Mesquite Horn Blows Out Oak Ridge

Top-seeded Mesquite Horn spotted Conroe Oak Ridge 10 points after the first quarter — and then the Jaguars went off.

Horn outscored the visiting War Eagles 24-0 in the second quarter and 45-14 over the final three quarters en route to a 45-24 victory in the first round of the Texas UIL Class 6A Division I playoffs on Friday.

Jermaine Givens was spectacular, completing 22 of 34 passes for 339 yards and four touchdowns while rushing for another 69 yards and a score on 15 carries — which is basically exactly what Oak Ridge couldn’t let happen.

Givens To Caldwell For 6


After falling behind by 10, Horn’s rally began with a 69-yard touchdown catch and run by Cornell Caldwell. Bee Jay Williamson blocked a punt and took it to the house on the ensuing drive to put Horn ahead 14-10 — and the Jags were off to the races.

Oak Ridge’s final resistance came in the form of a fumble forced by Joseph Ossai and hauled into the end zone by his brother Phillip Ossai that knotted things up at 24 in the third quarter.

Unfortunately for the War Hawks, Horn imposed its will over the final 18 minutes and change, scoring 21 unanswered to lock up the win.

Mesquite Horn (10-1) advances to the area round to play Coppell (10-1) on Friday, Nov. 24, at 1 PM at Eagle Stadium in Allen. Oak Ridge finishes its season at 6-4.
