Coltin Clack + Texas High Take Out Wylie East, 35-19
TEXARKANA—Coltin Clack accounted for four touchdowns to help Texas High snap a five-game losing skid and celebrate Homecoming with a 35-19 win over Wylie East Friday at Tiger Stadium.
Clack threw for one TD and ran for three other short scores—two in the third quarter—and the Tigers rolled up 437 yards of total offense against the Raiders, who end their season on a six-game losing skid and are open next week.
Clack had scoring runs of 1, 1 and 2 yards, and connected on 17 of 23 passes for 233 yards. Myles Washington hauled in five balls for 89 yards and a 55-yard scoring strike.
The Tigers defense, which gave up 260 yards in the first half, allowed a field goal and meaningless TD late, surrendering only 123 yards of total offense in the second half.
Collius Zachery provided a spark late in the Texas High ground attack and raced 14 yards to pay dirt on a 60-yard drive, which he picked up all but three yards of. He finished with 59 yards on five carries, Tracy Cooper had 60 yards on three rushes, and Chris Sutton added 42 yards on 11 carries.
Sutton also set up the first THS touchdown with his 45-yard return of the game’s opening kickoff. Three plays later, Clack had his first 1-yard plunge.
East freshman running back Tyler Jackson had 14 rushes for 144 yards before leaving with a hand injury.
Raider QB Zack Haaland added 79 yards on 16 carries and was 5-of-21 for 116 yards and an interception.
Clack’s two third-quarter TDs and Zachery’s fourth-quarter score were 21 consecutive points after Wylie East pulled within 14-13 just 3:25 into the second half.
Christian Johnson had a Raider TD with 1:12 left in the game after Mason Swanson hauled in a 36-yard pass from Haaland following a short THS punt.
Haaland also had a 1-yard score, and Nick Figueroa kicked a pair of field goals.
Texas High (3-6, 1-4) closes out the regular season at West Mesquite next week.
