Hubbard’s Jags open with 58-6 win against Rice

Rice — Logan McClinton rushed for 235 yards and a touchdown on only 12 carries, and Trey Henderson scored four touchdowns as the Hubbard Jaguars (1-0) opened the 2013 season with a 58-6 victory of the Rice Bulldogs. Chris Atchley led the Bulldogs (0-1) with 103 yards and Rice’s only touchdown on 22 carries.

Rice took the opening kickoff and picked up two quick first downs, but the drive stalled after a penalty wiped out a big pass play from Dylynn Anderson to Atchley that had the Bulldogs in scoring position.  

After forcing a Bulldog punt, Hubbard scored quickly to take an early 6-0 lead.  The Jaguars moved 64 yards in only two plays on a drive that took less than 20 seconds. The drive culminated when Henderson scored his first touchdown of the night on a 2-yard plunge.  The touchdown was set up by McClinton’s 68-yard run to get the Jaguars inside the 5 yard-line.

Hubbard’s defense took over and gave the Jaguars’ excellent field position to set up the next two scores. Hudson Alderman’s fumble recovery and Braydyn Gillham’s interception would give the Jaguars the ball in Bulldog territory. Both drives ended with touchdowns on short runs by Henderson.  

Then, on the first play of the second quarter, Nick Johnson would intercept an Anderson pass and return it 17 yards for a touchdown. Casen Martin added the two-point conversion and the Jaguars increased their lead to 26-0.

Hubbard would add one more score before halftime, as Martin scored on a 17-yard quarterback keeper midway through the second quarter. The big play on the drive was a 51-yard reception by D’Warren Simmons on a pass from Martin.

The Jaguars added two more scores in the third quarter.  Hubbard held the ball for more than seven minutes on an 11-play, 62-yard drive that ended with a Martin pass to Simmons on 4th down for a 25-yard touchdown.

Later, Henderson added his fourth score of the night, this time on an 8-yard run to push the Jaguar lead to 50-0.

TheBulldogs responded with their only scoring drive of the night, going 80 yards in eight plays, highlighted by a 28-yard run by Gonzalez and a 30-yard run by Atchley.  Atchley finished the drive with a 1-yard run to cut the lead to 50-6.  The extra point attempt was blocked by Hubbard’s Felix Washington and the ball bounced off the crossbar.

Hubbard closed out the scoring on a 9-yard run by McClinton and a two-point conversion by Martin late in the fourth quarter.

Hubbard goes back on the road next week as the Jaguars travel to Bosqueville, while the Bulldogs travel to Eustace.

 Both games begin at 7:30.

  • CHS SotfballSpence.jpg GC Softball: Playoff Time

    There  were some bumps on the road and slides in the standings and a few bruises along the way, but five Golden Circle teams have reached the softball playoffs that begin with first round games on Thursday.
    For Corsicana it was a wakeup call during the second half of district play that gave the Tigers the push they needed, and for Mildred it was the culmination of yet another splendid season as the Lady Eagles made the playoffs for the fifth straight season. Blooming Grove is back again, a regular in post season play with a chance to make a run, and Hubbard begins its quest to get to the state tournament and Austin with a one-game playoff on Thursday against Itasca in Italy.

  • NVSBAhearn.jpg Navarro Softball: Bulldogs split with Kilgore, win final home game

    Kristen Ahearn was mad, steaming.
    Even her peanut butter and jelly sandwich that she ate between the doubleheader games didn't taste good. Nothing fit. Nothing was in sync. Nothing felt right or even tasted right.
    Then Ahearn found the cure.
    Simple enough: Just go out and blast a three-run homer.
    That's the short version of what happened Tuesday at Navarro College, where Ahearn's three-run bomb ignited the Bulldogs in the second game against Kilgore and Navarro went on to win 8-5 to close out its regular season with a bang and a smile from Ahearn.

    The wait is over.
    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.
