Solid second half helps Farmers to third victory

A strong second half performance proved to be the difference maker in a 49-26 win over Bonham on Homecoming.

“We had a little bit of an attitude adjustment at halftime. I thought we came out and played well in the third quarter and that carried over into the fourth,” head coach Sammy Burnett said. “We put up 29 points in the fourth quarter and I thought that was huge. We played extremely well in the second half on defense. For the most part I thought our kids performed well and we found a way to win the game.”

Farmersville (3-1) was up 6-0 at the end of the first quarter on a Chase Hacker 8-yard run.
