MINEOLA — Trevion Sneed scored three times on the ground, Mineola's defense got into the scoring act with a Pick 6, and the Yellow Jackets earned a 44-7 win over White Oak on Friday in a District 8-3A Division I football game at Meredith Memorial Stadium.

White Oak drops to 0-8 and 0-4 with the loss while Mineola improves to 4-3 and 2-1.

After a scoreless first quarter, Sneed scored on runs of 15 and 4 yards in the second quarter, and then added a 1-yard TD run in the third. The first TD capped an 11-play, 74-yard march for the Yellow Jackets. The next two drives were set up by long runs from Dawson Pendergrass — 73 yards on the first drive and 43 on the second.

Thomas Hooton tossed a 48-yard TD pass to Wylie Franks, and Cole Castleberry returned an interception 77 yards for a touchdown with :17 left in the third as Mineola took a commanding 37-0 lead into the fourth period.

Blake Barlow's 8-yard touchdown pass to Brian Williams got White Oak on the board, capping a 7-play, 41-yard drive that was highlighted by a 29-yard pitch and catch from Barlow to Jackson Frazier.

Pendergrass capped the scoring with a 25-yard run with 2:03 left in the contest.

White Oak will host Gladewater, and Mineola visits Sabine next week.
