H.S. Football: Palestine shutouts the Pittsburg Pirates 32-0 in a homecoming affair


PALESTINE — “Sheldon made some great plays out there,” Angel said. “Gee made some great throws, too. That is something that we have to continue getting better at each week. It was a big night for each of them. Obviously, the offensive line and running backs played a big part in their success with the blocking, which is nice to see. It was a great job by all of them.”

Clark finished the game passing for 12-19 for 258 yards and three touchdowns. Owens finished the game with 15 carries for 95 yards and a rushing touchdown as well as throwing the game-changing touchdown in the third quarter to Sheldon Watson, who finished with 8 receptions for 173 yards and three touchdowns.

If the three-headed monster of Clark, Watson and Owens can keep up this type of play, Angel said the Wildcats could be in a great position heading into district play out of the bye week.
