Aledo rolls Stephenville

By Jarret Johnson

ALEDO — The Aledo Bearcats’ offensive stars took turns landing haymakers Friday night en route to a 56-14 knockout of rival Stephenville 56-14 at Bearcat Stadium.

Aledo, the No. 2-ranked Class 4A team in The Associated Press state poll, scored the first 21 points of the game and opened the second half on a 28-0 run to put the game away. Quarterback Luke Bishop spread the ball around on the way to 248 yards, four touchdowns passing and another 31 yards and one score on the ground.

“You have Ryan Newsome who can throw the ball, catch it, run it. John Whatley can jump up and go catch it, Taco Anderson for sure hands, Quanel Williams did his thing,” Bishop said. “The defense played great tonight too, they killed it.”

Aledo (2-0) opened the scoring with a 72-yard pass from Bishop to Whatley midway through the first quarter. Bishop threw his second touchdown pass on the following drive, hitting Newsome, who made a great adjustment on the play, in the corner of the end zone from 8 yards out.

Bishop’s 13-yard touchdown scramble on the ensuing possession made it 21-0 with 5:30 remaining in the first half. Stephenville (1-1) cut the lead to 21-7 on quarterback Jarrett Stidham’s 11-yard scoring run and almost added another score just before the break, but a 35-yard laser from Stidham went through a receiver’s hands as time expired.

Then the second half happened.

Aledo scored touchdowns on each of its first three plays from scrimmage on gains of 23, 62 and 42 yards. The Bearcats finished with 546 total yards, 287 yards passing.

The offense’s biggest competition this season has come from trying to outdo its defense, which forced two turnovers and held Stephenville to 299 total yards.

Aledo needed six plays on its next possession to cover 87 yards and a 13-0 lead when the Bearcats quarterback found Gibson, a wide receiver, for a 45-yard pass, catch and run.
Anders' 33-yard catch and run up the sideline put Aledo in position.
