Royse City spoils Greenville Lions' homecoming




North Lamar 38,

Quinlan Ford 24

  QUINLAN — Senior quarterback Jacob Cowling tossed a couple late fourth-quarter touchdown passes, lifting the North Lamar Panthers over the Quinlan Ford Panthers, 38-24, at Hobart Lytal Field on Friday night in a rematch of last season’s bi-district playoffs.

  Quinlan (3-2) bounced back to the knot the contest up at 24-24 as Weston McClusley darted in from 31 yards out at the 11:51 mark of the fourth quarter. That capped off seven-play drive that went 62 yards,

  Both teams were unable to move the ball on their next possessions and then North Lamar went ahead for good. Cowling hooked up with Devin McDonald for a 43-yard touchdown strike. However it was wiped due to a taunting penalty. Two plays later, North Lamar reached the end zone through the air as Cowling connected with Tyler Carter from 23 yards out.

  Ford threated to even the contest as the Panthers drove to the North Lamar 15 on runs by Daulten Beierschmitt, Jon Humphries and Chandler Schwing. Quinlan’s drive stalled and ended on a fumble.

North Lamar (2-3) sealed the win again through the air as Cowling hooked up with Samacki Walker for a 86-yard strike with 1:59 left in regulation.

  The difference in the contest was through the air as North Lamar amassed 241 yards and Quinlan Ford was unable to record a completion,

  LEONARD — Ryan Reid Nixon rushed for 143 yards and Solomon Titus picked up 130 as the Leonard Tigers defeated the Wolfe City Wolves 29-13 on Leonard’s homecoming.

  In the first period both teams drove into enemy territory, but the period ended scoreless.

  The Tigers put together a 61-yard drive, but was stopped on the Wolves’ 7. Ty McKinney booted a 25-yard field goal at the 6:44 mark of the second quarter to give the Tigers 3-0 lead.

  The Wolves put together 76-yard scoring drive. The key play was a 30-yard pass completion from Brandon Fisk to Hunter Bostick. Darrell Wooten then scored on a 10-yard run. Justin Wilkinson kicked the point-after to give the Wolves a 7-3 lead.

  With 42 seconds left in the half Nixon connected on 17-yard touchdown pas to Titus. McKinney’s point-after was good and the Tigers led 10-7 going into the half.
