Dane Evans finished 20-of-28 for 325 yards and five touchdown passes to lead the Sanger Indians to a 49-6 win over rival Gainesville Friday night.

Evans, a verbal commit to Tulsa University, threw touchdown passes of 16, 22, 16, 9 and 19 yards, three of which went to Jon Garza.
The Sanger quarterback hooked up with Garza just 50 seconds into the game on a 16-yard strike to give the Indians a 7-0 lead.
Later in the quarter, running back Brock Squire scored the second touchdown of the game on a burst up the middle for a 29-yard touchdown.
Squire led the team with 157 yards on 18 carries and two scores, the other a 3-yard scamper in the third quarter.
In the second quarter, Evans threw two more scores a 22-yard strike to Blake Manning and a 16-yard heave to Dakota Cotton, giving the Indians a 28-0 lead.
The advantage could have had 35 points heading into the half, but Gainesville's Chris White came up with a diving interception in the end zone to stave off another potential Indians score late in the first.
The Leopards lone score came late in the second quarter when quarterback Chance Sikes, who filled in for an injured Denzel Johnson, lobbed a pass to David Moore.
A Sanger defender had a potential interception, but it popped out of his hands and Moore snagged it out of the air while standing in the end zone for a 22-yard score, capping a 70-yard drive. A missed extra point made it 28-6 Indians.
In the second half, Evans hit Garza early in the third with a 9-yard toss, extending the lead to 35-6. Garza's third and final touchdown grab came in the fourth from 19 yards out.
Gainesville (2-7 overall, 0-4 district) had another impressive outing from sophomore running back Adam Berryman who carried the rock 30 more times for the second straight game. Berryman finished with a team-high 119 yards while the rest of the team had three total.
Sikes was 2 for 7 for 32 yards, all of which went to Moore on the receiving end, and an interception. Both teams finished with three turnovers each.
The Leopards finished with 154 total yards and 11 first downs while the Indians, who are now 4-0 in district play, had 542 total yards (325 passing, 217 rushing) and 24 first downs.
The Leopards had 30 yards on three penalties while the Indians had 75 yards on eight penalties.
The Indians and Argyle Eagles will meet for the District 9-3A championship next week.
With the loss to Sanger Friday, Gainesville was officially eliminated from playoff contention, ending any hopes of reaching the postseason for the second straight season under coach Lance Gary.
Meanwhile, the Gainesville Leopards will look to snag their first district win when they host Aubrey at Leopard Stadium. Kick-off for that contest will be at 7:30 p.m. and will be the Leopards season finale.
