The Eagles dropped their second game of the District 9-6A season on Nov. 1, falling 25-7 to the undefeated Allen Eagles.
Prosper (7-2, 4-2) was unable to get anything going against a steadfast defense for Allen (9-0, 6-0). This inability to produce left Allen with scoring opportunities, which the team exploited, early in the first quarter.
Allen quarterback Raylen Sharpe made his first touchdown connection with Justin Hall with a 20 yard pass that was good for seven with four minutes left to go in the first quarter. The second Allen touchdown of the opening quarter came off a two yard rush by Sharpe with 30 seconds left on the clock, giving Allen a controlling 14-0 lead going into the second quarter.
The two teams shared giving up turnovers to start the second quarter of the ballgame. Prosper gave the ball up on a fumble on the fourth play of its opening drive, and Allen gave the ball right back on an errant throw by Jackson, snagged by Lane Lewis for Prosper.
Unfortunately. from there Allen took control of the quarter and picked up seven more points off a 13 yard touchdown run by Jackson, giving Allen a 21-0 lead by halftime.
Allen scored twice more in the third quarter to seal the outcome of the game. The first came from an extraordinary effort play by Taijon Jackson. Going over two Prosper defenders and snagging a pass one handed, Jackson hauled in the pass and took it 67 yards into the endzone to make it 28-0 Allen lead.
The final score by Allen came off a deep 88 yard bomb to Blaine Greene, making it 35-0.
Prosper played shut down defense and picked up their first points in the fourth quarter — Jackson Berry made a fantastic throw to Tyler Bailey for a 15 yard touchdown reception — giving the game its final score. With this victory, Allen clinched a playoff spot and its 14th straight district title.
Sharpe threw for 321 yards and three touchdowns. As a whole, Allen’s offense finished the night with 521 yards and five touchdowns.
Berry wrapped up with 161 yards and one touchdown through the air. Prosper picked up 276 total yards of offense in the loss.
