Keep up with the action all season long: 2014 Frisco High School Football Schedules and Results
The opening week of District 9-5A couldn’t have gotten off to a better start as three Frisco ISD schools remained undefeated, with four bunched together atop the district standings.
W Frisco Heritage (3-0, 1-0) VS. The Colony (2-1, 0-1)—27-20
The Frisco Heritage Coyotes appeared to be in the midst of starting off District 9-5A play on the wrong foot. Trailing 13-10 heading into the fourth quarter against The Colony last week, the Coyotes offense had to leave its comfort zone and switch gears to the passing game to adjust to the Cougars’ smothering run defense.
The idea went off without a hitch as QB Malik Walker (17/26, 248 yds, 2 TDs, 1 INT) found WR Chris Baez (5/138 yds, 2 TDs) for two quick fourth quarter scores. The last of which, a 60-yard strike, sealed the win and sent Heritage to 3-0 on the year, and in a four-way tie for first place in the district (it’s never too soon to talk about district rankings).
W Frisco Lone Star (3-0, 1-0) VS. Frisco Wakeland (2-1, 0-1)—21-13
The Lone Star Rangers passed what was their biggest test of the season—taking down a sound 5A opponent—and they managed the upset despite not having their crispest game offensively.
Despite two first-half interceptions tossed by QB Jason Shelley (13/23, 143 yds passing, 2 TDs, 3 INTs), it appeared the Rangers were on their way to a blowout of the previously unbeaten Wakeland squad, as they were up 21-0 at halftime.
But the Wolverines had other plans, as an 18-yard TD run by Brent Altieri (166 yds, TD) made it a two-possession game in the third quarter and a 24-yard TD grab by Justice Williams (7/70 yds, TD) brought the Wolverines within eight points with just under twelve minutes left in the fourth quarter.
However, the Wolverines offense was unable to find the end zone in their final two possessions, as the Rangers moved into a tie for district supremacy with the Heritage Coyotes, Frisco Raccoons and Liberty RedHawks.
W Frisco High (2-1, 1-0) VS. Little Elm (0-3, 0-1)—38-10
After coming up just short in the previous week against Waxahachie, the Frisco High Raccoons recovered to put the hurt on the Little Elm Lobos. After sputtering out of the gates in the first quarter, the Raccoons’ Wing-T hit on all cylinders in the middle quarters, as they put 31 unanswered points in the second and third quarters, to hold a commanding 31-7 lead heading into the fourth quarter.
Once again, RB Paul Terry (210 yds, 3 TDs) led the show, with Idress Ali (134 yds, TD) having a huge night as well. Dayton Bush even joined in the running fun, as he toted the rock just once, but found the endzone on a 44-yard run. And how about that ‘Coons defense? They limited the Lobos to just 133 total yards of offense, while forcing 5 punts.
W Frisco Liberty (2-1, 1-0) @ Frisco Independence (1-2, 0-1)—52-0
Frisco Independence, fresh off their team’s first win in school history, received a taste of the harsh reality of District 9-5A last weekend. The Liberty RedHawks ran rampant on an under-manned Knights defense that surrendered 411 total yards, and had their way on defense, as they forced six turnovers.
RedHawks’ RBs Reggie Hubbard (142 yds, 3 TDs), Elliott Ghattas (70 yds) and Udgam Goyal (42 yds, TD) led the offense. OLB Jared Carmona joined the TD party after he returned a third quarter interception 60-yards for a pick-6.
Independence QB Kyle Saddler had a rough night, tossing as many interceptions as completions, with five. Brandon Williams led the Knights’ offense with 49 yards rushing on 18 carries.
W Frisco Legacy Christian (2-0) @ Colleyville Christian Academy (1-1)—37-14
With TAPPS 2-II getting underway in just a little over a week, the Legacy Christian Eagles looked quite sharp in their blowout win over Colleyville Christian. In similar fashion to their Week 1 win, the Eagles focused mainly on their ground game—and why not? It’s been quite successful.
Chase Eisenmann rushed for 162 yards on 24 carries, while Ryan Davis ended up just shy of the century mark, with 98 yards and two scores. Chase Moake managed just 37 yards, but was gold in the red zone as he crossed the pylons for a team-leading three TDs.
