McKinney North runs away from Greenville Lions


McKINNEY —   Ronald Jones rushed for 217 yards and three touchdowns on 22 carries to help McKinney North roll to a 45-7 football victory over the Greenville Lions on Friday night.

  Jones, who’s now topped the 1,400-yard rushing mark for the season, scored on dashes of 33, 16 and 30 yards as the 4-4 Bulldogs stayed in the running for a playoff spot in District 13-4A with a 3-2 record.

  McKinney North racked up 449 yards of total offense, including 344 rushing, while the Lions managed just 152 yards as they remained winless for the season at 0-8 with their 38th straight loss.

Jones scored the second time he touched the ball on a 33-yard run set up by a 38-yard punt return from Bryce Balous. Raul DelaRosa converted as the Bulldog went up 7-0 with 8:02 left in the first period.

  McKinney North covered 57 yards in just two plays to score on its second possession after the Lions gambled with a fake punt pass from the Bulldog 43 that landed incomplete on fourth and seven. Jones dashed 32 yards for a first down on the first play and then quarterback Ben Dutze fired a 25-yard touchdown pass to Kirvin Parks, who make a leaping grab in the end zone.

  McKinney North stretched its lead to 21-0, still in the opening period, after Darius Arnold recovered a Greenville fumble at the Lion 38. Jones and Dutze took turns running the football before Dutze finished off the drive with a 4-yard run. DelaRosa’s kick made it 21-0.

  Greenville answered with a 70-yard, eight-play drive. Quarterback Treveon Heard led the drive, firing an 18-yard strike to Tyler Matthews, a 6-yard completion to Riley Cox and then Heard dashed 18 yards for a first down. Heard finished off the drive with a 20-yard touchdown run on fourth and two. Theodore Hughes’ kick brought the Lions to within 21-7.
