Ingram had built its 28-0 lead, the Cowboys finally got on the board late in the second quarter when John Rodriguez scored from a yard out. Homer Rivera ran in the conversion.

The 20-point margin didn’t hold up till halftime, however. Ingram’s Benjamin Rae, who already had a 77-yard interception return for a score to his credit, returned the Cowboys’ ensuing kickoff 77 yards for a score, and a 35-8 halftime lead for the Warriors.

Midway through the third period, the Cowboys got a 10-yard touchdown pass from Robert Rugh to Alex Del Hierro, cutting the gap to 35-14.

Ingram answered two minutes later with a drive to the endzone, capped by a one-yard TD keeper for Keaun Valverde. The Warriors’ extra point missed.

D’Hanis scored twice in the fourth period, on a pair of TD passes from Homer Rivera. He threw to Del Hierro for a 12-yard score with four minutes to play. Then after taking possession at their own 21 with a minute left, the Cowboys drove 79 yards to the endzone, capped by Rivera’s second TD pass of the quarter. This time, he found Rodriguez for a 10-yard strike.

In limited time on the field, Rivera was 8-of-10 passing, for 135 yards and two touchdowns. Starting QB Robert Rugh was also over the 100-yard mark in the air, with 107 passing yards.

Stephen Rugh was the Cowboys’ leading receiver, with six catches for 148 yards.

Ingram’s first score of the night came with a minute left in the first period, on a five-yard run by Jacob Alzaldua, the game’s leading rusher with 104 yards on 14 attempts. Luis Melendez was 5-of-6 on Ingram PATs.

Things began to happen in rapid succession for Ingram in the second period, starting with Rae’s pick-six, which came two minutes into the quarter. Valverde added a 56-yard rushing TD moments later, and just a minute later, Valverde passed to Rae for another score, this time from 18 yards out.
