The Carrollton Turner Lions (2-0) scored on nine of their first 11 possessions, steamrolling the Fort Worth Polytechnic Parrots 61-18 in a non-district game Thursday night at Standridge Stadium.

Polytechnic (0-2) did manage some late success, scoring twice in the fourth quarter. Unfortunately for the Parrots, that came after finding itself in a 61-6 hole.

Poly’s Anthony Redic first escaped on a 71-yard scoring run to cut the margin. Then he scooped up a Lions fumble at the Turner 35 and raced untouched to add the final six points to the total.

But the Parrots couldn’t overcome a Turner offense that gained 590 yards, averaging almost nine yards a play.

The Lions (1-1) had three one-play scoring drives, including a 46-yard pass from sophomore quarterback Justin Eichorn to Ken Francis on Turner’s opening play from scrimmage.

Polytechnic’s Javier Moreno caught a 4-yard scoring pass from Darius Rogers to pull to within 13-6.

The Lions, however, answered with three more scoring plays before halftime, including a drive that had two touchdowns negated by penalties.

Turner, which had 112 yards of penalties on the night, then scored four more touchdowns in a 27-point third quarter before the Parrots finally made a stop on defense.

Redic paced Poly’s offense with 84 rushing yards.
