Long pass helps Denison pull away from Greenville



GREENVILLE — Dallas Tyler Street 52,


  DALLAS — Greenville Christian School dropped its six-man football game to Dallas Tyler Street on Saturday, 52-8.

  Will Martens threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to Michael Lutz for the Eagles’ only touchdown. Pretei Lemo converted.

  “We missed too many tackles, dropped too many passes and didn’t block very well,” said GCS coach David Wombaker. “We gave Tyler Street a short field to work with all afternoon. We had very few bright moments.”

  Lutz sparked the defense with an interception.

  GCS dropped to 4-5 for the season and 1-3 in district play. Tyler Street improved to 5-4 and 2-2.

  The Eagles will hit the road for the third straight game, playing on Friday night at Watauga Harvest.

Campbell 72,

Fruitvale 64

  CAMPBELL — The Campbell Indians moved one step closer to the playoffs with a 72-64 win against Fruitvale on Friday night.

  Campbell (4-5, 2-1) led the entire game until Fruitvale scored to knot it all up with 17 seconds left.

  On the ensuing onside kick, Dallas DeGarso recovered and took it the distance to cap off the win for Campbell.

  Jacob Camp recorded four touchdown tosses, including a 63-yarder to Chris Wilson, and also had a 20-yard touchdown run.

  Kicker Antonio Garcia was instrumental for the Indians, nailing all nine of his extra point attempts to add 18 of Campbell’s 72 total points.

  Campbell can secure a playoff spot with a win next week against Leverett’s Chapel.

Leonard 52,

Tom Bean 19

  TOM BEAN — Solomon Titus rushed for 181 yards on 15 carries with 144 coming in the first half to lead the Leonard Tigers to a 52-19 victory over Tom Bean on Friday night.

  Leonard opened the scoring on a Titus 26-yard touchdown run. Titus picked up 42 yards of the 52-yard drive. He also ran for the two-point conversion to give Leonard an early 8-0 lead.

Tom Bean’s Devan Jackson returned the following kickoff 86 yards for a score. Ryan Reid Nixon blocked the extra point.

  The Tigers’ next score was on a Nixon-to-Mason Sargent 2-yard pass. The run for two failed, but Leonard led 14-6 with 4:39 left in the first period.

  The Tomcats’ Daniel Jackson broke on a 71-yard sprint to the end zone. Lucus Bornstien kicked the extra point, leaving the score 14-13.

  Ty McKinney had an 18-yard reception down to the Cats’ 30-yard line. Three plays later Justin Bennett sprinted in from 7 yards out to extend the Tigers lead to 21-13. McKinney kicked his first of four extra points.

  Leonard drove 53 yards on the next series keyed by Titus’ two runs. Nixon capped the drive with a 14-yard carry to the end zone.

  Five minutes later Bennett sailed a 48-yard aerial with McKinney on the receiving end for a Tigers touchdown.

  Nixon again struck pay dirt with a 12-yard touchdown run, completing a 60-yard drive with McKinney’s extra point as Leonard went into halftime with a 42-13 lead.
