Center Point stuggled against Ingram senior Josh Deltoro, who struck out 11 batters and gave up a lone run on an rbI single by Velasco in the seventh inning. Deltoro surrendered just one hit on the night in what turned out to be a pitching duel. Center Point had its chances. the Pirates advanced runners to second

Center Point loaded the bases with one out in the fifth, but Deltoro again worked his way out of trouble with a strikeout and a force out at home to keep the Pirates off the board. “that was our first time out of the box, and we haven’t seen live hitting,” Center Point coach bubba Walters said. “It’s just going to be a process. “We had 13 strikeout but we also hit or walked 14 batters,” Walters said of his team’s pitching. “When we’re around the plate we’re oK, but there were times when we weren’t near the plate. I saw some good things. We didn’t make any errors. When we’re around the plate the pitching looked good, but when we missed, we missed bad.” the Pirates (0-1) were scheduled to play at texas Military Institute tuesday and will begin tournament action later this week in Ingram.

Tivy Football Popisil’s 35-yard touchdown run up the middle with 1:54 left to play and a 2-point conversion gave champion a 25-16 lead, and the chargers were able to overcome a late touchdown catch by Ahrens — his third of the night — and a last-gasp tivy possession to knock off the Antlers 25-23 in a District 27-4A thriller at Antler Stadium. tivy sophomore cade Dyal threw all three scoring passes to Ahrens, including a 20-yarder with 1:14 Ahrens left, and the Antlers got the ball back one last time with eight seconds remaining, but a sack of Dyal by champion’s Sam van nest as time expired allowed the chargers to escape with the victory. Dyal finished the night 18-of-26 through the air for 230 yards and rushed for another 37, and Ahrens hauled in seven throws for 143 yards, but the Antlers gave up a pair of costly fourthquarter touchdowns. “this hurts. it’s a tough loss,” tivy coach David Jones said after watching his team drop to 1-2 in district play and 2-4 on the season. “the kids fought hard.

Another big test tivy battles Alamo heights Friday in more 27-4A action By S TuArT C unyuS Sports editor


ivy will have to rebound quickly from a tough District 27-4A loss to Boerne champion last week when the Antlers travel to San Antonio Friday to take on Alamo heights. Since dropping its first game to class 5A San Antonio o’connor, heights has reeled off five straight wins, including District 27-4A victories over Boerne champion (41-17), Seguin (53-41) and Kyle Lehman (42-35). the Mules are averaging 41 points and almost 600 yards per game behind an offensive attack led by 6-foot-3, 205-pound junior quarterback Dalton Banks. Banks has thrown for 1,317 yards and 10 touchdowns on 106 completions and is hitting on 63 percent of his passes with just two interceptions. he’s also a threat on the ground with 224 rushing yards and three tDs. Banks likes throwing to a number of receivers. Senior robert Schuler leads heights with 33 catches for 361 yards and five touchdowns, but the Mules have three other

definitely had a chance to win it and we just didn’t take advantage.” champion’s clayton hatfield and tivy’s Bradley Mitchell traded a pair of first quarter field goals, with hatfield’s covering 41 yards and Mitchell’s 35, to knot the score at 3-3 at the end of the quarter. Dyal and Ahrens hooked up for their first tD connection on the opening play of the second quarter, a 24-yard toss into the left corner of the end zone that Ahrens made one of his trademarked leaps to haul in. Mitchell’s extra-point kick gave tivy a 10-3 lead with 11:52 left until halftime. champion answered late in the quarter when sophomore quarterback Josh Green busted his way up the middle for a 5-yard scoring run, then tacked on a 2-point conversion plunge that sent the chargers into the break leading 11-10. tivy drove 57 yards on its opening possession of the second half, a sixplay series capped by a 16-yard touchdown pass from Dyal to Ahrens with 6:00 left in the third quarter, but the Antlers’ lead stayed at 16-10 after their 2-point try came up short. champion’s ryan McGovern fell on an Antler fumble late in the quarter, and the chargers capitalized Dyal seven plays later when Green bulled his way into the end zone from a yard out early in the fourth quarter, but Green’s 2-point pass was intercepted by tivy’s connor Gawryszewski to keep the chargers’ edge at 17-16. champion held tivy’s next two series in check, the latter forcing an Antler punt with 4:13 remaining. the change of possessions proved costly after Popisil capped a quick six-play, 84-yard drive with his 35-

receivers — Jake osborne, Scott uhl and christian Lalinde — with 200 or more yards in receptions. heights has shown a tendency to give up a lot of points defensively. in its past two games against Seguin and Lehman, the Mules

Sidelined three games by injury, Ahrens has 17 catches for 310 yards and four tDs since his return and is averaging 18 yards per catch.

Green then added a 2-point run to stretch champion’s advantage to 25-16. “i hate punting the ball, but with 4-1/2 minutes, punt ‘em down there with three timeouts,” Jones said. “our defense is good. We’re going to hold and get the ball back with plenty of time. Worst-case scenario we kick a field goal and go in. i didn’t think we wouldn’t have enough time to get it, but i never thought they’d score.” tivy fought back quickly. Dyal hit Ahrens for a 56-yard gain, then came back to him again for a 20-yard touchdown completion with 1:14 left, and Mitchell’s PAt kick cut the Antlers’ deficit to 25-23. tivy’s onside kick was recovered by champion’s Sebastian Garces, but the Antlers’ defense held the chargers to a 3-and-out, and tivy got the ball back with eight ticks left at its own 17yard line. Dyal immediately tried to hit tristan Smith down the right sideline, a play that picked up 15 yards after champion was flagged with an interference call, but van nest’s sack on the next snap ended the contest. “We fought hard,” Jones said. “A close game, you can look at four or five plays, and if the outcome of those four or five are different, the game’s different. the kids played

this year’s honorees were certainly deserving of that mantle. Demasco was a three-year AllDistrict and All-State volleyball player for tivy between 1996-98, as well as an All-District standout in basketball. After graduating in 1999, she went on to earn All-Big 12 honors as a volleyball star at texas tech. in 2002 she was chosen tech’s Female Student Athlete of the year. Demasco, who married her high school sweetheart tate Demasco, came from a storied Antler history. her mother, Kathy McGehee, was the first female inducted into tivy’s hall of Fame in 2008 after a stellar volleyball career of her own. “i had the privilege of being coached by my mom in middle school, and she’s not such a bad volleyball player herself,” Demasco said.

taylor, a 1983 tivy graduate, was a two-year state champion in the 1600-meter run as a junior and senior. he also placed second in the 800-meter run as a senior on the same day he won the 1600 title. taylor went on to an AllAmerican track career at the university of Arkansas before becoming an internal medical specialist in ohio. he is married with two children and enjoys playing guitar with Docs that rock. “i would like to thank all my coaches, with a special recognition to coach charlie Dobbs,” taylor said. “i pretty much owe you all my success. you are the definition of ‘tivy Fight never Dies.’” tivy’s 1950 football team posted an 8-2 record and finished the season ranked 10th in the state of texas in the final year before schools were divided up by classifications. the 1950 Antlers boasted seven All-District players, including a pair of unanimous honorees in running back Morris Stone and quarterback charlie Arnecke.
