Wednesday, October 28, 2009 • Posted October 28, 2009

On October 15th, the 7th grade Punchers faced a tough opponent in the Winters Blizzards. The Punchers fell behind on the opening kickoff and were never able to recover. The defense came up with some big stops in the 1st half behind the play of Kyle Zavala and Uli Alvarez, but the offense was never able to get a sustained drive going. The Punchers fought hard to keep it a one score game until deep in the 2nd half before Winters scored on a 4th and 1 play followed by another 4th down touchdown on a half-back pass.

On October 22nd, the 7th grade Punchers traveled to San Saba looking to finish their season off on a high note. They walked away with a 28-6 victory. Eduardo Villareal scored on two big running plays. Riley Owen scored on a short run after carrying numerous Dillo defenders two plays earlier on a big 3rd down conversion. Miguel Castillo also scored for the Punchers on a QB run. Defensively for the Punchers, Wyatt Burdett made a crucial goal line interception as the Dillos were knocking on the door as the 1st half expired. Ryan Wartenbach also had an interception to keep the Dillos from scoring late in the 4th quarter to ice the game.
