Dilley 21
Nixon-Smiley 14

NIXON -- It was another tough Homecoming game for the Nixon-Smiley Mustangs this year, as the Dilley Wolves came into town to disrupt the festivities.

Early in the first quarter of play, Dilley got the scoring under way with a 6-yard run into the end zone. The Wolves then added a pair of passing touchdowns in the second quarter to make it a 21-0 game at the break.

Down by three touchdowns, it wasn’t the most joyous of halftimes for Nixon-Smiley, but the Homecoming activities served as a pick-me-up for all involved.

In the third quarter of play, the Mustangs got on the board with a 6-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Nick Pena to receiver Tristan Newman. Eduardo Tovar booted the extra point, and the score was 21-7 with 4:06 remaining in the third.

Early in the fourth quarter, the Mustangs added to their total with another passing touchdown, this time from 2 yards out as Pena connected with Homecoming King Garrett Earlywine for the score. Tovar kicked the extra point, and the score was 21-14, with more than nine minutes still remaining in the game. There was plenty of time for the Mustangs, but there wasn’t quite enough in the tanks.

Nixon-Smiley gave a good effort, but couldn’t find the end zone again in the game. The Mustang defense played a great second half, keeping the Wolves from scoring, though the 21 first-half points were more than enough for the Dilley victory.

Despite the loss, there are still several good things happening with the Mustang football team, and those are the things Nixon-Smiley will need to focus on this week as the team prepares for a big rival.

Pena did complete 3 of 8 passes for 16 yards and two touchdowns last Friday, but he was also intercepted three times. Earlywine caught two passes for 10 yards and a touchdown, and Newman caught a pass for 6 yards and the other Mustang touchdown. Kevin Martinez led the Mustang running game with 40 yards on eight carries, while Jared Van Auken had 34 yards on 15 carries. Newman ran three times for 15 yards and Jordan Martinez had six carries for 14 yards.

Defensively, Earlywine led the team with 10 tackles on the night. Kevin Martinez had eight tackles and two forced fumbles on the night, and Logan McMain had four tackles with a fumble recovery. Newman had two tackles and an interception for Nixon-Smiley. Other defensive notables are Justin Ramos, Michael Scarbrough, Sam Moore, and Coleton Trammell.

The loss drops the Mustangs to 3-2 on the year, and 1-1 in district play. Nixon-Smiley will make the short trip down U.S. 87 to Stockdale this Friday night, to face the Brahmas in a heated rivalry game.

Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. at Bobby Russell Field.
