Farmersville loses final game against Sunnyvale

by | Nov 7, 2020 | Sports

Playing their final game of the season, Farmersville football were unable to push themselves into the playoffs, falling to the Sunnyvale Raiders 60-7 in their senior night.

With the loss, Farmersville finishes the season with a 2-7 overall record, including a 1-4 mark in district.

Thoughts from coach Brandon Hankins

“They’re a good football team,” Hankins said. “They’re one blocked punt away from being the district champion, having Caddo down until the fourth quarter. They do a good job, they always have. Coach Settle does a good job with his kids. They’re well coached and disciplined, and do things right.”

Key Play of the Game: Sunnyvale defensive end Obi Arinze records a pick-six

Already leading by 15 points midway through the first quarter, Sunnyvale gained complete control of the game on Farmersville’s next offensive drive, when Arinze picked off an EJ Chairez pass for an easy touchdown. This defensive score transformed the game from a competitive atmosphere to a blowout.

Top Farmers of the Night: Braden Lair & Travis Zingaro

In their final game as Farmers, seniors Lair and Zingaro had great games on the ground. Lair led the team in rushing yards, finishing with 12 carries for 59 yards. Zingaro had the lone score for Farmersville, running it in from 12 yards out.

Impact Stat: Five Farmers turnovers by the start of the second quarter

Part of Sunnyvale’s success in the first quarter, where they jumped out to a 36-0 lead, was Farmersville’s inability to hold onto the ball. By the start of the second quarter, the Farmers had turned the ball over five times, including two fumbles and three interceptions. These turnovers were demoralizing for Farmersville, never allowing the home squad to gain any traction until it was too late.
