Friday Night Recap Week 8

Friday Night Spotlight Game of the Week

#8 D.W. Butler (5-1) 28, #9 Myers Park (6-1) 7

Since losing to now-#1 Mallard Creek in the first game of the season, the D.W. Butler Bulldogs have reeled off four straight victories. Friday Night the streak continued at Southwestern 4A rival Myers Park. The Mustangs are not slouches either, coming into Friday’s contest Myers Park was a perfect 6-0 and featured one of the state’s most high-powered offenses. Not once this season have the Mustangs scored less than 21 points in a game. That was until they met the buzz saw that is the Butler Bulldog defense.

Myers Park controlled the first half of the game, mainly by dictating field position. On average, the Mustangs started their first-half drives near midfield while Butler’s average first half starting spot was their own 16-yard line. However, Myers Park was unable to capitalize on the great field position as they were only able to muster seven points in the half. The lone score came on Sophomore stud WR Muhsin Muhammad III’s 29-yard TD reception from Brayden Hawkins.

The offensive struggles continued for the Mustangs in the second half. Myers Park had a chance to take total control of the game early. Their first two drives started inside the Butler 40, but couldn’t take advantage either time. Credit the Butler secondary (T.J. Cusick, Damel Hickman, and Keyon Lesane), they shut down the Myers Park three-headed passing attack of Hawkins, Muhammad, and Elijah Bowick.

Butler’s offense finally woke up in the second half. After losing senior star-RB Nijere Peoples to an injury on their first offensive snap of the game, the Bulldogs turned to Sophomore Jamal Worthy to fill the void. After shaking off the cobwebs in the first half, Worthy feasted on the defense. In total, the young RB piled up 152 rushing yards, 117 of which came in the second half. Though he didn’t break the plane himself, Worthy was the driving force behind the Bulldog offense.

Quasean Holmes initiated the Butler assault on the scoreboard. The Sophomore RB tied the game on a run from the Wildcat formation left for 10 yards and a TD. Butler didn’t stop there. After stifling the Myers Park offense again, the Butler offense rewarded its defense by seizing the lead on a Christian Peters 27-yard TD pass to Navarreo Rorie. From there, the Butler defense did the rest, shutting down the Mustangs for the rest of the game. Keyon Lesane padded the lead on an 11-yard TD run on an end around play in the fourth quarter, and Holmes put the final nail in the coffin with 3-yard run for his second TD of the game to give Butler the 28-7 lead.

Butler (5-1, 3-0) will travel to meet up with another Southwestern 4A rival Independence (1-6, 0-3). Myers Park will look to get back into the win column against undefeated conference foe Hickory Ridge (7-0, 3-0) at home.
