high school football roundup

A quick look at the top local area h/s football matchups:

*Keller (3-4) at Carroll (7-0) – the #1 team in the nation should have this put away before halftime (5 of Carroll’s last 24 games have been televised either regionally or nationally)
*Highland Park (7-0) at Wylie (6-1) – would be a big upset to see Wylie pull off a win
*Woodrow Wilson (7-0) at Hillcrest (5-2) – could be closer than some may think
*Trinity (7-0) at Irving (4-3) – should be another run away for the Trojans
*Hebron (7-0) at Frisco (5-2) – Hebron wins easy here

In action last night…
Undefeated SGP took on undefeated MacArthur in Irving as both teams put on quite a defensive show. Three turnovers doomed SGP who eventually lost 3-0. Worth noting are the 3 missed field goals by SGP, one a 20 yarder that was blocked. Lots of missed chances there.

Newman Smith lost another close game, this time to Richardson Pearce. NS lead or was tied for the lead throughout until Pearce RB Zach Plinario scored with 3:03 left in the game to put Pearce up for good 30-23. Smith QB Adam Jones threw for 280 yds and 2 TDs.
