HENDERSON — Kilgore trailed Henderson 7-0 at the end of the first quarter Friday night.

The Lions’ unlikely lead didn’t last long.

Kilgore outscored Henderson 21-3 the rest of the half, and 42-0 in the second half for a lopsided 63-10 win. It was one of the biggest margins of victory in the 79 meetings between the Highway 259 rivals, a series Kilgore has dominated since 1995 (the Lions have won only four times since then).

The Bulldogs (8-0, 5-0 in District 16-3A) got 384 rushing yards in the game, including 136 from Davieonra “JuJu” Brown and 114 from season-leading rusher Kevrin Justice. Jacobie Vidal had 61 and quarterback Benny Colbert had 48. Justice, Brown and Vidal each had two touchdowns.

Tight end Jarod Wood caught three passes from Colbert for 95 yards and a score, and Justice had a catch for 30 yards.

Defensively, Kilgore allowed Henderson quarterback Zane Boles to complete 19 of 36 passes for 140 yards, but almost all of that came in the first half. Kilgore’s defense held the Lions to just one first down after halftime and only 21 rushing yards.

Both Aaron Foy and Justice had an interception.

For Henderson, Tre’ Hollins had the touchdown catch in the first quarter. Kicker Edgar Sanchez had a 33-yard field goal in the second quarter.

Henderson (3-6, 2-3) visits Gladewater next Friday, while Kilgore hosts No. 1 Gilmer (9-0, 5-0) in a matchup that will decide the “District of Doom” championship.
