Game Summaries:

Varsity: (per Dallas Morning News)
Frisco Lone Star 56, Little Elm 14
FRISCO — Sophomore quarterback Jason Shelley accounted for five touchdowns and 300 yards of offense as Frisco Lone Star defeated Little Elm at Frisco Memorial Stadium.
Lone Star (5-0, 3-0 District 9-5A) scored on seven of eight possessions in the first half to build a 49-0 lead at the break. Lone Star’s defense limited Little Elm (1-4, 1-2) to three first downs in the half. Shelly rushed for 78 yards on 12 carries and also threw for 222 yards on 12-of-15 passing. Lone Star junior running back Robert Hall ran for three touchdowns and finished with 52 yards on seven carries.

JV:
On Wednesday night, your Rangers JV football team squared off against a tough Little Elm team at Lobos Stadium. After an exciting opening kickoff that was fumbled by the Lobos and recovered by the Rangers, the 1st half was a back-and-forth affair that resulted in two early Lobos touchdowns. The Rangers responded when Colt Hedrick found Dakota Albrecht for a touchdown late in the second quarter. The Lobos led 14-6 at halftime. The Rangers fell behind 22-6 early in the fourth quarter before Justin Bienemy scored on a long touchdown run to cut the lead to 22-12. The time ran out on the Rangers comeback bid as the JV team fell to 3-2 on the season.

9th Grade:
On Wednesday night, the Lone Star Ranger Silver took on the Wakeland Wolverines. The Ranger offense was led by Mason Horak completing a 32 yard pass to Clayton McKenzie as well as short completions to Dominic Petro and Caleb Lorance. Defensively the Rangers had big hits by Kamryn Majors and Bryce Bubak. The Silver team fell in the hard fought loss 21-0. 

The Ranger Blue team took on the Little Elm Lobos. The Rangers battled hard the first half, but found themselves in a 21-0 hole due to untimely turnovers. Following halftime, the Rangers unleashed a resilient offensive and defensive turnaround. The Ranger defense came up with huge stops led by big plays from Josh Coleman and a pick by Adrian Thomas. Offensively, the Rangers found some major firepower in Lamashus Rivers having big gains on the ground and Kavika "Duce" Pittman through the air. Big plays made by Xavier Rodriguez, Zack Douglas and a great performance by the offensive line allowed the Rangers to bring the game within reach. However, the Rangers came up just short in the final seconds falling 28-20 to the Lobos. 

RANGERS IMPACTING THE COMMUNITY
Members of the Lone Star football team visited Newman elementary on Friday morning for Newman’s weekly assembly. The players spoke to students about five life skills that are the cornerstone of the Ranger football program: discipline, physical conditioning, relating to peers, relating to authority and reacting to and handling emotion. Students explained their feeling that if they master these skills, they have a chance to be highly successful.
