GLENEAGLES, Scotland — European captain Paul McGinley is having second thoughts about a Rory McIlroy-Graeme McDowell partnership in the Ryder Cup.

■ Significance: Tascosa has struggled the past few years to sign their name to a signature win.

Now a Class 6A team (Tascosa) with an enrollment of more than 800 students should defeat a Class 5A team (Canyon). But Canyon, under coach Blake Bryant, is not your typical 5A team, having won 15 of its last 16 games. Its lone defeat was to powerful Aledo in the playoffs last season.
