FLOYD — Four turnovers proved to be too much to overcome for a game Floyd squad on Saturday, and the Broncos dropped a 32-20 decision to Logan in 8-man District 4 football.
The loss was the fourth in a row for Floyd (2-7, 0-1 district), although the Broncos made a game of it.
“Too many turnovers is what hurt us,” Floyd coach Rafael Roybal said. “Logan capitalized on three of them. We gave the game away.”
The Longhorns (7-1, 1-0) jumped on top 8-0 early, but junior Hunter Terry got the Broncos back in business with a 50-yard run to the Logan 10, setting up his own 1-yard TD run three plays later to make it 8-6.
Later in the half, the Longhorns took advantage of a fumble recovery at the Floyd 19, going up 14-6 when senior Truitt Frost tossed a 6-yard scoring pass to sophomore Tanner Sorrels.
Floyd kept the game close for the most part, but could not get over the top. Sophomore Leon Mendoza, had a strong game on defense with three sacks, forced a fumble which led to a 55-yard scoring pass from Terry to senior Chet Chenault.
Senior Blake Strack picked up 74 yards rushing and 39 yards receiving for the Longhorns.
“We like to run the ball,” Logan coach Billy Burns said. “Floyd kept us contained, so we had to start airing the ball out.”
Strack put an end to Floyd’s final bid with an interception with about three minutes left.
Sophomore J’Kobie Lee added 33 yards rushing for the Broncos.
Floyd’s next game is set for 7 p.m. Friday at Clovis Christian.
