SEMINOLE â Stanton is known for defense and physical play in the trenches.
The Buffaloes still had that in their 30-6 win over Abernathy Friday in Seminole in bi-district playoff action. They just had the passing to go along with it.
âWe didnât know what to expect in a first-round playoff game,â Stanton head coach John Peterson said. âEverybodyâs hungry to stay in the playoffs. Abernathy did a great job of trying to take away our run, so we adjusted a little bit, started throwing the ball.â
Stanton quarterback Tyler Fulton aired it out, completing 10-of-14 passes for 197 yards. The scoring for Stanton, however, still came from the ground attack. Adam Montezâs huge 80-yard run set the tone for the Buffs in the first quarter. Oscar Reyna and Blake Evans found the endzone, too.
There shouldnât be any surprise at Stantonâs ability to go through the air, according to Peterson. He said Fulton is capable of making things happen with his arm and, if needed, heâll do it again.
âItâs always been there, itâs just we havenât had to use it,â Peterson said. âItâll probably play a factor somewhere down the road again.âView more articles in:
