Water Valley routs Blackwell

August 30, 2011

MCCAMEY — Water Valley needed just one half of football to defeat Blackwell Saturday as it cruised to a 78-6 victory at the West Texas Six-Man Shootout.
Water Valley, in its first game under ex-Highland coach Karry Owens, enjoyed a 46-6 advantage at the end of the first period and added 32 points in the second stanza to end the game due to six-man’s 45-point mercy rule.
Jayden Jones scored the only Blackwell points on a 3-yard run in the first quarter. He was the Hornets’ leading rusher with 30 yards on seven carries and also caught a 36-yard pass.

‘D’lightful start — SW blanks Vernon

August 27, 2011

For the second straight week, Sweetwater’s offense had a monster, clock-eating scoring drive when the Mustangs opened their season Friday against the Vernon Lions.
Sweetwater took 18 plays to go 69 yards, leading to Ryan Linebaugh’s 1-yard touchdown run with 11:13 left in the second quarter that put his team up 7-0.
But, with the exception of another great showing by the Mustangs’ new kicker, Tadeo Canon-Masjoan, the offensive highlights after that were few. That meant Sweetwater’s defense had to step up to the challenge, and did it ever.

Plowboys can’t stay with Lions

August 27, 2011

ALBANY — The Roscoe Plowboys hit the road to face a very tough Albany team Friday in its season opener, and the Lions rolled to a 57-7 win.
Albany, a top-10 team in most preseason polls, was ahead 28-0 after one quarter and never looked back. Five players accounted for the Lions’ eight touchdowns, seven of them on long-distance plays of at least 29 yards.

Highland falls to Bryson

August 27, 2011

TRENT — The Highland Hornets put up a respecta-ble defensive effort in their opening game with Bryson on Thursday, but managed just one score as the Cow-boys won the contest 24-8.
Highland got its touch-down on Tyler Falcon’s 3-yard run in the first quarter. Steven Tester kicked the PAT to tie the game at 8, but the Hornets didn’t score again. Meanwhile, Bryson came back with two more touchdowns to seal the win. The game was played at Trent as part of the Rumble in the Jungle Classic.
