Stockdale 26
Dilley 41

DILLEY -- Brahma Head Coach Josh West knew his football team’s first district game was going to be a difficult challenge. On the road in Dilley to start things off is no one’s idea of an ideal situation, but the Brahmas gave a good effort en route to a 41-26 loss.

The Wolves exploited Stockdale through the air, as Dilley completed 18 of 24 passes for 344 yards and four touchdowns through the air. The Wolves added another two scores on the ground.

Dilley’s first touchdown of the game came on a 54-yard passing play from Leo Garcia to Desmond Lozano with 2:45 left to play in the first. The Brahmas answered the score early in the second, though, as senior running back Matt Valadez capped off a Stockdale drive with a 9-yard run across the goal line. A conversion attempt failed, and Dilley maintained a 7-6 advantage.

Less than two minutes later, the Wolves scored on another passing play, this time from 31 yards out. The kick was good, and the lead was 14-6 for Dilley.

Stockdale scored its second touchdown of the night with less than a minute to play in the half as Valadez found a hole in the Dilley defense and raced 28 yards for the score. Another failed conversion attempt left the score at 14-12 at halftime.

The back-and-forth continued early in the third quarter as Dilley scored on a 2-yard run to take a 21-12 advantage. Valadez and the Brahmas fired right back once again, though, as he took the ball from the Stockdale 44-yard line and sprinted 56 yards for the touchdown. Brahma quarterback Jacob Cardenas then connected with Gage Haley for a 2-point conversion, and the score was 21-20 in favor of Dilley.

Late in the third, Dilley scored on a 49-yard passing play, and then put up 7 more points with an 18-yard pass and kick at the 5:39 mark of the fourth quarter. With less than six minutes to play, the Brahmas found themselves in a 34-20 hole.

The Brahmas immediately responded with an aerial touchdown of their own, as Cardenas and Haley hooked up from 37 yards out. The point-after attempt was no good, and the score stood at 34-26. Stockdale did what it could to get the ball back, but the Wolves put things out of reach with 1:05 to play in the game as Jeremy Herrera scored on a 19-yard running play. The extra point was good, and the final score stood at 41-26 in favor of the Wolves.

The end result was not what the Brahmas were hoping for, but there were many good things to come out of the game, and will help Stockdale moving forward. Valadez had an incredible game for Stockdale, carrying the ball 35 times for a whopping 300 yards and three touchdowns. Haley ran seven times for 55 yards, and Cardenas ran twice for 8 yards.

Cardenas completed four passes for 63 yards, hitting Haley two times for 44 yards, Valadez once for 14 yards, and Tristan Marquez once more for 5. Valadez also threw one pass, completing his throw to Haley for 8 yards.

The loss drops the Brahmas to 1-3 on the year, and the team is now 0-1 in district play. Stockdale will be at home this Friday at 7:30 p.m. as it hosts the 0-4 Natalia Mustangs.
