Nine different players score TDs for Mansfield Timberview in 71-point effort

Nine different Mansfield Timberview players scored a touchdown Thursday night as the Wolves ripped Dallas Sunset 71-9 in a District 6-5A Division I game at Newsom Stadium.

Montaye Dawon led the way with 153 rushing yards and a 40-yard score in the first quarter. Dawson was one of five Timberview (4-3, 3-1) players – including Jordan Davis, Jaxson Rollins, Najee Ellies and Deuce Jones – to score a rushing touchdown.

Darius Williams and Teslim Abubakar scored receiving touchdowns – on passes of 4 and 43 yards, respectively, from Davis.

And the Wolves scored two defensive touchdowns for good measure, getting a 25-yard interception return by safety Tre Jones and a fumble recovery in the end zone by linebacker Sterling Warren.

Jones notched the game’s lone special teams touchdown. Following a safety in the first minute of the third quarter, he returned the free kick 59 yards for a touchdown and a 51-9 lead.

Timberview ran just 30 plays but rolled up 402 yards of offense.

Sunset (1-6, 0-3) scored its lone touchdown on a 59-yard run by Jay Hernandez. The Bison also scored on a safety when a Timberview snap went out of the back of the end zone.

Game was over when: Tre Jones picked off a Sunset pass and raced 25 yards for a score, giving the Wolves 35 first-quarter points.

Play of the game: Timberview’s first touchdown was its most impressive. Abubakar got behind the defense and Davis threw a deep ball on the money for a 43-yard touchdown.

Offensive player of the game: Dawson’s 153 rushing yards – all in the first half – were the biggest reason for Timberivew’s 42-9 halftime lead. His third rush went for a 40-yard touchdown. He also set up another score on a 40-yard run in the second quarter. That second long run would’ve been a 49-yard touchdown, but a Timberview player was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct at the Sunset 9.

Defensive player of the game: Timberview sophomore defensive end Terrell Tilmon forced Sunset quarterback Ty Williams out of bounds at the 1-yard on fourth-and-goal in the second quarter, preventing a Bison touchdown.

Unsung hero of the game: Deuce Jones touched the ball just twice, but netted two touchdowns, on a 25-yard rush and a 59-yard free-kick return.

What’s next? Sunset hosts Highland Park at Sprague Field in Dallas at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 26. Timberview travels to Lancaster at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 26.
