Guyer’s ground game assured them an easy victory Friday night while Argyle closed out its nondistrict schedule with another lopsided win. Here is how southern Denton County high schools fared on the gridiron.
Guyer 66, Denton 7
Guyer improved to 2-0 in District 5-4A with its drubbing of crosstown rival Denton on Friday. QB Jerrod Heard carried the ball 10 times for 162 yards and junior Anthony Taylor added 122 yards and a score on 11 carries as the Wildcats amassed 415 yards on the ground.
Denton trailed 21-7 after the first 12 minutes but was outscored 45-0 the rest of the way. Guyer (3-2 overall) scored six times on the ground and three times through the air.
Argyle 66, Dallas Madison 7
In one of the more lopsided games of the weekend, Argyle (6-0) outgained Dallas Madison 498-44 on Friday in a 66-7 blowout win. The Eagles defense forced 11 punts as Madison gained all its yardage on the ground. Cooper Rodgers and Brandon Boyzuick threw two touchdowns a piece as both eclipsed 100 yards passing. All four passing scores went to Texas Tech commit Ian Sadler.
Sadler finished with five receptions for 98 yards. Not to be outdone, Nick Ralston carried the ball 10 times for 119 yards and four touchdowns. Argyle — who heads into a bye week before opening District 10-3A play on Oct. 17 at Carrollton Ranchview — led 52-0 by halftime.
Plano 17, Marcus 3 (Thursday)
Marcus wrapped up nondistrict with its fourth-straight loss on a special Thursday night game. Neither team really lit it up offensively (366 combined yards on offense), but Plano took a three-point halftime lead and extended it with a 10-0 run in the second half. Quarterback Brooks Panhans put the game out of reach with 1:54 left in the game when he rushed in from two yards out. Kaden Smith led Marcus with six catches for 89 yards and no touchdowns. The Marauders (1-4) host Denton Ryan on Oct. 11 in the District 5-5A opener.
Bye Week: Flower Mound, Liberty Christian, Lewisville, Coram Deo Academy
