Texans throttle Owls in area playoff

Staff Report

For the ninth time over the past ten seasons, the Wimberley Texans will play football after the Thanksgiving holiday.

That mark, one many teams aim for annually, was reached after the Texans throttled the Hondo Owls 54-14 in their Nov. 21 area round playoff at San Antonio Legacy Stadium in Van Ormy.

Wimberley advances to face familiar foe Sinton in the regional quarterfinals Saturday, Nov. 28 at 2 p.m. at Rutledge Stadium in Converse. It will mark the fifth time Wimberley and Sinton will square off in the playoffs in the past seven seasons.

The Texans wasted little time capturing a 30-0 halftime lead and never looked back from there. Aiding the Texan effort was running back Moses Wray who rushed for a career-high 162 yards on 18 carries and a pair of touchdowns.

Through the air, Texan quarterback Matthew Tippie went 19 of 28 for 329 yards and five total touchdowns. Tippie’s primary target was wide receiver Ty Pruett who finished with a career high 143 yards receiving on nine catches and two total scores. The Texan offense amassed a blistering 542 yards of total offense.

Backing up the Texan offense was the Code Red defense that created two turnovers and amassed five total sacks on the night. Wimberley’s Dylan Kincaid and Josh Prado both finished with interceptions, while Nova Rankin and Shay Shroyer each finished with two sacks.
