Waxahachie’s freshman green team overcame an early deficit last week to beat University, 26-8.
The Indians got on the board first on a 2-yard quarterback sneak by Demarcus Waters.
It did not take long for University to respond. On the first play of University’s next possession, the running back scampered 55 yards for a touchdown. The 2-point conversion gave the Trojans an 8-6 lead midway through the first quarter.
Waxahachie took its second lead midway through the second quarter when D.Q. Robinson took a handoff 66 yards, giving the Indians a 12-8 lead.
The Indians recovered an onside kick after the touchdown and needed just four plays to add another score.
Waters threw a 5-yard pass to Tanner Brady for the final touchdown of the first half with the Indians taking an 18-8 lead.
Waxahachie scored its final touchdown in the third quarter on a 25-yard run by Waters. Robinson ran in the 2-point conversion for the Indians’ 26-8 lead.
“Tonight we dominated a pretty good football team,” coach Damon Miller said. “It wasn’t as close as the scoreboard indicated. Our defense was incredible. We only allowed one first down and that was on the long touchdown run in the first quarter.”
The Indians’ next game will be at 5:30 Thursday, Sept. 20 against Fort Worth Arlington Heights.
