Sand Rock junior quarterback Dylan Mackey only completed three passes all night long last Friday against Class 2A, Region 7 foe Gaston, but those three passes were all daggers in the Bulldogs’ hearts.

Mackey threw for 151 yards and three touchdowns to help lead the Wildcats to a 49-6 win Gaston in the region opener for both teams.

The Wildcats (2-0, 1-0) built a 35-0 halftime lead and led 42-0 through three quarters. 

Gaston (0-2, 0-1) scored its lone touchdown on a 9-yard pass by freshman quarterback Jordan Douglas to senior receiver Destin Pollard with 8:37 to go in the fourth quarter.

Sophomore running back Mitchell Smith led the Bulldog rushers with 40 yards on 10 attempts.

Gaston hosts Section next week in another region contest.
