Rebels Roll to Big Win over Dons
Tascosa rolled up over 500 yards on the ground and rushed past Palo Duro 36-7 in high school football on Thursday.
The Rebels scored on their first four possessions of the game and dominated with long, time-consuming drives to improve to 2-1 on the season. The Palo Duro defense had no answer for the Tascosa “flex-bone” offense as the Rebels finished the night with 557 yards on the ground behind their rotating quarterbacks, Joseph Plunk and Evan Enos. Running back King Dorue had two short touchdown runs while Ayden Noriega led all rushers with 115 yards on seven carries.
The Dons didn’t get on the scoreboard until the third quarter when Tony Green rumbled in from 29 yards out. Green was a bright spot for Palo Duro with 184 yards rushing on the night but PD fell to 1-2 with the loss.
Also last night, Plainview picked up its first win of the season. The Bulldogs defeated Lubbock High 21-14.
