FOOTBALL: Gainesville dominates Frisco Lone Star, takes bi-district title

DENTON — Gainesville coach Keith Hall wasn’t sure what to expect from his team on Friday.

The typically loose Leopards had a different approach to their first playoff game in two seasons.

“I was a little worried because they were real tight before the game,” Hall said. “They are normally a loose bunch that likes to have a lot of fun but they were real quiet before the game.”

It didn’t take long for his team to respond, though.

Gainsville jumped out to a 42-7 lead in the first half and never looked back in piling up 542 yards of total offense – 478 coming on the ground – in a 66-28 Region II-3A Division I bi-district win over Frisco Lone Star at Bronco Stadium on Friday.

“I was real pleased with how we came out and played tonight,” Gainesville coach Keith Hall said. “We started fast like we have done all year and we were able to do things we needed to do to win.”

Gainesville (11-0) will play Princeton, 28-14 winners over Ferris, later in the week in the area playoffs though a time and location have yet to be determined.

Leopard running back Adam Berryman was one of two Leopards to cross the century mark with 141 yards on the ground to go with two touchdowns. The junior scored on runs of 38 an 1 yard.

Berryman broke free on his 38-yard scoring run less than four minutes into the game to set the tone early for the Leopards as they went up 7-0.

As good as the Gainesville offense was at scoring, the defense found the scoreboard a few times itself. David Moore and Chris White both returned interceptions for touchdowns. Moore’s came from 36 yards out while White’s was from 30.

“I thought our defense played pretty well,” Hall said. “They made the most of their opportunities.”
