DILLEY – After being eliminated from playoff contention, the Karnes City Badgers played for pride on Friday night as they took on the Dilley Wolves. Unfortunately for Karnes City, the Wolves kept them out of the end zone and defeated the Badgers by the score of 21-0. The Badgers end the season with a 4-6 overall record and a 3-4 district record.

“The one thing I liked about them was, even though not everything went our way, they kept working,” said Karnes City head coach Jim Wood. “That will help us next year.”

The Wolves scored seven points in each of the first three quarters of the game, failing to score only in the fourth quarter.

Statistically, the Badgers gained 135 yards of total offense, with 60 yards rushing over 32 carries and 75 yards passing over 10 completions. By comparison, the Wolves gained 282 yards of total offense, with 69 yards rushing over 23 carries and 213 yards passing over 23 completions. In terms of penalties, the Badgers were flagged four times for 55 total yards and the Wolves were flagged 10 times for 90 total yards.

Wood said that, with only three seniors graduating, this season’s experience will help the Badgers in preparing for next season.

“We’re going to miss our three seniors, but that gave our younger kids a lot of playing time this season.”

Despite football season coming to a close in Karnes City, Wood said that there is still a lot of the school year left.

“The end of football just starts basketball,” said Wood. “Also, with the season over, we don’t waste time getting into offseason and working on the district championship next year. We still have a busy school year ahead of us.”
