Saint Jo
The Saint Jo Panthers rolled over Newcastle at home on Friday night.
It only took one half as Saint Jo won 56-0 due to mercy rule.
The Panthers scored on their second offensive play as Logan Brawner scored on a 33-yard run. Newcastle did not score on its first drive, but did a good job of keeping the ball away from Saint Jo, coverting two first downs.
When the Panthers got the ball back there was less than two minutes to play in the quarter. Saint Jo did not need much time though as Jonathon Diaz scored on a 54-yard run to put the Panthers up 16-0 heading into the second quarter.
The second play of the new quarter saw Brawner score on a short touchdown run to go up 24-0. The defense forced a four-and-out and the offense scored on its first play as Chance Bennett rumbled his way for a 40-yard touchdown run to go up 32-0.
Newcastle fumbled on its next drive and Dylan Brockman recovered the ball. Brawner then completed his first touchdown pass of the season to Tyler Cook from 13 yards out to go up 40-0.
Another drive from the Bobcats ended in a four-and-out. Saint Jo’s first offensive play went for another touchdown as Diaz scored from 11 yards out to make the score 48-0.
On the kickoff, Brockman recovered another fumble to give the Panthers the ball back. Matthew Butler scored on the next play on a 45-yard run to increase the score to 56-0.
Saint Jo next hosts Arlington Texas Leadership Charter Academy at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 23.

Nocona
The Nocona Indians lost at Henrietta on Friday in one-sided fashion.
The Bearcats got out early and never looked back winning 57-6.
Trent Sappington scored the Indians only touchdown in the fourth quarter and led the team with 77 yards rushing, but the offense as a whole struggled.
Nocona had a tough time stopping Henrietta on the ground and containing big passing plays.
It will only get harder as the Indians get ready to host Holliday, the district favorite who only has one loss this season. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 23.

Forestburg
The Forestburg Longhorns lost to Grayson Christian on Friday at Alvord in their final non-district game.
The Falcons easily won against the Longhorns 62-12 early in the third quarter.
One of the few positives to take from the game was the fact Forestburg made it to the second half however briefly.
Jeremiah Perez led the team with 52 yards rushing and scored a touchdown. Braxton Osteen threw for 67 yards and one touchdown that went to Jaden Meek.
Forestburg has had a fraught past three weeks with two games canceled and having to find new opponents with a bye-week in the middle of it.
The Longhorns start district play this week and know it will be tough if they want to repeat as district champions.
Forestburg starts playing at the proverbial district favorite Fannindel, a team that has not lost a game this season. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 23.

The Nocona Lady Indians lost a tough game at Muenster on Tuesday night.
The Lady Hornets won 13-2 after four and half innings due to run-rule, but most of the damage came in one inning for Muenster.
Nocona was coming into the game after a one-sided win against a smaller Saint Jo team, but knew it would have to play well if it wanted a chance to win.
The beginning of the game was competitive as the Lady Indians got on the board first with Skye Kirby driving in a run on a single.
The Lady Hornets loaded the bases up with no outs in the first inning, but Nocona almost got out of the jam unscathed before a passed ball and a single allowed two runs to come in and score. Muenster led 2-1 after the first inning.

Nocona needed to score at least three runs in the fifth inning to prevent the game from ending early due to run-rule.
The Lady Indians leadoff batter A Sutton got on base by drawing a walk. She got moved to second base on a groundout and later went to third base on a passed ball.
Heidi Atteberry then grounded out, but it was enough to get Sutton home for a run.

The Lady Hornets won 31-15, but the Lady Panthers avoided getting run-ruled in a game that was going their way in the beginning.
Saint Jo was ahead 8-2 after the first three innings and was playing well, until its pitchers started having deep troubles finding the strike zone.
Era scored 11 runs in the fourth inning and took a 13-8 lead and the Lady Panthers could not get the game back in control.
Too many walks and hit batters just could not keep the Lady Hornets off the board and scoring great in the final three innings.

The Lady Panthers scored to keep the game going, trailing 13-9 after four innings, 18-12 after five and 21-13 after six.
Era then ended the game with another 10 runs in the seventh inning to make the final score worse than it was for most of it.

The Bowie Lady Rabbits lost a tough game at Holliday on Monday night.
The Lady Eagles won 12-2 after five innings due to run-rule.
Bowie was hoping it could compete well with Holliday coming off a good win against Vernon in its previous game. While the Lady Rabbits lost to the Lady Eagles in the first game, Bowie had avoided getting run-ruled and took that as a positive sign. Unfortunately, that was not avoided on Monday.
After a scoreless first inning, Bowie had gotten on the board first in the second inning. Sadie Britt led off with a double. Two batters later, Victoria Watson drove her in with a single to put the Lady Rabbits up 1-0.
Unfortunately, Holliday answered with nine runs in the same inning scored on six singles, a double, two walks and two fielding errors. Bowie was down 9-1 and could not get back into the game.
The Lady Eagles added two more runs on a two-run home run in the third inning to go up 11-1.
The Lady Rabbit offense answered in the fourth inning with the same two players coming through again.
Britt led off and hit a single.
Two wild pitches allowed her to advance to third base before two batters later, Watson got her home, this time on a sacrifice fly ball to make it 11-2.
Bowie’s defense allowed no runs in the fourth inning and after failing to score on offense in the fifth inning, it needed to do it again to prevent the game from ending early due to run-rule.
Unfortunately, Holliday loaded the bases up with two singles and a hit batter with no outs before a single drove in one run to end the game.
The Lady Eagles won 12-2.
