SALADO — It may have taken more than three hours to complete, but Traion Smith and Aaron Sims made their statements in the first half-hour. And they never really stopped making noise.

The Cameron Yoe duo combined for 409 yards of offense and six touchdowns as the No. 1-ranked Yoemen pulled away to a 57-28 victory Friday night over Salado at Eagle Stadium in both teams’ District 13-2AI opener. What began as a shootout turned into a Yoeman rout as Cameron managed to shutout the explosive Eagles in the second half to secure the win to go 4-0 and keep Salado winless at 0-4.

Smith got the Yoemen out of the gate quickly by going 59 yards on the first play from scrimmage to the Salado 5. On the next play, Smith took a swing pass from Jason Kopriva for the touchdown.

Cameron was ahead 13-0 before the eight-minute mark as the Yoemen went 48 yards in four plays with Sims taking a reverse 21 yards into the end zone. But it wouldn’t be a Cameron cakewalk.

On the second play of the ensuing possession, McLane Carter connected with Davis Little on a 75-yard touchdown bomb to cut the lead to 13-7 at the 8:08 mark. The Eagles took the lead later in the quarter when they capped a 47-yard march in seven plays with Carter finding a wide-open Jacob Little for a 21-yard scoring strike.

Both teams traded touchdowns before the quarter ended with Smith taking a direct snap and going in from the 3 for the Yoemen and the Eagles answering with a 67-yard bomb from Carter to Kase Spears and a 21-19 Eagle lead.

Cameron retook the lead for good within the first minute of the second quarter with Smith making a cut-back move for a 10-yard touchdown run.

The Yoemen struggled with point-afters early on and led 25-21. They added to that with another direct snap to Smith for a 4-yard tally up the middle and a 32-21 lead.

The Yoemen made it three straight scores when Kopriva hit the speedy Sims with a 43-yard touchdown pass and run and a 39-21 lead with 5:23 to go in the half.

Salado narrowed it to 39-28 with another Carter-to-Davis Little connection of 30 yards and the Eagles trailed at halftime 39-28. Cameron outscored Salado 18-0 in the second half with Kopriva scoring on a 1-yard keeper after he set up his touchdown with 29-yard scamper to the 1. A 37-yard field goal by Michael Evan made it 49-28 early in the fourth. Kopriva hit Colton Shuffield with an 11-yard touchdown pass and the Yoemen would add two more on a safety.

Smith led all rushers with 187 yards on 18 carries.
