Bearcats bounce Burleson


FORT WORTH — While there may have been a shortage of space in the relatively new Ranger Stadium press box at Chisholm Trail High School on Friday, there was certainly  no shortage of proficiency by the Aledo offense ... nor the defense ... nor the special teams.

The Bearcats cranked up the intensity another notch in the opening round of Class 4A, Division II, Region I play, dealing the Burleson Elks a 76-6 whippin’, and putting most of its offensive prowess on display for the nearly-full visitors stands populated by the Aledo faithful.

Asked if he imagined the potential of the Bearcats’ numerous offensive weapons would be so formidable coming into the 2013 season, Aledo head coach Tim Buchanan ceded that he was certainly hopeful that was going to be the case.

Thus far in the 2013 season, those high hopes are being realized.

Receiving the first kickoff, the Elks made a first down in its first possession, but would suffer a long drought from a follow-up, with the Aledo first-line defenders imposing their will throughout the rest of the first half.

On the other side of the ball, Aledo loosed the offensive canons from the start, scoring on all eight of its first-half possessions. 

After a pair of large-chunks-at-a-time drives culminated with Jess Anders’ 10-yard TD and Daythan Davis’ 19-yard rambling score, Ryan Newsome took the third of Burleson’s 10 punts on the night all the way to pay dirt, skirting the Elks’ left perimeter to outrun everyone for a 55-yard touchdown.

On his next touch, this time from scrimmage, the speedy Newsome would weave and sprint to a 60-yard scoring run.

The tone was set early and more of the same would ensue, as Aledo shared the wealth of scoring among its players.
