CHANNELVIEW -- Memorial High quarterback Jordan Wyatt led his team to four touchdowns in the second quarter -- scoring two of them himself -- as the Mavericks capped off a perfect non-district schedule with a 49-12 romp over Channelview on Friday night.
Wyatt joined forces with teammate Reggie Turner for nearly 300 rushing yards, three times Channelview's team total.
Turner piled up 173 yards on 19 carries and scored twice. Wyatt ran 12 times for 125 yards, including a 78-yard scamper late in the first quarter to set up the game's first score -- a 7-yard TD run by Turner.
Wyatt launched the second-quarter Memorial explosion with a 18-yard TD burst. The Falcons countered with a 47-yard TD run by Matthew Williams. Channelview didn't get back in the end zone until the final minute of the game.
Ahead 14-6, the Mavericks bolted to a 35-6 halftime edge with three TDs in the final six minutes of the first half. Adrian Boutte scored from 9 yards out, Turner from 53 and Wyatt again from the one.
In the third quarter, Wyatt found Justin Acosta for a 41-yard TD strike, one of only three Memorial completions in the contest. Boutte finished up the Mavericks' TD binge with a 7-yard run.
Tara Cole knocked through all seven PAT kicks for Memorial.
The Mavericks will take their 3-0 record into District 22-5A play beginning Sept. 27 at home against Manvel. All seven of Memorial's district games will be played at Veterans Memorial Stadium.
