Prosper junior Javan Henry, right, makes a catch during Friday's District 5-6A ballgame against Allen.

ALLEN — Chalk it up to a weather delay that spanned more than two hours, or just some well-designed running from Allen, but the Prosper football team didn't exactly have its fastball early into Friday's showdown between the state-ranked 5-6A rivals.

Prosper needed a few series to find its footing amid steady rainfall from Eagle Stadium, but once it shifted gears, all three phases worked in concert to produce the signature victory of the team's 2022 campaign — a 29-24 road win over Allen that solidified postseason seeding for both programs in advance of the Class 6A Division I playoffs next month.
