Lions leash Bulldogs
Dublin Lions Head Coach Bob Cervetto said that Friday’s 21-12 victory against the Bangs Bulldogs started out in a frenzy.
“We came out strong and started fast,” he said.
When Hagen Huffman made a strong run in the beginning of the game, he reportedly went to Cervetto to boast the blocking of his teammates.
“He said, ‘The guys did a great job,’” Cervetto related. “‘There was nobody near me.’”
Colten Couch also had a strong showing in the home victory carrying two of the touchdowns into the endzone in receiving, one of which was a stand-out 63 yard pass to him from quarterback Cy Wing which he ran for a score with three Bangs players trailing behind.
Wing himself rushed the other TD in an 8-yard play.
Cervetto said they’ve been reviewing the film to improve every facet of the game. This includes keeping the same momentum at the beginning of the game as the end- an important lesson following a match in which their opponent didn’t score until the fourth quarter.
“I’m reminding the guys that every game is an endurance test- a marathon,” Cervetto said.
The Lions are primed for a homecoming fight against the Breckenridge Buckaroos this Friday at 7:30 p.m.
Cervetto said Breckenridge is entering the fray battle-tested with linemen on both defense and offense that are solid.
He expects that Lions fans will get a great show to accompany all the homecoming excitement and the 3-1 Lions will continue to improve for district.
“Our goal is to play the best football we can to get to ‘the dance,’” he said.
