Fort Worth Southwest running back Jameion Williams rushed for 138 yards and four touchdowns on Friday in a 62-14 rout of Fort Worth Western Hills at Farrington Field.
Quarterback Wesley Harris also threw for four scores, two to Willie Robinson in the first half from 34 and 53 yards. Harris also threw a 59-yard TD pass to Robbie Rhodes and added a 4-yarder to Brashad Jones.
Southwest (4-1, 2-0 in District 7-4A), went on its scoring romp after entering the second quarter with a 7-0 lead. Western Hills' defense stood up early despite a 3-yard TD run by Williams.
In the second quarter it was all offense for Southwest. After forcing a punt by Western Hills (2-3, 1-1), Southwest took over just inside their 50-yard line and needed two plays from Harris, first a 23-yard run to get deep inside Western Hills territory.
The drive ended with Harris' first touchdown pass to Robinson, from 34 yards, pushing the lead to 14-0.
It took little time for Southwest's offense to return to the field after another forced punt. Harris connected with Rhodes from 59 yards. After the failed extra point, Southwest led 20-0.
Western Hills running back Desmond Mize, who finished the game with 157 rushing yards, did what he could to keep the Cougars in the game in the first half. But a stalled drive gave possession back to Southwest, which scored with less than 30 seconds remaining in the half.
Robinson and Harris connected once more on a 53-yard strike, propelling Southwest to the 27-0 halftime lead.
Southwest outscored Western Hills 35-14 in the second half, as Williams added three more touchdown runs from 6, 49 and 58 yards.
Southwest led 48-7 entering the fourth quarter before Western Hills running back Raekwon Neal scored from 9 yards, though it was too little, too late. Southwest's Rhodes tacked on his second touchdown of the night with a 70-yard kickoff return after Neal's score.
