GEORGETOWN — Despite their matching season win-loss records coming into Friday night’s game, Cedar Park made it clear that the state-ranked Timberwolves are the class of District 19-5A four weeks into the season, beating East View 56-3 at Birkelbach Field in Georgetown.
An overwhelming offensive attack led by Mak Sexton proved to be too much for East View to handle, as the third-year starting quarterback went 19-of-32 passing for 236 yards and five touchdowns.
Sexton connected with Payden Sawicki for a 19-yard touchdown to start the scoring. The Patriots answered with a 40-yard field goal by Reed Honshtein, who also intercepted one of Sexton’s passes in the final minute of the first quarter.
However, that field goal was all the Patriots could muster before Sexton and the Cedar Park offense took the game over with four second-quarter touchdowns. Sexton connected with Sawicki for two more scores in the second quarter and the Timberwolves scored on a flea-flicker to Mitchell Venincasa and a one-yard TD pass to Sammir Alzer to cap off a 98-yard, two-minute drive at the end of the second half.
Cedar Park’s Larry King III returned the opening kickoff of the second half 100 yards for a touchdown before backup quarterbacks Ryan Fail and Brant McDonald got their chances to add to the scoring.
East View’s Jordan Espinoza was a bright spot for the Patriots, with 54 yards on 17 carries. Starting quarterback Aaron Garces went 6-of-13 for 46 yards.
Cedar Park (3-1, 2-0) who will host Rouse next Friday. East View falls to 2-2, 1-1, and will travel to Cedar Creek on Friday.
