Plano West dealt another loss in 55-7 Rout by Prosper

Plano West was handed their worst loss of the 2018 campaign last Friday night, losing 55-7 against the Prosper Eagles. Prosper, who’s ranked at second in District 9-6A behind Allen (8-0), has moved to 7-1 on the season. They will head to Allen next week.

Plano West would be without starting QB Danny Davis (concussion) and WR Tavarius Garland (upper-body injury) against Prosper. Junior Will Cannon filled in for Davis at quarterback.

The Eagles got off to a quick start, finding the end zone twice thanks to a Wayne Anderson 10-yard run and a Jackson Berry 2-yard run. They also kicked two field goals (from 29-yards and 43-yards) to take a commanding 20-0 lead by the end of the first quarter.

The second quarter continued to be dominated by Prosper, who added an additional 28 points to their score to increase their lead to 48. Eagles’ QB Keegan Shoemaker threw three touchdown passes in the second quarter; a 30-yard pass to Wayne Anderson, a 68-yard throw to Hayden Metcalf, and a 7-yard pass to Jostein Clarke. Anderson also broke free with a 55-yard rushing touchdown with 2:47 remaining in the first half.

The second half quieted down, but Prosper RB JT Lane ran for a 33-yard touchdown on the second play of the fourth quarter. Plano West struck for their first score of the game on the following drive, with RB Noah Scroggins rushing for an 8-yard touchdown with 7:10 remaining in the fourth quarter. There was no scoring in the third quarter.
