Mayflower’s Adam Dycus was 20 of 42 for 306 yards and five touchdowns in a 45-26 victory at Dumas.

Madison Chamblis caught six passes for 81 yards and three touchdowns. Josh Woodham had 57 yards on four catches and two touchdowns. Drew Duncan caught six passes for 85 yards and Garrett Taylor had two receptions for 56 yards.
“We started slowly, but when we changed the pace and went to a hurry-up offense and found we were in better condition, we could do what we wanted offensively,” said Mayflower coach Jed Davis. “But we made enough mistakes to work on.”
