For a moment, it looked as if the Allen Eagles were on track to suffer their first loss of the season.
That moment has passed.
Allen, behind QB Mitchell Jonke, dodged an upset Friday, beating Plano (Texas) East 38-31.

The Panthers took a 31-24 lead early in the fourth quarter, but Jonke answered with two scores to give Allen a lead it wouldn’t relinquish. He finished the game with 228 yards passing and two scores, and added on 123 yards on the ground and the go-ahead touchdown.
Michael Newsome’s interception sealed the victory.
Allen, No. 4 in the latest Super 25 rankings, will face Wylie (Texas) next week.
