Led by a persistent rushing attack, the Tyrone Bobcats pounded the Goodwell Eagles, 42-0 Friday night in Tyrone, Okla.
The Bobcat offensive line was too much for the Eagles defenders to handle. Tyrone put the ball on the ground and ran right at Goodwell all night.
Mixing up the punishing ground game with the occasional long toss down the field kept the Eagle defenders off-balance, and unable to stop the Bobcat attack.
Running backs Ethan Reece and Ryon Reese worked together to wear-out the Eagles front line of defense, giving quarterback Tanner Hurst the opportunity to catch the Goodwell secondary off-guard and hit the open receivers.
The Bobcat defenders also came up big, forcing fumbles and shutting down the Eagles passing attack.
Tyrone scored 18 points in the first half on three touchdowns, but was not able to convert on the two-point conversions.
They scored three more touchdowns, converting all three of their two-point conversions in the second half.
The win is the first of the season for the Bobcats, and they now stand at 1-1 on the young season.
Tyrone will be on the road next week taking on Sharon-Mutual in Mutual, Okla.
