The Weatherford Kangaroos took care of business Thursday night, maintaining a perfect district record at 3-0.
Weatherford answered a Paschal score early, when Ryan Clark's completion to Melvin Polk set up a 5-yard score for Brayden Bork, and the point after kick tied things up at 7-7 with about five minutes left in the first.
Paschal scored again but the Roos punched right back, this time on a 9-yard carry by Clark. The kick after gave Weatherford the 14-13 advantage heading into the second.
The teams managed to tie it up at 20-all, but the Roos offense exploded in the second and third quarters, putting up 34 points while the defense held the Panthers to a mere 7.
Wasting little time, Weatherford opened up the fourth putting more points on the board on a pass from CJ Thornton to Polk, which put the Roos up 48-20.
A few of minutes later, Clark returned to the field, rumbling 40 yards into the end zone to make it 54-20.
With about eight minutes left, Paschal found a little life, and Chris Gee's 5-yard carry cut the deficit to 28, where it remained the rest of the way.
The Roos improve to 4-2 overall and face Boswell Friday night on the road.
Brock rallies back against Whitesboro
The Eagles had a rough first half against Whitesboro, but despite an interception and fumble that led to two Bearcat scores, followed by a missed field goal, the Eagles went into halftime with a 21-21 tie.

The Eagles forced a stop of Whitesboro, and drove the ball down into Bearcat territory, where Moody and Potts connected again, putting Brock up 34-21 to begin the fourth.
A few minutes later, the Eagles found themselves on the receiving end of a fumble, taking full advantage of the opportunity when Jake Lindberg punched it in from a yard out for a 41-21 lead, which held strong the rest of the night.
