Wichita Falls at Lake Dallas

When: 7 p.m.

Where: Falcon Stadium

Records: Wichita Falls (4-3, 3-1), Lake Dallas (4-3, 1-3)

What’s on the line: After playing arguably the three best teams in District 5-4A, Lake Dallas is in decent shape in regard to making the playoffs. However, this game essentially is for a playoff spot, as Wichita Falls still has to play Wichita Falls Rider and Guyer while Lake Dallas finishes against Azle and Fort Worth Brewer. Iowa pledge Josh Jackson could make his return from a broken foot for the Falcons.

Frisco Lone Star at Argyle

When: 7:30 p.m.

Where: Eagle Stadium

Records: Frisco Lone Star (5-3, 0-2), Argyle (7-0, 1-0)

What’s on the line: After jumping out to a 5-0 start, Frisco Lone Star has dropped three straight to Sanger, Aubrey and Celina and now must deal with the beast that is No. 2 Argyle. The Eagles are looking to cruise to a week 10 matchup against Celina for the district championship, as they have outscored their opponents this season by an average of nearly 43 points per game.

Aubrey at Celina

When: 7:30 p.m.

Where: Bobcat Stadium

Records: Aubrey (2-5, 1-0), Celina (8-0, 1-0)

What’s on the line: Aubrey could put a major kink in the District 10-3A standings if the Chaparrals can find a way to pull off an upset against Celina. The Chaps are coming off a bye week after they defeated Frisco Lone Star in their district opener, a game that could end up securing Aubrey a spot in the postseason. If Aubrey can win, it should put the Chaps in the playoffs. Celina enters tonight’s contest with an undefeated record.

Krum at Sanger

When: 7:30 p.m.

Where: Indian Stadium

Records: Krum (3-5, 1-1), Sanger (4-3, 0-1)

What’s on the line: This is a huge game for both schools, as the playoff race is getting considerably tighter. Sanger is coming off a loss to Gainesville and needs to pick up a victory to stay in playoff contention. Krum struggled last week against Decatur and will look to rebound from that contest against the Indians. These schools are separated by less than 12 miles, and the district standings are about that close.

Pilot Point at Whitesboro

When: 7:30 p.m.

Where: Bearcat Stadium

Records: Pilot Point (5-2, 3-0), Whitesboro (6-1, 3-0)

What’s on the line: Pilot Point stayed unbeaten in District 5-2A Division I with its 50-2 throttling of Paradise last week and now visits Whitesboro, which also is undefeated in the district. Whitesboro took down Bowie 43-7 last week but led only 14-7 at halftime. Pilot Point will look to duplicate its 35-0 start against Paradise in an attempt to slow down a Whitesboro rushing attack that averaged more than 10 yards per carry last week.

Boyd at Ponder

When: 7:30 p.m.

Where: Ponder Field

Records: Boyd (2-5, 2-1), Ponder (2-6, 0-4)

What’s on the line: The Ponder Lions still are searching for their first District 5-2A Division I victory after their 27-13 loss to Callisburg, while the Boyd Yellowjackets sport a 2-1 district record despite the rough 0-4 nondistrict mark. The Lions won the turnover battle against Callisburg but couldn’t limit the Wildcat ground game. Ponder’s rushing game was productive with 221 yards, but it was ineffective through the air, completing just one pass for three yards.

Addison Trinity Christian at Liberty Christian

When: 7:30 p.m.

Where: Warrior Stadium

Records: Addison Trinity Christian (5-2, 1-2), Liberty Christian (5-2, 2-1)

What’s on the line: Liberty Christian coach Greg Price describes the final three games of his regular-season schedule as “the gauntlet,” and it begins tonight when the Warriors host potent Addison Trinity Christian. The Trojans have dropped close games to arguably the two best teams in the district, including a one-point loss to Fort Worth Nolan.
