JV Zebras stomp East Central

CLAREMORE — Claremore sophomore Kaleb Hinds threw two touchdown passes and had a 45-yard interception return for a touchdown as the JV Zebras stomped East Central, 37-6 Monday night at Lantow Field.

With the win, the JV Zebras improved to 4-0 on the season.

Claremore came out a little angry after the varsity dropped a 20-19 heartbreaker to East Central last Friday night in Tulsa.

The frustration was quickly released early in the first quarter when Hinds delivered a perfect 37-yard strike to wide receiver Randy Williams for the touchdown that put the JV Zebras ahead of East Central, 7-0.

The lead grew to 14-0 on a solid offensive drive that was led by junior quarterback Brinley Brown and the hard-nosed running of sophomore tailback Derrick Reliford.

Brown fired consecutive passes to Josh Peavy and Cade Edwards to put the Zebras in East Central territory.

From the 35-yard line, Brown scampered 15 yards behind the lead block of fullback Chris Dotson to give the Zebras a first down inside the East Central 20-yard line.

Dotson rumbled to the 5-yard line on the ensuing play and Brown called his own number at the goal line for the 2-yard touchdown run.

Jared Vincent converted his second extra point and Claremore led 14-0.

The Zebras took advantage of a defensive turnover as Hinds picked off Quantel Givens pass and raced 45 yards for the touchdown that increased Claremore’s lead to 21-0 at the end of the first quarter.

East Central, meanwhile, tallied its only touchdown late in the second quarter on a bootleg run around the left side by Givens. The 2-point conversion pass was broken up by Nathan Garwick and East Central trailed Claremore, 21-6.

Coming out in the third quarter, Reliford and Dotson keyed Claremore’s offensive success.

Dotson scored on a 10-yard run and added the 2-point conversion to give the Zebras the 29-6 lead.

The touchdown drive was keyed by Hinds’ first-down pass to Edwards for 12 yards.

Then, with under two minutes remaining in the third quarter, Hinds eluded several East Central defenders and connected with Edwards for a 47-yard touchdown pass. Reliford punched in the 2-point conversion and Claremore secured the 37-6 victory.

The Claremore JV remains perfect with wins over Oologah, Miami, Collinsville and East Central.

  • MLB: Rangers struggle in 9-3 loss to A's

    A rough month didn't get any better for Texas on Sunday night, even though the game-time temperature of 100 degrees would have seemed to be in the Rangers' favor against Oakland.

  • MLB: First-place Dodgers complete sweep of Giants

    Manager Don Mattingly hardly considers a late-July sweep in San Francisco a turning point to put his Dodgers in the driver's seat atop the NL West.

    Yet coming off consecutive series losses at St. Louis and Pittsburgh, Los Angeles needed some sort of spark as August approaches. The Dodgers found it in the ballpark of their biggest rival, and left the Bay Area in first place following an emphatic three-game swing.

    Carl Crawford hit an RBI triple to back Hyun-Jin Ryu's third straight victory, and division-leading Los Angeles beat the Giants 4-3 Sunday night to establish some momentum behind their pitching and offense.
