East Central 48
C.C. King 0

CORPUS CHRISTI -- The East Central Hornet football team has struggled with consistency this year, but the team was hitting on all cylinders last Saturday as they traveled to Corpus Christi to take on King High School. The Hornets blew the Mustangs out of the game early, scoring four times in the first 12 minutes of the contest, and returning home with a convincing 48-0 win.

Chris Armstrong scored the Hornets’ first touchdown of the night on a 1-yard run across the goal line. The second score then came through the air, as Christian Jones connected with Kyle Ramon from 25 yards out. After a pair of Blayne Sells extra points, East Central led 14-0.

The Hornets weren’t finished in the quarter, though, and tacked on two more touchdowns. Armstrong ran one in from 5 yards out for his second of the night, and Latham Walleck got involved with a 6-yard touchdown run. Sells booted the extra points, and the Hornets enjoyed a 28-0 lead after one quarter of play. No one scored in the second quarter, and the halftime score remained 28-0.

In the third quarter, Brae-don Robinson got in on the scoring action with a thundering 1-yard run across the goal line. Sells booted the extra point, and the score was 35-0 as the teams moved into the final quarter of play.

Christian Luna scored his first touchdown of the year with a 4-yard run in the fourth, and Jeremy Jones later ran one in from 3 yards out. Sells kicked one extra point, but a failed 2-point opportunity left the Hornets up 48-0, a score that would prove final.

On the stats chart, Christian Jones completed five of 11 passes in the game for 102 yards and a touchdown. Kyle Ramon caught three of those passes for 77 yards, Brett Casey caught one pass for 13 yards, and Kyle Padalecki caught another for 12.

Armstrong led the Hornet running game with 99 yards on 22 carries, followed by Edwin Dearring with 49 yards on eight carries. East Central also received rushing contributions from Orlando Acevado, Jeremy Jones, Walleck, Luna, Christian Jones, Robinson, and Carl Cleveland.

The win evens the Hornets’ overall record at 3-3, and gives the team the 1-0 start it needed in district play. East Central will host Southwest this Friday, Oct. 14, beginning at 7:30 p.m. in Hornet Stadium.
