’Stangs prepare with romp, too
Kennon Holder scored on each of his three first-quarter carries and then essentially took the remainder of the night off as No. 3 Huntingdon tuned up for this week’s showdown with second-ranked Union City by routing Bruceton 55-0 Friday.
Holder had scoring sprints of 30, 23 and 74 yards in the opening period, finishing with 127 yards on just three carries.
The senior scatback, who set a state single-game rushing record with 503 yards in a playoff game against USJ last season, leads all rural West Tennessee rushers so far this year with 546 yards and nine touchdowns in three games.
The Mustangs (2-1, 1-0 in District 13A) ran for 438 yards in all vs. Bruceton and did not attempt a pass.
They also forced five turnovers and limited the Tigers (0-2, 0-1) to just 71 total yards.
In other Week 2 games of local interest from Friday:
Milan 24, Westview 7
Number-two ranked Milan (3A) improved to 3-0 and dropped the Chargers to 0-3 as Avery Williamson ran for 147 yards and a touchdown on 10 attempts.
Jobronski Gilbert had a short scoring plunge and Rick Moody booted a 44-yard field goal for the victors.
Tanner Spencer threw for 161 yards to pace Westview.
Humboldt 35, Lake Co. 27
Despite playing without injured star running back Quan Campbell, the Vikings bolted to a 28-0 halftime lead before having to hold off a spirited LC comeback.
K.J. Montague rushed for 136 yards and two TDs and caught a 52-yard pass from Darren Dunbar for a third score to lead H’bolt to its second win in three games and first in 14A play.
Sam Hays threw two touchdown passes and Patrick Robertson ran for a score and threw for another for the Falcons (2-1, 0-1).
Campbell, rural West Tennessee’s No. 2-ranked rusher after two games with 315 yards, is questionable for this week’s game against Milan.
