1411Channelview quarterback Jalen Hurts passed for three touchdowns while teammate Chris Jefferson ran for three as the Falcons overwhelmed South Houston 56-7 on Saturday night at Veterans Memorial Stadium.

Jefferson piled up 187 yards on 22 carries. He scored on an 8-yard run late in the first half that helped lift Channelview to a 21-0 halftime lead.

Early in the second half, Hurts connected with Anthony Means on a 69-yard scoring strike. Down 28-0, the Trojans got their only TD on a 16-yard run by R.J. Maddox. But Jefferson countered with scoring runs of 16 and 4 yards in a four-minute span bridging the third and fourth quarters.

The Falcons added two more TDs in the fourth, the first on a 15-yard pass from Hurts to Devonte Holt-Watson and the finale on a 98-yard interception return by Albert Dawson.

Trojans quarterback Tatum Girdy picked up 153 yards rushing on 24 carries. South Houston was able to complete only two passes in the contest.

South Houston will be one of four Pasadena ISD teams to take 0-2 non-district records into the start of District 22-6A action next week. Only Pasadena was able to claim a victory during the first two weeks of the season.

The Eagles lost their bid for a 2-0 start when they fell 49-48 to Houston Chavez on Saturday night. A two-point conversion attempt with 20 seconds left that would have won the game for Pasadena was stopped by Chavez.
