The Aledo Bearcats began their defense of the 4-A Division II State Football Championship with a convincing 56-7 win over the O.D. Wyatt Chaparrals Thursday night at Clark Stadium in Fort Worth. The Bearcats got off to a great start with Jonathan Gray scoring four touchdowns and finishing the first half with 189 rushing yards on only 12 carries. Gray’s final touchdown came on an electrifying 34 yard run to end the half. Quarterback Matthew Bishop completed touchdown passes of 11 yards to Todd Christian and a 77 yard pass to Justin Breshears. Ben Jopling also scored on a one yard run in the first half.

Briana SharrattWe regret that our earlier post had Aledo playing Dimmitt in the first round of the regional tournament. The error was due to an error on the UIL playoff brackets, which has now been corrected. We have also updated the information in our video feature
