Dublin Premier got its first scrimmage against an opponent out of the way Saturday. Now the countdown really begins with just one scrimmage remaining before the Wolves begin their inaugural six-man season.
Premier opened preseason action with a trip to Comanche Paradigm, where each team scored three touchdowns.
Premier would likely have had the upper hand in game conditions thanks to the four fumbles the Wolves forced and the two they recovered.
Brothers Pablo and Leo Lemus did all of Premier's scoring and accounted for much of the Wolves' offensive production. Leo Lemus rushed for 180 yards and two touchdowns and was also 3-6 passing, while Pablo ran for 120 yards and a score.
Juan Chavez chipped in offensively with a pair of pass completions covering a total of 55 yards.
"We looked alright offensively, but it was hard to throw the ball because of the rain," said Premier coach Joe Short. "We ran the ball great in the rain, I was happy with that."
The Premier defense was especially stingy in the second quarter, when Comanche Paradigm netted just five yards.
The Wolves' final preseason scrimmage is 6 p.m. Friday in Lohn. It's a four-way scrimmage that also includes powerhouses Abilene Christian and Panther Creek.
