SPRINGTOWN — With a wide-open, hurry-up offense, Springtown (3-5, 2-1) jumped on top of Lake Worth (5-3, 2-1) early and cruised to a 49-7 win in District 6-3A action at Porcupine Stadium on Friday night.
Springtown scored on three of its first four possessions to lead 21-7 before the first quarter was over.
The Porcupines’ rifle-armed quarterback, Landry Turner, completed 28 of 38 passes for 286 yards and six touchdowns. His numbers would have been even better if several passes were not dropped.
On its second possession, Springtown drove 50 yards in nine plays, with Dylan Ray catching an 11-yard pass from Turner for the first touchdown.
Ray again was on the receiving end of Springtown’s second touchdown moments later, this for 27 yards. It came one play after Lake Worth punter Ty Stewart was gang-tackled for a 19-yard loss after a low snap.
Teammate Ryan Hester had Springtown’s third touchdown to make it 21-7 with a 3-yard reception in the back corner of the end zone from Turner to end a six-play, 55-yard drive. Hester had three touchdown catches and nine receptions for 136 yards.
Springtown was not afraid to gamble, converting three of four fourth-down tries in the first half alone, but none led to touchdowns.
Lake Worth was held to 10 first downs and 80 yards of offense. The Bulldogs’ only touchdown came after a fumble recovery by Tim Woods at the Springtown 25. Three plays later, quarterback Kelton Versey scored from 18 yards.
