Long pass helps Denison pull away from Greenville



GREENVILLE — Crandall 44,

Rains 20

  EMORY — The Rains Wildcats dropped their second game in District 14-3A against the Crandall Pirates 44-20 on Friday night.

  Rains (4-5, 1-2) scored the first touchdown of the game in the second quarter on a 14-yard pass from Ryan Ratliff to Dakota Miller to put the Wildcats up 7-3.

  But Rains would not score again until the final quarter as Crandall (3-5, 1-2) ripped off 27 unanswered points, including a 48-yard touchdown scamper by Nathaniel Banks, and a 37-yard score by Michael Gati on a blocked punt early in the third quarter.

  Ratliff ended the scoring drought for the Wildcats on a 1-yard keeper to start the fourth quarter, but a 1-yard touchdown run by Banks and a 47-yard fumble return for a score by Jon Rychlik would deepen the hole for Rains, 44-14.

  Ratliff added one last score for Rains with a 9-yard toss to Justin Callahan to somewhat soften the ugly loss for the Wildcats.

  Rains managed just 236 yards total offense to Crandall’s 362. Ratliff finished 4-of-8 for 41 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. Jesse Hudson led the Wildcats on the ground with 109 yards on 15 carries.
