You might even call it an upset, except that the Eagles are no slouches with a No. 14 ranking in the MaxPreps state ratings list. Still, the Eagles had only beaten Lancaster one time before Friday, back in 2015. Lake Ridge improves to 2-4 against Lancaster.
David Wilson’s nifty shoe-top interception for a touchdown gives Eagles fans even more reasons to cheer.
▪ Fort Worth North Side is 3-0 for the first time in decades. Opponent Diamond Hill Jarvis hasn’t won since in what seems like decades. The Eagles last victory was Sept. 18, 2010 against Dallas Jefferson.
▪ Keller Timber Creek is off to its first 4-0 start since the school started varsity play in 2010.
Wide receiver Erik Ezukanma had a big kickoff return for a score (something he’s known for) and hauled in two touchdown catches to help the Falcons beat Denton and start 4-0.
▪ Lubbock Cooper’s fumble in victory formation almost handed Weatherford what would have been a much-appreciated first win of the season.
Sadly for the Roos, a last-minute, 51-yard field goal attempt was no good.
▪ Kennedale running back D.J. Kirven practically could have called it a night after his first half-dozen touches.
A first-team all-district selection last year as a sophomore, Kirven needed just six carries to rack up 102 yards and two touchdowns against Wichita Falls Rider on Friday.
His final stat line was far more monstrous.
