Argyle kept their perfect record Friday with another impressive win. Here is how southern Denton County high schools fared on the gridiron.
Argyle 45, Kennedale 7
Argyle, the No. 4 team in Class 3A according to the Associated Press, pounded Kennedale with 462 yards of offense while limiting the vaunted Kennedale rushing attack to 129 yards. Coming into the game, Kennedale (1-3) had amassed 1,145 rushing yards in its first three games.
Nick Ralston led Argyle with 122 yards rushing on just 16 carries, but teammate Connor Wilson — who carried the ball just three times for 17 yards — scored two of the Eagles’ four rushing touchdowns. He also caught three passes for 45 yards and a score. Do-everything standout and Texas Tech commit Ian Sadler rushed for 54 yards, caught one ball for another 16 and completed all seven of his passes for 70 yards. Argyle led 31-7 at halftime and is now 4-0 heading into next Friday’s game at Wilmer-Hutchins.
Plano East 21, Marcus 13
Lionel Wills scored on a 51-yard breakaway run with 1:02 left in regulation to seal a 21-13 win over Marcus and keep the Panthers (4-0) undefeated. Marcus (1-3) had narrowed the Plano East lead to one point with 1:17 left in the game but failed on a two-point conversion that could have given the Marauders a one-point lead.
Wills, who rushed for 94 yards on eight carries, scored on the first play of Plano East’s next possession. Marcus has now lost three-straight since winning its season opener. The Marauders were led on offense by Alex Albright, who carried the ball 23 times for 104 yards. Mark Demery added 82 yards on 24 carries.
Liberty Christian 40, Arlington Grace Prep 0
The Warriors improved to 3-1 on Friday with a 40-0 nondistrict win over Arlington Grace Prep.

Arlington Grace Prep was held to 70 yards through the air and was outgained 385-218.
Liberty Christian did most of its damage in the second half, expanding on a 14-0 halftime lead with 26-unanswered points. Quarterback Colby Moore completed 11 of 19 passes for 208 yards and two scores.

Lewisville evened its record at 2-2 with a 14-10 win over Arlington on Friday. The Farmers trailed 10-7 at halftime and was outgained on the night 317-123, but capitalized on two Arlington fumbles and got the decisive score with 5:39 remaining when Donte McGee scored from three yards out.
McGee led all rushers with 82 yards on 23 carries and one score.
