O.D. Wyatt 44, Dunbar 37

Deon Daniels caught a 60-yard TD pass from Ladell Marshall with 2:44 remaining to give Wyatt the win. Both teams had stellar performances from a number of players. For the Chaparrals, Marshall rushed for 201 yards and two touchdowns, threw for one and was on the receiving end of another. Daniels did the same thing, throwing for a score, rushing for one and catching one. For Dunbar, Dan Harris threw two touchdown passes to Stepfawn Hughes.

Southwest 42, Everman 21
Raider’s receiver Robbie Rhodes was limited to two catches, but he turned both into points as Southwest topped Everman 42-21. Rhodes and Wesley Harris hooked up for a 45-yard TD in the first quarter, and for a 85-yard scoring strike in the second. Rhodes also carried the ball once and turned that into a 40-yard touchdown run. Rhodes finished the game with three touches for 170 yards and three touchdowns. Turnovers still plagued the Raiders in the first half, but the defense was able to hold the Bulldogs to 21 points and allowed only 277 total yards.
Arlington Heights 41, Paschal 9
The Arlington Heights defense forced three turnovers, including an interception returned for a score, and limited the Panthers to 24 yards rushing in a 41-9 win. It was Paschal who took the early 3-0 lead on a Christian Vasquez 22-yard field goal, but the Yellow Jackets scored the next three touchdowns to take control of the game. Duke Dozier threw two touchdown passes and Vincent Berrones threw for one and rushed for another. Kameron Hill, Daveon Doggett, Sammy Webb and Brennan Bibbs also found the end zone for Heights. For Paschal, Gibson Duwe threw for 154 yards and a touchdown to Ben Noel, who finished with 80 receiving yards.
Trimble Tech 23, Dallas White 22
A Ray Franklin 22-yard field goal late in the fourth proved to be enough as Trimble Tech beat Dallas White, 23-22. The Longhorns jumped out to a 14-0 lead, but Trimble Tech tied it at 14 at the half with a Terrence Farris 27-yard touchdown catch from Jerrick McClain and a Daylon Tarkington 15-yard TD run. White went up by 8 in the third but the Bulldogs answered back with a McClain to Jeffery Maldonado 39-yard pass. However, the two point conversion failed, leaving Tech down by two and setting up Franklin for the game winner. McClain completed 11 of 13 passes for 150 yards and two scores, while Tarkington added 114 yards on the ground and one touchdown.
All Saints 52, Carter-Riverside 6
Fort Worth All Saints scored on four straight possessions in the second quarter to pad their lead en route to a 52-6 win over Carter-Riverside. The Saints rolled up 552 total yards, while their defense held the Eagles to 152 yards. Carter-Riverside avoided the shutout with a Vincent Luna 3-yard run in the fourth.
North Dallas 31, Diamond Hill-Jarvis 0
North Dallas continued their dominance against Diamond Hill-Jarvis with a 31-0 win. The Eagles had some success moving the ball on the ground, but couldn’t find the end zone. Ismael Penaloza paced the Eagles with 62 yards on seven carries.
White Settlement Brewer 54, Western Hills 27
White Settlement Brewer knew what they were getting when facing Western Hills: a steady diet of Aaron Stevenson. And even though Stevenson gained 153 yards and scored twice, it was the total lack of a passing attack that doomed the Cougars. Western Hills only attempted three passes and completed none. This allowed the Bears to stack the line and try to contain the run. This “bend, don’t break” approach netted 326 rushing yards for Western Hills, but only 27 points. On the other side of the ball, Brewer was more balanced, scoring five rushing and three passing touchdowns, including a 27 point outburst in the second quarter.
