Chris Gibson made sure the 2013 season for White Settlement Brewer got off on the right foot by rushing for 131 yards and three touchdowns in leading the Bears to a 42-0 victory Friday over Fort Worth Trimble Tech at Brewer Bear Stadium.
The junior quarterback only needed a few big plays to ruin Trimble Tech’s ball-control game plan. He had 90 yards on his first four carries, punctuated by a 69-yard dash to the end zone on which he outran a trail of Bulldogs.
“He’s a talented athlete, there’s no doubt about that,” Brewer coach Kord Smith said. “You could see it when he got into the secondary and turned on that fifth gear.”
He was finished after three quarters with a 28-0 lead and gave way to sophomores Brian Kueck and Colby Benton, who both led touchdown drives.
The Bears’ defense held the Bulldogs to just 40 yards of total offense. The Bears dominated the Trimble Tech offensive line and spent most of the night in the backfield.
Running back Daylon Tarkington was clearly the most impressive player for Trimble Tech, even if he only made it through one half.
Tarkington, who rushed for 67 yards on nine carries, made things interesting and frustrated Brewer by powering his way to long runs despite being hit behind the line of scrimmage.
For all that went Brewer’s way, the Bears committed 17 penalties for 135 yards. Trimble Tech wasn’t a beacon of clean play, either, committing seven penalties for 45 yards.
