FRISCO — Junior wide receiver Ian Sadler had a historic game for the Argyle Eagles on Friday night.
Sadler became the first player in school history to record rushing, passing, receiving and return touchdowns in the same game as the Eagles defeated Frisco Lone Star 69-0 in District 10-3A action.
The victory was the Eagles’ (7-1, 2-0) second straight shutout and seventh straight victory.
Sadler had a huge game last week, netting 255 total yards and three touchdowns.
Against Lone Star (6-3, 1-2) Sadler jump started the scoring for the Eagles with a 54-yard touchdown pass to Dalton Ledford. Sadler took Brandon Boyzuick’s handoff, sprinted left and threw downfield to Ledford to give Argyle a 7-0 lead.
By the end of the first quarter Argyle had a 35-0 lead. Sadler also had a 2-yard touchdown run and a 20-yard touchdown catch. He finished the game with 101 yards receiving on five catches.
In the third quarter, with the game well in hand, Sadler returned a punt 80 yards for a touchdown to complete his auspicious night.
Argyle benefited from two first-quarter turnovers by Lone Star, plus recovered an onside kick after going up 21-0. Michael McConnell recovered the onside kick for the Eagles, while Dean Eddy recovered a Lone Star fumble that led to Boyzuick’s touchdown pass to Ledford, which helped Argyle to a 28-0 lead. Ledford had one catch this season entering the game. He made two against Lone Star, both for touchdowns.
Boyzuick went 15-of-19 passing for 211 yards and three touchdowns, helping him reach more than 1,000 yards passing for the season. Running back Nick Ralston, who needed 161 yards to reach 1,000 for the season, nearly got there. He rushed for 153 yards and two touchdowns.
Like last week, Argyle’s defense dominated the contest. It allowed only 5 yards to Lone Star in the first quarter, 44 yards by halftime and only 148 yards for the game. It took the Rangers more than 19 minutes to run a play in Argyle territory and only came close to scoring once, late in the game against Argyle’s reserves. That drive, however, ended with a failed fourth-down attempt at the Eagles’ 14.
Argyle plays host to Aubrey next Friday night, looking to keep its quest for a fifth straight district title alive.
