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.

    One down, two to go.
    “It's in our hands,'' said Blooming Grove Coach Matt Anderson moments after his kids beat Rice 8-0 Friday night. “As long as we take care of our business we'll be fine.''

  • GC Basketball/Baseball: Mildred's Connor Hill sees life clearly

    There was never any doubt for Connor Hill, never any question about what he would do or how he would do it.
    Sure, there was that meeting with his mother and father and talks with the doctor when he was 10, talks and meetings that came accompanied with worry and concern.
    But never from Connor.
    He just never dwelled on the fact he played sports with one eye. He didn't worry or talk about it when he was 10 and he never talked about it at Mildred High, where Hill emerged as a star on the basketball court and baseball diamond.

    Am I just that old, or have amateur athletics gone absolutely nuts these days? On second thought, don’t answer that unless it’s yes to the nuts part.
    High School and college basketball are on the verge of being totally ruined by AAU basketball. Top roundball prospects are identified by the junior high level if not earlier.
