AMARILLO — Childress remains unbeaten on the season as the Bobcats dominated Highland Park in a District 3-3A Division II contest, 64-8, Friday night, Oct. 1 at Hornets Stadium.
Highland Park led this game 8-0 before Childress took complete control, scoring 64 unanswered points.
Bobcat running back Dareon Mathis found the endzone on five separate occasions, ending his evening gashing through the Highland Park defense for 214 yards on 12 carries.
Teammate and receiver Lamont Nickleberry returned a punt 72-yards for a score and added a 55-yard touchdown catch from quarterback Collin Bishop, who was superb through the air, completing 9-of-13 passes for 167 yards with two touchdown passes in a short night of work.
