District 5-5A Roundup: Coppell rolls again

We’re only two weeks deep into the 2013 season, but things are slowly getting clearer in District 5-5A.

After everybody with the exception of Lewisville picked up a win to start the season, four of the six teams in 5-5A dropped their second games of the season.

The teams that won? Ryan and Coppell. We know what Ryan did last week, but let’s see what went right (and wrong) in the Week One (or Week Two or whatever the name is — nobody really cares).

Coppell 49, McKinney Boyd 24

For another week, Coppell flexed its muscles and showed why the Cowboys are the favorite to win the district. Coppell cruised behind a balanced offensive attack.

Junior quarterback Skylar Bonneau completed all eight of his passes for 189 yards and two touchdowns. Senior running back Gavin McDaniel racked up 123 rushing yards and

Mansfield Timberview 21, Hebron 17

Hebron couldn’t carry the momentum from last week’s blowout win against Abilene against Timerberview on Friday night. Hebron opened with a 7-0 lead but Timberview recovered and scored 15 straight points and stifled the Hawks’ offense.

Penalties killed the Hawks (1-1). Hebron committed nine penalties for 102 yards and only had 175 yards of total offense. You’re not going to win using that combination.

Arlington 35, Flower Mound Marcus 14

This game was tied at 14-14 before Arlington scored the final 21 points to pick up the win.

Marcus outgained Arlington but committed five turnovers (three interceptions, two fumbles), which will cause any head coach to be beside himself. Arlington committed 17 penalties for 142 yards and still won. That’s about all you need to know about how bad a night this was for the Marauders.

Marcus can’t do the same things against Guyer this Friday night because that could bring the team’s second loss in three games.

South Grand Prairie 52, Flower Mound 31

This one was over pretty quickly for the Jaguars. SGP jumped out to a 21-0 lead before five minutes had even ticked off the game clock.

Warriors quarterback Tony Nicholson had three passing touchdowns and two rushing touchdowns to pull off the win. It was really rough outing for Flower Mound quarterback John Hofmeister. He went 6 of 14 for 76 yards and four interceptions.

Ennis 21, Lewisville 13

Lewisville’s offense struggled in a 21-13 loss to Ennis. The Farmers only gained 228 yards of offense. Ennis wasn’t explosive, either, and only picked up 327 offensive yards.
