HOOKS, Texas—It took less than three min­utes for Hooks to score the only points it needed as the Hor­nets ran away with a 40-0 vic­tory over Queen City on Fri­day night in a non-dis­trict con­test at their Home­com­ing game at Hor­nets Sta­dium.

Hooks (1-2) took the open­ing kick­off and marched 57 yards in eight plays.

Ma­son Vasquez set up the touch­down with a 16-yard run up the mid­dle and then car­ried it in from a yard out.

The Hor­nets scored quickly again on their next pos­ses­sion, driv­ing 70 yards on just five plays.

Quar­ter­back Con­ner Price set up the touch­down with a 48-yard sprint down the left side­line to the 10-yard line. Vasquez scored on the next play for a 13-0 ad­van­tage.

The Hor­nets weren’t through in the first quar­ter as Jack Ded­ner scored on a 14-yard run with just 58 sec­onds left in the open­ing pe­riod for a 20-0 ad­van­tage.

Mar­quiz Estell stretched the Hor­nets’ lead to 26-0 at half­time af­ter haul­ing in a 15-yard pass from Price mid­way in the sec­ond pe­riod.

Hooks had 212 yards rush­ing in the first half, with Vasquez lead­ing the way with 82 yards on nine car­ries.

Vasquez added an­other touch­down in the third quar­ter on a 5-yard run, and fin­ished with 153 yards on 16 at­tempts.

Queen City started off the sec­ond half on a bad note when it fum­bled the kick­off and Hooks re­cov­ered at the Bull­dogs’ 36-yard line.

The Bull­dogs’ de­fense stopped the Hor­nets at the 24-yard line.

Queen City ad­vanced the ball to near mid­field, and af­ter a punt and two Hooks’ penal­ties, the Hor­nets started from their 10-yard line.

On the third play, Price tossed a screen pass to Ded­ner and the se­nior run­ning back dashed 60 yards to the 15-yard line.

Two plays later, Vasquez scored on the 5-yard run to in­crease the lead to 33-0 with 4:03 left in the third quar­ter.

Lo­gan Mur­ray closed out the Hor­nets scor­ing with a 15-yard run in the fourth quar­ter.
