Raiders take one-sided Crosstown Showdown over Pirates

by | Oct 14, 2023 | Latest, Sports

Pirate Austin Fabian (41) zeros in on Raider Kason Atkins (6) in Friday night’s Crosstown Showdown.

It was all Wylie East in the Crosstown Showdown.

The Raiders (6-1, 4-1 District 9-6A) dominated the Wylie Pirates 66-10 on Friday night at Wylie ISD Stadium. Since joining 9-6A last season, the Raiders have won both matchups against the Pirates.

The Pirates (5-2, 4-1) got the scoring started on their opening possession with a 22-yard field goal from Spencer Gilbert. From there, however, it was all Raiders.

Jamal Olford took the ensuing kickoff 88-yards to the house to get things rolling for Wylie East. Unfortunately for the Pirates, they couldn’t find a way to stop East. At the end of the first quarter, it was 28-3 and at halftime, it was 45-3.

Howard Fisher IV threw for 244 yards and four touchdowns. He also ran in for a score.

Kason Atkins had his best game of the season with six catches for 77 yards and a touchdown. Amarean Porter hauled in two touchdowns as well. 

Overall, the Raiders outgained the Pirates 510-99. The Pirates gained 72 of those yards on the first play they ran from a scrimmage.

With the win, Wylie East takes over second place in 9-6A, a game behind Sachse.

The Raiders will battle North Garland next Friday at Wylie ISD Stadium while the Pirates face off against Naaman Forest at Williams Stadium.
