Analysis: Prosper looks to beat Plano during senior night after loss to Allen 35-7



In an Eagle face-off, Prosper (7-2) fell to Allen (9-0) in the matchup at Children’s Health Stadium Friday, Nov. 1, with a final score of 35-7. As the fourth quarter approached, it seemed to be harder for the home Eagles to fight. Prosper’s 276 yards did not compare to Allen’s 522. But, Prosper did push into Allen’s red zone before turning over the ball, keeping the score 28-0. Jackson Berry played through an injury throwing 121 yards overall.

The Eagles knew it was going to be a hard game going into the night, but they were not able to get the upper hand as Allen forced punts for Prosper’s first five drives. As they headed into the locker room after the first half, Prosper trailed 21-0. The home team’s only points came from Tyler Bailey’s touchdown run in the fourth quarter.

Yet, with their overall 7-2 record, Prosper has clinched a spot in the playoffs. If they manage a win over Plano (3-3), they will be placed in Division I. The Wildcats will travel to Children’s Health after coming off a loss against McKinney Boyd, 28-0. Plano sits right under the Eagles in district standings. McKinney ranks fifth and sports the same 3-3 record. The Wildcats will have to win over the Eagles to assure their spot in playoffs. But, if the Eagles want to advance into Division I, they have to walk away winners of this last district matchup.
