FORT WORTH, Texas, Oct. 22 (UPI) -- The coach of a Texas high school football team said a bullying report was filed against him by a parent of an opposing team's player following a 91-0 victory.

Aledo High School beat Fort Worth Western Friday by the lopsided score, pushing its record to 7-0 in a season in which Aledo is averaging 69.3 points per game, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.

"We were just sitting there [after the game]. You'd have thought we got beat," Aledo coach Tim Buchanan said. "I looked around and asked, 'Is there anyone here that feels good?'"

Buchanan later said he received notice Saturday morning a Western Hills parent filed a bullying report against him.

"I have to address it," he said. "What they said was that I should have told my players to ease up."

The Texas Education code does not address football in its definition of bullying, the newspaper noted.

Western Hills coach John Naylor said he disagreed with the allegation his team was bullied.

"I think the game was handled just fine," Naylor said. "They [Aledo] are No. 1 for a reason. We just ran into a buzz saw. They're good sports and they don't talk at all. They get after it, and that's the way football is supposed to be played in Texas."
