RUNNING WILDThe Central High Bronchos outran the Allen Mustangs to remain unbeaten by rolling to a 66-24 victory last Friday night.
The Bronchos (3-0, 4-0) scored at least 14 points in every quarter led by another impressive rushing performance by running back Kevin Harris, who continues to put up video game type numbers.
Harris had 269 yards on just 11 carries and scored three touchdowns. Harris had three carries over 40 yards and five over 20. He averaged a little more than 24 yards per carry.
Mikel Womack also had three touchdown runs.
“I’ve been telling the guys for a while when all eight players do their assignments, good things are going to happen,” Central High coach Darren Lamar said. “We had a more of that than any other game we’ve had so far and we had a lot fewer missed blocks this game.
“We ran one lead play that we ran in the second half that I don’t think Kevin was touched until he got to the safety. If we can get that kind of effort from everybody in every game, I don’t think there is anybody that we can’t score against on any particular play.”
Central High led 14-6 at the end of the first quarter, but outscored the visitors 24-12 in the second to take a 38-18 lead. The Bronchos then added two touchdowns apiece in the third and fourth quarters, while the Mustangs added a lone score in the fourth.
Central High quarterback Kade Taylor made the most of his three pass attempts, completing all three including a touchdown. The touchdown was a 49-yard pass play to Tanner Childress for the Bronchos first score of the night.
Taylor also ran in another score also in the first quarter on a 35-yard run.
Three touchdown runs in the second quarter along with three two-point conversions.
Two of those scores came from Womack who had touchdown runs of eight and 31 yards that sandwiched a 6-yard run by Harris. Tayor had two of the conversions, while John Repp had the other as the Bronchos went on to take a 38-18 halftime lead.
Harris then got his final two scores of the game in the third quarter on runs of 27 and 32 yards. Ashton Wright ran in a two-point conversion as the lead was extended to 52-18.
The final two scores came on a 24-yard run by Womack, who had 103 yards on nine carries, and a 33-yard run by Tyler Lyles.
Central High amassed 442 yards rushing and added 65 yards passing for a total offensive output of 507 yards.
Lyles led the team on defense with 17 tackles.
“Defensively we had some pass coverage trouble, but we played well,” Lamar said. “Their coach wanted to talk with linebackers Tyler and Ashton after the game because they played so well. They are a run first team and while they had some success throwing, we got them out of what they wanted to do.”
The Bronchos travel to take on the Paoli Pugs (2-1, 2-2) this Friday.
