Mildred clobbers Oak Cliff Life, 72-0

DALLAS — Draylon Sterling scored four touchdowns four different ways, and Mildred wrapped up the District 6-2A DII title without much resistance.

Sterling opened the scoring with a 9-yard run, and added a 67-yard punt return one minute into the second quarter as Mildred (8-1, 6-0) built a 28-0 lead. He added a 54-yard touchdown catch, and midway through third made it 65-0 when he returned an interception 37 yards.

Mildred quarterback Nic Shimonek topped 500 career completions, going 9 of 15 for 185 yards. He had four touchdown passes and added a 78-yard run down the left sideline. Jeremy Ballard had one of the touchdown receptions, and added two more scores on the ground.

Oak Cliff Life, a preseason playoff pick, fell to 1-8, 1-5. The Lions kept the ball for the entire fourth quarter, running 18 plays as the clock ran the entire second half. A touchdown pass was wiped out by an offensive pass interference call. The Lions got 71 of their 137 yards on the drive, and picked up five of their nine first downs on it.

    And it came just in time for Brett Anderson, who left it all on the mound Tuesday night at Kerens, where he pitched a masterpiece to lead the Bobcats over Cayuga, 5-1, and help the program win its first baseball district title since 1981.
    “I've got no gas left. I'm out,'' said Anderson, a senior lefty who stopped Cayuga cold, holding the three-time defending district champs to just three singles while striking out 14.
