Rice Bulldogs earn first victory over Cross Roads, 48-12

(Continued)

RICE —

The Bulldogs increased the lead as Rice took the second half kickoff and scored quickly. Big runs by Peppers and Angel Oropeza set up Atchley’s second touchdown of the night to increase the Bulldog lead to 34-0.

Cross Roads finally found some offensive success with their passing game. The Bobcats scored on their next two possessions, both times on passes from Arden. The first touchdown, a 36-yard pass to Trey Hazelip, culminated an 8-play drive in which Arden completed 5 out of 6 passes.

After recovering an onside kick, Arden again led the Bobcats down the field. The drive ended with a 10-yard touchdown pass to Scilheimer to cut the Bulldog lead to 34-12 late in the third quarter. Arden finished the night with 18 completions in 29 attempts for 257 yards.

Any hope for a Bobcat comeback was quickly dashed as Rice only took three plays to score as Oropeza scored on a 48-yard run to increase the Bulldog lead to 41-12.

The Rice defense took over, stopping the Bobcats on interceptions by Reece Whitt and Reece Barlow. Whitt’s pick set up the final touchdown of the night, a 24-yard run by Dylynn Anderson.

Rice is off next week as the Bulldogs prepare to open district play at home against Scurry Rosser.
