For the second straight week a panhandle team found out why Hollis is considered one of the top teams in Class A. Last week it was Hooker, this week Beaver was dropped 45-0 at home.
“The fact is we just got it handed to us tonight, and did not have any answers on either side of the ball,” Dusters head coach Mike McVay said. “They are that good and we still have a ways to go.”
Hollis wasted little time scoring three touchdowns on their first five offensive plays, and led 25-0 at the end of the first quarter.
The Bulldogs added one more score before half to take a 32-0 lead into the halftime locker room; then two more in the third for the final tally.
Hollis racked up 500 hundred yards of offense, and averaged over 11 yards per play. Beaver was held to just 105 yards, 98 of which came on 34 rushes. Beaver was held to just five first downs as well.
“They ran the option well and the few times they threw it, they threw it well,” McVay said. “They had us of guard. They are a good team, but I didn’t think we played up to our ability.”
Beaver (1-2) will now turn their attention to their first district game, Friday at Texhoma.
