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.
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.

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.
