Game notes: After the loss to Arlington Martin put a damper on its district title aspirations,  Arlington could still be in the hunt if they can knock off Bowie later in the schedule, while hoping the Bowie Vols can sneak up on Martin. Year-in, year-out, its a common triangle for the three Arlington schools. 

The Colts tout perhaps the district's most lethal passing combination in Connor Huffman to Dontha Robinson (420 yds, 5 TDs). Arlington balances its passing game well, with the tandem punch of running backs Brandon Washington (380 yds) and Raymond Sheard (340 yds).

Weatherford's misplaced generosity dug a pit early in the Martin game, against a team they could ill afford to help out with offensive and special teams miscues.

Finally near the end of a brutal three-game stretch, the upset-minded Roos are still looking for the flawless effort coupled with a handy  opponent lapse to kick off a potential run heading into a slate featuring significantly weaker opposition.

A  more frequent WHS quarterbacks to Tony Rodriguez passing combination looks to be the best air weapon for the Roos,  and getting a consistent ground game going should net even more big-play opportunities for T-Rod.
