Wylie sweeps Sachse, Naaman Forest

by | Feb 5, 2023 | Sports

The Wylie Pirates snapped a two-game losing streak and retook their place atop the District 9-6A standings with back-to-back wins.

Donaven Davis led the way with 16 points, while Noah Mallory chipped in 14 including a strong fourth quarter to beat the Mustangs Friday night at home. Sachse cut the lead to five points at the half, but a strong Wylie defensive presence was the difference in the second half.

Following the win Friday, Wylie quickly turned around to face Naaman Forest Saturday night, making up for the missed game last Tuesday. It took overtime, but the Pirates were able to close out the Rangers. Davis led all scorers with 22, while Chris Lewis added 13.

With two games remaining, Wylie just has to win out to claim a district title. With three games to play, Sachse can win out and claim a share of the title, currently with a 10-3 record.

Wylie will Garland on the road Tuesday night, Feb. 7.
