Saginaw Chisholm Trail’s offense used big plays to fuel a 56-17 District 6-4A win Friday night against Fort Worth Polytechnic at Ranger Stadium.
Big plays in the second half by quarterback Shawn Robinson and Tukayus Powell helped the Rangers (3-6, 3-4) pull away from the Parrots (1-8,1-6).
Robinson threw for 266 yards and three touchdowns and also ran 69 yards and another score. The freshman misfired on his first six passes, but completed his last seven.
The biggest plays came when he found Powell for 23-yard and 65-yard TDs on consecutive plays in the third quarter. The offensive surge that turned an 11-point lead into a 25-point lead that would easily hold up as the defense kept the Parrots off the scoreboard the rest of the way.
Jeru Starks led the Rangers on the ground with 118 yards on seventeen carries. The sophomore ran for a score and also scampered across the field for a 32-yard score in the second quarter after catching a short pass from Robinson.
The offenses traded blows early. After Polytechnic’s Sergio Serna gave his team a 3-0 lead with a 26-yard field goal, Chisholm Trail struck back with three touchdowns in the space of seven minutes, including a 25-yard Derrick Mayweather interception return.
