Jourdanton and Pleasanton are dominating their opponents in initial startup games.
The JHS Indians have allowed only six points in two games. They had wins over Poteet, 29-0, and Dilley, 34-6. Due to lightning and stormy weather, the Friday night game in Dilley was moved to Jourdanton, Saturday, Sept. 8. It was played at 12 p.m. with the plan to play in Dilley next year.
“I was glad we were able to adjust the schedule to play on Saturday,” said JHS Coach Darrel Andrus. “This time of year it is critical for your players to get game reps in to prepare for district play.”
In two games, JHS sophomore quarterback Cole Andrus has gone 25- 39, for 450 yards, passing for seven touchdowns with one interception.
Pleasanton also won its initial games against San Antonio Edison, 42-15, and San Antonio Lanier, 30-0. In those two encounters, Pleasanton reserves took over about midway in the fourth quarter.
In San Antonio Express offensive statistics for the area, 6A schools on down, it showed two Pleasanton athletes having superior stats.
