Football: Ralston’s rushing attack fuels Argyle rout of Paris

Comments () A Text Size

PARIS — Sophomore running back Nick Ralston’s gritty effort led the way for the Argyle Eagles in their 41-8 rout of the Paris Wildcats on Friday night at Wildcat Stadium.

Ralston ran for 173 yards and two touchdowns, wearing down a weary Paris defense, which was on the field quite often due to an overall lack of production by the offense.

Ralston’s success allowed the rest of the offense to take shape, as quarterback Brandon Boyzuick passed for a pair of second-half touchdowns. One of the scores was a 43-yarder to Ian Sadler, who finished with 123 receiving yards, and the other was a 23-yarder to Chance Bode.

Argyle kicker Cole Hedlund gave the Eagles a 6-0 lead with a pair of field goals early in the game before Ralston and Connor Wilson scored a rushing touchdown apiece in the first half to take a 21-0 lead at halftime.

Ralston’s 4-yard run on the first drive of the second half allowed Argyle (2-1) to tack on another score early in the third. Boyzuick’s touchdown passes rounded out the scoring for the Eagles.

Boyzuick was 7-for-18 passing for 149 yards.

Argyle’s defense was equally impressive, as it forced a fumble and Colton Katzen had an interception.

The lone touchdown for Paris (1-2) came from quarterback Keandre Robinson on a 9-yard run.

Argyle is scheduled to play host to Kennedale on Friday.
