Coyotes Let Fast Start Slip Away Vs Little Elm

The story is starting to get old for Old High.

A fast start, feeling right in the game going into halftime, only to come out flat in the second half and fall behind, leading to another loss.

Thursday night the Coyotes jumped out to a lead against Little Elm, only to see the Lobos rally to tie the game heading into the half, and pull away late for a 59-35 win at Memorial Stadium.

The Coyotes scored an early touchdown after a Daulton Davidson interception set up a touchdown pass from Dylan Sheffield to Chance Garey.

Then, after Little Elm fumbled away the ensuing kickoff, Sheffield found Austin Murphy for another score and a 14-0 lead.

Little Elm answered with a 14-yard touchdown run from Quarterback Devonte Pullum, and a game-tying 2-yard run from Matt Marrs.

The Coyote re-took the lead with a 2-yard run of their own from D'ahshujuan Hickerson, but the Lobos tied it late in the first half on a pass from Pullum to Keylon Reid.

In the 4th the Coyotes trailed 42-35 before allowing a long touchdown drive to let Little Elm pull away, then an interception return touchdown, aided by a controversial apparently off-sides, salted the game away.

The Coyotes drop to 2-5 on the season, 1-2 in District 4-4A.

Little Elm improves to 5-3, 2-2 in District.

    Somehow tying US Open record with final-round 63 wasn't totally satisfying for Tommy Fleetwood; he wanted a 62.
