NEW CHAPEL HILL -- It wasn't pretty, but Kilgore served notice Saturday afternoon that they are, well, the top dogs of District 9-4A Division I.
Kilgore got a 164-yard, two-touchdown performance from Ja'Quorius Smith in addition to 145 yards on the ground from quarterback Patrick Jackson and another solid defensive performance to deal Chapel Hill a 27-7 loss Saturday.
The victory allowed Kilgore to hold onto first place outright within the league.

LUFKIN -- After exchanging punches in the early going, the Chapel Hill Bulldogs simply had no answer for an explosive Port Neches-Groves squad as the Indians scored the last 27 points of the game on their way to a dominating 41-10 win at Lufkin's John Outlaw Memorial Field at Abe Martin Stadium on Friday night.
TYLER -- For now, Whitehouse is operating with a one-two punch at the quarterback position. For now.
Collin Bullard came off the bench for his first series of the night late in the first quarter and didn't leave until the game was well in hand. The senior helped the Wildcats rally from seven points down at the half to a 51-21 victory Thursday against Chapel Hill at Trinity Mother Frances Rose Stadium.
TYLER -- Whitehouse's offense failed to find its footing in last week's season opener, and Thursday night's game wasn't looking much better through one half of play.
