Dallas South Oak Cliff seized early control of District 11-4A with a 33-20 win over Dallas Carter last week.
The sixth-ranked Golden Bears (4-0, 1-0 in 11-4A) pulled away from Carter in the third quarter when Barron Perry scored from 2 yards out. Quarterback Semaj Riley, who rushed for three scores, added an insurance touchdown in the fourth quarter.
Carter (0-4, 0-1 in 11-4A) was considered South Oak Cliff’s biggest threat in 11-4A coming into the year, but the Cowboys have struggled mightily with a young roster and are still looking for their first win.
The win over Carter makes 11-4A South Oak Cliff’s to lose, although four teams with winning records – Dallas Molina, Dallas Kimball, Dallas Seagoville and Dallas Adamson – remain on its schedule.
South Oak Cliff plays rival Kimball (3-1, 1-0 in 11-4A) on Friday at Kincaide Stadium.
