Highland Park Dominates Mount Pleasant in Bi-District Round
FRISCO -- Mount Pleasant's first playoff game in four years took place in one of the new jewels in Texas, the Dallas Cowboys' multi-million dollar indoor training facility -- the Ford Center at The Star.
Unfortunately for Tigers fans, the game most likely won't be as memorable.
Highland Park scored at will and suffocated the Mount Pleasant offense, rolling to an easy 70-2 win in their Class 5A Division I, Region II bi-district contest Saturday afternoon.
Mount Pleasant (3-8) was limited to just two first downs and 65 yards of total offense. Its only points were courtesy of Calvin Harris' first-quarter sack of Highland Park quarterback John Stephen Jones in the end zone, resulting in a safety.
Jones, the grandson of Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones and the son of team president Stephen Jones, passed for four touchdowns to lead the Highland Park attack.
Scots (9-2) running back Jack Kozmetsky picked up 144 total yards and scored three times. He led Highland Park with 103 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries, and made two scoring receptions of 14 and 30 yards.
Highland Park will face Frisco Independence in the area round of the playoffs.
