CISCO - Emory Miller rushed for one touchdown and caught a TD pass, and the Kilgore College defense came away with seven turnovers Saturday as the No. 5 Rangers remained unbeaten with a 29-14 Southwest Junior College Football Conference win over Cisco at Chesley Field.
Kilgore improves to 5-0 overall and 3-0 in the SWJCFC with the win. Cisco drops to 1-4 and 1-2. KC has now won 15 of the last 17 meetings with Cisco dating back to 1997, and Saturday's win for KC was the fifth in a row in the series.
Kilgore jumped out to a 24-0 lead at halftime, with Miller scoring on a 12-yard run and a 9-yard touchdown reception from Tanner Tausch.
Tausch also threw a 16-yard touchdown pass to Ed'Marques Batties in the first half, and Youvany Arvizu booted a field goal to give the Rangers the big cushion.
In the second half, KC got a safety and another field goal from Arvizu - this one from 37 yards out - to seal the victory.
The Rangers rushed for 143 yards in the contest, led by Karrion Morrisey with 13 carries for 86 yards.
Cisco, using two quarterbacks, managed to pass for 211 yards but the Rangers' James Jones intercepted two passes and recovered a fumble to head up the KC defensive effort. Jones now has three interceptions for the season.
The Rangers will visit Blinn on Saturday and then trek to Northeastern Oklahoma on Oct. 13 before closing out the regular season at home with games against Southeast Prep on Oct. 20 and arch-rival Tyler on Oct. 27.
