2021 - 2022 Texas high school football rankings, scores: Week three
AUSTIN, Texas - Welcome back, high school football fans! Below you will find a complete rundown of Texas high school football scores as well as highlights from the 2021 Texas high school football season:
LBJ EARNS 2ND STRAIGHT WIN OVER STATE-RANKED OPPONENT TO STAY UNBEATEN
Just a week after knocking off a state-ranked opponent among private schools, LBJ showed they can also dominate the elite competition in the UIL ranks, the teams they might eventually face in the post-season.
In a battle of top five teams in Class 4A Division I, 4th-ranked LBJ used a strong defensive performance and three second-half touchdowns to knock off 3rd-ranked Waco La Vega, 28-7.
The Jaguars' Trent Leary set the tone early with an interception, and he and his teammates shut out La Vega in the 2nd half, holding the Pirates to under 50 yards of total offense. The Jags' three touchdowns after the halftime break turned a close game into a comfortable signature win.
WEISS ROLLS TO SECOND STRAIGHT BLOWOUT WIN
The Weiss Wolves overcame an early deficit to hand Rouse its first loss of the season in blowout fashion, winning 54-20.
The Wolves took control of the game after falling behind 7-0 on the strength of two touchdown passes from quarterback Christian Dior to receiver Micah Gifford.
After a Week 1 loss, Weiss has strung together two straight wins by 28 points or more.
ROUND ROCK BUILDS EARLY LEAD, THEN RALLIES KNOCK OFF CEDAR PARK
The Round Rock Dragons' hot start to 2021 with perhaps their most impressive yet, considering the competition.
Round Rock used a stout defensive effort and a 4tth quarter touchdown to upstage Cedar Park's vaunted "Black Rain" defense on its home field, knocking off the Timberwolves 21-17 at Gupton Stadium.
The Dragons used two touchdown runs by Trayvian McCoy-Gay (a 78 yarder) and Tavori Donaldson to take a 14-0 lead in the 2nd quarter.
CP rallied to take a 17-14 lead, but Round Rock scored a touchdown midway through the 4th quarter that turned out to be the game-winner.
TEXANS BOUNCE BACK, GET PAYBACK IN CONVINCING WIN OVER LAMPASAS
A week after losing a battle of state-ranked teams to Cuero, and a year after losing big on the road against Lampasas, the Wimberley Texans turned the tables on the Badgers, delivering the dominance this time around, knocking off Lampasas at Texan Stadium, 45-21.
Wimberley rolled up close to 600 yards of total offense and got four touchdown passes from quarterback Cash McCollum, as the 9th-ranked Texans avenged last season's 29 point loss at Lampasas.
LIBERTY HILL GRINDS OUT ROAD WIN OVER G'TOWN IN DEFENSIVE STRUGGLE
After Liberty Hill and Georgetown each scored 60 points in their previous games, an offensive showcase was expected when the two met Friday in Georgetown.
Instead, a defensive slugfest broke out, with Liberty Hill landing enough punches to earn a 17-13 road win.
With the game tied at 7 in the 2nd quarter, the Panthers' Devin Riley scored on a 10-yard touchdown run to give Liberty Hill the lead for good in the 2nd quarter.
CEDAR RIDGE RIDES HOT START TO 2ND WIN IN BLOWOUT OF HAYS
Everything went right for Cedar Ridge early on in their win over Hays. The Raiders hung four touchdowns on the board by early in the 2nd quarter on their way to a 48-13 win.
After leading 14-0, Cedar Ridge quarterback Aiden Liston threw touchdown passes to Matthew Brooks and Victor Taylor Jr. to take a 27-0 lead. The Raiders were never threatened by Hays on their way to bouncing back from a Week Two loss to Cedar Park.
Cedar Ridge is now 2-1 on the season, Hays slips to 1-2, having lost two straight.
FOX 7 Friday Football Player of the Week
This week's FOX 7 Friday Football Player of the Week is Weiss Wolves wide receiver Micah Gifford. Gifford caught 10 passes for 197 yards and four touchdowns as Weiss handed Rouse its first loss of the season in blowout fashion, 54-20.
