If Fort Worth Dunbar’s assignment was to put its District 6-4A game out of reach before the sun set on Thursday, consider it a job well done by the visitors from Stop Six.
The Wildcats stormed to a 21-point lead in their first six plays of an eventual 63-0 romp over Fort Worth Carter-Riverside at Scarborough-Handley Field.
Dunbar stayed undefeated in 2013, at 7-0, employing an assortment of playmakers.
Quarterback La’Quarrian Peoples rushed for three touchdowns and passed for three more and accounted for 264 total yards from scrimmage for the Wildcats, who also improved to 4-0 in district.
“We have bigger goals, so we have to go out there and execute and come out on top,” coach Todd Lawson said. “The objective was to come out and be focused on the game and play our game.”
Peoples scored on runs of 16, 20 and 5 yards. He threw touchdown passes to Stepfawn Hughes, Taylor Martin and DeVonta Kinney of 27, 41 and 25 yards.
Martin, the Wildcats’ top running back, also rushed for a touchdown as part of his workload of nine carries for 124 yards.
“We still have more games to go,” said Peoples, a senior. “We’re trying to get to the best spot we can be at.
“We’re working, we’re getting there, but we still have more work to do.”
Dunbar leads the district race with Saginaw, also unbeaten, close behind. The two play Nov. 8. Saginaw Boswell is a game back.
Fred Pitts led Carter-Riverside (1-7, 1-5) with 75 yards rushing.
Defensively, the Wildcats turned the screws on the Eagles, holding the opposition to 93 yards.
Ty Watson returned an interception 53 yards for a touchdown and Hughes had another for Dunbar. Nick Johnson recovered a fumble that set up Peoples’ second TD run during a blistering first few minutes.
