Saginaw Boswell’s offense rolled up 390 yards on Thursday night, hammering Fort Worth North Side 56-0 at Farrington Field.
The win pushes Boswell above .500 to 4-3 on the season and into a solid third-place position in District 6-4A at 4-1.
Boswell built a 42-0 lead at the half thanks in part to touchdown runs by running back Antoine Stevenson and quarterback Drew Bicknell.
They accounted for Boswell’s first four scores before giving way to the first set of reserves midway through the second quarter.
Reserve quarterback Jordon Cox wasted no time, connecting on a screen pass to reserve running back James Wilson, who raced 53 yards to make it 35-0. Wilson added a rushing touchdown later in the quarter.
North Side (0-8, 0-6) struggled most of the night, managing only 28 yards of offense in the first half and no first downs.
Boswell’s front four was stifling on defense, forcing one Steers fumble on the third play of the game and recording four tackles for loss.
The Pioneers had three interceptions as well.
One pass that didn’t get picked off, though, resulted in a 66-yard play for the Steers and a chance to get on the scoreboard.
Quarterback Johnny Aviles lateraled to Tariq McCain, who fired a strike down the right sideline to Jaime Lara.
Lara, who had slipped behind coverage, raced to the Boswell 22-yard line, but couldn’t beat the Pioneers’ final defender.
Boswell’s Chuckie Fowler intercepted a pass to end the threat.
