Millsap running back Morgen DePriest broke free for a 37-yard TD run in the final quarter to cap the scoring for the night. Mitchell Coker added both PAT’s for the Bulldogs.
After two tough weeks on the road, Millsap returns home on Friday with hopes of evening its district record to stay in the mix. The Millsap Bulldogs will host the Rice Bulldogs at 7:30 p.m.
Second half miscues prove costly for Porcupines
For a second year in a row, Springtown held its own against a potent Kennedale offense only to see its fortunes fade in the second half in a District 6-3A match at home against the Wildcats on Friday.
Knotted 28-all at the half, the Porcupines fell prey to a 21-point burst from Kennedale in the third quarter, losing their district opener, 56-28. The Wildcats won the turnover battle in an other-wise statistical wash, with both teams generating just over 500 total yards each.
Pojo held the first-quarter lead by a touchdown after Springtown quarterback Landry Turner found wideout Dillon Springfield on TD tosses of 6 and 23 yards. Scoring twice more in the second quarter, Springtown saw the Wildcats get their offense busy, scoring 20 points to even the score before the half.
Even with four more district contests remaining, the loss may have relegated Pojo to another runner-up spot in the final standings, with both teams apt to hold serve for the balance of the slate.
Springtown will play the first of those remaining district tilts on Friday, traveling to take on the Castleberry Lions. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
