Game Summaries:

Varsity: (per Dallas Morning News)
Frisco Lone Star 21, Frisco Wakeland 13
Jason Shelley passed for 143 yards, rushed for 143 yards and scored all three of Frisco Lone Star’s touchdowns in a 21-13 win over Frisco Wakeland on Thursday night at Toyota Stadium.
Lone Star led 21-0 at halftime on Shelley’s three total touchdowns, including a 7-yard scamper with just 20 seconds left in the first half.
Wakeland opened the second half with an 18-yard touchdown run by Brent Altieri. After a Lone Star turnover, Wakeland scored on Noah Anderson’s 24-yard TD pass to Justice Williams. Wakeland had an opportunity to force overtime in the closing seconds but was stopped a yard short of the first down at the Lone Star 3-yard line.
Lone Star and Wakeland came into the contest averaging more than 50 points per game but combined for nine turnovers.

JV:
On Wednesday the Lone Star JV football team battled a tough Wakeland team at Wakeland Stadium.  The Rangers moved the ball down the field repeatedly on offense but were unable to score.  The defense made some big tackles for losses against the Wolverines but couldn't keep them out of the endzone.  In the end the Rangers suffered their first loss of the season, 28-0.
