GRANBY — The Lamar Tigers cruised to their 37th consecutive victory with a 63-0 win Friday night over the East Newton Patriots at Don Johnston Stadium.
Lamar scored 28 points in the first quarter and then led 51-0 at halftime, just dominating East Newton.
Stephen Davis found Michael Tanner for a 47-yard touchdown only 18 seconds into the contest and the Tigers already led 15-0 only 1:57 in after a muffed punt snap by East Newton set the Tigers up at the East Newton 10. On the next play, Cooper Lucas scored on a 10-yard run.
Stuart McKarus scored a 8-yard TD run and the Tigers scored one more TD in the first.
Just a minute into the second quarter, Lucas bolted 53 yards for a 35-0 lead and 49 seconds later, another muffed snap helped the Tigers to a safety and a 37-0 lead 10:07 before halftime.
McKarus added a 20-yard run at 8:41 and Dante Stahl scored a TD just as the half expired for that commanding 51-0 advantage.
Dinner and Stahl scored the only TDs of the turbo clock second half.
East Newton — 0-2 overall, 0-1 Big 8 — returns to action Friday against Cassville, who rebounded from a 28-0 loss to Lamar in the season opener with a 39-28 Week 2 win over Reeds Spring, a future Big 8 member.
The Wildcats of Cassville poured on 25 points after halftime for the win, after Reeds Spring led 15-14 at intermission.
Shannon Haney and Anthony Tolbert did the damage for the Wildcats, overcoming three interceptions thrown by Haney.
Last season, Cassville defeated East Newton 42-16 … this season, the Patriots remain looking for their first points after being held scoreless by Lighthouse Christian and Lamar.
