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.
