Pasadena suffers worst defeat in 50-year history of series with Dobie

September 30, 2018

Kevin Berneathy, Dobie’s new head football coach, did something Saturday night that nine previous Longhorns coaches never did.

They beat a Pasadena team by more than 50 points.

In the worst one-sided contest in the 50-year history of the series dating back to 1969, Dobie crushed the Eagles 59-7 in a District 22-6A game at Veterans Memorial Stadium.

En route to the Longhorns accumulating 404 total yards by halftime and leading 49-0, the 52-point victory breaks the previous worst rout in the series of 48 points set in 1987 when the Longhorns won 48-0.

Dobie upped its series lead on Pasadena to 40-9-1, while raising its winning streak on the Eagles to 16 straight. Pasadena’s last win over the Horns came in the memorable 2002 season when the Eagles also defeated area-ranked Pearland and lost to nationally-ranked North Shore by a touchdown.

Berneathy’s Bunch also broke the series record for most points scored against a Pasadena team, eclipsing the old record of 55 points set just five years ago. Overall, it was the fourth time for Dobie to score in the 50s on Pasadena. The other two years were 1978 and 2010.

The Longhorns finished their first seven possessions with touchdowns, four on the ground, three in the air.

Kris Morris scored on touchdown runs of 50 and 49 yards, Darius Hale rushed for touchdowns of two and 18 yards. Jace Young scored from three yards out.

The scoring passes went for 80 to Cameron Guy and a pair to Jeremiah Ballard, good for 33 and 22 yards.

Sophomore kicker Joshua Hernandez was 7-for-7 in point-after kicks.

Dobie held a 466-151 advantage in total yardage. The Eagles, in finishing a negative 2 in the passing game, managed 153 on the ground. Dobie doubled that and then some with 331 yards.
