Hail Mary pass helps East overtake Greenville

HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL

(Continued)

GREENVILLE — Quinlan Ford 42,

Kaufman 40

  QUINLAN — In a tense shootout which determined who went 5-3 on the season, Quinlan Ford beat Kaufman 42-40 Friday night for homecoming.

  The excitement culminated in a key stop on the Lions — a deflected fourth-down pass attempt which Mason Welch made and Quinlan held on to win.

  Senior James Silkey paced the Panthers with 20 rushes for 115 yards and three rushing touchdowns.

  As a team, the Panthers amassed 371 yards on 51 rushes, including six for touchdowns.

Quinlan was first and last on the scoreboard for the night, beginning when John Humphries hit paydirt from nine yards out, and Taylor Sikorsky hit the first of his four point-after kicks, ultimately going 4-4 on kicks for the night.

S  ikorsky then made six points on a 2-yard plunge, and made good the PAT. He went on to rush 17 times for 165 yards, and it was his run into the end zone for a two-point conversion that pushed the Panthers ahead for the final 42-40.

 

Melissa 57,

Community 27

  MELISSA — Chris Smith threw for 333 yards and three touchdowns on a 15-of-19 effort as Melissa totalled 533 while defeating Nevada Community, 57-27, in District 12-3A play Friday night.

  Melissa improved to 5-2 overall and 1-0 in 12-3A, while Community slipped to 4-4 and 0-2.

 Community trailed 54-7 at halftime before Corey Rogers returned the second-half opening kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown to cut the deficit.

  Rogers also rushed for 149 yards on 16 carries and had 58 receiving yards on five catches, including a 29-yard scoring reception in the third quarter.

Pottsboro 21,

Commerce 18

  COMMERCE — In a match-up that could wind up determining the District 6-2A champion, the Commerce Tigers fell on homecoming to the Pottsboro Cardinals, 21-18.

  Senior receiver Buck Wilson was named homecoming king with Kaci Harrison named homecoming queen. A large Commerce crowd then prepared to see what promised to be a great game against the undefeated Pottsboro Cardinals. And for the first half, the Tiger faithful were well-rewarded.

  Commerce received the ball to start, but traded punts with the Cardinals. On the Tigers’ second possession, a great punt return by Wilson set up a 9-yard, fourth-down scoring pass from junior quarterback Sam Wells to sophomore receiver D’Lance Sharp. The point after missed and Commerce took a 6-0 lead with 3:39 left in the first quarter.

  The rest of the first half was a defensive battle, but Commerce scored with just 26 seconds left on a 7-yard pass to Wilson after Wilson had ripped off 43 yards on a fake punt run earlier in the drive. The two-point attempt failed, and it was 12-0 Commerce at halftime.

  In the second half, Pottsboro brought out starting quarterback Tanner Frye, who was rested in the first half. With that change, the momentum of the game changed.
