Mallory scored touchdowns on runs of 42 and 5 yards.Tony Eierdam/The Community News: Aledo senior running back Isaiah Mallory looks for an opening Friday morning during the Bearcats scrimmage at Byron Nelson High School. Mallory scored touchdowns on runs of 42 and 5 yards.

In their final tune up before the season opener next week, the defending state champion Aledo Bearcats scored the last touchdown of the controlled portion of the scrimmage and the last in the timed segment Friday morning in a practice game at Byron Nelson High School in Trophy Club.
The Bearcats will open the 2014 season at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 29, against Cedar Park at Baylor University's McLane Stadium.
"It went a lot like we thought," Bearcats head coach Steve Wood said. "We're green, and we had a lot of guys who were experiencing their first 'Friday night' type of experience. They will have to learn and grow up fast.
"The offense finally settled in after a few jitters, but we still have a long way to go. We aren't there yet, but we will get there, and that's why we have these scrimmages.
"Defensively, I don't know yet where we really stand (until the coaches watch the film), but right now I am not pleased.
"Nelson (in the timed part of the scrimmage) took the ball and drove 94 yards (for a touchdown) on us, and that is not good.
"We got tired, they were going fast (no-huddle offense) and we didn't get lined up correctly for two or three downs and it cost us. We have to grow up; we have to grow up.
