Strawn eliminated by No. 1 Richland Springs

By TONY EIERDAM

HICO – Ending the season where it began in early September, the Strawn Greyhounds fell to state-ranked No. 1 Richland Springs, 82-44, Saturday afternoon in a six man semi-final game at a jam-packed Tiger Stadium.

The Greyhounds finish a successful season with an overall mark of 12-2.

“I am really proud of the way my guys fought until the very end of the game,” Strawn head coach Dewayne Lee said afterward. “They could have 45-ed us but our guys were not going to let that happen and I am very proud of them. I am also very proud of our seniors and I am going to hate to see this senior class go. This class has done a lot for our program and I am going to miss seeing them every day.”

While penalties and mistakes hurt the ‘Hounds throughout the contest, Lee said the Coyotes simply beat his squad. Strawn’s defense was not able to stop Richland Springs’ offense on downs until early in the fourth quarter. The score was 66-30 after three.

“Richland Springs had just too much offense for us,” Lee said. “They are a great football team and we saw why they are ranked number one.”

Strawn got off to a fast start when senior Bobby Wells took the opening kickoff 77 yards for a touchdown. The PAT was blocked leaving the score at 6-0 just seconds into the game.

However, Richland Springs answered quickly with a 17-yard touchdown pass to tie the game at 6.

Strawn then fumbled on its ensuing possession to set up a six-yard touchdown run by Richland Springs running back Chance Bush. Trevor Tinney booted the PAT to give the Coyotes a 14-6 lead.

The ‘Hounds came back with the longest march of the game to tie the score. Ross Alison capped a nine-play, 75-yard drive with a seven-yard touchdown pass to Cole Abbott with 2:23 left in the opening period. Jacob Trujillo booted the extra points to tie the game at 14.
