The Flower Mound Jaguars continue to struggle, dropping their fourth straight game, while Guyer still looks like the team to beat after a lopsided win over Azle. Here is how southern Denton County high schools fared on the gridiron.
Guyer 41, Azle 10
Guyer, the defending Class 4A state champs, started slow then dominated the rest of the way in a 41-10 win over Azle in the District 5-4A opener for both teams. Jerrod Heard (Texas) completed 10-of-13 passes for 191 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions.
Heard also ran for 69 yards and a score. One of his touchdown passes — a 70-yard strike to Alex Honey — was part of a 21-point second quarter to give Guyer a 28-3 halftime lead. The Wildcats are 2-2 overall, 1-0 in district. Guyer will host Denton next Friday at C.H. Collins Athletic Complex.
Argyle 52, Wilmer-Hutchins 12
Argyle continues to roll thanks to a 52-12 win over Wilmer-Hutchins on Friday. Ian Sadler, a Texas Tech commit, scored three times on the night — all rushing — and the Eagles (5-0) built a 38-0 halftime lead en route to another big win. Last week, Argyle beat Kennedale 45-7.
Wilmer-Hutchins turned the ball over six times and gained just 84 yards on offense. Conversely, Argyle has now scored 40 or more points in four of its wins this season and hasn’t allowed more than 12 points against in any one game. Argyle hosts Madison next Friday. Game time is set for 7:30 p.m.
Prestonwood Christian 57, Liberty Christian 37
Liberty Christian and Prestonwood Christian combined for 1,090 yards of offense on Friday, but it was Prestonwood that got the early scores and pulled out a 57-37 win in the district opener for both teams. Liberty Christian (3-2, 0-1) trailed 36-16 heading into the fourth quarter and exploded for 21 points in the final frame. The only problem is Prestonwood scored just as many to thwart any chance for a rally.
Prestonwood’s Ryan Bradberry led all rushers with 226 yards on 20 carries and four touchdowns. The Warriors were led by JonAaron Howell’s 127 rushing yards. Quarterback Colby Moore passed for 263 yards and four touchdowns.
Plano West 41, Flower Mound 6
Flower Mound (1-4) closed out is nondistrict schedule on Friday with its fourth-straight loss. Plano West (4-1) rolled up 479 yards on offense while forcing three interceptions defensively. The Jaguars will enter their bye week before hosting rival Lewisville on Oct. 11.
Flower Mound was led by receiver LaJohn Williams, who caught four balls for 84 yards. Plano West got 141 yards on the ground and two touchdowns from Sontonye Jamabo and another three scores from Robert Colmery.
McKinney Boyd 57, Lewisville 7
Dedrick Scrivens and Mahlieke Boseman combined for 233 rushing yards and between them scored five touchdowns in a 57-7 win over the Farmers. Lewisville (2-3) was outgained 536-163 and had two turnovers. The loss snapped a two-game win streak for the Farmers, who came into the game having not given up more than 22 points in a single game.
Garland Christian Academy 54, Coram Deo Academy 31
Flower Mound Coram Deo was up 31-20 in the third quarter but let it get away late in the game. After winning their first two games, the 2-3 Lions have dropped three straight by double digits.
