AT&T Stadium, AKA Jerry’s World, plays host to 3 Area round matchups today that are sure to have plenty of fireworks in the form of touchdowns. Saturday is round 2 in a multiple of ways. Two of the three matchups feature rematches of games played earlier in the year.
First up – Denton Guyer VS Cedar Hill (noon kickoff)
Denton Guyer comes into this Saturday matchup against a Cedar Hill team that rolled through district undefeated and hasn’t lost since September 7th. That date is important because, well, that loss was to none other than Denton Guyer.
Cedar Hill is looking to avenge their first meeting when the Wildcats took the win 40-36 in a tight game.
Guyer has been rolling. Defense is strong, and Texas A&M commit – Eli Stowers has his offense flying high. Guyer defeated Hebron convincingly in a Bi-District matchup one week ago.
Prediction – Guyer 42, Cedar Hill 28
Second Game – Duncanville VS Flower Mound (3pm Kickoff)
Duncanville has been king of class 6A in the DFW area now for the past two years, and this years playoff run looks like their best yet. This Panther team is dominant in every phase of the game. Scoring on Special Teams, Defense, and boasting one potent offense that had Dallas’ own Dale Hanson say they were better than NFL teams!
Flower Mound has struggled at times this year against the good teams. Coming in with an 8-3 record, the Jaguars have their work cut out for them. Barely edging out Keller in the Bi-District, needing every point, Flower Mound needs a perfect game if they want to pull off the upset of the year.
Prediction – Duncanville 60, Flower Mound 24
Third Game – Denton Braswell VS Red Oak (7pm Kickoff)
Every primetime show puts its best in the spotlight in the evenings. AT&T Stadium might very well have saved their best lineup for the last game of the day.
Our second rematch of the day pins the Hawks of Red Oak against the Bengals of Denton Braswell.
All eyes are going to be on this game. Who will make the stand in the battle of high flying offenses, and stingy defenses?
Since its stunning loss against Braswell in the season opener, Red Oak has reeled off 10 straight wins in blow out style. Averaging over 55 points a game, the Hawks are one of the nations highest scoring teams.
Braswell has been making history of its own. This fourth year program suffered back to back losses early after that steller victory against Red Oak, and since those two losses, Braswell has been on a roll of its own.
Averaging over 45 points a game, and 500 yards of offense, this Bengal unit can score with anyone.
Will this game be an offensive display or a defense performance. Either way, both teams and both sides of the ball can play. The difference in this game is going to come down to who ever has the ball last, and the tenacity of its coaching staff.
Prediction – Denton Braswell 42, Red Oak 35
