Return to Menu

The Loboes have Friday night off this week, however the Grandfalls
Cowboys are set to open district against Balmorhea.

Both teams put their unbeaten records on the line tomorrow night.

Balmorhea comes into this game fresh off a 52-7 victory over Marathon
that only lasted three quarters due to the 45-point rule. The victory
moves the Bears to 4-0 overall.

Grandfalls is ready for the challenge. The Cowboys did quite a number on
Midland Trinity Friday night as the 68-6 game ended at half time.

Balmorhea is coming with some bad boys. Running backs Roger Lopez and
Arturo Miranda along with quarterback Rhyne Zane, plan to make it a long
night for the Cowboys.

The week before, Lopez had a 72-yard touchdown run; a 24-yard
interception for a touchdown; and ran in a blocked punt for a touchdown.

Miranda had a 3 and a 1-yard touchdown. Zane had a 48-yard interception
for a touchdown.

According to the numbers, the Bears capitalize on the mistakes of their
opponents, as well as move the ball down the field.

Grandfalls has some big dogs of their own.

Last week John Richardson had a 15-yard touchdown pass; Danny Santiago
had a 5-yard touchdown pass; Roy Vasquez had 65 and 11-yard runs both
for touchdowns.

The players to keep an eye on Friday night, however, are Alfonso Marquez
and Corey Moore.

Marquez and Moore both ran, passed and received for touchdown in last
weeks game.

Marquez had a 4-yard and 45-yard touchdown run, received a 45-yard
touchdown pass, threw a 48-yard touchdown pass and returned an
interception 63-yards.

total of 65-yards and received a 48-yard touchdown pass.

Return to Menu

The Lady Loboes are keeping up the pace as they continue to fly through
district 3 3A.

The gals had little trouble fighting past Fabens Saturday 15-12, 15-13.

Sarah Molina did a great job subing for Leah," said Coach Martina
Carrillo. "We played more of a defensive game, and had 15 match blocks.

The Ladies did well adjusting to playing without Johnson and dealing
with the large out of town crowds.

"I was kind of nervous, but I didn't feel any pressure," said Molina.

"It makes me want to score more," said Sarah Carol who had 13 match
points, "when the crowd is yelling, trying to mess me up and I score a
point and they hush all of a sudden.

If the Lady Loboes win these five road games, they'll have the last five
at home where they are 9-0 overall.

The Lady Loboes remain perfect as they passed by Presidio 15-8, 15-12.

"We still need to play on our level physically, but it is critical to
know how to play a mental game" commented Coach Carrillo. "We have three
consecutive out of town matches, and it's imperative to be tough

The Ladies played well. Randy Brandon had four kills; Carrell had six
kills, six digs and seven assists; Tracie Jasso had two kills and five
assists; Shayla Terry had nine service points, one ace and three digs:
Molina had three service points, three aces and seven digs.

"I'm proud of this years team," commented Coach Carrillo, "we don't rely
on one specific team member to do the job. It's the girls off the court,
the defensive specialists, the hitters, the setters, the coaches and the
fans that make this team "click."
