CHESTER — The Chester Cyclones used a series of big plays to overwhelm county rival Lewisville 41-8 Friday at Chester High.
All of the Cyclones touchdowns ranged 50-plus yards, and were produced from all facets of the game: offense, defense and special teams.
Lorenzo White returned a punt 75 yards for a score and Quan Caldwell returned a kickoff 93 yards, also for a touchdown. White and Caldwell also brought the crowd to their feet offensively.
White, a tailback, gave the Cyclones a 27-0 halftime lead with a 91-yard run. The previous series, Caldwell grabbed a 78-yard pass from Tommie Sanders, and later caught a 92-yard score.
I just did what was necessary to help the team, Caldwell said. It could not have been done without blocking from teammates.
Chester coach Anthony Sterling said that the performance was a big improvement from last weeks season-opening loss.
Defensively, we got more people to the ball than we did last week, Sterling said. I would say that we improved about 70 percent from last week.
