ARGYLE - It wasn't the prettiest or easiest route to qualifying for the 7 on 7 State Tournament for the Argyle Eagles, but last year's State 7 on 7 Runners Up got it done Saturday afternoon in the inaugural Argyle SQT. Argyle, which finished second in their pool behind already qualified Princeton was without RB Nick Ralston who was taking the SAT test and their QB Cooper Rodgers was less than 100% as he's recovering from a knee injury.

However, facing the prospect of beating 4-0 Abilene Wylie or face having to try and qualify at another SQT, Argyle stepped up in a big way defeating the Bulldogs 42-25. That win for Argyle meant, Argyle, Abilene Wylie and Dallas Parish Episcopal all finished the round robin qualifying round at 1-1. Using the 7 on 7 tiebreaker system Argyle advanced based on total points, while Abilene Wylie advanced by virtue of their 39-26 win over Dallas Parish Episcopal. Parish Episcopal was the hard luck team of the tournament going 4-1, (including a win over Argyle to start the qualifying round) yet they failed to qualify.

Argyle opened the day with a pair of blowout wins over Boyd and Aubrey before playing several backups in a 25-24 loss to Princeton who qualified in mid-May. Princeton was far from full strength as well as they elected to bring several backup players for reps. Abilene Wylie advanced out of a very balanced Pool B, the Bulldogs defeated Melissa, Sanger and Decatur all by eight points or less. Wylie trailed Sanger at one point in their game 13-0 before rallying for a 24-20 win in a heated contest. Sanger was the tough luck team of the day going 1-2 and having two losses by a total of ten points.
