WHITEHOUSE — Nate Brooks completed 22 of 32 passes for 226 yards and a TD and ran for 127 yards on 19 carries with two more scores to help Whitehouse take care of the Jacksonville Indians 56-14 Friday at Wildcat Stadium.
The Wildcats accumulated 605 yards in total offense (311 rushing and 211 passing) in the game and blanked the visitors in the second half.
Trent Williams lead the receiving corps with six receptions for 117 yards and a score. Dominique Hollie was second in rushing with 64 yards on 14 carries and a score. Seven receivers had at least one reception for Whitehouse.
The game was close until late in the second quarter when Jacksonville quarterback Carter McCown was forced to leave because of a knee injury. At the time, the game was tied 14-14, but without their senior leader, the offense struggled the rest of the way.
McCown completed 4 of 13 passes for 89 yards, most of that courtesy of a 78 yard scoring pass to Jeremy McAnally. He also scored on a three-yard run.
On Jacksonville's next possession, McCown was trying to avoid a sack when the eventual tackle left the Indians quarterback on the turf and waiting for assistance.
Whitehouse ran off 49 unanswered points after McCown left. Brooks put Whitehouse in front to stay on a 24-yard scoring pass to Trent Williams with 2:36 to go until halftime.
The second half was all Whitehouse (4-4, 2-3 in District 16-5A), which tacked on five more touchdowns for the final scoreline.
Jacksonville finished with 207 yards of offense, 112 of that rushing with Vadall Johnson (11-63) and Datavian Thacker (7-4) accounting for most of it. Sophomore Vi'Juan High played quarterback for the injured McCown as the Indians dropped to 4-4 overall and 1-4 with the loss.
