Pleasant Grove

TEXARKANA — The Pleasant Grove Hawks rebounded on Friday night with a convincing 48-28 win over Midland Christian at Hawk Stadium.

The Hawks led by as many as 34-7 at halftime.

Spencer Danner had 16 carries for 156 yards and three touchdowns, including a 45-yard score. The Hawks had 496 yards total offense with 360 of those yards coming on the ground.

Ahkhari Johnson completed 6-12 passing for 136 yards and two touchdowns, including a 34-yard strike to Jaylen Boardley and a 40-yard score to Victor Shaw. Johnson also added five carries for 77 yards on the ground.

Boardley carried nine times for 32 yards. Jayden Stewart had 13 carries for 84 yards. Jordan Patterson had three carries for 21 yards. Torrion Phillips had two carries for minus-9 yards. Walker Wright had a carry for a loss of a yard.

“It’s a great night, and the cool thing is these guys are kids,” coach Josh Gibson said. “Last week we play a team that’s two and a half times our size and you hear people make comments about them, and you have to deal with it. And it’s not fun to listen to kids get hazed on. I’m a big guy. I can take it. We play these kind of caliber of teams, and the resilience they showed to take a step and grow this week, it’s awesome. My hat’s off to our kids. They’re awesome.”

Johnson, Corban Franklin, and Danner were the Rogers Trophy players of the game.

Pleasant Grove gets back in action next Friday against Frisco Memorial in Frisco. Catch the action on 94.1 FM ESPN Texarkana with Bob DelGiorno calling the action. Kickoff is at 7:00 p.m.
