Football finished its non-district schedule on Friday falling 19-0 to the Sherman Bearcats on a wet night that saw both defenses lead the way.

Stormy weather delayed the game, but the Bearcats were able to withstand the sloppy conditions to jump out to a 16-0 lead after the first quarter.

“I think we played really well against Sherman, but we needed to step it up in the first quarter,” senior Ryan Coyne said via text. “We need to be able to move the ball offensively [but] I think we play extremely hard and give great effort.”

After the first quarter, the Redhawks defense stood strong, allowing just nine yards passing on the night.

“We started a little slow Friday at Sherman defensively but played very well for three quarters,” head football coach Chris Burtch said via email. “The weather did not cooperate with what we wanted or needed to do offensively, but our guys fought their tails off for 4four quarters.”

For many students at the game, the location and weather conditions led to them to head out early. Leaving at halftime, junior Taylor Nwamadi began the 45 minute drive back to Frisco.

“The weather didn’t get any better,” Nwamadi said. “It was continuing to rain so people decided to leave early.”
