Football: Whitesboro crushes Ponder 49-0

Comments () A Text Size

PONDER — The Ponder Lions (2-3) opened District 5-2A Division 1 play with a sloppy performance filled with turnovers, penalties that resulted in a 49-0 loss to the Whitesboro Bearcats.

The game was a lopsided affair from the beginning, in due part to Ponder and its inability to change its field position. Whitesboro took advantage and went to the ground game with their leading rusher, Collin Kilcrease, who ran for 106 yards and four touchdowns on 15 carries.

“We turned the ball too many times to that kind of team on our side of the field,” Ponder head coach Glen Schuelke said. “They are one of the best teams, if not the best team [in district].”

Whitesboro took over deep inside Ponder territory after the Lions fumbled the ball on their opening drive. The Bearcats made short work of the possession as Kyle Lynn scored on a quarterback sneak.

The Bearcats took control of the game when they returned a punt 60 yards to the Ponder 3. Kilcrease scored from there, and Whitesboro went on to score three more times in the first half.

In the second half, Ponder’s defense continued to give up big running plays. Kilcrease would quickly add another rushing touchdown and effectively end the first-team offense’s night. For most of the second half, Whitesboro would use its backups.

Ponder tried to respond with any kind of offense, but both the pass and the run weren’t there, and the defense was gashed for 264 yards rushing.

Ponder’s offense could only muster 46 yards rushing and 52 yards through the air.

“We weren’t moving the ball,” quarterback Brady Anderson said. “We made mistakes.”

Ponder tried to come up with answers.

“When your leading rusher doesn’t play and the others are dinged up, too, we just didn’t play well,” Schuelke said.
