Hoxie scored early and often to take a 33-0 lead into the locker room at halftime and coasted to a 39-0 rout of the Brinkley Tigers in front of a homecoming crowd Friday night at Crider Field.
It did not take long for the Mustangs to light up the scoreboard. Houston Hancock scored on a one-yard run and Brad Cook added the PAT for a 7-0 lead with 6:29 to play in the first quarter.
Tyler Thompson added to Hoxie's lead with 2:32 left in the quarter, scoring on a one-yard run. The extra-point was good by Cook and the Mustangs led 14-0.
Alex Ward scored on a one-yard run with 55 seconds left in the quarter to increase the lead to 20-0. The conversion attempt was no good.
Ward lit up the scoreboard again on a 21-yard run with 20 seconds to play. Cook added the extra point for a 27-0 Mustang first-quarter lead, as the stampede continued.
The Mustangs' Cade Crisler grabbed a Tiger interception and returned it 26 yards for a touchdown with 10:23 left in the second quarter. The conversion attempt was unsuccessful, but the Mustangs took a 33-0 lead to the field house.
Blaine Middlecoff scored Hoxie's final points on a six-yard run with 1:40 left in the third quarter, setting the game's final score at 39-0.
Hoxie racked up 272 yards of offense, while holding Brinkley to 10 yards.
Houston Waldrupe totaled 88 yards on five carries. Hancock carried four times for 50 yards, and Ward had 45 yards on six carries. Thompson notched 29 yards on five carries, and Seth Swartzlander recorded 14 yards on two carries. Blake Snow had nine yards on one carry. Cook earned seven yards on two carries, and Middlecoff closed with a touchdown.
On defense, Crisler recorded two interceptions and a touchdown.
Hoxie will finish their regular season next week at Piggott.
