Southwest No. 11 Brenham (Texas) saw its defense do the dirty work in a 31-3 win at Lamar Consolidated. The unit allowed just 56 yards of offense and has allowed just 58 points all season. Southwest No. 12 Abilene (Texas) proved its worth with a 38-28 win over traditional power Midland Lee. The combination of Marcus Johnson to Jerale Badon proved too tough for the Rebels to handle. Johnson threw for 244 yards, including 146 to Badon, who had seven catches, including a 48-yard score with less than eight minutes remaining. Southwest No. 13 Westlake (Austin, Texas), the Class 5A Division II runner-up, rejoins the rankings with a 25-7 win over previously undefeated Austin Bowie. Westlake, ranked No. 7 in last week's state 5A poll, was No. 17 in the preseason Student Sports FAB 50, but fell from the ratings with a loss. That doesn't mean Westlake isn't still dangerous though with the likes of TE Joey Thomas and WR Aaron Garza. Southwest No. 14 North Platte (6-0), Nebraska's No. 2-ranked team, joins the ratings for the first time with a 28-6 win over Columbus. Lincoln East is up next. Southwest No. 15 Conway (Ark.) reenters the rankings as Arkansas' No. 1 team after a brief hiatus because of the emergence of former No. 1 Springdale. But Springdale's loss to Russellville opened the door yet again. Conway beat North Little Rock, 35-0, as senior QB Blake Edwards scored on three 1-yard runs. Junior fullback Peyton Hillis (110 yards) and junior halfback Kevin Wardlow (104 yards) each scored once. SOUTHWEST NOTES What was worse for the Bishop Carroll Catholic (Wichita, Kansas) football team on Friday night? Losing to Wichita Heights, 23-0, at home, or losing standout QB Mike Friess for the season? Both are sure to have long-lasting effects on the team. Friess. might be out for the season after hitting his thumb against a defender's helmet in the first quarter. Friess has committed to Oklahoma State. Robert E. Lee (Tyler, Texas) keep up this impressive run the rest of the season? Lee defeated its second straight FAB 50 team, this time with a 28-21 win over Longview. Last week the Red Raiders beat former Texas No. 1 Lufkin. Matt Flynn rushed for 126 yards and scored three times. Keondra Smith added 22 carries for 148 yards. Houston (Texas) Memorial completely stymied former Southwest No. 12 Eisenhower (Aldine, Texas) in a 31-7 win on Saturday to drop Eisenhower to 4-2. Eisenhower's only scored was on a fumble return. Patrick Johnson was the big-play guy, with a 53- and 5-yard touchdown runs and a TD pass. Springdale, Arkansas' top team, dropped to 5-1 with a 48-33 loss to Russellville. Senior quarterback Landon Leach completed 29-of-39 passes for 454 yards and two touchdowns to lead the upset. The Bulldogs never led but pulled within 41-33 with 1:49 remaining to play in the game but couldn't recover an on-side kick. State-ranked Celina (Texas)stretched its state-record winning streak to 63 games with a 29-21 escape vs. Pottsboro. Pilot Point (Texas) coach G.A. Moore Jr. will have to wait a couple more weeks to set the milestone he's been waiting a lifetime to achieve. Moore's team lost to Gainesville, 30-0, dropping his coaching career record to 394-73-9, just two victories away from the state record for career wins behind Gordon Wood's mark of 396-91-15.
