PREVIEW: Gunter hosts Brock in final non-district matchup of 2023
In a week four showdown, Brock is traveling to Gunter looking for another victory before district play begins. Gunter hosts with an undefeated record so far this season. VYPE DFW takes a look at these two teams ahead of their Friday night pairing:
Brock Eagles (1-2)
With an unusual start for the typically dominant Brock Eagles, the team has a 1-2 record in non-district play. A week one 10-7 loss against Pleasantgrove started their season before they regrouped for a 28-14 victory over Wichita Falls Hirschi. Last week, Brock traveled to a neutral site to battle against a strong Wimberley team; Brock came up short in a 35-27 loss. This week, the team travels to Gunter looking to upset the Tigers in their final non-district game of the season.
Luke Cearley, Brody Woods, Carson Finney, Tyler Butler, Cayden Hix, Tolar Cearley, Cannon Stephens, Cotton Tanner, Vance Gunthrie, and others help lead the Eagles this season. Big-time playmakers, this team is ready for anything to come their way on Friday night.
Gunter Tigers (3-0)
Undefeated on the season, Gunter is looking to remain at the top for their final game before district play. With big victories over San Antonio Cornerstone Christian (53-7), Prosper Walnut Grove (64-24), and Trinity Christian Academy - Addison (38-0), the team has allowed only 31 points against them in three games. They look to showcase a dominant defensive force on Friday night against Brock.
Brayden Hinton, Walker Overman, Cade Dodson, Kane Bolt, Trevor Wright, Paxton Cox, Cameron Cravey, Reid Brackeen, Jadon Weeks, and others are major playmakers for the Tigers this season. This team is ready to continue their hot streak on Friday night.
What To Expect
Gunter is rolling and not ready to slow down. Last season, the Tigers had a close game against Brock, but came out victorious in a 21-16 win. This season, they will look to show up in front of a home crowd and continue their streak of excellence on the field. With a defense that is nearly unmatchable in the metroplex, Gunter can be expected to set the tone early. Looking for revenge while also looking to improve their schedule on the season, Brock has high hopes to shut down Gunter for a statement victory on Friday night. This team can be expected to show an incredible amount of effort as they step foot onto Gunter territory.
Kick-off is slated for 7:30 p.m. at Gunter High School.
