Wylie East rolls past Greenville Lions




Greenville Phoenix 0

  Fort Worth THESA blanked the Greenville Phoenix Firebirds, 46-0 in six-man football on Saturday at Firebird Field.

  THESA, which stands for Texas Home School Educators’ Sports Association, controlled the tempo as the Riders improved to 5-3 for the season.

Phoenix dropped to 4-4.

  THESA’s defense stopped a couple of Firebird threats with two interceptions by Shane Breeden and one by Sam Bradford.

  Antwan Blakely also put the Firebirds in position to score with a long kickoff return but it was called back by a penalty.

  Blakely wound up leading Phoenix with 42 yards rushing on 13 carries.

  Tyler Killian was next for Phoenix with 39 yards on six rushes.

Kaufman 32,

Quinlan Ford 7

  KAUFMAN — Quinlan Ford struggled to move the ball on offense in its 32-7 loss on the road against Kaufman (5-3, 2-0) on Friday night.

  The Panthers (5-3, 1-1) got on the board for the first time in the second quarter on a 1-yard run by Daulten Beierschmitt. That would end up being the team’s only score of the night.

  Beierschmitt led Ford in rushing with 86 yards on 21 carries and the lone touchdown, while Jon   Humphries totaled 71 yards on 16 carries. Ford also tallied two interceptions on its three total passing attempts.

   The Panthers managed just 181 total yards of offense while giving up 324 yards total offensive to Kaufman.

Caddo Mills 12,

Howe 7

  HOWE — The Caddo Mills Foxes had to overcome a cold, wet and windy night, a host of turnovers, untimely penalties and a very strong Howe Bulldog defense to pull out 12-7 district win on Friday night.

  The Bulldog defense held the Fox offense to only 59 yards rushing, a season low, and put a number of big hits on the Caddo Mills runners and receivers, causing two lost fumbles and one interception that was knocked out of the receiver’s hands.

  Behind the rushing of Anthony Hawthorne, who led all runners with 134 yards on 33 carries, the Bulldogs scored on the opening possession of the game. Bulldog quarterback Joaquin Lopez found Randle Nix for an 8-yard touchdown pass at the 9:19 mark of the first quarter. The PAT by Tyler Nicholson was gave Howe the lead at 7-0.

  With 4:28 left in the first half, Caddo Mills finally answered with a 10-play scoring drive that was finished on a 9-yard pass from Erik Richards to Keaton Jones. The PAT failed to reach the crossbars of the goal post and the Foxes had closed to 7-6.

  That was the score going into final two minutes of the game. Caddo Mills had a 13-play drive stopped on downs at the Howe 24 with 3:15 left in the fourth quarter.  The Foxes made use of their final two timeouts and forced a Bulldog punt which David Chandler returned to the Howe 43.

  Richards was forced out the pocket and had a big gain that was called back on a holding call. The Fox offense line gave Richards to the time to find Chandler Brown for 37 yards to the Bulldog 15.

Richards, scrambling under a heavy rush, found Jones in the right corner of the end zone for the 15-yard touchdown at the 1:17 mark of the game.
