Aledo cages Cougars in Thursday match, Southwest up next
Aledo kept its punting team on the sidelines for the entire game on Thursday, as the Bearcats’ offense churned up nearly 500 yards against Western Hills in a District 7-4A game at Farrington Field.
The Bearcat offensive starters inflicted early damage on the Cougar defenders, and the Aledo subs saw considerable playing time in a mop-up role en route to a 56-0 drubbing of the Fort Worth team.
A pair of Pate Davis-to-Taco Anderson aerials got the 8-touchdown night started for Aledo. In their first series, Davis found Anderson for a 60-yard scoring toss, with the encore coming on the next series, this time a 51-yard touchdown pass.
Running back Jess Anders averaged 19 yards per touch on the night, finishing up with more than 200 yards and three touchdowns.
Back-up quarterback Luke Bishop spelled Davis later in the match, taking a good number of snaps in the second half, enough to finish 9 of 11 passing for 88 yards, one a 15-yard scoring strike to wideout Quanel Williams.
Improving to a district mark of 4-0 (6-1 overall), Aledo will use its ‘long week’ to prepare for Fort Worth Southwest, arguably the best of the Fort Worth schools. The Bearcats will host the Raiders on Friday, with the game time set for 7:30 p.m.
Bulldogs fall to Rice in district tilt
With quarterbacking duties relegated to backup Michael Rogers after an early exit by starter Bradley Bottoms, Millsap moved the ball but had trouble finding the end zone. An early surge by the Rice offense put the Bulldogs in a hole they could not climb out of as Rice won the District 6-2A match, 42-9.
A Rogers-to-King scoring toss of 75 yards provided the top highlight for Millsap fans. Rogers finished with five completions for 146 yards. Bottoms had a connection with Rogers for 16 yards before leaving the game.
Timothy Newberry led the Bulldog defense with 11 tackles and Kristian Martinez wrapped up Rice runners eight times on the night.
Millsap returns home on Friday looking to put up a ‘W’ against district-winless Dallas Life Oak Cliff. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. at Bulldog Stadium.
