Last Thursday night, the North Forney Falcons hosted Mesquite ISD’s John Horn Jaguars at City Bank Stadium. The game of the week did not disappoint all those who came out to the stadium or tuned into CW33. It was a tale of the defenses and special teams for both teams. Each team has very explosive offenses, but the defenses were at another level Thursday for the Falcons’ Homecoming.
Pirate Stadium was buzzing as Homecoming 2022 festivities got underway. The Crandall Pirates, coming off their first defeat of the season, looked to rebound in a big district matchup with the Mesquite Poteet Pirates.
The Forney Jackrabbits hosted the Lufkin Panthers for their Week 5 Matchup at City Bank Stadium last Friday night. Lufkin entered the game with only one loss on the season, while the Jackrabbits entered the game on a three-game winning streak after dismantling West Mesquite the week before. The Jackrabbit Offense continued to prove they are a formidable force, thanks to weapons like Javian Osborne, Ronnie Harrison, and Kofi Eduful. Lufkin made the nearly three-hour trip and was greeted by a sellout crowd at City Bank Stadium. The crowd marks the second time this season that City Bank Stadium was sold out.

The North Forney Falcons won last Friday night against Woodrow Wilson High School, 41 to 20. Head Coach Eric Luster said, “We love the win, but we still have not played our best game yet. There are still things we need to clean up.” As a matter of fact, most of the coaches felt like there is more in the tank for every aspect of our game.
The Pirates loaded the buses for a second straight week headed to Melissa. Cardinal Stadium would be the setting for the Dave Campbell’s Texas Football Go Route Game of the Week. This matchup would set up who would be at the top of the 5A-2 District 7 football standings. Melissa is the first of a few very formidable teams the Pirates will play in this tough district.
The Forney Jackrabbits made the short trip to Mesquite Memorial Stadium for their Week 4 Matchup against the West Mesquite Wranglers last week. West Mesquite was celebrating their homecoming and entered the game on a three game winning streak, thanks in part to their potent Offense. The Jackrabbits entered the game after demolishing Mesquite Poteet the previous week.
