Faith Lutheran scored 48 unanswered points to finish the game after Cimarron scored an early touchdown. In two games this season, Faith Lutheran (1-1) has scored 82 points.
“Tonight, every opportunity we had to punch it in, we did,” Faith Lutheran coach Vernon Fox said.
The game had extra significance for Fox because he’s a Cimarron graduate and one of its all-time best players. Two years ago, the school retired his jersey.
David Synder Sr., one of the Cimarron assistant coaches, was Fox’s junior varsity coach in the late 1990s. It is the first time Fox, who is in his third season at Faith Lutheran, has coached against his alma mater.
“Honestly, for me, that was an honor,” Fox said. “The opportunity to coach against them and be on the same field as them was an honor.”
Joyce had touchdown runs of 1, 7 and 4 yards. He added a 50-yard touchdown pass to Brytton Weber. Christian Marshall contributed a 23-yard touchdown run.
Two freshmen had impressive nights defensively for Faith Lutheran. Keagan Touchstone had two fumble recoveries and returned one for a touchdown, and Taimani Mckenzie recorded an interception.
