GCS, Phoenix open season with big victories




Caddo Mills 25

  KRUM — Caddo Mills dropped a 28-25 heartbreaker to the Krum Bobcats at Bobcat Stadium on Friday night.

  In a game full of big plays by both team, the Foxes could not pull out the win after their drive ended at the Krum 15-yard line with 1:34 left in the game.

  The teams started by trading punts twice before Krum put together a nine-play drive that stalled when Fox defender Daxx Hill intercepted a fourth down pass in the end zone to set the Foxes up at their own 20. Fox quarterback Erik Richards then led Caddo Mills on a 12-play drive for the first score. The big play of the drive was a 37-yard cutback run by Hill to the Krum 18. Three more Hill runs had the Foxes at the 1-yard line where Richards followed the center of the Fox line into the end zone. Hill added the PAT for a 7-0 Caddo Mills lead with 7:23 to go in the second quarter.

  Caddo Mills forced another Krum punt at midfield where Fox linebacker Dan Willner blocked the punt to give the Foxes the ball at the Krum 31.  However, the Krum defense stiffened and Caddo Mills stalled at the Krum 20.

  The Bobcats then went on a nine-play touchdown drive that ended with a 21-yard pass from sophomore quarterback Colten Graham to Krum’s main man, Brennan Ellis, for the score. Miguel Licea added the PAT to tie the game at 7-7 with 1:01 in the half.

  The Foxes’ Keaton Jones returned the kickoff for 55 yards to set Caddo Mills up at the Krum 17-yard line. Two runs by Richards got a first and goal at the one. Richards again followed the center of the Fox line for the touchdown with 19 seconds left in the half. The PAT by Johnathan Gillispie failed and Caddo Mills went into the locker room up 13-7.

  Caddo Mills opened up the second half with another scoring drive behind the play of Richards, who again scored from the 1-yard line to give the Foxes a 19-7 lead.

  Richards ran for 116 yards on 31 carries for three touchdowns. He was 9-of-15  passing for 98 yards with one touchdown and one interception.
