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.

  • 4-115-14CHSBBMinniear.jpg CHS Baseball: Lindale haunts Tigers again with critical 4-0 win

    Lindale has been poison to Corsicana all year.
    The Eagles won a bizarre game in Lindale to keep the Tigers out of the football playoffs and ruined the boys basketball season with two gut-wrenching wins in the final week of the season.
    They did it again Tuesday, beating the Tigers 4-0 at Price Field to take over second place in the District 16-4A race.
    Lindale (6-2) had one big inning to hand Corsicana (5-3) its second loss in a row.

    She prayed about it. She lost sleep about it. And she prayed about it some more.
    That's just a glimpse of what Marqueshia Kelly went through before deciding to turn down a half dozen basketball scholarships and accept a scholarship to play volleyball at Paris Junior College.
    The journey might have been a little sleepless, but in the end it wasn't that tough for Kelly, who is a multi-sport star at Kerens.
    “I followed my heart,'' she said on Tuesday just moments after signing a letter-of-intent to play volleyball at Paris in front of family, coaches and friends.
