Boyd prevailed over Tolar in overtime, 21-14, to bring their season record to 2-1.

The Yellowjackets scored the first two touchdowns in the first and second quarter on five-yard and 25-yard passes from Kody Risenhoover to Koby Miller.

In the second quarter Tolar started to catch up, beginning with a 10-yard touchdown pass from Bryan Morgan to Clayton Deavor. The kick following that touchdown was blocked, but Tolar followed up with another touchdown on a 75-yard punt return by Deavor. The Rattlers tried for two, but the attempt was no good.

A high snap on a Boyd punt ended in a safety with 3:40 left in the fourth quarter, tying the game.

Boyd won in overtime with a 25-yard touchdown pass from Risenhoover to Miller.


The Northwest Texans closed out non-district play by beating rival Byron Nelson 30-14 at Northwest ISD Stadium.

Mavula ran for 51 yards and two scores. He also threw for a touchdown, going 8-for-15 through the air for 97 yards.

A week after rushing for 381 yards, DeMareus Hosey ran for 133 yards. He scored on a 1-yard run early in the second quarter to give the Texans a lead they never relinquished.

Byron Nelson did pull within three early in the fourth, 17-14, before Mavula connected with Quentin Lee for a 30-yard touchdown to give the Texans a cushion.

The Texans will be off next week and will open 6-5A play Sept. 28 against Eaton.


The Bridgeport Bulls suffered a setback at the hands of the Gainesville Leopards 53-28 at Leopard Stadium.

Gainesville opened the scoring at the 8:17 mark in the first quarter with a 3-yard run by Calion Baker and a PAT kick by Ivan Franco.

A couple of minutes later, the Bulls tied it up on a Christian Hand 1-yard run and a Colton Waters kick. That would be the final time in the game that Bridgeport would draw even with the Leopards.

The Baker boys – Calion and Brandon – would figure prominently in the rest of the Gainesville scoring with the exception of a 27-yard field goal.

The remaining Bull scores came on three Jadon Maddux touchdown passes – one to Andrew Horton for 17 yards, another to Michael Cole for 57 yards and a final one to Waters from 17 yards out.

Bridgeport actually outgained the Leopards with 447 yards (169 rushing and 278 passing) to Gainesville’s 415 total yards (325 rushing and 90 passing).

Maddux went 23-for-39 with two interceptions. Hand was the leading rusher for Bridgeport with 21 carries for 100 yards.

Bridgeport will try to break into the win column when they travel next week to Sanger.
