In seventh-grade action, the Marauder White team edged Burnett 14-13 at Wylie East High School, with Raul Fierro and Dylan Ruelas leading the offense, and Riley Samuel standing out on defense. Colby Atkins ran for a touchdown and completed another one to Xander Carker for Burnett.

The McMillan Black team engaged in a defensive struggle, which ended in a 13-6 loss to Burnett. Seth Kramer and Logan Popelka led the offense, with the defensive standout being Xavier Cole. The Buccaneers prevailed behind the strong running of Tyler Jackson, with Pierce Hallan tossing two touchdown passes.
