Santo, Perrin move to 2-0

SANTO – Santo quarterback Kyle Moore ran for two touchdowns and passed for another to lead the Wildcats to a 40-0 victory over Meridian here Friday night in a non-district clash.

Santo moves to 2-0 with the win and will host Dublin on Friday (Sept. 13).

“We opened up our new facilities in fine fashion,” Wildcats head coach Randy Thornton said. “This win ranks up there with the best of them.

“We played extremely well, and our defense set the tone early with physical play and sure tackling. Our offense also set a positive tone by taking eight minutes off the clock on our first scoring drive.

“The kids made plays on both sides of the ball and did a great job all night.”

Keith Chalker and Grant Gilbert each reached the end zone on the ground, with Garrett Nemeth catching a touchdown pass.

Perrin 48, Gorman 0

PERRIN – Pepper Rasberry scored four times on the ground and racked up 152 yards on 13 carries to lead the Perrin Pirates to a 48-0 victory over Gorman here Friday night in a non-district game.

The win elevates the Pirates to 2-0. Perrin will continue non-district play Friday (Sept. 13) at Saginaw Lake Country.

Perrin rushed for 411 yards on 36 carries for an impressive 11.4 yards per carry.

“I am so proud of our kids, and it feels good to be 2-0,” Pirates head coach Brad Hutton said. “These kids have impressed me by playing both ways and never letting up despite the heat and humidity. It is not easy to do that.

“I really thought our young linebackers and safeties played very well. We played well on both sides of the ball, but we aren’t satisfied. We still have a lot of work to do.”

Defensively, Mason Bowland led the Pirates with 13 tackles, with River Martin and Cooper Young each intercepting a pass. Eddie Brock and Creede Lee each forced a fumble.

Other Pirates also had big games offensively as Justin Francis rushed for 132 yards on 12 carries with one touchdown; Levi Galliher carried three times for 38 yards and a score; and Spencer Nunley gained 87 yards on six totes. The Pirates also recorded a touchdown on defense when Garrett Galliher scooped and scored on a 40-yard fumble return.

J.P. Monroe was five for seven on extra point attempts, and Rasberry ran in a two-point conversion.

DTSCA 42, CCS 26

Dallas Tyler Street outlasted the Community Christian School Warriors, 42-26, Friday night in non-district action at Miller Stadium.

The loss drops the Warriors to 0-2. CCS will play next on Saturday at Red Oak against Ovilla.

“We progressed from last week,” Warriors head coach Bryan Horton said. “The guys fixed their mistakes form last week, but we found some new ones.

“But these guys will go back to work to fix that. We have played two tough opponents in a row, and I am happy the guys played hard. We will go back to work to fix those mental mistakes.”

CCS took a 6-0 lead when Isaiah Brazeal reached the end zone on a 48-yard interception return. The pick off was helped by extreme pass-rush pressure by Sammy Brazeal.

But Tyler Street scored 18 unanswered points to take an 18-6 lead at the break.

CCS scored three more times in the second half. Isaiah Brazeal found another route to the end zone when he scored on an 80-yard kickoff return.

The Warriors would close the scoring on a 14-yard touchdown pass by Joby Bradshaw to Brandon Bolt, and a one-yard TD plunge from Sammy Brazeal.

Gordon 56, Faith 6

GORDON – Gordon evened its record to 1-1 after a 56-6 win over Stephenville Faith here Friday in a game stopped in the second half on the 45-point mercy rule.

Jake Wiginton scored four touchdowns, and the Gordon defense forced four turnovers and scored twice.

“We had a balanced attack, and we scored on defense,” Longhorns head coach Joe Kositiha said. “It is nice to get a win, but I am more pleased that we played better this week.

“Our offensive line blocked very well, and that allowed a lot of backs to gain a ton of yards.”

The Longhorns will continue non-district play on Friday (Sept. 13) at home against Blanket.

Dublin 17, Millsap 0

DUBLIN – Dublin’s defense was the story of the contest as the Lions shut out the Millsap Bulldogs, 17-0, here Friday night in a non-district contest.

The Bulldogs (0-2) will take next week off and continue non-district action on Sept. 20 at home against Windthorst.

  • FB Gordon at Strawn b8.jpg FWIW: Good, clean hate – Ranking the area's best rivalry games of the 2014 football season


    Football season is fast approaching and with it those glorious games between teams that love to hate each other, which we call rivalries.

    I'm speaking, of course, about sports hate – the only beautiful kind. It's the stuff built on history and tradition that inspires simply the fiercest and most entertaining games of every season.

    Palo Pinto County and the surrounding area have no shortage of fierce football rivalries.

    The University Interscholastic League's realignment often causes new rivalries to be born and old ones to be rekindled. But which rivalries are the area's very best for 2014? The one's you circle your calendar for and make sure you don't miss.

    I can think of at least 10.

    So, for what it's worth, here's my list of the area's best, can't-miss football rivalries of the upcoming 2014 season.
