Gosset’s guesses: North Crowley should beat Arlington Lamar for first time

Week 5 was upset special as Haslet Eaton and Haltom pulled off wins over Justin Northwest and Abilene, respectively.

Fort Worth Wyatt loved the picker’s 23-21 North Side prediction and used it to fire up during a 48-0 victory over the Steers. The Chaparrals improved to 4-0 and 1-0 in District 7-5A. Fort Worth Southwest proved the picker wrong, too, over Fort Worth Arlington Heights.

Burleson beat Granbury in a battle of 3-0 teams, and Crowley also picked up a win in 9-5A against Burleson Centennial. Arlington and Arlington Martin stayed perfect.

This week features a pair of Class 4A state ranked teams colliding in Nacogdoches when No. 2 West Orange-Stark takes on No. 6 Kennedale. The Wildcats are the lock pick, and 12 others will remain undefeated.

North Crowley is the upset pick over Arlington Lamar. The Panthers have lost all seven meetings to the Vikings, but with the area’s second-leading 6A passer in Caleb Leake (983 yards, 13 TDs) and second-best receiver in Julian Ortega-Jones (461 yards, 11 TDs), things are about to change.

Wyatt's winning ways: Chaparrals serve notice in District 7-5A

QB Michael Franklin threw for 272 yards and four touchdowns, and added 130 rushing yards and another TD, as Fort Worth Wyatt beat North Side, 48-0.
