The JV green football team picked up its first win of the season last week as they defeated the Wranglers 35-8.
After not scoring on the first drive, the Indians got on the board with an 11-play drive that finished with Kyle Huskins passing to Chris Littrell for a two-yard touchdown to go up 7-0.
The Indians scored again with another 11-play drive that finished with another touchdown pass by Huskins, this time to Chaznick McGee from nine yards out. A couple plays before the score, McGee had the highlight play of the game with a big fourth-down catch to keep the drive alive when he reached back and low for a one-handed catch on a slant route.
Late in the second quarter, the defense came up with a big turnover as Tim Malloy fell on a fumble.
On the first drive of the second half, the Indians went up 21-0 with a four-play drive thanks to a short field after a 48-yard punt return from Jamil Easley. Huskins capped the drive when he threw his third touchdown on a fourth-down play to AJ Cortez from 15 yards out.
The third quarter ended with the Indians up 21-8.
Huskins left after the third quarter to allow Malloy to get some reps at quarterback. Huskins finished very efficiently with 10 completions on 12 passes for 124 yards and three touchdowns.
Malloy’s first drive ended with a score by Logan Houser on a reverse from three yards out to extend the lead to 28-8.
The Waxahachie defense, which had held the Wranglers for most of the evening, got another turnover when Kenyon Hargers jumped a route for an interception and returned it inside the red zone.
The Indians scored two plays later as DJ Jefferson ran into the end zone from 17 yards out to finish the offensive drives for the night and go up 35-8.
On the last play of the game, the Wranglers tried to throw one deep pass to the end zone, but it was picked off by McGee.
Standouts on the defense were McGee, Littrell, Houser and Easley as they kept the Wrangler passing game in check and the defensive line took care of the rushing game.
The Indians will face Corsicana at 6 p.m. Wednesday on the road.
