Dawson runs over Alvin 45-7

PEARLAND — Last week, Dawson was in an offensive track meet with Magnolia West. The Eagles piled up over 800 total yards and won 61-50.

It was a defensive nightmare for Dawson defensive coordinator Mike Allison even though the Eagles pulled out the win.

This week, there was another offensive fireworks show, but this time, it was Dawson who exploded for 712 total yards while Allison's defense limited the Alvin Yellowjackets (1-2) to only 188 total yards and one score. And that score came against special teams as Alvin's Jerry Dickins ran back the second half kickoff 69-yards for the touchdown making the score 24-7.

Dawson 92-1) scored on their first possession of the game when Isaiah Gullory snagged a 34-yard scoring strike from QB Vance Galloway making the score 7-0 with 10:18 left in the first quarter. Tyler Day booted the extra point.

It took less than three minutes for the Eagles to strike again as Galloway hit Drake Rainer for a 14-yard scoring toss for a 14-0 lead.

Dawson added a 24-yard field goal and a Galloway to Gullory  touchdown pass covering 51-yards in the second quarter for a 24-0 halftime lead.

It was all Dawson in the second half as the Eagles defense didn't give in to allow the Jackets an opportunity to get back in the game.

The Eagles scored in the third quarter when Gullory caught his third pass of the game when Galloway found him on a 19-yard streak route making the score 31-7.

The next score came from senior running back Brett Winnegan who has been a marked man by opposing teams. Winnegan rushed for over 2,300 yards last season and opposing coaches have openly admitted the have designed their defenses to stop the speedster. Those teams may have won the battle against Winnegan, but they have lost the war.

Alvin targeted Winnegan, but he still had eight carries for 82 yards and a break-away 54-yard scoring jaunt making the score 38-7. Winnegan led the Eagles with eight carries for 83 yards.

Dawson closed out the scoring with 10:03 left in the fourth quarter when Antoine Cannady scored on a 15-yard run.

Alvin's Carlos Garcia was a shining star as he carried the ball 21 times for 89 yards.

Dawson's Galloway once again had a great outing as hit 18-of-22 passing for 345 yards and four TDs. He also added 57 yards on six totes giving him 402 total yards.

Gullory was Galloway's favorite target with six catches for 126 yards and three TDs. Galloway hit eight other receivers in a balanced passing attack.

Dawson will travel to Pasadena Veterans Stadium to face the Sam Rayburn Texans on Saturday, September 20 at 6:00 p.m.
