Hyatt now tied with Gene Bradley for second in wins by a BHS head coach.
Mansfield was looking to make a name for itself Friday night. Instead, it was Booneville head coach Scott Hyatt whose name is now alongside Gene Bradley’s in terms of wins by a Bearcat coach.
With Carson Ray running for 151 yards and four touchdowns, Michael Hesson picking up 100 yards and a touchdown on five carries and Even Schlinker throwing for 87 yards and two touchdowns, the Bearats pummeled Mansfield 55-6 Friday night at Bearcat Stadium.
The win is the 107th for Hyatt as the head coach, matching the late Bradley in the house Bradley built, for second most among Bearcat coaches. It also moved the Bearcats to 7-0 on the season and 4-0 in Conference 3A-1 play.
Mansfield, who took a 6-0 lead less than two minutes into the game on a 2-yard Ethan Stovall to Layton Howard pass, falls to 6-1 and 3-1.
Stovall was 12-of-25 for 67 yards. He was also intercepted by Ian Suttles and Gabe Fennell and was sacked four times, once by Cam Brasher and Andrew Robertson, once by Marcus Nichols, and twice, on successive plays, by Cort Mizell.
With the sacks Stovall had minus 38 yards rushing resulting in the Tigers being held to 8 yards on the ground and 75 total yards on the night.
Schlinker matched Stovall’s first quarter touchdown pass with one of 10 yards to Brasher to make it 7-6. The junior capped a 34-point scoring spree in a span of 8:43 with a 51-yard pass to Ethan Dobbs.
Dobbs finished with three catches for 77 yards in the game.
Ray’s touchdown runs covered 1, 25, 5 and 65 yards and Hesson’s touchdown carry was of 14 yards.
Ethan Wooldridge capped the scoring for the Bearcats with a third quarter 12-yard run.
