Cimarron-Memorial's Demaryae Williams rushed for 115 yards and two touchdowns on 11 carries Friday to lead the Spartans football team to a 21-14 opening-night victory against host Basic.
Williams scored on runs of 49 and 3 yards, and Taz Taoipu added a 79-yard touchdown run in gaining 125 yards on eight carries.
“It was an ugly win. We had a lot of errors and mental mistakes,” Cimarron coach John Parcells said. “We didn’t execute up to our standards. We have to get better and fast, especially in the league (the Northwest Division) we play in.”
Parcells said Basic was limited to less than 80 yards of offense on just 24 plays, while his team amassed 410 yards on 66 plays in controlling the clock.
“I’m proud of the kids for overcoming adversity and doing what we needed to do to win,” Parcells said.
