A&M Consolidated 45, Arlington 18

Colts quarterback Kris Sims threw touchdown passes to three different receivers, Joe Murray, Rodney Luckey and Nate Winters, but A&M Consolidated went on to win the first game of pool play in Division I on Friday. Arlington’s Les Odimara intercepted a pass in the first half and again on an extra-point attempt that was waved off on a penalty.

Austin Anderson 31, Arlington Bowie 13

The Volunteers got within 25-13 late in the second half, but it was Anderson that won its first game of pool play. Bowie scored on a short TD pass from QB Drevonn Ponder to Josh Kelley and the Vols added a successful extra-point attempt on Sims’ pass to Landon Darthard.

Hutto 25, Southlake Carroll 24

The Hippos and Dragons traded TDs until Hutto scored with under two minutes to play and added the game-winning extra-point to improve to 2-0 in pool play. Carroll (1-1) drew a Hutto flag with no time remaining, but a final pass from Quinn Ewers in the end zone was batted away. The Dragons led four times before Hutto’s final score. Ewers, a 2022 QB with eight offers including from Ohio State, threw TD passes to Landon Samson, 2020 Clemson commit RJ Mickens and two to 2020 A&M commit Blake Smith.

Arlington Lamar 50, Belton 34

Quarterback Jack Dawson threw seven TD passes as the Vikings finished off pool play with a win over Belton. Oklahoma commit Trevon West made a nice catch in the first half to put the Vikings ahead 28-14, and Kameron Weil caught two TDs and added an extra point. Colt Fuller scored a TD and an extra point, and Cam Brady added a score.
