Cisco ends Leonard's playoff run


FORT WORTH —   Colton Kent ran for 177 yards on 10 carries to lead the Cisco Loboes to a 55-6 win over the Leonard Tigers in the Class 2A Division II state football semifinals on Saturday.

  Cisco, now 15-0, advances to Thursday’s state finals at AT&T Stadium to play Refugio while Leonard finishes with an 11-4 record after reaching the semifinals for the first time.

  “We had a great season and I am very proud of these young men,” said Leonard coach Shane Fletcher.

  Cisco opened the scoring with a 45-yard touchdown run by Mason Reed. Card Lewis kicked the extra point to give the Loboes a 7-0 lead with only two minutes and 16 seconds elapsed in the first period.

  The Loboes scored only two minutes later when Kent ran in from 49 yards.

Leonard threatened right before the end of the first period driving from its 28 to the Lobo three. Ty McKinney hauled in a 27-yard pass from Justin Bennett down to the Cisco 10. On fourth down and goal from the three Bennett’s pass to Solomon Titus landed incomplete.

  It took only two minutes for Cisco to drive 97 yards and score again on a 3-yard pass from Kent to Kyle Green.

  Leonard drove to the Cisco 35 but was stopped on downs.

  The Loboes’ next score was a different matter as Kent returned a Tiger punt 70 yards for touchdown.   Kent connected with Landen Lewis for the two-point conversion to make it 29-0 32 seconds into the second period.

  Leonard again drove into Cisco territory but fumbled at the Lobo 34.

  Kent struck again with a 24-yard scoring run.

  With 3:46 left in the half Kent again scored on a 77-yard run as Cisco went into halftime leading 42-0.

  One minute after halftime Lewis scored on a 3-yard run.

  Bennett put Leonard on the board with an 80 yard touchdown run after faking a handoff to Titus. A run for two failed.

  Cisco finalized the scoring when Tyler Callahan scored on a 4-yard run.

  Bennett led Leonard with a 109 yards rushing on nine carries while Titus picked up 94 on 22 rushes.
