Third-Ranked Gilmer Continues To Roll With 49-7 Defeat Of Bullard
BULLARD -- Third-ranked Gilmer's district shutout streak was snapped at 11 quarters, but that was about all that was left to be desired for the Buckeyes on Friday night.
McLane Carter passed for two touchdowns, Kris Boyd rushed for three scores and Blake Lynch continued his penchant for big-plays in Gilmer's 49-7 win over Bullard in District 5-4A Division II action at Panther Stadium.
Gilmer (8-0, 3-0), which had blanked its first two league opponents, lost the shutout late in the fourth quarter, but the game had been long decided.
Carter completed 14 of 18 passes for 232 yards with scoring tosses to Nick Smith, who finished with four receptions for 116 yards, and Demarco Boyd. Meanwhile, Kris Boyd finished with 98 yards rushing on 10 attempts.
Lynch, a senior Baylor commit, ran for a team-best 125 yards and a touchdown on just four carries to improve upon what has been an incredibly explosive campaign for the Troup transfer.
For the season, Lynch has posted 1,134 total yards of offense and accounted for 19 touchdowns. The versatile athlete, who also starts at free safety, has rushed for 549 yards and 10 touchdowns on just 33 attempts (16.6 yards per carry), caught 21 passes for 411 yards and seven scores, and completed 7 of 10 passes for 174 yards and two TDs.
Gilmer and Bullard (5-3, 1-2) are both in action next Friday night. Gilmer hosts Nevada Community for just its second home game of the year, while Bullard travels to Melissa.
