Miscues costly to Lions in opener


LPR Staff

SAN ANTONIO — Lockhart’s late rally fell just short, losing its season-opener at San Antonio Southwest Friday night, 41-35.

Senior quarterback Ashton Dickens had 164 yards rushing and 234 passing, running and throwing for two touchdowns each, and almost rallied the Lions who scored 14 points in a matter 33 seconds the final 2:14 before falling.

Southwest jumped out to a 14-0 lead after one period and led 28-14 at the half, stretching that lead to 34-14 after three quarters and 41-21 with 7:57 remaining.

Four Lockhart turnovers and some big plays by the Southwest offense were the downfall of the Lions. Dickens threw three interceptions, including a 72-yard interception return by the Dragons’ Aazeryuan Voss.
Lockhart finished the night with 30 first downs to just 12 for Southwest and the Lions had out-gained the Dragons 485-276, but Southwest had zero turnovers.

Gabe Deutsch had six receptions for Lockhart for 82 yards and a touchdown, while Ethan Aguirre hauled in six for 69 yards.

Lockhart (0-1) has homecoming next week as it welcomes Pflugerville Connally (1-0) to Lions Stadium for a 7 p.m. kickoff.
