The seventh grade Roughnecks defeated Tatum, beating them 46-0, last Thursday in Tatum.

Scoring leaders included Will Young, De Williams, Shawn Stevens, and Kash Y’barbo.

Young lead the way for the ‘Necks with 75 yards rushing, one touchdown pass, two, two point conversions and a 60 yard kickoff return. Williams gained 130 yards rushing in the win.

Shawn Stevens caught one pass for a touchdown and added a two point conversion and Kash Y’barbo added a two point conversion.

“We played well in all three phases of the game for the most part and it was good to start district with a win,” Coach Ron Boyett said. “However, we know we will face much more competitive teams in the weeks ahead so we must continue to improve on both sides of the ball.”

 The ‘Necks will host Winnsboro this evening at 4:30 p.m.
