Walnut Springs scored 38 unanswered points to turn a tight game into a 52-6 rout against Oglesby in a Six-Man Division II District 15 opener on Oct. 9.
Quarterback Eddie Whitt was at his best for the 7-0 Hornets, passing for 135 yards and two scores and rushing for 107 yards and another pair of touchdowns.
Walnut Springs also benefitted from a benefitted from a vintage Kody Stack performance - the junior opened the scoring with a one-yard run and added the final two TDs on a 48-yard reception and a 25-yard interception return - and a big night by Ryan Englehardt, who scored on an eight-yard run and had a 54-yard reception.
After Stack began the scoring, Whitt made it 14-6 with a 37-yard sprint to pay dirt early in the second.
Oglesby tried to make it tough by scoring on a three-yard run with 9:56 left in the first half, but it was all Hornets from that point forward.
Whitt scored on a 51-yard jaunt just 32 seconds after Oglesby celebrated its only TD. Englehardt then tacked his touchdown onto the scoreboard and Johnathan Stack followed suit with a 28-yard scoring catch to make it 38-6 at the break.
Kody Stack did the rest, hauling in his TD reception then converting a pick-six defensively, giving the Hornets their fourth win this season via six-manís 45-point mercy rule.
Kody Stack finished with 72 yards on three receptions to go with his three TDs, 12 tackles, a fumble recovery and the interception. Johnathan Stack had three catches for 66 yards.
Englehardt had 10 tackles for Walnut Springs and Mario Ballesteros added nine.
