Tonight we have a clash of Denton County rivals in Denton High and Lake Dallas in a key District 5-4A matchup while the remainder of Denton-area schools will be getting their final tuneups before entering district action in the next weeks.

Lake Dallas and Denton are both 2-1 heading into tonight’s 5-4A opener with the winner of tonight’s game joining Guyer and Wichita Falls Rider atop the league standings. Guyer dismantled Azle Thursday night 55-14 while Rider rolled to a 50-14 win over Byron Nelson. The other 5-4A matchup tonight is Fort Worth Brewer visiting Wichita Falls.

Ryan, fresh off its bye week, will be in McKinney to face the Lions with hopes of breaking its two-game losing streak.
