Lions out-roar Tigers

Dublin outmaneuvered Hico on Friday night, taking a 45-28 victory in the season opener. 

Hico and Dublin open the season together every year, usually in Stephenville, but it has been unusual in recent history for Dublin to claim the W. This season Dublin ran away with the win in Hico’s stadium. 

That’s due in large part to leadership from quarterback and linebacker junior Cy Wing, who passed for 254 yards in the game. 

Athlete of the Week Frankie Quintero, who added 66 yards receiving, also set the Lions up for the win by answering Hico’s first seven points with an 11-yard fumble return touchdown. Then Gabe Renteria kicked the first of his 4 extra points. 

“Every time we had a little adversity, the kids made something positive happen,” head coach Bob Cervetto said.

Not only did Renteria kick 100 percent on extra points, he also nailed a solid 42-yard field goal.

Green and Gold face off

Dublin’s football players donned pads for the first time on Saturday for Dublin’s Green and Gold scrimmage. 

Head Coach Bob Cervetto said there’s still a long road of practice and work ahead, but he thinks it was a great start.

“It’s really neat to see the excitement,” Cervetto said. 

On Friday, Aug. 17, the varsity team will play in Venus at 7 p.m., after the JV at 6.

The freshmen will play in Stephenville at 3:45 p.m.

On Aug. 24, Dublin will host Clyde in a scrimmage freshmen at 5, JV at 6 and varsity at 7 p.m. It’s designated as “Our Day to Shine,” so ticket proceeds will benefit the Texas High School Coaches Association benevolent fund.

She added that the team defeated Brownwood and played well against Abilene Wylie. 

They also put down district opponents Eastland, Comanche, Bangs and Early. 

The team’s success especially impressed her because they dealt with so many injuries; as many as four of the 11 girls were injured at one point. 

“They have really showed how much depth with will have going into the season,” Lewis said. 

Camry Porter and Yakelin Morantes played libero. Kaylee Smith, Lessly Robles and Addison Stout were the outside hitters. Bailey Noel and Maeleigh Geijsel played at middle hitter. Kylie Curtoys and Jordyn Ricks were the setters. Brooklynn Johnson and Isabel Bustamante were defensive specialists and played on the right side.
