Fort Worth Castleberry couldn’t hold on once Frisco Independence found its passing game in a 35-8 loss at Toyota Stadium on Thursday night.

The win was the first for Independence, which opened this year.

Castleberry (0-2) took a 2-0 lead when the Knights sailed a snap over the punter and out of the back of the end zone for a safety.

The lead would last just into the second quarter when Independence running back Brandon Williams powered an 11-yard run into the end zone.

Independence (1-1) continued its second quarter attack when Myles Russell scored from the 2, leading to a 14-2 halftime advantage.

Independence gained steam in the third quarter, and posted its third touchdown of the game on a trick play.

Wide receiver Kolbre Smith took a reverse pitch running to his right and passed to a wide open Maxwell Hudson.

The Lions were able to mount one quality drive spanning from the third quarter into the fourth that ended after 15 plays with a 2-yard touchdown run by Pablo Ramos. The try for two points was no good, but the touchdown marked Castleberry’s first offensive points of the season.

Independence finished the night’s scoring with TD passes of 66 and 64 yards.
