FRISCO - After a turnover on downs to start the game, Denton Guyer scored on seven of its next eight possessions, led by quarterback Eli Stowers' 4 touchdown passes, en route to a 48-7 win in the 6A DII Region I finals.
Denton Guyer completely shut down the Tascosa rushing attack, which came in averaging more than 400 yards with its flexbone formation. Outside of a few busted plays or missed tackles, Tascosa wasn't able to mount much offensively. Tascosa' lone score came on a "trick" play, which was just a play-action pass in which the Guyer defense was completely fooled.
