Martin (4-2, 3-0) used two scoring drives of less than a minute to take an early lead. Smith’s 59-yard score put the Warriors up 7-0 with 9:46 left in the first quarter, capping a four-play, 75-yard drive that lasted 46 seconds.
On their second possession, the Warriors needed just 10 seconds to go 49 yards in two plays. Jalum Bouldin gained all the yardage, picking up 47 yards on one carry and scoring from 2 yards out on the second, giving Martin a 14-0 lead with 7:55 left in the first quarter.
The Warriors’ first-quarter onslaught continued when Smith scored on a 2-yard run with 3:24 left in the period. Josh Watson followed with a 2-point conversion for a 22-0 lead.
The Warriors led 30-0 after Smith’s 44-yard score and another 2-point conversion by Watson late in the second quarter.
With Martin averaging 46 points and surrendering an average of 34, compared to Weatherford’s averages of 35 (offense) and 38 (defense), the contest figured to perhaps be high-scoring. That was only the case with the Warriors.
Weatherford was held to minus-9 yards rushing on five carries.
Quarterback Bryce Burks was 11-for-27 for 94 yards, one week after throwing for over 500 and six touchdowns in a 52-45 overtime loss to Paschal. Also, he almost miraculously avoided being sacked all evening by the tenacious Martin pass rush that forced many hurries and an interception by Nick Albus.
The Kangaroos defense had one shining moment when they stopped Martin on fourth-and-goal at the 2 midway through the second quarter. Also, Andrew McNay partially blocked a Martin punt.
The Warriors’ Jared Phipps also blocked a punt deep in Weatherford territory, but it resulted in a missed field goal.
The game was marred by 19 penalties (Martin 11 for 104 yards, Weatherford eight for 50).
