Gladewater’s Rushing Attack Too Much for Lindale in 38-10 Bears Victory
LINDALE – The Gladewater Bears traveled to Eagle Stadium on Friday night and unfortunately for Lindale, they brought a devastating running attack which accounted for four of the Bears’ touchdowns in a 38-10 rout of the Eagles.
With the win, Gladewater improved to 4-1 on the season while Lindale slipped to 1-4.
The Bears’ Isaiah Davis bulled his way for three scores and quarterback Cameron Callaway Jr. ran for one and passed for another as Gladewater built a 17-7 lead at the half en route to the win.
Lindale had specific trouble with the Gladewater option, as Callaway would make his way down the line of scrimmage and either keep it or toss it back to Davis for big gainers.
Davis scored on runs of 21, 33 and 66 yards, while Callaway ran in from 14 yards and tossed a 42-yard score to Austin Hawley.
After falling behind 3-0 on Gladewater’s first drive of the game, the Eagles used their second possession to travel 51 yards in seven plays, which was capped by a nifty 25-yard scoring run from quarterback Montana Meador. He ran to his left, cut up field and changed directions once again to elude the Bears’ defense.
That was the only lead the Eagles would enjoy on the night.
Two Lindale possessions later, the Bears recovered a fumbled snap on the Lindale 42, and on third down, Davis raced in from 21 yards to give Gladewater a 10-7 advantage with 3:15 left in the half.
On their next try, the Bears were helped by a pass interference call on the Eagles and on first down from the Lindale 42, Callaway hit Hawley with the scoring pass.
Davis upped the Gladewater advantage to 24-7 on its next possession, running in from 14 yards out.
In the second half, a bad punt snap gave Lindale the ball on the Gladewater 14 and three plays later, Mitchell Winters booted a 26-yard field goal.
Davis’ final two tallies came late in the fourth quarter as he scored on a fourth and 4 from 33 yards out and with 44 seconds left, he broke through the Eagle line and scored from 66 yards out.
