High School Football: Live updates from Week 5 Abilene, Big Country games

By Advertise,


San Angelo Central and Abilene Wylie played a wild game in the first meeting between the two programs last year in San Angelo.

Central won the game 63-61 on a 40-yard TD pass on the game's final play — all after quarterback Tyler Hill was nearly sacked before scrambling and throwing a Hail Mary to Ben Immler.

Whose prayers will be answered this week as the Bobcats (1-3) play the Wylie Bulldogs (2-2) at 7 p.m. Friday at Hugh Sandifer Stadium in Abilene?

In other Big Country games, Abilene Cooper hosts Odessa Permian in the final tune-up before starting district play for both teams, while Abilene High jumps into District 2-5A Division I play at Lubbock Monterey.

Unbeaten Brownwood also faces a stiff test with Waco Connally coming to town. The Cadets were state ranked before falling to No. 2 and defending Class 4A Division I state champion China Spring last week.

Clyde also returns to the Mustang Bowl to play Sweetwater in a battle between two unbeaten teams that can score points in a hurry.
