Flower Mound 17, Allen 63
In a game between the two-time defending state champions and a team without a district win, much was expected to go against Flower Mound as they took on the Allen Eagles.
Surprisingly, the Jaguars kept pace for a half, only trailing by 18 until Allen’s depth and talent overwhelmed Flower Mound, with the Eagles bursting for 28 points in the third quarter.
Allen was able to get off to a quick start after Flower Mound went for it on fourth down at their own 42. Texas A&M commit and superstar quarterback Kyler Murray responded with a quick laser to Lee Morris, and a QB keeper to give the Eagles a quick 7-0 lead. Flower Mound responded with a solid drive of their own, getting help from a pass interference call.
The drive stalled, however, and resulted in a Richard Kelly 32-yard field goal, trimming
the lead to 7-3. The potent Eagle offense struck right back with a quick David Feliciano 61-yard touchdown run on the first play of the drive. Flower Mound inserted mobile quarterback Hayden Houser into the game on the next drive, but couldn’t get the offense going, giving the Eagles the ball back quickly. Once again, Feliciano found paydirt and gave Allen a 21-3 lead.
Flower Mound took a big risk in their next drive, going for it on fourth down at their own 33, yet they capitalized on a 66-yard Logan Davis run, and he would take it in the end zone himself on the next play, cutting the lead to 21-10.
On the next drive, the Flower Mound defense forced an Eagle punt. The offense for the Jaguars stalled once again, and a double-reverse pass fell incomplete, turning the ball over on downs.
The Eagles fired back, with a quick strike from Murray to Jaylen Guyton, increasing the lead to 28-10. Allen got the ball back with a few seconds left in the half, but a Murray Hail Mary pass was picked off in the end zone by Clayton Johnson.
Flower Mound started off the second half with a surprise onside kick, which they were able to recover. However, on the first play, Davis flipped the ball to back Ryan Dailey, who took a big hit and lost the football, turning it over. Murray threw a bullet to Feliciano, resulting in
another touchdown, pushing the score to 35-10.
The Jaguars responded with a throw-on-the-run from Davis to Johnson for a 33-yard touchdown. The momentum shifted quickly, with a quick screen pass to Jaylen Guyton went for 75 yards, and another Eagle touchdown.
The game turned when Flower Mound couldn’t get out of its own way. The Eagles scored two more touchdowns, taking a commanding 56-17 lead going into the final period.
Flower Mound takes a bye week next Friday..
