  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.
