Devine lived up to its motto “Whatever it Takes!” as they defeated the visiting Carrizo Springs Wildcats 21-6 last Friday at Warhorse Stadium.  The homecoming-crowd saw plenty of good defense from the home squad as the Wildcats were stymied by the Devine “D” for a large chunk of the evening.
The Warhorses are 2-0 in District 14-4A with a huge showdown with the 1-0 Bulldogs in Bandera Friday night. Kickoff is set for 7pm.
Much of the credit for this victory goes to the defensive side of the ball.
