Saginaw Boswell defeated Fort Worth Polytechnic 57-13 on Friday night at Pioneer Stadium in a District 6-4A game that the Pioneers ran away with from the beginning.
Boswell’s offense put up big numbers in the blowout victory. The Pioneers (2-2, 2-0 in 6-4A) were led by Kyius McNeal’s 15 carries for 113 yards and Drew Bicknell’s 10 carries for 111 yards. Poly dropped to 0-3, 0-1.
In the loss, Polytechnic’s offensive charge was spearheaded by the tandem of quarterback Darius Rogers (6-for-10, 106 yards, two touchdowns) and receiver Frederick Carter (4 catches, 100 yards) who caught two touchdown passes.
Boswell running back Antoine Stevenson scored twice in the first quarter on his first three carries, both on runs of 4 yards. McNeal added two more touchdowns on the ground as Boswell pounded Polytechnic’s defense for 325 rushing yards.
Boswell’s defense kept the Parrots’ offense stagnant, giving up only 15 rushing yards in the first half and 55 yards overall. The Pioneers’ defense also contributed to the high scoring effort, adding a safety and a 14-yard fumble return by Lamont Hunter in the first quarter. Hunter also had an interception.
Boswell quarterback Bicknell had a big game through the air. The senior quarterback went 6-for-6 for 116 yards and two touchdowns. Boswell receivers Lemuel Gayle and Alex Martinez had touchdown catches of 25 and 39 yards, respectively.
Rogers insertion at quarterback seemed to energize the Polytechnic offense, but it couldn’t keep up with the Boswell attack.
Polytechnic scored only two touchdowns, on passes from Rogers to Carter of 20 and 24 yards. Anthony Redic added 28 yards on the ground.
