HUTTO — The Lions couldn’t hang on to a halftime advantage, as the Hippos came bulldozing back in the second half.
Waco High led 14-7 at intermission, but Hutto erupted for 28 second-half points to send the Lions to their first loss of the season.
Hutto, a 9-2 team a year ago, got a dogged effort from quarterback Grayson Doggett, who passed for 198 yards and three touchdowns. That included TD tosses of 60 and 4 yards to Sean Davis, who finished with 118 yards.
Waco High (1-1) unveiled the talents of transfer QB Sean Mooney, and he had some big throws, none bigger than an 85-yard TD bomb to Redmond O’Neal in the first quarter. But Waco High just couldn’t keep pace with Hutto’s second-half surge, which was also aided by the running of Cyron Miller, who topped 100 yards and scored twice.
