The Summit football team opened the season with a bang on Thursday night by crushing Wichita Falls by a score of 48-14, and the Jaguars had some big time performances along the way.
Summit will host Birdville in its next game at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, and the Jaguars should be in for a good challenge.
The Hawks lost 35-10 to Prosper in their opening game of the season, but running back Cameron Hollie rushed for 115 yards on 16 carries and scored a touchdown.
The Birdville defense also came up with two fumble recoveries in the game against Prosper, so Summit looks to have its work cut out.
Never miss a local story.
That was not the case on Friday, however, as the Jaguars jumped on Wichita Falls early in the second quarter and never really looked back.
After a scoreless first quarter, Curtis Hollis got things started for the Jags, catching a 20-yard pass from quarterback Braden Nolen to make it 7-0 Summit.
Fred Adams then scored on a three-yard run to give the Jaguars a 14-point lead, and Nolen connected with Lane Schwab to make it 21-0 going into halftime.
Adams rushed for his second touchdown of the night on a three-yard scamper, and Nolen and Hollis hooked up for the second touchdown pass, this time of 10 yards to finish out the third quarter.
Nolen would finish the night with 164 yards passing and three touchdowns.
Adams rushed for 132 yards and two touchdowns in the game on 14 carries.
Derek Johnson got in on the action in the fourth quarter for the Jaguars, scoring on a 13-7 yard run to extend Summit’s lead to 41-0.
Wichita Falls finally broke through later in the quarter for their first touchdown of the night, but Summit came right back an answered with a 59-yard pass from Grant Johnson to Carlos Cifuentes, who had two receptions for 78 yards in the game.
The Summit defense recovered two fumbles in the game and held the Wichita Falls offense to 87 yards passing and 96 yards on the ground.
Schwab caught seven passes for 79 yards.
