Wylie Maroon 21, McKinney North 12 —The Maroon team played a solid game against North to come away with a good victory. The defense, led by linebacker, Trey Adams III, and defensive lineman James Taylor, played extremely well; rarely did they allow North to cross midfield. The Maroon offense was led by running back William Perry, who broke several long runs and scored all three touchdowns for the Pirates behind excellent blocking from the offensive line.
Wylie White 26, McKinney North 0 — Chris Washington scored all four touchdowns for the Pirates and the offensive line did a great job blocking for him. The defense played really, with Colton Bright and Zach Parish each had several big tackles for the Pirates.
McKinney North 21, Wylie Black 14 —Wylie started off slow, but rallied to tie the game 14-14, with a chance to take the lead. Unfortunately, untimely mistakes and turnovers allowed the Bulldogs to gain the upper hand and hold on, as the Pirates’ last comeback attempt came up short. Notable players for Wylie receiver Mykal Ford, running back Keenan Lewis, receiver Aaron Henry, linebacker Ralph Fandino and defensive back Chandler McMullin.
