College Park marches to victory over Fort Bend Austin

SUGAR LAND — In its third-straight game outside of Montgomery County, College Park made itself comfortable early in a 46-7 win over host Fort Bend Austin at Mercer Stadium on Saturday evening.

The Cavaliers (2-1) raced out to a 20-0 lead in the first quarter, then marched to victory in the non-district meeting.

“The kids did a great job,” College Park coach Lonnie Madison said. “Every win is a good win. We’re in the third game of the season and we’re still trying to evaluate. We were able to get a lot of kids in the game and we’ll have a lot of kids to evaluate on tape, which is great. Lots of good things. Happy for the kids.”

College Park’s offense was strong all night, particularly through the air. Junior Ty Buckmon completed 11 of 18 passes for 230 yards, two touchdowns and a pick, and senior signal caller Hank Hudson completed 7 of 9 passes for 126 yards and three scores. Six players caught at least a pass, and four scored.

“Ty Buckmon and Hank Hudson were our two main guys last year, and they’re our main guys this year,” Madison said. “It’s nice when they’re firing on all cylinders.”

Defensively, the Cavaliers held Austin (0-2) to 231 yards of offense, much of it coming in the second half when the score was lopsided. Marcus Scott II and Jaeren Taylor picked off passes, and Curt Evangelister recovered a fumble. The lone Bulldog scoring drive was propelled inside the 10-yard line by a hook and ladder on fourth down.

“They did a good job,” Madison said of the defense. “We’re still wanting to get off the field when we have our opportunities on third and fourth down. (Austin) made a play on the trick play, but overall the kids did great tonight.”

After its opening drive fizzled, College Park found the end zone on their next four possessions.

The first two scores were passes of 77 and 66 yards from Buckmon to Brigman and Conner Dunphy, respectively. Brigman had four catches for 121 yards and two scores.
