Granbury continued its early season roll Friday at Clark Stadium, notching its fourth consecutive win and its second straight to open District 7-4A play with a 21-0 win at Fort Worth Wyatt (2-3, 0-2).
But the Pirates' latest win wasn't as one-sided as the score indicated. Niether offense could find footing in the first quarter, and the defensive stalemate ended early in the second quarter when Granbury running back Justice Love scampered into the end zone from 24 yards out.
That play capped a three-play, 60-yard drive that gave the Pirates (4-1, 2-0 District 7-4A) a jump-start offensively. Granbury made heavy use of its wildcat offense from that point on.
Granbury outgained Wyatt 288-139 in rushing yards. Love finished the game with 67 yards and two scores on 11 carries, and wildcat-quarterback Brandon Fichter led the Pirate rushing attack with 16 carries for 151 yards and a touchdown.
The Pirates took a 14-0 lead into halftime, but Wyatt's defense did its best to get the Chaparrals back into the game, recovering three fumbles in the second half.
But Granbury sealed the win with a late drive that ate up seven minutes of the fourth quarter and ended with Love's second touchdown run, this one from 17 yards.
