Despite missing their starting quarterback, Brian Holley and their do everything back/receiver/returner, Antonio Pacheco, the Tyrone Bobcats topped the Waynoka Railroaders on the road, 46-14 to stay undefeated.

The Bobcats got off to a slow start and trailed 14-6 with 5:27 left in the first quarter. But the Tyrone defense tightened up, and did not surrender another point the rest of the way.

“We faced a lot of adversity early,” Tyrone Head Coach Josh Bell said. “After that, we played absolutely solid.”

Cornerback Chance Duty stepped in as Holley’s replacement at quarterback, running for 109 yards and two touchdowns, and throwing for another. Matthew Clancy rushed 13 times for 82 yards and a TD, and Alex Torres rushed 9 times for 79 yards and a TD. Jonathan Corrales led all Bobcat rushers with 135 yards and two TDs on just 15 carries. Corrales also hauled in a 44-yard TD pass.

Tyrone quickly tied the game back up at 14 when Alex Torres scored on a 48-yard run just a minute and a half later. Torres converted the two-point conversion to knot the score at 14. Then, with 1:32 still to play in the first quarter, Duty connected with Corrales for a 44-yard touchdown pass, giving the Bobcats a 20-14 lead at the end of the first quarter.

Tyrone poured it on in the second with three more touchdowns. First, Corrales scored on a 59-yard run, then caught a pass from Duty for the conversion. Matthew Clancy was next with a five-yard TD run. Corrales scored his third TD of the game on a 33-yard run to give the Bobcats a 38-14 lead at the half.

Duty added a 37-yard TD run in the fourth quarter to his 50-yarder in the first quarter, and Tyrone came away with a 32-point win.

The Bobcats won the turnover battle, forcing three interceptions and two fumbles without giving up a turnover.
