Ryan makes quick work of Lions in weather-shortened game (Denton RC)

By Steve Gamel Contributing Writer, Denton Record Chronicle

Facing a winless Carrollton R.L. Turner team that has scored just 14 points all season, No. 3 Ryan didn’t hesitate to sit its starters Thursday in favor of getting all of its backup players some long-overdue playing time.

The outcome was pretty much the same, too. Backup quarterback Martin Rodriguez threw for three touchdowns and ran for two more as Ryan raced out to a 42-0 lead before the game was called just before the end of the first half due to inclement weather. Rain pounded the turf at C.H. Collins Athletic Complex for most of the day and well into the start of the game. The first and only lightning delay came with 3:08 left in the second quarter.

Coaches from both sides chose not to wait it out. The game will not be rescheduled for a later date. Ryan improves to 8-0 on the year and 5-0 in District 4-5A Division I. Turner falls to 0-8 overall.
