EL DORADO — The McPherson High School Bullpups scored eight touchdowns as they put away El Dorado High School 56-8 on Friday, improving to 3-0 of the year.
The Wildcats were without their starting quarterback Cody Wittenberg and running back Jackson Schell due to injuries. The Bullpups defense took advantage by not giving the Wildcats an inch of scoring position, led by Khalil Lisbon, who recorded three tackles-for-loss.
While on offense, Jace Kinnamon was off to a hot start in the first quarter after rushing two touchdowns. One was a simple one-yarder in the goal line. After McPherson recovered a fumble, the Bullpups were in good field position, and Kinnamon would break six tackles en route to a 37-yard touchdown.
In the second quarter, it was Chandler Wiard's turn to put points on the board. He scored two more touchdowns offensively after catching a 26-yard pass from Kyler Hoppes, and defensively at free safety, making an interception that led to a 38-yard TD. The Wildcats committed two turnovers, leading to the Bullpups scoring on the next drive. With 52 seconds left Hoppes found Gabe Hoover for the Bullpups' fifth touchdown to end the first half. McPherson put up 246 total yards while El Dorado only has 36 yards at halftime.
Kinnamon scored two more rushing touchdowns in the second half to put away the Wildcats early. As McPherson lead 49-0, the running clock began five minutes left in the third.
El Dorado was able to avoid a shutout after Quiston Wade makes a big run against the Bullpups second-team team. Before reaching the two-minute mark, freshman running back Sky Schriner out runs El Dorado for 40 yards. Back up quarterback Aiden Hoover would then scramble his way for the Bullpups eight touchdown to end the game.
The Bullpups return home next Friday to host Abilene.
