McKinney North pulls away from Greenville Lions


GREENVILLE —   Malik Gooden’s 89-yard kickoff returned helped McKinney North pull away for a 31-6 football victory over the Greenville Lions on Friday night at T.A. “Cotton” Ford Stadium.

  The Bulldogs were leading only 10-0 when Gooden returned the opening kickoff of the second half for a touchdown. The Bulldogs scored two more times to seal their second victory of the season against six losses.

  Greenville, which lost a fumble and four interceptions, dropped to 0-8 with its 28th straight loss.

A Greenville fumble, recovered by McKinney North’s Anthony Lozoya, set up the Bulldogs for a 44-yard touchdown drive on their first possession. It took McKinney North seven plays to reach the goal line, four runs and three passes, including a 21-yard completion from quarterback Ben Dutze to wide receiver Gabe Constintine. Justin Jones capped off the drive with a 4-yard touchdown run. Will Ashun’s kick made it 7-0 with 8:08 left in the first period.

  A McKinney North fumble helped the Lions score their only touchdown with a 59-yard, seven-play drive. Marquist Davis got the drive started with an 18-yard run and then fired to Eric Quiroz for a 24-yard touchdown pass. Quiroz made a tough catch while being shadowed in the left side of the end zone. Davis tried to run for two points but was stopped short.

  David Chandler got the Greenville Christian School Eagles off to a fast start in Saturday’s six-man football game when he returned the opening kickoff 73 yards for a touchdown.

  But the touchdown was called back for holding, pushing the Eagles back to their 6-yard line and GCS stayed in a hole the rest of the game, falling 52-6 at Eagle Field.

  “If we’d have scored that first touchdown on that kickoff it might have set a whole different tone,” said GCS coach David Wombaker.

  Heritage dominated the rest of the game, scoring on all seven of its possessions in the first half to outgain the Eagles 296-71 in total yardage.

GCS averted a shutout by scoring on a 48-yard pass from Chandler to Andy Henderson with 1:32 left in the first half.

  Heritage answered that touchdown with a 13-yard TD pass from Garrett Blankenship to Jacob Edge on the final play of the half to bring an end to the game via the 45-point mercy rule.
