The Titans cracked the scoreboard in the final minute of the first half. After the Titans forced the Mounties into their first punt, Dayne Tomlinson had a nice return to the Southmont 42 — and on first down, Tomlinson hauled in a pass from QB Jordon Lazaro and scored on a 42-yard catch and run.
“I think we had two reasonable drives in the first half. I think one resulted in points and the other fizzled out,” Davis said. “It’s just one of those situations where we just didn’t make plays. We tried to change some schemes up, do some things differently than what we did the previous week. We thought that would be better for us and it just didn’t work out.”
In the third quarter, Worm had another rushing TD, Darian Stone had a 16-yard TD reception from Lazaro, and Southmont’s Scott Madison had a rushing TD. Southmont led 56-12 at the close of the quarter. The teams did not score in the final quarter.
The Mounties finished with 391 rushing yards.
The Titans’ Lazaro completed 13 of 28 pass attempts for 160 yards with two TDs and four picks. Tomlinson had eight catches for 116 yards and a TD and Stone had three for 56 and a score.
Taylor finished 0-10, its second straight winless season. The Titans have lost 26 straight games.
“We have to start building the program and part of that has to be our kids going out and being three-sport athletes and developing the relationships with the other athletes and bring them into the program,” Davis said, noting he wants the players to promote the program whenever possible. “... If we make the right big decisions, I think we can get this going in the right direction.”
