North Forney Shuts Out Corsicana, 42-0

Last Friday, as the North Forney Falcons football team headed to Corsicana for the final Zone B game of the district season they did so with the knowledge that the result of the game would be meaningless for standings or playoff seedings. The Falcons’ 57-25 win against Greenville the previous week, combined with Sulphur Springs’ 28-21 upset of the Tigers the same day, had already secured the top spot in the zone, and a meeting with state #1-ranked Ennis in the district championship game.

Forney Jackrabbits Fall to #1 Ennis Lions

The Jackrabbits fell to the number one team in 5A football last Friday night, the Ennis Lions. In typical 2020 and Friday the 13th style, last week’s game got started under unusual circumstances with the officials arriving one hour and 20 minutes late. When they arrived, they were given a standing ovation by the crowd!

What a difference a year makes. Last season, in the midst of a two-game losing streak, the North Forney Falcons went to Greenville to take on a Lions team they had beaten handily the previous season. After a great week of practice, the Falcons were poised to right the ship against the Lions, and sail into the 2019 football playoffs.

The varsity Forney Jackrabbits had two formidable opponents last Friday night when they walked out onto the field under the Friday night lights in Royse City: the remnants of an exhausting game the previous week against Crandall that saw an unprecedented four overtimes, and the Royce City Bulldogs that they were facing that night.

**Headline on page one top—North Forney makes playoff berth! A sub-headline stated that “Falcons defeat Mabank, 12—11, Nov. 5 with late-game scoring play.” Quarterback Stephen Buckley led the Falcons on an 11-play, 77-yard touchdown drive that “will live in the memories of Falcons fans forever.”

Growing up in the ‘50s and ‘60s and “loving” BASEBALL, I, like so many of my relatives and friends, had a favorite baseball team and favorite players, mainly from that team. When Houston fielded the “Colt ‘45s,” I had to split my allegiance with the new Texas team, but until then, I was an “All-Yankees” boy!

The Pirates came into Saturday afternoon energized and ready to play after taking off the past two weeks due to COVID-19 related issues. Excitement was in the air for it being homecoming week and the Pirates’ first district game of the season. Also brewing for another generation was the renewed rivalry between the Jackrabbits and Pirates dating back to the 3A days of both teams in the 1990s & early 2000s.

After restructuring the district schedule, including dividing the district into two, four team zones, due to cancellations caused by positive Covid-19 cases at several schools, the North Forney Falcons found themselves travelling east to take on the Sulphur Springs Wildcats in a Zone B game last Friday night. After defeating the Wildcats 70-13 in the final game of the 2019 season, the Falcons leaned on their defense in another blowout win, a 56-21 victory that moved their overall record to 5-0 and, more importantly, gave them a 1-0 record zone play.
