Late Steer touchdown trumps Springtown comeback

Staff Report

Inserting freshman quarterback Landry Turner turned out to be a good thing for Springtown on Friday, as the Porcupines took a 3-point lead over  Graham with two and a half minutes left in the game. But an 8-play, 80 yard drive by the Steers spoiled the comeback, and Turner’s varsity debut, as Pojo fell to Graham, 32-28, in a non-district match at Graham.

With junior QB Colby Moore unavailable, Clinton Kierych got the start and was relieved by Turner in the first half. The freshman made his presence felt in the final minute of the first half, finding tight end Bryson Burtnett for a 10-yard scoring strike. Both Springtown backups were effective for the Porcupines, combining for 17 of 25 passes completed for 195 yards, two touchdowns and just one interception.

Pojo running back Tyler Robertson had a breakout game, carrying the ball 32 times for 154 yards and two TDs.

Springtown (2-3) heads for a week off and will begin District 6-3A play at Kennedale on Oct. 12., with kickoff set for 7:30 p.m.


Second half Eagle surge spoils Millsap opener

Staff Report

Millsap quarterback Bradley Bottoms TD run, with the extra point tacked on by Mitchell Coker, gave the Bulldogs a 7-6 lead heading into the half as Millsap opened its District 6-2A schedule at Rio Vista, Friday. But unable to answer 25 Eagles points after the break, Millsap fell in its district premier, 31-7.

Bottoms scoring jaunt was in contrast to the minus 50 yards the sophomore suffered in sacks for the game. Millsap was able to get its running game in better shape, with Kristian Martinez and Andrew Tyson combining for 170 ground yards.

Timothy Newberry led the defensive effort for the Bulldogs with nine tackles, including a sack and a forced fumble. Daulton Thomas also had nine takedowns and an interception.
