Wortham loses to Cayuga 49-8

WORTHAM — The Wortham Bulldogs ran into a high powered Cayuga Wildcat team tonight losing their second game of the year by a final score of 49-8 to move to 1-2 on the season. Cayugas' Keshawn Jackson and John Venable had over 100-yards each to pace the now 3-0 Wildcats.


Cayuga scored on it's first three possessions of the game. Cayuga Quarterback, John  Vickery started the Wilcats scoring tonight on the first play of the game by hitting a streaking Colten Hearrell on a 65-yard TD strike to shock the Wortham fans at the 11:30 mark of the first. The snap for the PAT was botched leaving the score Cayuga 6, Wortham 0. Less than four minutes later Cayuga used their bruising running back John Venable to rumble 58-yards to pay-dirt scoring the second score of the game. A Vickery pass to Chris Wilson moved the score to 14-0 in favor of Cayugae with 7:57 still left in the first. After a quick 3 and out by Wortham, Cayugas' Keshawn Jackson jaunted into the endzone untouched from 35-yards out. Jayson Johnsons' kick split the uprights bringing the score 31-0. Cayuga would not look back after a Payton Wallace 16 run and a Johnson kick to end all first half scoring up 28-0 going into the half.


Wortham did hold Cayuga to only one score in the third period and it was a 55-yard Venable scamper. The Johnson PAT was good leaving Cayuga up by a score of 42-0. Wortham would sustain a fourth quarter drive with Witty Busby scoring on a 1-yard plunge with the game well out of hand. Busby then called his number for a perfectly executed swinging gate play for the two-point conversion.  


For Wortham tonight Busby led Wortham with 16 carries for 67 yards. On the defensive side of the ball, Angus Worcester, Skylar Jordan, and Blake Hudson all had standout performances.

  • 7-23-14 Kayana.jpg Gymnastics: Kaylana Dickson

    Kaylana Dickson got the name Bebop on her way to winning a national title in gymnastics this summer, and boy did it catch fire.
    Kaylana, a Corsicana native, picked up fans from all over the country and many bought Bebop T-shirts to help pay her expenses to Spokane, Wa., where she won the 8-and-under title in the double-mini trampoline event and finished third in floor exercise.
    More than 100 of her friends, family members and fans showed up at the Corsicana YMCA on Saturday to celebrate the national title and be on hand for a drawing for an autographed New Orleans Saints football jersey from David Hawthorne, a star defensive lineman for the Saints and Kaylana's uncle

    Call it the rarest of rares, at least as far as all-state teams go. Brett Anderson of Kerens shows up on the Texas Sports Writers Association/Collin Street Bakery all-state team not one, not two, not three, but four times. Dawson's Lane Dotson was a second-team outfielder, and the Bulldogs' Trent Underwood made the third-team as a pitcher, and also garnered an honorable mention nod at first base. Kerens outfielder Brent Warren was also an honorable mention pick.

  • RON MORGAN.jpg Morgan: All-star games and all-star shame

    If there is anything more useless than a political promise, it’s an all-star game. I don’t care what sport at what level. Any all-star game is simply an exhibition, a reward for being among the best (maybe). Any one of them is about as relevant as the IRS’s “dog ate my homework” excuse for losing emails.
