Coyotes defeat Oakwood, move on to Semi-Finals

Our Richland Springs Coyotes improved to (11-0) on the season after defeating the Oakwood Panthers 72-12 at Hico’s Tiger Stadium. This was a Class 1A Division II Region IV Championship rematch from last year.

The night was filled with a continuous heavy mist, a little fog, and a Coyote team that was “on point”! We had our most dominate game of the year to date. It’s always a good thing to be peaking at this point of the season!

Richland Springs only allowed Oakwood 157 yards of total offense and created a couple of turnovers that paid dividends. Jadeyn Bryant was credited for an early game safety after sacking the quarterback deep in the end zone. Wade Appleton had a pick six late in the game. Lane Shannon lead all tacklers this week with 6.5, followed by 5 from Massiah Clarady, 5 from Landon Burkhart, 4 from Jadeyn Bryant, 3.5 from T. J. Grant, and Zane Capps with 3.

Dillos advance to 4th round of playoffs

The Armadillo football team once again showed us all just why they are one of the top teams of the 2019 2A football season. San Saba (13-0) took down the Rivercrest Blue Jays (11-2) 57 to 14 last Friday night.

The Blue Jays led the game 6-0 after the 1st quarter and looked like they were going to give the Dillos a run for their money. The only run that happened the next three quarters was San Saba as they amassed 545 yards on the ground and rushed for 7 touchdowns.

San Saba will face the Eagles from Valley View (11-2) next Friday night in Mineral Wells. Although we have been the home team in our previous games, we will be visitors when we face Valley View.
