Bi-District roundup (Thursday): Argyle kicker Cole Hedulnd sets national career field goal record; Frisco Centennial outlasts Creekview; SOC, Kimball win big
Argyle 57, Krum 12
DENTON — Before the night started, Argyle kicker Cole Hedlund needed four field goals to hold a share of another national record.
When the night ended, he didn’t hold a share of the record. He owned it outright.
Hedlund knocked down his 51st career field goal to set the national record for most career field goals made in Argyle’s 57-12 win against Krum in a Class 3A Division II Region II bi-district contest.
In one night, Hedlund tied and broke both the state and national record for most career field goals. After missing two field goal attempts in the final game of the regular season, Hedlund made five field goals against Krum.
“Coming into tonight, I really wanted to redeem myself, kind of get back out there and try to make my field goals,” Hedlund said. “It was a great night, and I’m just really glad I was able to make history.”
With the win, Argyle (11-0) advanced in the playoffs to face Melissa in the area round of the playoffs. Krum (3-8) was eliminated from the postseason.
