Ellis County Football Friday Roundup: Week 4 (Sept. 17)

By Travis M. Smith | Ellis County Sports Sports

For the second consecutive week, seven Ellis County teams picked up wins during week four of the high school football season. District play has also begun for a few programs as we head into the halfway point of the season.

Stats, standout players and recaps will be added throughout the weekend.

As always, fans can catch a full recap of all things Ellis County athletics every Monday night from 6-7 p.m. on Ellis County Sports 1390AM/99.1FM and online at sports.kbec.com during “The Press Box.”


WAXAHACHIE 24, Hewitt Midway 21

A true tale of (almost) two halves unfolded Friday in Hewitt Midway. Waxahachie dominated the first half, limiting the Panthers to fewer than 50 total yards in the District 11-6A opener. But, the District of Doom didn’t earn its name by allowing blowouts.

No. 6 ENNIS 28, Greenville 0

There were unofficial reports of the clock running a bit quicker than usual in this non-district road win for the sixth-ranked Lions — and Greenville was likely happier for it.
