High school football: Penalties, turnovers doom Douglass in 14-7 loss to Weatherford

Douglass' lack of discipline in the second half also contributed to an early exit from the playoffs. The Trojans, who were not penalized in the first half, committed 13 fouls for 135 yards over the last two quarters.

Weatherford broke the stalemate with just 3:32 remaining in the game. Junior quarterback Garrett Gaunt sensed pressure, scampered right and fired to the wide open Quentin Reynolds, who walked easily into the end zone. The 42-yard strike and ensuing kick gave the Eagles a 7-0 lead.

Gaunt finished an efficient 12 of 23 for 139 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions.

The Trojans dominated the run game both offensively and defensively. Douglass' offense collected 219 yards rushing; its defense threw Weatherford rushers for minus-5 yards on 26 carries.

But it was Weatherford's stingy defense that created turnovers.

Senior linebacker Joe Leon picked off Douglass quarterback Patrick McKaufman in the fourth quarter and recovered two fumbles.

Although the overall numbers for Weatherford's run game were poor, the biggest run of the game belonged to the victor.

One play after Weatherford recovered its fifth fumble, Jason Nichols ran 17 yards for a touchdown.
