Lions to fight for third place

After a back-and-forth first half, Comanche pulled away in the second half to come away with a 54-30 win against Dublin to essentially secure the District title. 

“The whole game our kids played with heart, played with effort, played with passion,” Cervetto said.

Cervetto said the fans continued to play a pivotal role for the athletes keeping focused this season, and the community  support has mean a great to deal to the team. 

“Our fans are second to none,” he said.

The Lions are now 7-2 overall and will battle Millsap on Friday for third place in District. 

Millsap, like Dublin, has surprised the District with their success this season. 

“Millsap is probably having one of the best years they’ve had in a long, long time,” Cervetto said. “... There’s a lot on the line for both of us.”

Cervetto expects them to run out of the I formation on offense and operate an odd-man front on defense. With Dublin’s spread offense, Cervetto said the Bulldogs will be forced to adjust.  

Millsap’s quarterback is a State champion track star, so Cervetto said he will be a player to watch. 

A win on Friday will mean Dublin will likely face state top 10 team Holliday (8-1) in Bi-District, a loss will mean playing undefeated Gunter in Bi-District, who is in the top two or three of most state polls. 

Kickoff is at 7 p.m. at Memorial Stadium.
