Friday Night Football

The Ryan Raiders, well rested coming off their second bye week in the past three weeks, open District 5-5A action tonight when they meet Flower Mound Marcus at 7:30 p.m. at C.H. Collins Athletic Complex.

Quarterback Mitchell Bridges, out of action since the season-opening victory over Corsicana with a broken fibula, will return to the starting lineup tonight to face a Marcus team that is coming off a 35-21 victory over Plano last week. Marcus is 1-4 for the season.

Lake Dallas, 1-1 in District 5-4A play, will face a tough challenge tonight when the Falcons play host to Wichita Falls Rider, 2-0 in league play and 4-1 for the season. Rider will be trying to keep pace with Guyer, who is now 3-0 in 5-4A play following last night’s 53-28 win over Byron Nelson.

Denton High will be on the road in Wichita Falls to face the Coyotes in a game matching two squads at 0-2 in district play and desperately needing a victory to remain in the race for a possible playoff berth.
