For the District 8-5A Championship....

5A Texas Football Game of the Week (Week 10)

Allen @ Flower Mound

The Allen Eagles, fresh off their first loss of the season to Hebron (35-28), take on free-scoring Flower Mound in a winner-takes-all battle for the 8-5A district championship. Hebron also handed Flower Mound its only district loss to date on September 24th. The Jags have won five consecutive games since losing to Hebron. Allen was involved in four close games before last week, but could not find the winning margin against a Hebron team moving the ball at will. Turnovers kept the score down.
Flower Mound leads the state with an average of 52.6 points scored per game, and the Jag attack will provide the sternest of tests for a vulnerable Allen defense. The good news for the Eagles is they’ll matched against a Flower Mound defense ranking as one of the state’s worst at 43.7 points allowed. Points are guaranteed in any match-up featuring Flower Mound this season. The question for Allen’s offense, led by junior RB Jonathan Williams, will be whether or not they can keep up. It has taken 58 and 69 points respectively to beat the Jags in their two losses this season. Allen’s high point total of the year so far came in a 49-14 win over Lewisville. Flower Mound, led by prolific senior QB Paul Millard, has topped 50 points five times so far. Allen is a slight favorite due to Williams’ ability to eat up yards on the ground. The Eagles’ running may take a possession or two away from Flower Mound’s offense and ultimately make the difference on the scoreboard.
