The Scots con­tin­ued to show­case their dom­i­nance by scor­ing five times in only eight min­utes of the Class 5A Di­vi­sion I re­gional round at the Ford Cen­ter on Satur­day.

Led by Chan­dler Mor­ris’ three first-half touch­down passes, No. 2 High­land Park de­feated the Wolves, 52-7, to ex­tend its win­ning streak to 28 games.

The Scots (13-0), who have won the 5A Di­vi­sion I state ti­tle each of the past two years, ad­vance to the state quar­ter­fi­nals to play the win­ner be­tween John Tyler and Frisco Lone Star.

It took only two plays and 33 sec­onds to start the rout as Mor­ris hit Finn Cor­win for a 61-yard TD pass.

Tim­berview com­mit­ted four turnovers in the first half, the first came on its open­ing drive when High­land Park’s Hud­son Clark in­ter­cepted a pass at­tempt.

Wes­ley Win­ters nailed a 29-yard field goal with 7:27 in the first quar­ter and Tim­berview muffed the en­su­ing kick­off.

The Scots scored four plays later on a 1-yard TD run from Mor­ris with 5:59 left in the pe­riod.

The Wolves ( 7-6), who reached the re­gional round for the first time since 2011, com­mit­ted a third-straight turnover when they fum­bled on the first play of their next drive and Gus Vin­cent re­cov­ered for the Scots.

Two plays later and High­land Park led 24-0 when Mor­ris threw a 26- yard TD to Drew Scott with 5:10 on the clock.

Tim­berview punted on the en­su­ing drive and the Scots took a 31-0 lead with four min­utes in the open­ing quar­ter on a 66-yard punt re­turn for a touch­down by Cor­win, who had six catches and 120 yards at half­time.

High­land Park added its sixth score of the half on its next drive — Mor­ris’ 15-yard pass to Avery Lewis — with 7:05 be­fore the break.

John Beecherl picked off a sec­ond Tim­berview pass at­tempt to end the first half and Hunter Heath added two TD runs in the sec­ond half — from 20 and 2 yards that made it 52-0.

Tim­berview avoided the shutout when quar­ter­back Jor­dan Davis ran it in from 33 yards with 6:46 to play.

Mor­ris was 17 of 24 for 244 yards with three TDs and rushed six times for 24 yards and one TD. Cor­win fin­ished with nine catches for 142 yards and one TD and Scott added 61 yards on three catches and one TD.
