Wortham downs Hillsboro JV, 16-6

Wortham —

Behind 113 total yards of offense and two touchdown passes from Witty Busby, the Wortham Bulldogs got by a stingy Class 3A Hillsboro JV team to move to 1-0 on the season.

Wortham was originally scheduled to open with Texas Wind, which canceled earlier this week.

The Bulldogs scored first with 5:58 left in the first quarter when Busby tossed an 8-yard strike to Kenneth Freeman on a fade route in the end zone. After a Daniel Trantham run for two, the Bulldogs were up 8-0. The Wortham defense would shut down the Hillsboro offense for the rest of the half. The offenses put the ball on the turf a combined five times in the first half.

After the half, the Eagles came out and put the clamps on the Bulldogs. The Eagles marched down the field on a 10-play drive capped off by a 29-yard touchdown reception by Harrison Bailey from quarterback Fisher Woodard. The point after kick was blocked by Freeman, leaving the Bulldogs up by a score of 8-6. 

With 5:33 left in the game, Wortham got what ultimately decided the contest with a blocked 33-yard field goal by Steven Hutson. After a return for 15-yards to the Bulldogs own 40, Busby led the Bulldog offense on the game winning drive and tossed a 15-yard touchdown to Rudy Miller with just 2:54 left in the game. A Zach Jones two-point conversion pass to Jordan Lansford lifted Wortham to a 16-6 lead that they would not give up.

  • GC Baseball/Softball: Mildred names Zamzow new baseball coach; AD Chambliess to coach softball again

         The Mildred Eagles didn’t have to go far to find a new baseball coach to replace Aaron Tidwell, who left the diamond to take the job as the principal of Mildred High School.
        On Saturday, Mildred named softball coach Brett Zamzow its new baseball coach as Zamzow, who was Tidwell's assistant for five years,  moves back to baseball after spending a year coaching softball.
