Area-state high school football results

Bulldogs leashed by Tolar defense after opening TD

Staff Report

Millsap broke first ice in a District 6-2A, Div. II contest in Tolar on Friday, but the Rattlers responded early and often to take a 22-7 by the end of the first quarter.

After a scoreless second frame, Tolar resumed dominance, blanking the Bulldogs while adding four more scores en route to a 48-7 rout.

The final propelled Tolar to a 2-0 district mark (4-1 overall), with Millsap’s district record evening to 1-1, with a season mark of 2-3.

The Rattlers host Scurry-Rosser on Friday, while Millsap faces another tough road test, traveling to take on Corsicana Mildred.


Brock senior runs amok in Eagles’ romp past Windthorst

Staff Report

Brock senior running back/quarterback Slaten Gough continues to leave indelible entries in the early chapters of Eagles’ gridiron record books. 

Rushing for five touchdowns and throwing a scoring toss for another, Gough led the Brock offense in a 48-14 dissection of the Windthorst defense at Trojan Stadium on Friday.

In the first minute of play, Gough broke free for a 65-yard TD run, following up with a 70-yard jaunt barely two minutes later. He added scoring runs of 3, 5 and 20 yards, and connected with wideout Lance Ewell early in the fourth quarter for a 50-yard scoring toss.

The Eagles’ defense shut down Windthorst’s offense in the second half, as Brock improved its season record to 5-1 on the year in its free-lance slate.

After five consecutive contests on the road, the Eagles will return home on Friday, meeting Fort Worth Christian, who brings a season record of 3-2. The contest will be held at Brock’s Junior High Stadium at 7:30 p.m.
