DALLAS — There was no bye week rust for the Tyler Legacy Red Raiders on Friday night at Forester Field. The Red Raiders jumped out to a 21-0 lead in the first quarter on the way to a 42-7 win over Dallas Skyline in their District 10-6A opener. After getting stopped on fourth down in Skyline territory on the opening drive, Legacy made quick work of its second drive. Bruce Bruckner ran for 13 yards on the first play, and Jamarion Miller followed with a 57-yard touchdown run with 5:52 left in the first quarter. After Luke Youngblood recovered a fumble for the Red Raiders, Bruckner connected with Miller for a 23-yard touchdown pass to make the score 14-0 with 5:19 to play in the opening quarter. Skyline responded with what appeared to be a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown by Anthony Davis, but a celebration penalty gave Skyline the ball at the Legacy 25-yard line. A sack on fourth down by Christian Hesse gave the Red Raiders the ball at the 35-yard line. Legacy needed just three played to go 65 yards as Eli Howard scored on a reverse, going 52 yard to the end zone to put the score at 21-0 with less than a minute on the clock. Legacy added to its lead with 4:09 left in the second quarter on a 55-yard run by Miller. Skyline answered with a 49-yard touchdown pass from Trey Arroyo to Anthony Davis to cut the score to 28-7 with 2:27 left in the first half.

In volleyball, the goal is to keep your opponent from getting to 25 points … in a set. The Tyler Legacy Lady Raiders attempted to keep Mesquite from reaching 25 points in the entire match. After the Lady Skeeters got their 25th and 26th points of the night, Kayda Kinch immediately put the ball away for the Lady Raiders to complete the sweep (25-6, 25-12, 25-8). “This was a good game for us,” Legacy head volleyball coach Bryan Winegeart said. “What I wanted to see from the girls tonight was consistency and running our offense no matter what was going on on the other side of the net. I definitely think the girls were consistent, and we did what we wanted to do with the ball tonight.” Legacy jumped out to an 8-1 lead in the opening set behind the serving of Catherine Wise. Ionna Jones had four kills in the opening spurt. With the score at 14-5, the Lady Raiders scored eight straight points behind the serving of Kelly Casel.

LUFKIN — Bryson Donnell had more than 200 yards of offense and found the end zone three times as the Tyler Legacy Red Raiders picked up their first win at Abe Martin Stadium since 2003, 35-17 over the Lufkin Panthers. Unmute Duration 2:07 / Current Time 1:29 Advanced Settings Fullscreen Pause Up Next “We definitely came together as a team,” Donnell said. “We dominated offensively and defensively, and we came out with the win.” Donnell carried the ball 19 times for 84 yards and two touchdowns, and he had seven receptions for 129 yards and another score. Donnell’s backfield mate, Jamarion Miller, finished with 14 carries for 142 yards and a touchdown, and he had three catches for 28 yards. “Those guys not only had some big runs where they broke tackles, but they also caught the ball out of the backfield,” Willis said. “Those are things we’ve got to do. Both of those guys have worked incredibly hard on developing that skill set. That’s something going forward we’re going to make teams respect is we’re going to throw the ball to those two dudes.” Legacy had a late addition to the roster just before kickoff as Aaron Olivares took over placekicking duties. Olivares delivered an onside kick on the opening kickoff, and Legacy’s Adariyan Scott was there for the recovery. “Aaron created a turnover on the onside kick, and he really did a good job on most of his kicks as far as pinning them deep, putting the ball through the first line and getting it to pop around,” Willis said. “And of course, he made all of his extra points tonight. I was really pleased with his performance.” Legacy took advantage and Miller used a 22-yard run to get to the 15 and then scored on the next play to give the Red Raiders a quick 7-0 lead. The Red Raiders lost a fumble on their next possession, and Lufkin scored on a 1-yard run by Kedren Young to tie the score at 7 with 1:23 left in the first quarter. The Red Raiders then grabbed the lead for good 30 seconds into the second quarter when Bruce Bruckner connected with Donnell for a 36-yard touchdown pass. Legacy recovered a fumble at the 50-yard line and scored on an 11-yard run by Bruckner to go up 21-7 with 7:43 left in the first half. The Panthers scored on their ensuing possession as Brandon Cano kicked a 36-yard field goal with 3:22 on the clock. Cano also got a 33-yard try in the final seconds of the half, but the ball hit the left upright to give the Red Raiders a 21-20 halftime lead. Legacy got the ball first in the second half, and Donnell used catches of 12 and 23 yards to set up his 2-yard touchdown run too make the score 28-10. Early in the fourth quarter, the Red Raiders recovered another fumble, and Miller ran 44 yards to the 10-yard line one play after having a touchdown run called back by penalty. Donnell finished the drive with a 4-yard touchdown run to make the score 35-10 with 10:32 to play. Jett Stanger force another Lufkin turnover midway through the final quarter as Jett Stanger recovered a fumble. The Red Raiders turned the ball over on downs at their own 7, and Lufkin scored on a 6-yard run by Elijah Moody with 3:38 remaining. “We played with physicality,” senior LaBrendo Flowers said. “That was our main thing. While I was on the field, I preached to get the ball out, get the ball out, get the ball out, and that’s what we did. Although they did score those two times, we had multiple three-and-outs and multiple turnovers. All in all, I felt like we did pretty good.” “I thought we battled all four quarters,” Willis said. “I thought we played physical on both sides of the ball really. Defensively, we created some turnovers with that physical play. Offensively, I thought our offensive line grew up a lot tonight, really good job of dominating the first level and the second level of the defense at times. Our running backs broke tackles, extended plays and made some good things happen. I thought Bruce Bruckner did a great job as far as the option game and the read game. I think that made a big ifference early in the game when he got the pull. He pitched a couple of those things out there in the triple option, and that’s going to make a big difference for us along the way.” Bruckner finished 12 of 18 for 164 yards and a touchdown. Legacy finished with 369 yards of offense. Lufkin was held to 192 yards of offense. Moody ran for 56 yards and a touchdown and was 9 of 18 passing for 71 yards. Legacy (1-0) will be at Christus Trinity Mother Frances Rose Stadium on Friday to take on rival Tyler. ——— Tyler Legacy 35, Lufkin 17 Legacy 7 14 7 7 — 35 Lufkin 7 3 0 7 — 17 First Quarter TL — Jamarion Miller 15 run (Aaron Olivares kick), 10:14 LUF — Kedren Young 1 run (Brandon Cano kick), 1:23 Second Quarter TL — Bryson Donnell 36 pass from Bruce Bruckner (Olivares kick), 11:30 TL — Bruckner 11 run (Olivares kick), 7:43 LUF — Brandon Cano 36 FG, 3:22 Third Quarter TL — Donnell 2 run (Olivares kick), 8:30 Fourth Quarter TL — Donnell 4 run (Olivares kick), 10:32 LUF — Elijah Moody 5 run (Cano kick), 3:30 TL LUF First Downs 19 11 Rushes-Yards 39-220 36-121 Passing Yards 164 71 Comp.-Att-Int. 12-18-0 9-18-0 Punts-Ave. 2-43 2-32.5 Fumbles-Lost 3-2 3-2 Penalties-Yards 12-83 4-35 Individual Statistics RUSHING — Legacy, Jamarion Miller 14-142; Bryson Donnell 19-84; Bruce Buckner 5-minus 1; Luke Wolf 1-minus 5.
