Wimberley in first, Dripping Springs in last


Early in the district season, Wimberley is all alone on top of its district, while Dripping Springs is at the bottom of its district after Friday night’s high school football games.

The Texans sent Ingram Moore to its 34th consecutive loss as Dennis Smith ran for 327 yards and four touchdowns in a 62-3 win. Wimberley is 3-3 overall and the only 2-0 team in District 8-3A. Burnet, which Wimberley defeated last week, dropped Liberty Hill, 48-6, Friday night. Llano started its district season Friday with a 27-7 win against Fredericksburg, dropping the Billies to 0-2 in the district.

Canyon Lake, which started the district season with a 42-7 win against Ingram Moore a week ago, had Friday night off. The Hawks go to Wimberley next week, giving the Texans a chance to take command of the district race.

Dripping Springs lost at home, 48-42, to Killeen, giving the Kangaroos their first district win and making the Tigers 0-2 in District 25-4A.

The Tigers fell behind, 21-0, early in the second quarter and could never catch up. Tigers moved at will and evenly, gaining 252 yards on the ground and 251 yards through the air for 503 total yards. But Killeen trumped that with 609 total yards, including 412 in 41 rushing attempts.

Dripping Springs quarterback Justin Tuck completed 23 of 32 passes for 222 yards and added 73 rushing yards in 14 carries. Kaleb Syring led the Tigers in rushing yards with 136 in 13 rushes.

However, Killeen’s Michael Cummings and Jaquail Haskins combined for 318 rushing yards, with Haskins gaining 179 in 12 carries and Cummings adding 139 in 15 carries. Cummings ran for two touchdowns and threw for two more.

The Tigers are tied in the district basement with Hutto, which lost, 57-16, to Region IV favorite Lake Travis Friday night.
