Lockney vs. Texas Leadership Charter Academy (Abilene)

Lockney traveled to Abilene Friday and earned a statement victory over Texas Leadership Charter Academy 55-16.

The Longhorns rushed for nearly 400 yards in the contest with running back Xavier Jimenez making the biggest impact. He rushed for 186 yards and three rushing scores including a 61-yard touchdown. Quarterback Dyllan Thiebaud only threw six passes in the contest but made the most of those opportunities, converting that into five completions for 120 yards and two passing touchdowns. Thiebaud also rushed for 42 yards and another rushing touchdown.

The Longhorns move to 2-1 on the year with the victory and will play West Texas/ Stinnet in their final non-district matchup this week.

Floydada vs. New Home

New Home broke Floydada’s undefeated record Friday night, taking them down 38-7. The Whirlwinds were unable to get a rhythm going on offense, giving up three turnovers in the contest and being limited to under 250 yards of total offense. Quarterback Ty Henderson led the way 96 yards on the ground and only 60 yards through the air. He scored the team’s lone touchdown on a two-yard rush.

The Whirlwinds host their homecoming game this week as they take on Hale Center Friday night.

Hale Center vs. Ropes

The Fighting Owls were no match for Ropes Friday night, falling 33-6.

For the second straight week the Owls were held to just one score, failing to find a groove on offense. The Owls drop to 1-3 with the loss and will look to find a win on the road against Floydada.

Sudan vs. Seagraves

Sudan fell in heartbreaking fashion to Seagraves 21-20 on homecoming night for the Hornets.

Turnovers cost the Hornets big time in this contest. Quarterback Trent Wilson had three interceptions on 31 pass attempts. The Hornets were able to get behind running back Marcello King who rushed for 111 yards and a rushing score in the contest but it wasn’t enough.

The Hornets drop to 2-2 with the loss and will finish up non-district play on the road against Plains

Olton vs. Bovina

Olton pulled out a tough 26-20 win over Bovina last week to improve to 3-1.

The Mustangs relied on the run-game in Friday’s contest, rushing for over 300 yards in the game. Sophomore Isaiah Ruiz led the way with a career-high 173 yards on the ground and two rushing touchdowns. Quarterback Raymond Ramirez Jr. had an efficient day on the ground as well with 106 yards on 22 carries.

The Mustangs will look to improve to 4-1 this week as they host Vega this week.
