ABILENE – Five different players scored, with Parker Settle and Joseph Plunk each rushing for three touchdowns, as the Tascosa Rebels blew out Brownsville Hanna 55-7 at Abilene Christian University’s Wildcat Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Plunk had scores from 22, 17 and 9 yards in the first quarter as the Rebels quickly atoned for last year’s 35-19 loss in a game featuring teams separated by nearly 800 miles and just over 11 hours.
Settle had a pair of one-yard touchdown runs in the second quarter that were sandwiched around a 28-yard score from Ryan Barnett.

Tascosa (4-1 overall) had 13 different players that carried the ball and the Rebels gained 483 of their 564 yards on the ground.
“That’s the best game that we have played this year,” Tascosa coach Ken Plunk said. “Guys that come to practice every day and give the scout team looks, it’s always fun for us (to play them) because they get a chance to get better and it gives them a chance to get their confidence up.”
The Rebels extended the lead to 49-0 with 9:06 left in the third quarter when Joseph Plunk hit La’Toi Johnson for a 21-yard touchdown pass.
Hanna came back with an 18-yard touchdown pass to Josiah Meyers and then recovered a surprise onside kick to try and build momentum. The drive ended when Victor Campos lost a fumble on fourth down at the Tascosa 23 that LB Moore plucked out of midair and returned 67 yards to the Hanna 10.
On the next play, Settle finished off the scoring with a 10-yard run.
“I thought that (Settle and Joseph Plunk) did really well in the first half,” said Ken Plunk. “We blocked things well and we operated well.”
