Dallas Morning News logo Dallas Morning News 4 days ago By Greg Riddle, The Dallas Morning News

Player of the day

Frisco Liberty quarterback Keldric Luster was 18 of 20 passing for 319 yards and two touchdowns, and he ran for 266 yards and five TDs in a 58-51 win over Frisco Memorial. That’s 585 yards of total offense.

Luster scored the winning touchdown on a 65-yard run — the only points of the fourth quarter. Frisco Memorial scored 44 points in the first half and still lost.

Another wild one for Braswell

De’Auvion Gafford’s 75-yard touchdown run with 6:29 left was the game-winning score as Denton Braswell beat Northwest Eaton 44-37. It was the third consecutive win for Braswell by seven points or less.

Braswell also won thrillers the previous two weeks, beating Keller 38-37 in overtime and holding off Richardson Pearce 69-63. Quarterback Tristan McClary accounted for three touchdowns and 303 yards of offense for Braswell (3-1) on Friday.

TAPPS showdown

Four-star running back Emeka Megwa scored four touchdowns (three rushing) to lead No. 3 Fort Worth Nolan to a 41-27 win over No. 2 Fort Worth All Saints in a matchup of area-ranked TAPPS teams.

All Saints has four of the top 45 recruits in the Dallas area, but Nolan (3-0) jumped out to a 21-0 lead in the first quarter.

Lovejoy’s big comeback

R.W. Rucker’s 4-yard touchdown pass to Luke Mayfield with 19 seconds left completed a big comeback for Lovejoy as it beat Denison 31-24.

Lovejoy trailed 24-10 entering the fourth quarter, but tied the score 24-24 on Rucker’s 7-yard TD run with 2:38 remaining. Lovejoy (4-0) remained undefeated as its defense held Denison without a first down in the fourth quarter.

Late heroics

— Aidan Birr kicked a 34-yard field goal in overtime as Kennedale (5-0-1) remained unbeaten with a 16-13 win over Fort Worth Benbrook. Birr also made a game-winning kick — a 22-yard field goal as time expired — in a season-opening 28-27 win over Sunnyvale on Sept. 11.

— Keller Fossil Ridge beat Little Elm 21-17 thanks to a goal-line stand in the final two minutes. Little Elm had first-and-goal at the 6, but could gain only 1 yard on the next four plays and turned the ball over on downs.
