The Fulshear High School football team has been the choice for Homecoming in three of the Chargers’ first five games during the 2021 season.
Coach Nick Codutti’s squad has now spoiled all three celebrations after the Chargers defeated Lake Creek 42-15 Friday at Montgomery ISD Stadium in Montgomery.
“Our kids play hard,” Fulshear head coach Nick Codutti said. “There hasn’t been a game this season where we haven’t out-physicaled the other team. That’s what it came down to - We out-physicaled them.”
The Chargers were first to score with a junior Jax Medica reeling in a 52-yard touchdown reception from junior quarterback Parker Williams a little over a minute into the game.
Lake Creek was able to grab its only lead of the night with a 37-yard run from Sawyer Matchett, but senior Tyjae Williams answered with a 20-yard touchdown to help put Fulshear up 16-8.
A fumble recovery by Jacob Hoffart set up a Seth Smith for a three-yard touchdown run with six minutes left in the first half.
The route was on for Fulshear.
Medica capped a near-perfect first half for Fulshear with a 13-yard reception for a touchdown. Fulshear led 29-8 at the break.
Tyjae Williams found the end zone again for a four-yard score with four minutes remaining in the third quarter.
Parker Williams closed out the scoring for Fulshear with a 33-yard run early in the fourth quarter.
Fulshear had 475 yards of offense, including 264 rushing yards. The Chargers’ defense limited Lake Creek to 256 yards of offense, including 167 yards rushing.
Williams was 12-of-24 for 208 yards and two touchdowns. Williams rushed for 115 yards and two touchdowns. Medica caught eight passes for 148 yards and two touchdowns.
Fulshear (4-1, 1-0) will seek a sweep against Montgomery ISD teams next at home against Montgomery on Thursday.
