GCS, Phoenix open season with big victories

HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL ROUNDUP

GREENVILLE —   Greenville Christian School captured its six-man football opener at home on Saturday, 68-22 over a new program.

  Central Park Christian Academy of Garland was a late addition to the GCS schedule after Eagle coach David Wombaker found out a week ago that Arlington High Point, the team originally scheduled, had changed opponents.

  GCS racked up 399 total yards, including 351 yards rushing, and ended the game early in the third quarter via the 45-point mercy rule.

  “It’s a good win,” said Wombaker. “We didn’t have any serious injuries. We’ve got some sore kids that are wore out.”

  Temperatures that reached 104 degrees took their toll on players for both teams, leaving Central Park with only five players on the field for the game’s final play: a 28-yard touchdown pass from Tristan Wooten to Michael Lutz.

  GCS scored on its first play from scrimmage, a 38-yard touchdown run by Morgan Henry. Henry finished with 148 yards on nine carries, also scoring on runs of 29, 21, 2 and 27 yards.

Joe Henderson dashed for another 166 yards on seven carries for GCS, scoring on bursts of 8, 69 and 35 yards.

Fannindel 68,

Rockwall Heritage 19

  LADONIA — Fannindel successfully opened its six-man football season on Friday night at Bishop Field with a 68-19 pasting of perennial power Rockwall Heritage.

  “It was a combination of their youth and our speed,” said Gabe Lane, who debuted as the Falcons’ head coach. “They couldn’t stop us.”

  Fannindel senior Quincy Cuba rushed for 154 yards on 11 carries, running for one touchdown, and also caught two passes for eight yards and one TD.

Stephen Lock ran three times for 73 yards and three TDs and caught a touchdown pass.

  E.J. Jones rushed for 27 yards and one score on four carries for the Falcons.

Akeyl Caesar ran for another 27 yards and a TD on four carries.

  Chris Day caught five passes for 115 yards and one touchdown.

  Quarterback Jarvis Wilburn was 14-of-16 for 153 yards and four TDs as the Falcons ended the game at halftime via the 45-point mercy rule.

  Defensive leaders, according to Lane, included Wilburn, Andrew Miller, Robert Erwin, E.J. Jones and Lock.
