The Wylie Pirates held the high-scoring Sachse Mustangs scoreless through the first quarter.
Unfortunately for Wylie (3-3, 3-6), Sachse (5-1, 6-3) scored on its next four possessions, as the Mustangs won 38-7.
Despite the slow start on the scoreboard, Sachse outgained Wylie 226-96 yards in the first half. The Mustangs finally struck on a 64-yard touchdown run by Alex Orji. He led the team with four touchdowns (three rushing), to bring his total to 42 on the season.
Wylie’s third quarter woes proved costly. A fumble from Adrian Bryant and an interception from Isaac Phe led to two short Sachse scoring drives to extend its lead to 31. Sachse’s final score came after a Wylie fumbled punt return.
Phe led the lone scoring drive for the Pirates late in the fourth quarter. He went 4-for-4 with 67 yards and a 10-yard touchdown pass to Blake Fuller. Phe finished the game with 224 yards passing.
Wylie will hope to bounce back in the final week of the season against North Garland (2-4, 5-4).
