Week one is now in the books and El Paso teams will gear up for the second week of high school football across the borderland.

Week Two Matchups:

District 1-6A:

  • Midland Christian at Americas - Friday, 4 p.m.
  • Coronado 30 - El Dorado 13- Thursday, FINAL
  • Odessa Permian at Franklin - Friday, 6:30 p.m.
  • Eastlake at Montwood - Friday, 7:30 p.m.
  • Pebble Hills 42 - Midland 38 - Thursday, FINAL
  • Horizon at Socorro - Friday, 7 p.m.

For 1-6A this week, teams will be battle-tested against some out of town teams an some in-town foes. Midland Christian and Odessa Permian will travel to take on Americas and Franklin, respectively, which will be good tests for both teams. Montwood, who came off a big win against Los Fresnos, will take on their SISD partners in Eastlake. Socorro will put their 28-game losing streak on the line against Hanks.

Last night: Pebble Hills was able to fend off Midland High senior quarterback Sudden Sapien, who is a UTSA commit, and beat an out of town team for the first time in program history, 42-38. Sapien had four rushing touchdowns against the Spartans, but Pebble Hills quarterback Sebastian Ochoa had four touchdowns of his own to solidify the win.

District 1-5A Division I:

  • Bel Air at Canutillo - Friday, 7 p.m.
  • Chapin at Andress - Friday, 7:00 p.m.
  • Del Valle at Tucson Salpointe Catholic - Friday, 7 p.m.
  • Eastlake at Montwood- Friday, 7:30 p.m.
  • Eastwood at Plano - Friday, 7 p.m.
  • Coronado 30 - El Dorado 13- Thursday, FINAL

Battle of the northeast as Chapin and Andress will duke it out tonight in a non-district matchup tonight. Chapin is coming off a close loss to Midland Christian last week, while Andress is coming off a walk-off game winning field goal against Coronado in overtime.

Del Valle will hit the road against Tucson Salpointe Catholic tonight for the first time in program history, while Eastwood hits the road to East Texas to take on Plano.

Last night: Coronado and El Dorado both struggled at the beginning, but the Thunderbirds pulled away with a big 30-13 win over El Dorado. Now the Aztecs and first-year head coach David Telas are 0-2 to start the season.

Last week, via Joe Rodriguez: Prior to the game, Americas head coach Patrick Melton stated the sophmore running back Aaron Dumas was going to be the best player on the field of play at the SAC for the opening night of the 2018 high school season.

He was correct.

All Dumas did was carry the ball 34 times for 377 rushing yards and had three rushing touchdowns. And if that wasn't enough for you, Dumas also had the game win reception touchdown off of a hook and ladder trick play to give the Trailblazers their first victory of the season, 39-37.

District 1-5A Division II:

  • Bel Air at Canutillo - Friday, 7 p.m.
  • Horizon - at Socorro - Friday, 7 p.m.
  • Austin at Parkland - Friday, 7 p.m.
  • Burges at Riverside - Friday, 7 p.m.
  • Ysleta at El Paso High - Friday, 7 p.m.

For 1-5A, the Parkland Matadors will aim to bounce back after a tied game last week against Burges (tied for lighting issues at the stadium). On the other end, Burges will try to continue their strong start against Riverside tonight. After losing to Eastlake last week, Canutillo will hope to bounce back at home against Bel Air.

District 2-5A Division II:

  • Chapin at Andress - Friday, 7 p.m.
  • Austin  at Parkland -  Friday, 7 p.m.
  • Bowie at Hanks - Friday, 7 p.m.
  • Burges  at Riverside - Friday, 7 p.m.
  • Ysleta at El Paso - Friday, 7 p.m.
  • Irvin at Clint- Friday, 7 p.m.
  • San Elizario at Jefferson - Friday, 7 p.m.

Andress will try to continue their success as they take on Chapin at home to kick off 2-5A’s slate. Bowie will put their run game to an interesting test against Hanks, who came off a big win over Socorro last week.

Last week, via Steve Escajeda: The Andress Eagles got the 2018 football season off on the right foot—the right foot of Mark Ramos to be exact. It was his 23-yard field goal in overtime that gave the Eagles a 16-13 overtime victory over the Coronado Thunderbirds.

Andress dominated the game for most of the night, leading 13-0 going into the fourth quarter. But a couple of field goals from Juan Pablo Romero and a short touchdown run by Garrett Slaughter tied the game at the end of regulation. Andress running back Jalen Joseph ran for 147 yards and quarterback Dominique Smith threw two touchdown passes.
