Lobos crush Cowboys for first district win

SAN ANTONIO – Two rushing touchdowns by Lehman wide receiver Kyree Payton aided the Lobo effort Friday in a dominant 33-0 road victory over the San Antonio McCollum Cowboys.

The win was the first time since the 2016-17 season Lehman notched a district victory, ending a 24-game losing skid in district play.

Lehman leapt out to a 13-0 halftime lead courtesy of a 37-yard touchdown run by running back Joey Mojica and a 44-yard touchdown run by Kyree Payton.

Payton continued the onslaught in the third frame with a 61-yard touchdown run in the third quarter, followed by a 64-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Zackary Casarez to tight end Tanner Johnson.

Payton rushed for 112 yards on four carries and a pair of touchdowns, while Mojica ran the ball 13 times for 90 yards and a touchdown. The Lobo offense amassed 453 total yards with 293 of those coming on the ground.

The Lobo air attack was led by Casarez who went 5 of 12 for 160 yards and a touchdown with two interceptions.

Meanwhile, Lehman’s defense shutdown the Cowboy offense and limited McCollum to 143 total yards on 60 plays.

Lehman travels to play at Seguin Nov. 27. The Lobos host San Antonio Veterans Memorial Dec. 4 at 7:30 p.m. at Bob Shelton Stadium.
