It will happen again and AHS will win, win, win. … AHS 27, Monterey 24

Wichita Falls High (1-2, 0-1) at Randall (2-3, 0-1), 7 p.m. Old High rolls into this one still a bit of a mystery team;

Meanwhile, Randall proved last week it can play supreme.

Coach Selman and his Raiders are hungrier than all get out,

Randall plays serious D, winning this one, no doubt. … Randall 35, Old High 21

Friday games

Palo Duro (0-4, 0-1) at Lubbock Coronado (4-0, 0-0), 7 p.m. The Don started last week impressing with a 90 yard drive;

With Robertson at the helm Coronado scores like crazy;

This one is a Coronado win, and it won’t be hazy. … Coronado 55, Palo Duro 7

Tascosa (4-1, 2-0) vs. Lubbock High (2-4, 0-2)

Tascosa 2, Lubbock High 0. … Covid sucks.

Lubbock Cooper (4-1, 1-0) at Plainview (2-2, 0-0), 7 p.m. Cooper is the real deal, that’s for sure;

Not exactly the team Plainview needs to find a cure.

Cooper will find the checkerboard endzone in Bulldog land,

This will be all Cooper, do you understand? … Cooper 42, Plainview 13

Abilene Wylie (2-0, 0-0) at Wichita Falls Rider (4-1, 1-0), 7 p.m. A lot of eyes will be on this game, no doubt;

Canyon’s D the difference, it’s a Mean Machine. … Canyon 17, Dumas 14

Hereford (4-3, 0-1) at Pampa (7-1, 0-1), 7 p.m. The Herd is catching Pampa at the wrong time;

That Harvesters loss has them caring less about this rhyme.

Pampa’s offense is still the real deal;

Hereford will find out, for real. … Pampa 42, Hereford 13.

Seminole (3-5, 1-1) at Perryton (2-5, 1-1), 7 p.m. Seminole’s bus ride a mere five hours for this one;

Perryton can relate, those trips are no fun.

But forget bus rides it’s football that will be played;

Perryton at home? This win won’t be delayed. … Perryton 24, Seminole 17

Lubbock Estacado (3-6, 2–1) at Levelland (2-6, 1-1), 7 p.m. We have an interesting one here;

Nondistrict Estacado was given up for dead, oh dear;

Levelland is still in the title hunt as 2-4A DII is insane;

Go with Estacado, tough one to predict or explain. … Estacado 34, Levelland 31

Vega (6-2, 2-0) at Stratford (4-4, 2-0), 7 p.m. Here’s another appetizing Week 10 matchup in a night of many. Who will come away as the District 3-2A Division II champion of two power run teams? The Longhorns have been solid all season, but the Elks have the experience in big games. … Stratford 26, Vega 21

Gruver (2-7, 1-2) at Sunray (4-4, 1-1), 7 p.m.

Clarendon (6-2, 1-1) at Wheeler (7-1, 2-0), 7 p.m. Can the Mustangs stay in the hunt for a District 4-2A Division II title, or will the Broncos bounce back from last week’s loss to Wellington. One thing is certain, this game will be extremely physical. … Clarendon 26, Wheeler 20
