I guess Argyle2014 must've skipped this week's homework assignment, Huh?  I'd be happy as a lark for the Eagles to win by 21........but this Melissa offensive group just has too many weapons and too much speed with a very good QB at the  helm.  That spells tuff sleddin' for any defense.

Melissa is putting up 51.5 points a game against defenses that are allowing 24.3 per game, so scoring 27.2 more points than the defense they are facing allows on average.  Argyle putting up 44.5 a game against defenses that allow just 15.8, so 28.7 points more.  Argyle with an ever-so-slight edge here.

On the defensive side, Melissa is holding offenses that score 35.3 on average to 30.8 (4.5 points fewer) while Argyle is holding teams that score 29.7 on average to 19.5 (10.2 fewer).  Slight edge to Argyle here. 

It's early, and the sample sizes are small, but this looked like a fun game to do.

Argyle in a close, high scoring game.  50-44.

Offensive game coming up........the real question is which defense will play the best???  Every possession on offense will be critical tonight to try to move the chains:

1.) to get a score

2.) to maintain control of the ball and clock

3.) play for good field position

Melissa has the ball, but the Argyle D is doing a good job so far and getting to Fennegan with pressure.  Now a fumble and Argyle gets it on the Melissa 35.  It's all Argyle so far.......a nightmare start for Melissa.  They just don't have an answer yet for Argyle's offense and can't move the ball on Argyle's defense

#8 Taylor in at QB for Melissa fakes handoff and keeps it for a TD right up the middle.  He's a senior QB and definitely the better runner.  Gave a sweep look to Argyle on that fake handoff and waited just a second for the hole to open and bolted right thru for the TD untouched.

Argyle 21

Early 2nd qtr.
