ARGYLE — Argyle had plenty of firepower on Friday night and blew past Celina to clinch the District 10-3A crown over the Bobcats.


"It’s a decisive victory because they’re a local team who we’ve had a history with," Argyle head coach Todd Rodgers said. "It’s really important to springboard into the playoffs with a lot of confidence and a lot of pizazz."


Argyle (10-0, 4-0) will open the Class 3A Division II Region II playoffs with a match-up against Krum while Celina (9-1, 3-1) will take on Gainesville in the bi-district round.


The Eagles racked up almost 600 yards of offense and needed just two plays to go 76 yards on their first possession with the score coming off a 70-yard run by Ian Sadler.


Sadler scored another two touchdowns in the first quarter, one off a four-yard run after the Eagles took over on downs on the Celina 29-yard line, and another on a 12-yard reception from Brandon Boyzuick.


Celina did fight back late in the first quarter, scoring off a one-yard touchdown run by Deshawn Davis, which was set up by a 34-yard run by Nathan Elliott.


The Bobcats’ second score was set up by a muffed punt by Argyle recovered by Riley Nebeker that gave Celina possession on the Eagle 25-yard line. Jarren Alexander ran in from four yards out.


"We had a spurt right there where we got back into the game and got some confidence going," Celina head coach Bill Elliott said. "So that was a huge play. It was a great play by Riley Nebeker, picking that ball up. I just wish we had done more of it later in the game."


Argyle scored twice more in the second quarter off a 3-yard run by Nick Ralston and on a seven-yard touchdown by Sadler.


Nick Ralston led Argyle with three touchdowns in the third quarter and Hudson Speed scored on a 16-yard sprint with nine minutes left in the game to finish the scoring.


Elliott completed just eight passes for 38 yards and the Bobcats gained just seven first downs


"There were things they were doing on defense," coach Elliott said. "They were pressing up on us hard and with the way they were pressuring the quarterback, it was hard for us to get the ball to anybody."
