Uvalde High School’s 2019 football season came to an end last Friday night at Lockhart.
The Coyotes ended their season with a narrow 45-41 loss to the Lockhart Lions.
“It was tough loss, because we came so very close to beating Lockhart,” said UHS head football coach R.T. Gonzales.
“We had a good game-plan and our kids played hard from start to finish, but we fell a little short,” said Gonzales.
“Going in to the game, we knew we faced a tough task in beating a good Lockhart team on their home field,” said Gonzales. “Our kids stepped up their play and put forth a solid performance.
“Credit Lockhart for coming up with some big plays, especially on special teams to beat us,” said Coach Gonzales.
Going into the final district game of the season, both the Coyotes and the Lions needed for Alamo Heights to lose to Boerne Champion to give them a playoff spot.
Champion trounced Alamo Heights, 42-7, Friday at Boerne.
“Our kids knew what was at stake. Despite being two-touchdown underdogs, we came close to knocking off Lockhart. I am proud of how hard our kids fought last Friday,” said Gonzales. “We were so close to beating Lockhart and so close to making it to the playoffs. That is what really hurts.”
