Pirate fans witnessed a battle between two of the area’s best quarterbacks, Wylie’s Jagger Bale and Garland Lakeview Centennial’s Kendrick Sanders.
It was an exciting duel and in the end it was the Pirates (4-1, 3-0 in 9-6A) defeating the Patriots (3-3, 1-3) by the score of 41-29 remaining undefeated in district play.
Both the Pirates and Patriots air game came alive all throughout the field. While Sanders finished the night with more passing yards than Bale, his rush offense could not puncture through Wylie’s wall of defense resulting in sacks, loss of yards, fumbles, and an interception by Pirates linebacker Guy Draper.
In the second quarter, the teams went neck and neck as both teams scored two touchdowns in the quarter. In the second half, each team scored 14 points.
