Waco Parkview, their original opponent, had to back out of the game because they could not a field due to too many injuries.

The game was called with seven minutes left in the third quarter because of six-man football’s 45-point mercy rule.

Cornerstone improved to 5-1, with the lone loss being on the road to two-time defending Texas Christian Athletic Fellowship state champion Azle Christian.

Josh Beaird scored three touchdowns, two on kickoff returns and another on a 78-yard run. Brendan Brawley scored two touchdowns, one on a kickoff return, and threw two extra-point passes.

Sam Rue, Luke Pixler and Josh Yant also had touchdowns. Logan Weems kicked had two-point kicks.

Cornerstone coach Bobby Johnson called numerous athletes up from the junior varsity to allow them to also be a part of the homecoming festivities, and he lauded their play.

“Tanner Ives, our JV spread back, is definitely one to keep an eye on,” he said. “He is a first-year player who is a sophomore and a natural.”
