football week 5The Dripping Springs Tigers Varsity Football team (3-2; 1-1) defeated the Marble Falls Mustangs (1-3-1; 0-2) 38-1 at its homecoming game on Friday, September 25.

The Tigers were in desperate need for a win after losing their district opener game against Cedar Park the previous week.

Tigers` corner coach Trent Vittrup was proud of the way the team performed on Friday night.

“It was a good win,” he said. “And we needed it badly.”

Vittrup felt that certain players stood out at last week’s game and really helped carry the team to their first district win of the season.

The Tigers will not be competing on Friday, October 2 due to it being a bye week.

“Getting back to the basics and getting healthy are the main concerns this week,” Vittrup said.

Vittrup seemed optimistic about the team and created a sense of suspense regarding the remainder of the season.

“I feel like we are going to surprise some people,” he said.
