The Parker Broncs won their fifth straight game and improved to 6-1 overall on the season after thoroughly beating the North Pointe Falcons on October 10 at Joe Bush Stadium in Parker.
The Broncs scored on their first play on offense after Ryan Gray ran for a 77-yard TD and they scored two minutes later on their second play of the game when Spencer Moore ran it in from 17 yards to put Parker up 14-0.

In the third quarter Parker went up 35-0 after McGuire broke loose on a 49-yard TD run. The Broncs sent in the junior varsity team after that and the JV defense gave up two scores, but Parker won in the end, 35-14.
Parker kicker Javier Torres was 5 for 5 on PAT kicks. The Parker defense held North Pointe to 147 yards of total offense and they sacked the Falcon QB five times, two of them by defensive end Riley Fisher, who was named Defensive Player of the Game.
