ALLEN – At first glance, Highland Park looked like it was already in midseason form during the first half of Saturday’s season opener in the Tom Landry Classic.
By the end, the Scots had to hold off a furious rally by Frisco Centennial for a 28-26 win that prompted a sigh of relief.
The primary reason was speedy Centennial tailback Anthony Pegues, who was the workhorse for the Titans with 306 rushing yards and three touchdowns. His third score came on his 38th carry of the game – a 1-yard plunge with 17 seconds left that cut the HP lead to 28-26. However, a pass on the ensuing two-point conversion attempt sailed out of bounds, preserving the win for the Scots.
