By Messenger Staff | Published Saturday, October 6, 2012

The Chico Dragons cruised to their fourth straight victory Friday, as they took care of the Gainesville State School Tornadoes, 44-8.

Chico’s (4-1) offense continued to shine as they put up 30 first half points and 384 yards of total offense.

Hunter York got the scoring started for the Dragons early in the first quarter with a two-yard run to take a 6-0 lead.

Less than a minute later, Chico would strike again when York connected on a 20 yard touchdown pass to Matt Carter giving the Dragons a 13-0 lead.

Early in the second quarter, Dylan Hightower would take his turn putting the ball over the goal line with a 6-yard run, giving Chico a 20-0 lead.

On the ensuing kick the Tornadoes would get their lone score of the night on a 90 yard kickoff return cutting the Dragon lead to 20-8.

Chico would add a Dalton Tullos 32-yard field goal to take a 23-8 lead halfway through the second quarter.

Later in the quarter, Chico’s defense would come up big when Matt Carter returned an interception for a 20 yard score, giving the Dragons a 30-8 halftine lead.

Chico would add two more scores in the third quarter. York connected on a 24 yard strike to Jericho McGuire early in the second half to extend the Dragon lead to 37-8.

Trevor Richard picked up Chico’s final score of the night on a 6 yard run.

The Dragons begin district play next week when they travel to Valley View.
