On the heels of a tough loss to Sulphur last week, the Plainview Indians bounced back in a big way Thursday night, rolling over the Dickson Comets 58-6 at Plainview Stadium.

Plainview coach Joe Price is no stranger to bouncing back from a loss with a win.

The Indians bounced back and then some racking up a 38-0 halftime lead against the Comets. 

On the opening drive, Plainview hit the ground running.

Plainview running back CJ Jefferson set the tone for the game, busting off a 42-yard rush to put the Indians within striking distance. Jefferson then barreled 6 yards for a touchdown to give Plainview a lead that they would never give up.

After a Dickson punt, Plainview kept its foot on the gas and the ball in quarterback Spencer Somerville and running back CJ Jefferson’s hands. 

Somerville connected with receiver Grant Gorrell for 34-yard reception to start the drive. CJ Jefferson ended the drive in the endzone, carrying the ball seven yards for a touchdown to extend the Indian’s lead to 12-0.

Plainview’s defense would force another punt, which allowed Spencer Somerville to strike again, this time connecting with Lane Ross for a 31-yard touchdown reception, bringing the Plainview lead to 20-0.

After the Plainview defense held the Comets to another three and out, Somerville took a break and sophomore quarterback Brock Parham took the reins of the Plainview offense.

Parham picked up right where Somerville left off, orchestrating a touchdown drive through the air on his first drive of the game.

After a 26 yard end around rush by Plainview receiver Blake Nowell, Parham connected with Plainview receiver Justin Anderson on a tipped pass for a touchdown, bringing the Indians lead to 26-0.

The Comets woes continued on the next drive. A botched exchange between Dickson quarterback Rusty Beard and running back Brandon Sullivan resulted in a fumble recovery by Plainview deep in Dickson territory.

CJ Jefferson then carried the ball four consecutive times, eventually finding the end zone for his third score of the game on a 3-yard touchdown rush.

Dickson’s offense failed to move the chains, and after another Comet punt, the Plainview offense went back to work.

After Parham displayed his ability to throw the ball, the sophomore then showed off his legs, scrambling 35-yards for a touchdown on the first play of the drive to give Plainview a 38-0 lead.

Not much changed after the halftime break.

Plainview’s Justin Anderson once again showed off his hands, this time on the defensive end, intercepting Dickson quarterback Rusty Beard and returning it to the 20 yard line.

With a short field, Parham once again found pay dirt, scrambling 20 yards for a touchdown to bring the Indians lead to 44-0,

Another Dickson fumble lead to another Plainview touchdown in the fourth quarter.

Plainview running back Jaxon Clemens broke off a 45 yard rush to extend the blow out to 51-0.

Dickson did prevent the Plainview shut out late in the fourth quarter.

Dickson quarterback Rusty Beard completed a 32-yard pass to receiver Thomas Johnson to give the Comets its sole touchdown of the game, bringing the score to 51-6.

Plainview running back Drake Sisemore brought the game to its final score late in the fourth quarter, finding the endzone from the 15-yard line.

Plainview (6-2, 3-1) will face district opponent Seminole next Friday night at 7:30 p.m. on the road.

A victory for the Indians next week will all but lock up a playoff berth.

Dickson (2-7, 1-4) will return home to face Sulphur next Friday night at 7:30 p.m. at home
