Bullard Panthers (1-5) at Wills Point Tigers (3-3)
7:30 p.m. Friday at Ken Autry Davis Field in Wills Point
What To Watch For — This is the District 7-4A-II opener for both of these clubs...Bullard comes in having lost its last four games, while Wills Point has won its last two outings...The Panthers should benefit from having played a tough non-district schedule that included Pine Tree, Gilmer and Chapel Hill...The Tigers' three victories have come against teams that are a combined 4-12...Bullard will have to stop the run to have a decent chance at victory...The Tigers average 213 rushing yards per game...Jaquez Thompson (Jr., 6'-4”, 185 lb.) is the Tigers' leading rusher (72-392)...A close game is expected.
Troup Tigers (1-4, 0-2) at Quitman Bulldogs (0-5, 0-2)
7:30 p.m. Friday at Bud Moody Stadium in Quitman
What To Watch For — Both teams have had a tough go of it this year...The Bulldogs are averaging just 15 points a game...Troup has averaged scoring 30 points a game...Tigers should cruise to their first district win on Friday.
Alto Yellowjackets (5-0) at Big Sandy Wildcats (1-4, 0-0)
7:30 p.m. Friday at Wildcat Stadium in Big Sandy
What To Watch For — Alto has been unstoppable this season and that doesn't look to change on Friday...Defensively, the Wildcats have struggled and have allowed 43.4 points per game while playing teams much less talented that the Mean Sting...Big Sandy's lone win came in Week 2 when the Wildcats beat Alba-Golden, 60-34...Alto is 3-0 all-time against the Wildcats.
Brook Hill Guard (4-1) vs. Dallas Christian Chargers (5-0)
7:30 p.m. Friday at Herrington Stadium in Bullard
What To Watch For — The Charger defense is a stout one; having given up only 40 points this season...
BH and DC both have played Pope John Paul II...The Chargers downed the Cardinals by 11 points, while BH lost to Pope John Paul II by 32 points...DC is expected to show a balanced attack, that favors the run slightly...The Chargers have scored 14 rushing TDs, compared to 11 receiving TDs...The Guard defense has shutout its last two foes (Flower Mound Coram Deo and Willow Park Trinity Christian)...BH's Garrett Esposito (QB) to Seth Moss (WR) connection has paid dividends on more than one occasion this fall...The Chargers always seem like a huge hurdle for the Guard to get over...Game will serve as the league opener for both units.
