Sachse throttles North Garland for record-setting district win
The area spotlight has been focused on Sachse like never before after the team's impressive 4-0 start to the season.
But any worries that the Mustangs might let the headlines and the attention go to their heads was quickly erased on Friday.
Sachse scored 30 points in the first quarter and was resting its starters comfortably by the second half as they rolled to a 50-8 victory over North Garland on Homecoming night at Williams Stadium.
The Mustangs improved to 5-0 overall and 1-0 in 11-5A as they set a new school record for margin of victory in a district game, replacing last year's 33-point spread in a 59-26 win over Naaman Forest.
There are several area quarterbacks who have not thrown for six touchdowns on the season, but Sachse junior Kent Myers needed only one half to reach that total.
Myers wasted little time, throwing a 14-yard scoring pass to Darion Smalls to take an early 7-0 lead. The Mustang defense got into the scoring effort by recording a safety, and after the ensuing kick, Myers threw a 30-yard touchdown pass to Bruce Brookins that made it 16-0.
That duo was just getting warmed up. Sachse was pinned deep in its own territory on its next drive, but Myers found Brookins open and he did the rest on a 93-yard touchdown, the longest play from scrimmage for the team this season.
Myers and Brookins got together one more time, this time on a 63-yard score, to push the advantage to 30-0 at the end of the first quarter.
Sachse was not finished in the opening half, as Myers threw touchdown passes of 18 yards to Orlando Williams and 26 yards to Austin Williams to make it 44-0 at halftime.
Playing with mostly reserves in the second half, the Mustangs did score once on a touchdown run from Devine Ozigbo to reach 50 points.
North Garland got on the scoreboard with a touchdown run by George Perry but that would be the highlight for a Raider offense that managed only 142 total yards.
