Benbrook Texas Sports
Benbrook Middle opened as a mixed middle and high school in 2014, and Fort Worth ISD broke ground on its first baseball field in 2015. The varsity baseball team is well positioned because it does not have its own field, but it is not the only team in the district with a baseball program.
Argyle have risen to the top of the state league table, while Midlothian Heritage and Melissa Aubrey have also looked strong in the early stages. The Bells are favoured to rise to 3A Howe, who lost 47-24 last week, and Van Alstyne is coming off a 54-24 win over Bonham, who are only 75 points behind their neighbours.
DCTF voters were impressed enough to beat Argyle in front of Waco La Vega, but they will meet defending 4AD2 state champion Texarkana. They allowed 14 points to Krum, whom they defeated 27-0 last week, and now trail defending 3A state champion Texas City 44-14.
Pottsboro, ranked No. Connally, who is in the state's top ten in 4AD2, shows a bruised attack led by Cavian Gaither. Two - time defending 3ad1 State Champ Grandview will rise another grade higher as Godley has lit up the scoreboard so far this season.
Senior quarterback Nate Aguinaga made sure Benbrook never got the ball back and helped Ferris run out of the clock in the 20-14 win over the Bulldogs on Friday night. Layne said earlier this week that this was the best defense she had ever seen. Ve had in several years. In the season's opening game - a 20-to-6 loss, Ferrius threw just nine passes in a game. The only play of the game was a Trey that gave them a 20-14 lead, but they made up for it with 18.5 seconds left in the first half.
Benbrook had the ball at the Ferris 2-yard line, but Benbrook had the first chance - and 20 when the Ferris defense delivered the knockout blow. A second-down shot helped Ferrius (1-1) limit the damage on the field goal and hold the lead. Benbeook had a ball at the Ferris (2) yard line and a second down sack Allowed them just one more field goal but maintained a 20-17 lead.
James Earnest took advantage of his team's blunder to make it 14-14 with 3: 12 left in the second quarter. Ferris Benbrook held onto three points and 78 yards offense on the night after a 2-9 season.
Ferris dominated on the ground, holding Texas Tech in the game at 112 rushing yards and amassing 248 yards on 53 carries. It was Benbrook's highest total performance since 2018, when he ran for 368 yards in the 33-14 victory over Ferris. He finished with a career-high 467 yards and three touchdowns, which was the first game of his career in which he had more rushing yards than any other player in Texas State.
Midlothian Heritage has had a torrid start after dispatching its fellow countryman - the leader Lindale last week 28-21. Aubrey also started 2-0 after beating Whitesboro 26-3 in the first game of the season last Friday night.
QB Daelin Rader had 190 yards total and a TD pass, while RB Cullen Stone ran for 83 yards with two TDs. QB Preston Escobar had a breakout game that ended his career - a career-high 142 yards on the ground and two touchdowns on 14 carries.
QB Braden Plyler contributed four TDs, while RB Jett Carroll finished with 126 yards and a score. QB Sam Fennegan, who switched from Dallas to Woodrow Wilson, threw for a career-high 300 yards on 14-of-23 passing.
HC John Settle saw bright spots from RB Obi Arinze, who ran for 216 yards and a TD, while junior Max McAda threw a TD pass and had two touchdown receptions for Melissa. Grandmaster LB Matt Lehnhardt converted a fumble for a touchdown while the defense held Salado to 113 yards. Benbrook (0-2) needed just two plays to go 2-for-2, but an incomplete pass on the first play of the second resulted in a 3-yard touchdown pass from Fennegan to Jett Carroll for the game's first touchdown.
Benbrook is still waiting for his first win of the season after falling behind 20-17. In his third game in less than a week after a two-week suspension for a violation of team rules, Ferris came into play when it became clear that the Fort Worth ISD school could start its season at any time. After a 30-0 first-half deficit last week, Bosqueville lost to Holland 14-7 on Saturday.
Head coach Justin Chavez told WFAA: 'We're all in it together, and that means our students and our coaches who drive 30 miles almost every day because they're there for the love of the game. Ferris had to face three different opponents in Tarrant County when Benbrook was unable to start due to health issues.
