The Marauder Black team blanked the Bucs 24-0, scoring 16 points in the game’s first five minutes; running back Darrick McClendon scored twice on the ground, and then blocked a punt before recovering it in the end zone.

The White team recorded an 18-6 victory over the Bucs, with Riley Cook leading the ground assault and Colby Tallant intercepting two passes on defense; he returned one of them 70 yards for a score.
Meanwhile, the Blue team took advantage of two turnovers to record a 26-0 win.

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.
