Through two games this season, the Plainview Indians have made it clear they will face any opponent from any state.

Through two games this season, the Plainview Indians have made it clear they will face any opponent from any state.

Friday night they produced another dominating performance, this time against the Sanger Indians from Texas, winning a 42-7 at Plainview Stadium. 

The victory was the first in six tries against Sanger for Plainview.

Another streak that managed to stay intact was that Plainview has yet to allow any second half points this season from an opponent. 

In fact, the only bright spot for Sanger was one play late in the first quarter when receiver Dillon Wilkerson rolled right on an end-around play and hit Hank Lemons down the sideline for a 63-yard touchdown. 

The rest of the game belonged to Plainview. In fact, Sanger had a minus 25 rushing yards on 17 runs and finished the game with just 110 total net yards against the smothering Plainview defense.

 “We played extremely well on defense,” Plainview coach Joe Price said. 

“We put together what turned out to be a good game plan, and the players went out and executed it perfectly. We had a solid game from everyone on both sides of the football. It was such a total victory for this team. I am very proud of their intensity right now.”

No. 2 Plainview (2-0), scored on its first two possessions. 

A 9-yard run up the middle by Jaxon Clemons finished a 5-play, 52-yard drive and gave Plainview a 7-0 lead two minutes into the game. On their next possession Plainview used nine plays to go 67 yards for a touchdown with the score coming on an 11-yard quarterback keeper by Brock Parham.

Parham had a solid night running the Plainview offense. 

He had 11 carries for 82 yards and one touchdown and was 9-of-20 passing for 130 yards with two touchdowns.

Plainview tightened the pressure in the second quarter. 

They used 16 plays to drive 72 yards and killed off six minutes of clock time to move for their third score half-way through the quarter. 

Payton Webber scored on a 4-yard scamper around right end to put Plainview up 21-7.

“Brock (Parham) did an excellent job tonight of running and passing,” Price said.  

“I thought he had a good command of our offensive game plan, and he ran our offense well. Other teams must respect his running and his passing. It’s good to have a quarterback that has both these key skills.”

Plainview managed one more touchdown with the first half winding down. 

A 61-yard drive that took just five plays and two minutes culminated when  Parham hit Cason Dillon with a 29-yard scoring pass to increase Plainview’s advantage to 28-7 at the half.

Plainview finished the game with 51 rushes for 324 yards (7 yards a carry) and 158 passing yards for 482 total net yards. 

Plainview had 26 first downs while limiting Sanger to just six. Sanger managed just two first downs following the break.

Two second-half possessions put the icing on the cake for Plainview. A 10-yard scoring run by Clemons finished a 9-play, 60-yard march for a 35-7 lead. 

Then on their next possession, Plainview went up 42-7. 

The touchdown came when Blake Nowell got behind the Sanger secondary, and Parham hit him in stride for a 36-yard touchdown pass. 

“Our offensive line did a great job tonight,” Price said. “It’s obvious we were controlling things up front when we get the kind of yards and scoring opportunities we got tonight.”    

Plainview will host the Tuttle Tigers at 7:30 p.m.Friday night. 

The Tigers moved to 2-0 Friday night with a 26-14 win over Kingfisher.
