Argyle 45, Kennedale 7
KENNEDALE – Argyle (4-0) rolled up 462 yards of offense in a dominating 45-7 win over Kennedale (1-3) on Friday night at Wildcat Stadium. AHS got contributions from a number of players, most notably junior running back Nick Ralston who ran for 122 yards on 16 carries.
Argyle’s pair of Texas Tech verbal commits, Ian Sadler and Connor Wilson had a hand in four of Argyle’s six touchdowns on the night. Sadler did a little bit of everything for the AHS offense, including completing all seven of his pass attempts for 70 yards and a touchdown, in addition to racking up 70 yards combined rushing and receiving. Wilson had two rushing touchdowns and a receiving touchdown as well. Kansas State verbal commit, Sam SIzelove known more as a defensive stalwart also contributed offensively with three receptions for 50 yards and a touchdown.
Argyle raced out to a 28-0 lead before Kennedale would get on the board late in the first half on a 45 yard touchdown pass from Bradon Hull to Juwan Washington. It would be Kennedale’s only pass completion of the night. Argyle was able to score right before the half on a 23 yard field goal by Cole Hedlund to take a comfortable 31-7 lead into the halftime break.
Kennedale’s ground game which had put up big numbers in their first three games was held to just 129 yards on 43 attempts.
Prestonwood Christian 56, Roosevelt 17
CARROLLTON — Ryan Bradberry scored three touchdowns and quarterback Twayne Blackwell added a pair of scoring passes as Prestonwood Christian rolled past Roosevelt, 56-17, in a nondistrict contest at Lions Stadium.

Devin Johnson paced the Roosevelt (0-4) attack with a pair of scores.
Cistercian 28, Greenhill 21
ADDISON — Dare Odeyingbo rushed for 216 yards, but his most important play in Irving Cistercian’s 28-21 victory over Greenhill at Brinkmann Field may have been on defense.
With 2:30 left in the game Greenhill’s Jalen Sharp received a pass, averted two tackles and appeared to be headed down the sideline with no one left to beat for the game-tying score before Odeyingbo tracked him down from behind at the 38. Greenhill (1-3, 0-2 in SPC North) fumbled on the next play after the 27-yard completion, effectively ending the game.
