If you know Haynesville Golden Tornado football, you know that it is a ground-and-pound offense.  If you look at the Haynesville stats, you may see 1 or 2 passes a game.  Well, on Friday a strange object appeared in the air over Red Franklin Stadium.  After further review, it was a football…

The Haynesville Tornado collected a key district win over the Glenbrook.  The win keeps Haynesville undefeated at 4-0.

Isaiah Washington was allowed to throw a total of eight passes but accumulated 163 yards and three touchdown passes.  Two of those were from a storm of four touchdowns that came from Alonzo Jackson, Jr.. 

Glenbrook’s Eason Sanders struggled on the passing front only going 9 for 30 for 91 yards, a touchdown but four interceptions.  A bright star for the Apaches was Landry Powel who had 14 carries for 124 yards and a touchdown.  

Haynesville didn’t was time as Jackson jetted downfield on a 33-yard touchdown run.  Washington added a second score for the Tornado with a 53-yard pass.  Glenbrook was already down 14-0 in the first four minutes.  Glenbrook closed in with a 4-yard run from Landry Powell.  Haynesville maintained the 14-7 lead to the end of the first quarter. 

Washington launched an 81-yard touchdown pass to Damondra Martin in the second quarter.  The Tornado padded the lead to 28-7 with a 15-yard run from Jackson in the closing minute.  Haynesville took a 28-7 halftime lead. 

No score in the third quarter, but Glenbrook tried to make it a game again in the fourth quarter as Eason Sanders connected with Jackson Waller on a 20-yard touchdown pass and closed the gap to 28-14.  Haynesville made sure it didn’t get any closer as the Washington-Jackson combination struck again on a 29-yard touchdown pass.  Haynesville took the district 34-14 win.  

The Golden Tornado will be back home next week as they will face the winless Plain Dealing Lions
