Mineral Wells’ long football season came to an end Friday night as the Rams suffered a 61-8 loss to Wichita Falls Hirschi to end the year without a win.
Hirschi (5-4, 2-3) needed a victory to be assured of a playoff spot, and the Huskies opened the contest fast and furious to take an early lead.
By the time the dust had settled, the Huskies had accumulated 580 yards of offense, including 371 yards passing.
The Rams beaten and battered managed one touchdown when Jayce Holland found Lane Tuggle on a 35-yard pass that Tuggle pounded into the end zone over the final five yards. Cagen Blakley provided the extra-point run as the two seniors got to go out on a high note by scoring.
Starting quarterback, Braden Fryer entered the contest with cracked ribs and was limited in his play rushing the ball just six times and completing 6-10 passing for 31 yards.
Holland was 5-10 for 95 yards and a touchdown. Tristan Grey caught two passes for 42 yards while Ethan Marsh had four catches for 24 yards. The Rams posted 226 totals yards as a team.
The Huskies secured District 4-4A’s final playoff spot as Decatur, Springtown and Gainesville are all advancing to next week.
