Published 9:51pm Friday, October 11, 2013

The Benjamin Russell Wildcats controlled the game from start to finish in Thursday’s 48-6 region win over the Rehobeth Rebels.

Wildcats head coach Danny Horn said his team overcame a slow start and will now set its sights on next week’s region game at Carroll-Ozark.

“I thought we started off a little sluggish, but we picked it up a little bit as the game went on. Every region secures a higher seed, and that’s what we’re going for,” Horn said. “We’ve got a long road trip ahead. Carroll’s got a good football team. I think we’ll be ready to play.”

After the slow start, quarterback Bryant Horn got the Wildcats (6-1, 5-0) going with a 14-yard touchdown pass to Bookie Ford, as the Collin Sharpe extra point made it 7-0 with 3:33 left in the first.

The Wildcats carried over the momentum to their very next drive, as Bryant Horn tossed his second touchdown of the half, this time finding Quinn Johnson on the sideline for a 31-yard score that made it 14-0 with 49 seconds left in the opening quarter.

Bryant Horn took one in himself on a 1-yard sneak that extended the lead to 21-0 before LaBrenikin Johnson added a 26-yard touchdown run that made it 28-0 Wildcats midway through the second quarter.

The Wildcats went into the break leading 41-0, as Bryant Horn tossed two more touchdowns, one for 42 yards to Quinn Johnson and another for 51 yards to Ford.

The Wildcats’ final score came on a 4-yard touchdown run by Ellis Holloway on the first drive of the third quarter.

Rehobeth’s lone score came in the fourth on a 67-yard run by Ladarrius Fields.

Bryant Horn finished the night 10 for 14 passing for 217 yards and four touchdowns, adding 24 yards on six carries for another score.

LaBrenikin Johnson had 82 yards on 11 rushes and one score, while Holloway had 52 yards on nine carries and one touchdown.

Ford had 79 yards on three catches for two scores, while Quinn Johnson had 63 yards on two catches, both of which were touchdowns.

The Wildcats had 419 yards of total offense and forced two turnovers, while holding Rehobeth to 147 yards of total offense.
