SAN ANTONIO – Sixteen unanswered points tallied in the final two frames paved the way for a thrilling come-from-behind 26-20 Lehman Lobos win over the San Antonio Southwest Dragons Friday.
Lehman (2-1) trailed 20-10 at halftime before bouncing right back in the third quarter.
A four-yard touchdown run by running back Robert Vasquez helped the Lobos cut the Dragon lead to 20-17. A 33-yard touchdown run by running back Nick Martinez several minutes later pushed the Lobos ahead at 23-20 following a missed two-point attempt.
The Lobos gained extra separation in the fourth quarter via a 26-yard field goal from Marshall Dukett, which pushed the Lobos’ lead to 26-20.
Lehman’s success was predicated by a balanced offensive attack on the night. The Lobos finished with 395 total yards, 199 of those gained on the ground and 196 yards gained through the air.
Lobo quarterback Joey Guajardo went 16 of 22 for 196 yards passing while also rushing for 31 yards on 10 carries and a touchdown.
Martinez rushed for 92 yards on 12 carries and a touchdown and Vasquez finished with seven carries for 30 yards and a score.
After an Oct. 16 bye week, Lehman returns to action when they travel to play at San Antonio Harlandale Oct. 23 to start district play.
