Killeen Roos jump over Lady Tigers basketball

 

It was like looking at a mirror image as the Dripping Springs Lady Tigers took on the visiting Killeen Lady Roos. Each team would push the ball up the court when they could and if not would settle in to work the ball around for a good shot. The edge in the 58-54 loss to the Lady Roos was Killeen had players that shot more fundamentally sound form shots that gives you a higher percentage of success than did the Lady Tigers. It was a good experience game for the Lady Tigers as they were playing people with athletic skills and quickness, so it upped the Lady Tigers game as well, including the need to be able to finish a game strong. In the end Killeen would make the Lady Tigers pay for the few mistakes they would make in the final quarter and give the Lady Tigers their second loss in ten games.

DS Swim Team in Gilkerson Memorial Holiday Spring Classic

 

Just prior to the Thanksgiving holidays the Dripping Springs swim team participated in the Gilkerson Memorial Holiday Sprint Classic at San Marcos. It is comprised of the short races and not the full gamut of a regular meet. Did not have a standings report but looks like the DS did very well in both divisions.

Tigers Roll

Jake Cox cuts right on his way to a victory over Mission Veterans Memorial Patriots.

 

There was definitely no suspense in this game as the Dripping Springs Tigers dismantled the Mission Veterans Memorial Patriots 69-35 to advance to the quarterfinals against Richmond Foster, a 55-0 winner over Eagle Pass Winn. Last week it was not over until four seconds remained but this week it was decided in the first five seconds, if not earlier. A pregame interview with the coach sounded like he was already resigned to his fate on this day. Just happy as a lark they had reached the round they had never been before.

Miracle finish 12:11

Reese Johnson takes off on another run against Angleton 

 

What a difference a defense can make was never more evident than in the Area game between Dripping Springs and the Angleton Wildcats. Last week the two teams scored a combined 136 points against two weak teams and neither first team defense allowed a point. In their match for the Area championship at Texas State Bobcat stadium, it was all either could do to score period. It took the entire 48 minutes minus four seconds as the Tigers would come back from what looked to be an impossible situation to win 12-11 and head to regional where they will meet up with Mission Veteran's Memorial, a 28-14 winner over Flour Bluff, Saturday at 2:00 pm in San Antonio's Alamo Stadium.

Tigers dominate in playoffs

Curt Raymond blocks for Teo Brinckmann, who rushed for 91 yards against Austin High. 

 

It was complete domination from start to finish as the Dripping Springs Tigers scored their first eight possessions enroute to a 63-14 victory over the Austin High Maroons. This moved the 10-1 Tigers down the playoff road to the Area round with the Angleton Wildcats (9-2) who also had a 73-0 laugher over SA Lanier. Tiger fans certainly got a travel break as the game will be played in San Marcos at the Texas State University Bobcat Field. Kickoff will be at 2:00pm, Saturday, November 19.

Tigers take down Tivy 26 - 7

It is a common belief that defense wins championships. Fans were treated to two very good defenses in the Dripping Springs Tigers-Kerrville Tivy Antlers game. The Tigers got the best of it as they inflicted a 26-7 loss on the defending champions and put themselves in a very good position to become the district champions themselves. Still smarting from an 0-3 start Tivy gave it their all as they held an 88-53 edge in plays but the Tigers were up to the task forcing three turnovers and less than four yards per play and the offense making the big play when they had to. Over a third of their offense came on two plays. Although Tivy was able to move the ball slowly but surely, taking fourth downs to get first downs, they were forced to go 70 or more yards which they could not successfully do against the stalwart defense of the Tigers led by Beau Collins, Noah Orr, McKenly O’Neal, Miles Farris and Joshua Embry.
