Davenport junior wide receiver/tight end Emmet Greiman steps out of a tackle attempt by a Tivy player during Friday night’s home opener for the Wolves at Davenport Stadium. Head coach J.D. Zimmerhanzel’s team improved to 2-0 following the 31-28 win and is now set to prepare for fellow Comal ISD newcomer Pieper on Friday, Sept. 9 at Warrior Stadium in San Antonio.

SAN ANTONIO — Davenport picked a traditional South Texas power to welcome to town for its 2022 home opener, and the Wolves responded with a first-half flurry that fueled a 31-28 triumph.

Davenport (2-0) again utilized balance on offense, as quarterback Triston Hamlin and running back Shastin Golden each took turns moving the sticks. The Wolves built a 24-7 lead at the half and withstood a strong charge in the final stanza from the Antlers (1-1), who lived up their “Tivy Fight Never Dies” motto with two late touchdowns.
