This past weekend the Lady Lions traveled to Gatesville for their first tournament of the season. Dublin has been to the Gatesville tournament for over ten years and has never managed to bring home hardware from the big school tournament. This year the Lady Lions went with their mind set on bringing hardware home and that’s exactly what they did.
After losing the first game to Groesbeck Dublin had no other option but to win their next three games in order to place in the tournament. They took top honors in the consolation bracket by defeating Troy, Florence and Jarrell.
See more Lady Lions coverage in the Aug. 28 edition.
It was a close match between two longtime rivals as the Dublin Lions met the Hico Tigers in the Tarleton Fall Football Classic Thursday. Dublin came out to an early lead that was threatened in the second half, but Lions pulled ahead in the final minutes leading to a 23-20 victory to start their 2014-2015 season. Photos and the complete story will be available in the Sept. 4 edition.
