Comments () A Text Size

Argyle at Wilmer-Hutchins

When: 7:30 p.m.

Where: Eagle Stadium

Records: Argyle (4-0), Wilmer-Hutchins (2-2)

What’s on the line: Argyle, No. 4 in The Associated Press Class 3A poll, wasted little time jumping out to a 28-0 lead against a solid Kennedale team that defeated Wilmer-Hutchins the previous week. Argyle is just trying to keep momentum while working for a postseason berth while playing several different offensive players in key situations.

Plano Prestonwood at Liberty Christian

When: 7:30 p.m.

Where: Bowles Stadium

Records: Plano Prestonwood (3-1), Liberty Christian (3-1)

What’s on the line: These teams kick off district play as two of the favorites to take the district title. Liberty will be looking to avenge a 41-24 loss to Prestonwood a year ago and has been winning its games in heart-pounding fashion. Each team’s only loss is to a Class 3A powerhouse, as Liberty fell to Celina and Prestonwood was beaten by Gilmer.

Krum at Wichita Falls Hirschi

When: 7 p.m.

Records: Krum (2-2), Hirschi (3-1)

Where: Memorial Stadium

What’s on the line: Krum is coming off a lopsided win against Boyd and will face its first Class 3A team of the season. Hirschi started the season with three straight wins, but the Huskies suffered their first loss last week against Decatur. Tonight’s game in Wichita Falls could be a good gauge of what a young Krum team could do in District 9-3A play this season.

Sanger at Aubrey

When: 7:30 p.m.

Where: Chaparral Stadium

Records: Sanger (2-2), Aubrey (1-3)

What’s on the line: These teams enter tonight’s game carrying different levels of momentum. Sanger is coming off back-to-back wins and is looking to stretch its winning streak to three games. The Indians face an Aubrey team coming off back-to-back losses. Aubrey will be seeking to get things going in the right direction against its former district rival.

Pilot Point at Callisburg

When: 7:30 p.m.

Where: Wildcat Stadium

Records: Pilot Point (2-2), Callisburg (4-0)

What’s on the line: The Pilot Point Bearcats came alive in the fourth quarter of their 28-21 win over rival Aubrey, with junior quarterback Travis Garrett responsible for three of the four touchdowns and 149 yards rushing yards. Standing in the way of Pilot Point’s attempt to get above .500 is a heavy rushing attack by the undefeated Wildcats.

Whitesboro at Ponder

When: 7:30 p.m.

Where: Ponder Field

Records: Whitesboro (3-1), Ponder (2-2)

What’s on the line: The Ponder Lions got back to .500 with their 42-24 win over Nocona, capitalizing on turnovers for a 20-0 start. However, the Lions also were susceptible to turnovers and will need to avoid falling victim to another sloppy game if they are going to derail the Bearcats’ running game.
