Eagles soar past Caprock
A stellar offensive performance from Canyon quarterback Jay Defoor allowed the Eagles to win big, 50-27, over Caprock on Happy State Bank Field at Kimbrough Memorial Stadium Friday night.

Caprock running back Corbin Putman had a solid night on the ground for the Horns rushing for 88 yards on 18 carries with a touchdown. However, Caprock’s Tarik Williams was a do-it-all performer, rushing four times for 21 yards and receiving four passes for 66 yards and a touchdown.

Dumas‘ defense does it again
It was another superb night for Dumas as they blasted Plainview in a 56-0 route. The Demons accumulated 35 points in the first quarter alone, as they shutout the Bulldogs at Demon Stadium.
Defense has been a stronghold for the Demons so far for the Demons led by junior linebacking duo Daman Dill and Cade Cox. However, it was the Demons secondary that turned heads, holding without a completion. Friday’s win also makes eight straight quarters the Dumas defense has held Wichita Falls High or Plainview from scoring over the past two games.
Rushing was another big factor for the Demons, as they accumulated six touchdowns on the ground in the first half against a porous Bulldog defense.
Junior running back Jacob Mares rushed for 83 yards on seven attempts as he found the end zone three times in a monstrous performance.
Dumas quarterback Spencer Williams outperformed himself from last week’s 7-0 win over Wichita Falls High, completing seven passes for 165 yards and two touchdowns. Williams finished the night with an 87.5 completion percentage.
Plainview falls to 0-4 on the year while Dumas stays undefeated at 4-0
