Frenship scores early in victory over Canyon Randall
AMARILLO—Frenship’s loss to Abilene Wylie two weeks ago was motivation as they cruised to a 37-7 victory over Canyon Randall Friday night at Kimbrough Stadium in Canyon.
“We were out-manned, out-played, and out-hustled last week,” said Philip James, Frenship senior. “It felt good to come out here and get a win. It was good to get the turnovers we did and play as hard as we did.”
James had two interceptions to lead the Tiger defense.
Frenship wasted no time on its first possession going down the field in a 3-play, 72-yard drive that ended when Brandon Hanslik passed to Gabe Guerrero for a 9-yard score.
“We executed very well the first drive and we felt like we could execute on some things they were giving us,” said Brad Davis, Frenship head coach.
Philip James snagged the first of his two interceptions on Randall’s first play.
The Tigers were unable to capitalize on the Randall turnover and they punted the ball, downing it inside the Randall 10-yard line.
Randall was backed up to its 2 yard line with a series of runs for loss and a 5-yard false start penalty.
While punting out of their own end zone, the Raiders’ deep snapper sailed the ball over the punter for a safety giving Frenship a 9-0 lead.
Davis said Randall made defensive adjustments.
“We did not get down the field so quick that next drive. We felt like we could throw the ball a little better because they were playing with no safeties most the game,” he said.
Hanslik connected with Guerrero for a 25-yard pass down the center of the field for a second touchdown.
Frenship also scored on a 39-yard run by Bobby Huey, set up by a a 29-yard pass from Hanslik to Dallas Croyle.
Hanslik finished the game going 10-for-23 with 138 yards passing.
The two teams exchanged punts until the Tigers scored with 1:32 left in the half off a 16-yard run from Huey.
Huey did not play the second half and finished the game with 97 rushing yards.
Randall went into its hurry-up offense with 1:25 after Bryce Ballard rushed for 24 yards on its first play. Ballard followed the run with a 14-yard run. Jordan Smith passed to Leighton Tapia for 16 yards before Randall called time out with 7 seconds remaining in the first half.
Ballard rushed for a 29-yard touchdown with time expiring in the first half.
James intercepted a Randall pass at the Tiger 25-yard line on the opening drive of the third quarter.
Frenship converted the turnover into points with a 6-minute drive that ended with a 15-yard run from Roddy Rivas.
Hanslik rushed for a 2-yard touchdown at the end of the quarter and the Tigers held on to a 37-7 victory.
