FW Dunbar's Offense Rolls in Big Win

Fort Worth Dunbar scored 34 second quarter points as they rolled to a 75-28 rout of the Fort Worth Polytechnic Parrots at Scarborough-Handley Field on Saturday.

FORT WORTH- It was a display of offensive prowess unlike most for Coach Todd Lawson's Fort Worth Dunbar Wildcats (5-1, 1-0) as they threw up 559 yards in a 75-28 win over the Fort Worth Polytechnic Parrots (2-4, 0-1) on Saturday afternoon at Scarborough-Handley Field. WR Darius White was one of many Wildcats who shined as he hauled in 6 passes for 123 yards and 2 touchdowns, while Dominique Sanders ran for 110 yards and 2 touchdowns as well. The difference in the game proved to be a 34 point second quarter as Dunbar turned a close game into a laugher.

Early on it appeared Poly would make a game of it as DL David Flores recovered a Brandon Jovilet fumble on the game's first play. Four plays later Poly would score on a 16 yard run by Duran Hollis and PHS led 6-0. Dunbar had a quick answer as QB Nicholas Rockwell hooked up Traylon Williams for a 27 yard screen pass for a score and the Wildcats led 7-6. After exchanging fumbles, Poly took a 13-6 lead as junior QB Damion Thornton scored from 43 yards out and heavy underdog Poly held a shocking 13-6 lead. PHS appeared to have even more momentum as Duran Hollis would pick of Rockwell and return it to all the way to the Dunbar 12 but as Hollis struggled for extra yards, he was stripped and a Dunbar WR recovered the loose ball and the Wildcats had new life. The Wildcats would quickly move 88 yards for a score as Rockwell scored on a 26 yard touchown run on the final play of the first quarter to take a 14-13 lead.

Early in the second quarter the two teams exchanged maybe one of the craziest sequences of plays seen in quite sometime. Poly lined up for a punt from their own 26 yard line, but the snap went over Duran Hollis' head and into the end zone. Hollis picked up the ball and tried to get the punt off as he was being tackled, however the ball didn't travel far and Dunbar's Trazail Tucker caught the ball at the one yard line and fell into the end zone for the rare one yard punt return for a touchdown and a 21-13 lead. Poly would not go away however as Ezekial Richardson would return the kickoff 92 yards for a score and the Parrots would tie the game at 21 as Trevor Dickerson caught the two point pass from Damion Thornton.

After that moment where the game was tied, Dunbar would rattle off 27 straight points as PHS fumbled three straight times and Dunbar scored four straight touchdowns to jump out to a 48-21 lead as Kenji Jones scored twice and Sanders and Rockwell mixed in runs.

Dunbar continued to dominate the second half rolling up big numbers and yards on their way to the big win. Next week Dunbar is idle, while Poly takes on Fort Worth Southwest in District 7-4A action.
