McKinney North pulls away from Greenville Lions



GREENVILLE — Wylie East 56,

Royse City 14

  ROYSE CITY — The Wylie East Raiders did just that as they raided Royse City ISD Stadium and handed the Royse City Bulldogs a 56-14 drubbing on Friday night.

  With a total of 1,049 yards of offense between the two football teams, the 70 total points scored should be expected.

  However, Wylie East totaled 657 of those yards and quarterback Garrett McCain accounted for a majority of that total. McCain threw four touchdown passes and completed 21 of 30 passes for 340 yards. Raider running back Jabari Anderson also rushed for 210 yards in the game that probably killed any chances of the Bulldogs returning to the State playoffs in 2012. Receiver Marcel Ateman also recorded nearly 200 yards receiving and caught three touchdown passes in the game.

  Royse City accumulated plenty of yards in the contest, but just could not cross the goal line because of missed opportunities and turnovers.  Senior running back Sam Rushing carried the football 24 times for 150 yards rushing and junior quarterback Jackson Watts tucked the ball away and ran for 140 yards on 15 carries and scored the only two touchdowns for the Bulldogs in the game.

Campbell 45,

Bloomburg 26

  CAMPBELL — The Campbell Indians, playing their inaugural year of football and celebrating their first-ever homecoming game Friday night, beat the Bloomburg Wildcats, 45-26 in six-man action on Friday night.

  “I cannot be more proud of this group of young men than I am tonight,” said Campbell coach Colby Smith.

  Scoring touchdowns for the Indians were Jacob Camp, Daniel Mothersell and Scotty Green.

Camp had five carries for 41 yards and a touchdown, and was 4-of-7 passing for 47 yards and one touchdown.

  Daniel Mothersell ran for 80 yards and four touchdowns on 10 carries.

Green had three rushes for 48 yards and a touchdown, and two catches for 17 yards and a touchdown. He also had a 44-yard kickoff return.

  Billy Rios, in addition to getting eight tackles, forced two fumbles to spark the Indians’ defense, which also got three sacks from Colby Gore, two from Green and a forced fumble and fumble recovery by Mason Mothersell. Junior Vasquez also recovered a fumble as the Indians upped their season record to 2-6. Bloomburg dropped to 0-7.
