Killian wins big over Homestead, 38-0, to keep postseason hopes alive

Killian built a 31-point lead by halftime and won a District 16-8A matchup 38-0 on a rainy afternoon at Harris Field.

Killian (4-3, 2-1), last year’s district champion, remains in the postseason hunt with the victory. Whereas Homestead (2-6, 0-3) has dropped four in a row, the Cougars have won three of four.

Their defense limited the Broncos to 5 yards and three first downs — two via penalties. Killian quarterback Cariq Rackley went 5 for 9 with 68 yards and a touchdown.


Bentavious Thompson: Ran a team-high nine times for 70 yards and two touchdowns for the Cougars.

Joshua King: Added 52 rushing yards and two scores — both from 7 yards out — on seven carries for Killian.


“My team — we’re still young and growing. We still make stupid mistakes because — again — lack of experience, especially now that they’ve experienced a little bit of success. They have to learn to control their emotions and expect to do good things.”

— Killian coach Cory Johnson
