Game Summaries: Varsity

Summary Dallas Morning News

LUCAS-DJ Rivers accounted for 256 total yards and 3 touchdowns for Frisco Lone Star (3-0), who remained unbeaten with a 35-3 win against Lovejoy on Friday.

Rivers, a senior, had scoring runs of 2 and 44 yards. He also threw a 30-yard touchdown pass to Marvin Mimms in the first quarter.

Lone Star senior running back Kirby Bennett III added two touchdowns. The Lone Star defense held Lovejoy to 99 total yards and forced them to punt 7 times.

Lovejoy (0-3) scored its only points in the second quarter on a 32-yard field goal by Jared McClemore following a Lone Star turnover.

JV:
The JV team squared off against the Lovejoy Leopards at Lone Star Stadium on Thursday night.  The defenses made life difficult for both offenses in the 1st quarter as the two teams traded punts multiple times.  The first big play of the game came early in the second quarter.  With the Lone Star defense backed up against their own goal line, Jordan Dupre deflected a pass over the middle that fell into the waiting hands of Antwane Braud.  Antwane returned the ball  18 yards but a penalty pushed the Ranger offense back to its own 7 yard line to start the next possession.

The Ranger offense immediately got out of their own end with a 29 yard catch and run from Grant Hardy to Jacob Bogdon.  The offense stalled from there but Tanner Denton’s punt was a good one that pinned the Leopards back at their own 17 to start the next drive.  After a quick defensive stop, the offense quickly moved the ball down the field and found pay dirt as Grant Hardy ran the ball in from the 2, to give Lone Star a 6-0 lead.  Tanner Denton split the uprights for the extra point and it looked like Lone Star would take a 7-0 lead in to halftime.  But the Rangers weren’t done yet.

The defense forced a quick 3-and-out, so the offense had another chance to score before the half.  After a couple of big catches by Jacob Bogdon and Tyron Hall, Grant Hardy once again found the endzone on a 14 yard run.  Tanner Denton booted the ball through uprights and the Rangers took a 14-0 lead to the half.

The 3rd quarter started with some momentum as Tanner Denton dropped a nasty pooch kick in front of a Lovejoy returner that Garrett Shelley pounced on to set up the offense at the 34 yard line.  The offense wasted no time as Elliot Schubert caught an 8 yard pass and then Grant Hardy ran for  26 yards and his 3rd TD of the night.  After another kick from Tanner Denton, the Rangers were holding a 21-0 lead.

On Lovejoy’s next possession, Darius Cannon intercepted a Leopard pass and returned it 50 yards to the Lovejoy 5 yard line.  2 plays later the stadium was energized as Joseph Everson punched in a 2 yard run for the touchdown.  The kick by Denton was true once again, as the Rangers took a commanding 28-0 lead into the 4th quarter.

The Rangers took the air out of the ball and effectively ran out the clock for the remainder of the game.  The Rangers move to 1-2 for the season and will be in action next WEDNESDAY at 5:30 at Denton Ryan High School.  Go Rangers!

9th Grade
The 9th grade navy team started the game off with a quick 3 and out and played  tough the entire game.  The defensive line played extremely tough led by Hayden Schafer who was in the Love Joy backfield most of the night.  The lone star offense had its fair share of explosive plays by Trace Bruckler and Brandon Spencer who make some key 1st down plays as well as combine for the 2 touchdowns for the rangers.  Other defensive stand outs where Titus Bourne and Jaylen Fuksa.  The rangers lost their first game with a score of 15-13 taking the navy to 2-1 for the season.

The Lone Star Ranger Silver Team took the field against North Forney Thursday evening.  The Lone Star offense made big plays in the first half which led to a Rangers' touchdown midway through the 2nd quarter.  The Lone Star defense stood strong after the touchdown leaving them trailing North Forney by one score at the half.  The Rangers received the ball to start the second half, but North Forney's defense held strong forcing a Lone Star punt.  North Forney made some key halftime adjustments, and the Ranger defense was unable to contain a couple big plays in the second half.   It was a hard fought game by both ball clubs, with big plays being the key factor in the final decision.  The Lone Star Silver Team fell just short as time expired in the game.
