Great Balls of Fire: Otey and Alcorn lead 'Horns to 66-8 first half rout of Cyril
After mercy-ruling Life Christian 47-0 in their season-opener, the Cyril Pirates were riding high when they came to Alex on Sept. 12. The boys in blue played hard but were overwhelmed by the mighty Longhorns from the first snap. Senior Jacob Otey was a constant threat on both sides of the ball, destroying the Cyril offense in his defensive role and then staying on the field to catch passes for touchdowns. Junior QB Dalton Alcorn lead the offense well and repeatedly bulldozed through the Cyril defensive line for touchdowns of his own. The added efforts of Juniors Kyler Thornburg, Dalton Hefner and Koda Jackson, Senior Christian Slaughter, Sophomore Brant Hines and many others helped the 'Horns reach pay dirt on almost every possession, ratcheting the score up to 44-0 at the end of the FIRST QUARTER!
Cyril's only touchdown came on a Longhorn fumble in the second quarter but the Pirates were otherwise pinned down in their own territory. Coach Brand put this match to bed early, marking his first mercy-rule victory of the season.
