DUBLIN — Friday night was a big night for both the Dublin and De Leon football teams as high school athletics resumed for the first time since mid-March for both schools following the COVID-19 shutdown by the University Interscholastic League.
“Our world, as we know it, came to a screeching halt,” De Leon coach Andrew Dickson said. “In small towns like ours, there’s not much going on besides high school sports. We need it. Our kids need it, our community needs it and it’s scary.”
In the end, it was Dublin that came out with a 33-7 come-from-behind win to open Bob and Norma Cervetto Field. The field is named after Dublin’s current head coach and his wife, both longtime educators.
