Birdville 50, Arlington Heights 13
Birdville scores on 6 of 7 first half possessions to sting the Yellow Jackets, 50-13.
Joshua 48, South Hills 38
Scorpions quarterback Anthony Blake threw for 266 yards and three TD passes, but his efforts were not enough as South Hills fell to Joshua, 48-38.
Dallas Lincoln 20, Dunbar 14
A great defensive effort wasn’t enough to stop a late touchdown run by Dallas Lincoln as the Dunbar Wildcats fell, 20-14.
White Settlement Brewer 35, Trimble Tech 6
White Settlement Brewer dominated both sides of the ball, limiting the Bulldogs to 130 yards of total offense.
Arlington Sam Houston 32, O.D. Wyatt 30
Three fourth quarter TD’s gives the battle of the Criss brothers to Anthony and Arlington Sam Houston, 32-30.

There are four games on the schedule for Thursday night.
Saginaw Chisholm Trail (1-0) vs. South Hills (0-1) at Clark Stadium, 7:00 p.m.
Chisholm Trail is in its first year of existence and has jumped right in to varsity sports, posting a 46-0 win over Carrollton Creekview. This week, they will be tested by a South Hills team that has the tools to make some noise in District 7-4A. Anthony Blake will be called upon to repeat his stellar performance last week, where he threw for 266 yards and three touchdowns. Blake and Trenton Rawson will also carry the load on the ground. The Scorpions will need a better performance from the defense, as they allowed over 500 yards in total offense to a Joshua team that hadn’t won a game in two years.
Granbury (0-1) vs. North Side (0-1) at Farrington Field, 7:00 p.m.
Granbury dropped their opener to Wichita Falls, 24-10 last week, while North Side was nearly shut out by Lake Worth. This game looks to be a ground game as neither team has shown a tendency to throw the ball.
Eastern Hills (0-1) vs. Dallas Wilson (0-1) at Franklin Stadium, 7:00 p.m.
Eastern Hills lost to a tough Bishop Dunne team last week while Wilson fell to Kimball, 35-21. The Highlanders had trouble moving the ball and will need to find an offensive rhythm, but their defense will need to be ready to face a Wilson team that had some success throwing the ball last week.
Polytechnic (0-1) vs. Dallas Pinkston (1-0) at Kincaide Stadium, 7:00 p.m.
Poly was run over last week against Venus and things don’t look any easier this week, as they face a Dallas Pinkston team that basically beat Carter-Riverside with their defense. The Vikings scored one offensive touchdown, while their defense tallied the other five scores. Poly needs to establish the run early and avoid mistakes against an opportunistic defense.
