Shadow Creek blanks Texas City 34-0


MANVEL SHADOW CREEK — No. 1 area-ranked Shadow Creek remained perfect on the season at 5-0 with a 34-0 Homecoming win over the Texas City Stingarees at Freedom Field. The Sharks improved their District 10-5A-I mark to 2-0. Texas City remains winless on the season at 0-5.

The Sharks were a little slow getting untracked in the first half as they were held to a single touchdown when Kelvon Brown scored on a 1-yard plunge at the 8:07 mark of the second quarter for a 7-0 lead at halftime. Neither team could mount an offensive charge in the opening period. QB Kyron Drones had some key runs in the scoring drive.

Shadow Creek did threaten in the first half, but Drones was intercepted in the Texas City end zone that kept the Stings in the game.

The second half was all Shadow Creek as they scored 27 unanswered points to get the 34-0 win.

A fumble cost the Sharks a score on their first possession of the third quarter when they drove to the Texas City goal line. A fumble was recovered by Texas City for a touch back to deny the Sharks a touchdown.

However, Texas City's offense couldn't sustain a drive forcing them to give the ball back to Shadow Creek.

The Sharks marched down the field to cross the goal line, but they fumbled again. This time, Shadow Creek's Greg Brown fell on the ball for the touchdown to give the Sharks a 14-0 lead with 3:48 left in the third.

Shadow Creek got the ball back on an interception by Kullen Murrell and the Sharks turned it into another score as Jayveon Bell scooted across the goal line on a 6-yard run for a 20-0 lead entering the fourth quarter.

The Sharks would score on their first possession of the final period as Drones tosses a 2-yard pass to Jahkin Middleton for the touchdown to push the score to 27-0.

After Shadow Creek got another interception by Jaylen Lane, Drones wasted little time as he found Randy Masters open on a 64-yard scoring strike to post the 34-0 final score.

Drones was 15-for-21 passing for 215 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception while also rushing for 24 yards on eight carries.

Sophomore running back Kelvon Brown had 15 carries for 130 yards and one score while Bell added 84 yards on eight totes and one TD.

Masters had two catches for 96 yards and one TD.

The Sharks will travel to Ball High in Galveston on Friday, October 11 at 7:00 p.m.
