ARLINGTON — It was a family affair Friday night in the Criss Bowl II at Wilemon Field, and coach Zachary Criss’ Arlington Sam Houston Texans were far from gracious hosts.
Sam Houston throttled coach Anthony Criss’ Fort Worth Wyatt Chaparrals 51-6 in season-opening action.
The first half started slowly, but a 34-yard punt return by Dawaune Sykes set up the Texans with the ball at the Wyatt 13-yard line.
Two plays later, Darrion Flowers started the scoring with a 13-yard run to give the Texans a 6-0 lead in the first quarter.
After a turnover on downs by Wyatt, junior quarterback Ervin Hill scampered 22 yards to extend Sam Houston’s lead to 12-0.
Wyatt finally got on the board in the second on a 17-yard touchdown run to give Wyatt its only score of the game.
Following that score, however, David Mustapha took the kickoff 97 yards to the end zone to give Sam Houston a 25-6 lead with Alexis Alvarez kicking the point after.
