The Falcons opened up district play at Bronco Field in convincing fashion. Sophomore quarterback Dagan Haehn once again played very well as he threw for 187 yards and three touchdowns while also rushing for 96 yards and a touchdown. However, the story of the game was the Falcon defense who was able to stop the Broncos offense in the redzone to prevent the game from getting close.

Result: The Falcons won 42-28.

All-time series record: 0-1

The red-hot Falcons host the Byron Nelson Bobcats in the district home opener when a wrench gets thrown in the season.

The Falcons were down 14-0 in the first quarter and were not able to claw their way back.

Result: The Falcons lost 45-14.

Denton GuyerDenton Guyer

Falcons Current Record: 4-2

The Falcons travel to C.H. Collins on a two game losing streak to face Guyer. Unfortunately, the Falcons were overmatched from the start and playing without their two best wide receivers and running back did not help either. Guyer quarterback and Texas commit Jerrod Heard made it look easy as he racked up 109 of the 321 rushing yards the Falcon defense gave up that night.

Result: The Falcons lost 66-3.
