Cards roll, Beat Howe 56-14

According to the winningest coach in Pottsboro history balance is crucial to success.  The Cardinals once again showed the ability to move the ball on the ground and through the air and their balance was more than enough to humble the Bulldogs from Howe 56-14.  With the win Matt Poe picked up win number 74 passing Ronnie Ray for the most wins in school history now 74-25 in 8+ years at the helm.  Coach Poe attributes his success to the continuity of his staff with 6 assistants being at Pottsboro since he took over back in 2006.  In the game the Cardinals scored on their first 2 possessions, moving like lightning on a 62 yard drive in 5 plays to open the game and scoring on Zane Pritchett’s 5 yards run.  The Cards followed that with a 5 play 45 yard drive, Thaddeus Flinn doing the honors from 5 yards out and it was 14-0 before the half-way point of the first quarter.  Pottsboro managed to add 6 more td’s to improve to 4-1 in their last non-district encounter of 2014.  Thaddeus Flinn was the Pottsboro Sun Star of the Game with 200 yards on only 20 carries and 2 touchdowns.  Zane Pritchett spread the ball around in the passing game hitting 5 different receivers and finishing 13-20 for 216 yards and a touchdown.  The Cardinals defense swarmed the Slot-T offense employed by Howe holding standout senior running back Anthony Hawthorne to only 56 yards on 20 carries.  Pottsboro gets a week off to rest and recuperate and then heads into the morass of what should be an extremely difficult district 3A-5 schedule.  Pottsboro opens up the 2nd season at Farmersville Oct 10th, should be fun.
