After recurring lightning forced Jourdanton football’s game at Dilley for Sept. 7 to Jourdanton on Sept. 8, the Indians (2-0) rocked the Cowboys with a big passing game en route to a 34-6 win.

“Our receivers got a good ability to get balls. Cole {Andrus] threw the ball pretty accurately today. I felt we were in position with the passing game,” said Jourdanton head coach Darrell Andrus.

Jarel Lilly caught an 11-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter.

In the last minute of the second quarter, Cole Andrus arced a 30-yard pass to Lilly and then a 25-yard touchdown pass to Brett Berg to send his team into halftime with a 20-0 lead.

Lilly’s 33-yard catch in the third quarter set up a touchdown run by Rico Martinez.

Andrus’ 45-yard touchdown pass to Jacob Reyna was his fifth of the day of 25 or more yards.

Jourdanton held Dilley to 156 yards of offense after holding Poteet to 174 in Week 1. Coach Darrell Andrus attributed his team’s strong defensive play to the depth and energy following a late Friday night.

 

 

“It was a hard-fought game we needed to improve and I’m glad we got it in. I think it made us both better for our district competition,” he said.

Jourdanton’s Sept. 14 home game at 7:30 p.m. against La Pryor (2-0) is parents night.
