Varsity: (per Dallas Morning News)
FRISCO — Jason Shelley accounted for six touchdowns and 533 yards total offense as Frisco Lone Star turned a close game at halftime into a 52-27 rout of Frisco Heritage on Friday night at Memorial Stadium.
Shelley completed 16 of 31 passes for 370 yards and four touchdowns through the air and added 163 yards and two touchdowns on the ground.
The game was played at a snail’s pace, lasting well over three hours primarily because the teams combined for 34 incomplete passes and 21 penalties totaling 220 yards.
But when Shelley was on target, he made it count.
His second completion of the game — an 84-yard catch-and-run by Jaylen Dixon on a deflected deep ball — gave Lone Star (6-2, 4-2 in District 9-5A) a 7-0 lead on its first possession. That capped a five-play, 98-yard drive after the Lone Star defense stopped Heritage on fourth down from the two-yard-line.
Shelley also completed first-half touchdown passes of 11 yards to M’Kyl Bordes and 29 yards to Jordan Jones.
Heritage (5-2, 3-2) pulled within 25-13 midway through the third quarter on a 20-yard field goal by Bryce Crawford.
But Shelley found Jones again, this time for a 92-yard touchdown, and added fourth-quarter touchdown runs of 56 and 32 yards.
Carlos Bolton also had a Lone Star touchdown in the fourth quarter on a 28-yard interception return.
Last Thursday the JV Rangers took on Frisco Heritage HS at LSHS field. The offense found the end zone on an 18 yard run by Spencer Washington. In the second half Justin Bienemy scored on a 6 yard run and then he also ran in a 2 point conversion from 3 yards out. Defensively the Rangers started slow but came on strong in the second half when Andrew Zammarippa and Nick Webb forced a fumble that was recovered by Dante Ewell. On the next series, a host of Rangers caused a fumble that was recovered by Gabriel Hodges. In the end, the Rangers fell 36-14.
On Thursday night, the Lone Star Rangers Silver and Blue Teams battled the Heritage Coyote freshman.
The Silver Team got started by driving down the field on the opening drive to take a 6-0 lead. The Silver team would battle all game just coming up short 8-6. Offensively the Silver team was led by gutsy play from Mason Horak and Josiah Jamison. Defensively the Silver team tackled well, led by RanD Hedrick and Tyler Leone.
The Blue Team would start things off putting together an eight play drive to pay dirt to take an early 6-0 lead on the Coyotes. The Coyote offense would answer with a score of their own the following drive to make it 8-6. The Blue team would respond with another big drive to take a 14-8 lead. The first half would be back and forth ending in a 20-14 game. The second half would be a defensive battle by both sides. The Blue team put together great drives but just couldn’t find the end zone, while the defense played hard all night! The final score would end at 32-14 Coyotes. Defensively the Rangers were led by the play of Condae Thomas and Zach Douglas. Offensively, Xavier Rodriguez and Trejon St. Junior were relentless in their efforts.
