Game notes: The past nine years Paschal and Weatherford have butted heads the Roos have come out on top, so one would be tempted to believe Saturday will represent the best opportunity for WHS to break the streak it is currently experiencing. Like the Kangaroos, Paschal is looking for its first district win of the season, and with venue advantage, at least on one of its home fields (and on Homecoming Night, to boot), may consider the Roos its best chance to reap a ‘W.’ 

Paschal has three non-district wins, and although those victories were against teams with a current  combined mark of 2-16, the Panthers offensive production has been legitimately prolific (38 points per contest). Arlington Martin held Paschal’s run game to less than 55 yards last week, but the Fort Worth school compensated with more than 250 yards passing (mostly Dylan Thomas to Darrell James, 7-147). Thomas is deft at moving around the pocket, and is also Paschal’s leading rusher on the year, averaging just a scoach under 100 yards per contest.

Weatherford will have the opportunity to break away from its three points per district game average this week. And it likely will do so against the Panther defenders, especially after the frustrating offensive outing last week against Arlington High yielded less than its average output.
