Ennis Ford Perfect Drive

Ennis had too many offensive misfires to withstand a disciplined Kaufman (2-0) team that was clicking on all cylinders from start to finish in what became a 37-7 home defeat for Team Maroon. The host Lions, now 0-2, dropped their opening District 8-5A game to a team that looked eager in their encore after going 12-2 last year. Kaufman led 21-7 at halftime and not only did they never punt, they played error-free. “It never feels good to get beat like that,” said Sam Harrell, the Ennis head coach. “You have to find a few good things that you did right and build on it.” His team won’t have to look far, as the team was efficient in moving the ball. They rushed for 170 and passed for 134 yards though eight penalties and three fumbles caused the attack to sputter and breakdown once in scoring position. The third quarter proved fruitless in producing points, but not for nearly making a game of it. The defense finally came through with a stop when Marlon Jones sacked QB Trey Collier on third and two, one play before Payton Chapman blocked a 27-yard field goal attempt by Yahel Sandoval kick.
