Knox City and Spur combined for nearly 1,000 yards of offense – nearly two-thirds of a mile – in a marathon 104-56 score-fest last Friday which favored the visiting Bulldogs.
The loss puts the Greyhounds in second place in the district with a 3-1 mark, with an overall finish of 5-5 heading into the playoffs. Knox City is off this Friday and will face Borden County on Nov.
Spur had 13 points on the board in the first quarter and took a 21-0 lead before the Hounds could respond. Two of those scoring strikes were on Knox City turnovers.
Bryson Callaway finally got the home team on the board midway through the second quarter on an 11-yard scamper to cut Spur’s lead to 21-6. Both teams basically scored at will from that point but the stats favored the Bulldogs.
Callaway’s pass to Kobe Roberts led to a 38-yard score and cut the Spur lead down to 29-20. They would repeat this feat shortly before the half to get the score down to 37-28. But the Bulldogs would go ahead 52-28 early in the third and they never looked back.
Callaway found Roberts again for a 23-yard touchdown but Spur put up 14 more points for a 66-36 lead late in the third. Callaway would complete a pass to Cameron Hernandez for a 60-yard score but then Spur scored another 14 to take a commanding 82-42 lead into the fourth quarter.
Tristin Baxter had a 47-yard rushing TD and a 50-yard reception TD from Callaway to round out Knox City’s late scoring.
The Hounds dominated the field with 607 total yards while Spur managed 365. Many of Spur’s scores were on kickoff returns. Knox City was 18-for-33 through the air for 332 yards, with 275 yards on the ground.
Callaway was 17-for-30 for 322 yards and 5 touchdowns. Baxter had 124 yards and a TD, Roberts crossed 100 yards with his three scores, Hernandez amassed 69 yards and Nicholas Trevino had 33 to round out receiving leaders for the Hounds.
Baxter and Callaway shared rushing leader duties with 98 yards each, while Hernandez had 79 on 16 carries.
