Lake Dallas at Fort Worth Brewer

When: 7 p.m.

Where: Brewer Bear Stadium

Records: Lake Dallas (4-4, 1-4), Fort Worth Brewer (3-5, 0-5)

What’s on the line: Lake Dallas is desperate to snap a four-game skid after it started 4-0. Lake Dallas is playing for pride, as hopes of a postseason berth are gone. It will have a shot at getting back in the win column against a Fort Worth Brewer team that hasn’t won a district game and is on a five-game skid. Iowa pledge Josh Jackson could return for Lake Dallas after missing three games with a foot injury.

Argyle at Aubrey

When: 7:30 p.m.

Where: Chaparral Stadium

Records: Argyle (8-0, 2-0), Aubrey (2-6, 1-1)

What’s on the line: The Argyle Eagles must avoid looking past Aubrey in advance of a showdown next week against Celina that likely will decide the District 10-3A championship. Aubrey’s Cole Cannon has taken over at quarterback for the Chaparrals and poses a solid running and passing threat, but Argyle’s defense will be a different animal for Aubrey. The Eagles have allowed an average of eight points per game in their two district wins.

Sanger at Bridgeport

When: 7:30 p.m.

Where: Bull Memorial Stadium

Records: Sanger (5-3, 1-1), Bridgeport (0-8, 0-2)

What’s on the line: This shouldn’t be a close contest, considering the way the teams have been playing. Sanger can empathize with Bridgeport after the Indians failed to win a game in 2012. Behind running back Tre’von Jackson, Sanger has improved tremendously. Derek Shelby has emerged and given Sanger another threat in the backfield. Sanger would clinch a playoff berth with a win.

Gainesville at Krum

When: 7:30 p.m.

Where: Bobcat Stadium

Records: Gainesville (7-0, 2-0), Krum (3-6, 1-2)

What’s on the line: A year after Gainesville and Krum played for the District 9-3A title, Krum will be looking to hand the Leopards their first loss of the season. For the Bobcats to pull off the upset, Krum will need to stop Leopard running back Adam Berryman. Krum allowed 241 rushing yards in a 35-0 loss to Sanger last week. The Bobcats will look to get their rushing attack going again after picking up only 39 yards on 35 carries against Sanger.

Bowie at Pilot Point

When: 7:30 p.m.

Where: Massey Stadium

Records: Bowie (3-5, 1-3), Pilot Point (6-3, 4-1)

What’s on the line: In a showdown of District 5-2A Division I unbeatens, Pilot Point ended up on the wrong side of a 37-10 decision against Whitesboro last week in which it surrendered more than 300 yards on the ground and didn’t score a touchdown until the fourth quarter. The Bearcats will look to rerack against the Bowie Jackrabbits to secure a playoff seed in their final regular-season game.

Liberty Christian at Fort Worth Nolan

When: 7:30 p.m.

Where: Doskocil Stadium

Records: Liberty Christian (6-2, 3-1), Fort Worth Nolan (5-3, 3-1)

What’s on the line: The Liberty Warriors have revenge on their minds as they face a Fort Worth Nolan team that has kept them off the scoreboard in their previous two meetings. The winner of the game will get the inside track to the second seed in the district behind unbeaten Plano Prestonwood. Liberty Christian has one of the area’s most versatile, dynamic players in JonAaron Howell.

Calvary at Rockwall Heritage Christian

When: 7:30 p.m.

Where: Hobart Wisdom Field

Records: Calvary (2-5, 1-2), Rockwall Heritage Christian (5-4, 2-1)

What’s on the line: If the Calvary Lions have designs on making the playoffs out of TAPPS Division I District 2, they will need a big road win over the Rockwall Heritage Christian Eagles and one against Dallas Tyler Street Christian in their final game of the season. The Lions are coming off a 68-6 loss to Dallas Covenant.
