KRUM — Reed Flores ran all over the Wichita Falls Hirschi defense, scoring four touchdowns on 197 yards rushing as Krum trounced the Huskies (0-5) 48-12 at Bobcat Stadium on Friday night.

The Bobcats’ offensive line dominated the battle in the trenches as Krum’s running backs combined to run for more than 400 yards.

“That offensive line is really coming on strong and doing a great job blocking for Reed,” Krum head coach Gary Robinson said. “Reed has that workman-like running style that gets first downs for us and moves the chains.”

Quarterback Caz Wojciak carried the ball 12 times for 99 yards and scored two touchdowns on the ground for the Bobcats (5-0). Wojciak also completed two passes on five attempts for 22 yards.

Krum’s defense took some time to adjust to Hirschi’s speed on offense but managed to pitch a shutout in the second half.

“They’re a great team over there at Wichita Falls,” Robinson said. “The thing that makes them good is their speed. It just took us a little time to get adjusted to that speed but once we got adjusted they played like the Bobcat defense normally plays.”

The Bobcats’ defense caused a fumble on the second play of the third quarter and recovered the ball on Hirschi’s 8-yard line. Wojciak weaved through the Huskies’ defense on the next play for his second score to push Krum’s lead to 21 with 11:09 left in the third quarter.

Penalty flags plagued Hirschi (0-5) all night, committing 14 penalties for 200 yards; 12 of the 14 penalties were personal fouls.

Hirschi quarterback Terrance Cooper completed 5 of 12 passes for 124 yards and a touchdown. Cooper also added 46 yards and another score on the ground.

Krum dominated on it’s first possession of the game as five players carried the ball for 50 yards before Flores found the end zone from 2 yards out to give Krum an early 7-0 lead with 9:48 left in the first quarter.

Krum benefitted from an errant punt early in the first quarter, when Hirschi’s punter booted the ball straight up into the air at his own 20–yard line. Krum defender Travis White scooped the ball up and ran 19 yards down to the 1-yard line. Wojciak punched it in from a yard out on the next play to increase the Bobcats’ lead to 13-0 with 5:17 left in the quarter.
