TATUM -- Darnell McKnight and Marcello Jackson each recorded three touchdowns to help Gladewater open District 6-4A Division II with a 51-12 rout of Tatum on Friday night.
Jackson was responsible for Gladewater's first two touchdowns, and both came within the first two minutes of the game. McKnight added an 85-yard touchdown run later in the quarter, his first of three.
Tatum cut Gladewater's lead to 23-6 on a 60-yard touchdown run by Tavian Ray, but Jackson responded, this time from 40 yards out.
McKnight added touchdown runs of 65 and 6 yards in the fourth quarter.
