HOLLIDAY — Cody Patton had seen the television highlights and studied the game tapes.

The Holliday coach knew Dee Paul would be most difficult to stop. But seeing Munday and its speedy quarterback in person is an entirely different animal.

Paul torched the Eagles for 326 yards and five touchdowns as the No. 1 Moguls zoomed to a 49-7 victory, their third this season by at least 40 points.

Paul scored on touchdown runs of 73, 61, 55, 3 and 62 yards, showing off his breathtaking speed even when Holliday defenders took good angles to the ball.

"They came out here and got after us, took care of business," Patton said. "It was a great game plan by them. They have athletes everywhere and do a great job with them."

Munday (5-0), which heads into its bye with the top ranking in Class A, might be best known for offensive outbursts, but the Moguls defense looked equally impressive.

Munday sacked Holliday quarterback Brennan Whitaker six times in the first half, with L.J. Collier claiming three and Ryder Cude notching two. Tyrone Neskorik also disrupted plays up the middle.

Running lanes were scarce and time to find receivers even scarcer. The Eagles finished with 99 total yards and had 15 running plays gain negative yardage.

"Those guys really played well and got pressure to (Whitaker) so they couldn't look down the field," Munday coach Patrick Corcoran said. "They had to throw the short stuff and then we had to make tackles."

Paul made a nice move to score from 73 yards out on the game's second play, but his most impressive score was a 61-yarder that should have been for a loss. The SMU commit avoided a sack, broke a couple tackles and sprinted from sideline to sideline.

"There were a lot of plays where I thought we were hustling to the ball, but speed just outran us a lot of times," Patton said. "You just have to keep getting after it and maybe good things will happen."

Paul's only completion was a 29-yard touchdown strike to Tyrone Neskorik late in the second quarter that converted a long third down and sent the Moguls into intermission ahead 28-0.

Holliday avoided the shutout on Sam Shirley's 12-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter after the Eagles recovered a Munday fumble deep in their end.

Paul said afterward his team is getting better every week, a scary proposition for the rest of Class A.

"We had good practices this week," said Paul, who hadn't surpassed the 300-yard mark before. "The Stamford game really prepared us for a team that's going to fight back with us. We've got to fight even harder."

Holliday (3-2) limps into its bye week with a few banged-up bodies and will look to regroup in two weeks against Henrietta.
