TAMPA — Chase Litton ran for a touchdown and connected with Deon Thompson for two more as Wharton drubbed Blake 38-7 Friday night.
Wharton (6-2) got out of the gate quickly. The Wildcats opened the game with a 10-play drive on their first possession, capped by a 2-yard TD run by Jeff Keil, the first of his two rushing touchdowns.
The Wildcat defense was equally as dominant, pitching a shutout until the Yellow Jackets were able to finally reach the end zone late.
Litton's night was cut short late in the third quarter when he injured his knee on a sack. He did not return to the game, but Wharton coach David Mitchell said all is well.
"Chase is doing fine," Mitchell said. He'll be all ready to go for next week's big game (against Alonso)."
