Coyotes Start Fast, Struggle Late in Loss at MacArthur

The Wichita Falls High School Coyotes jumped out to a 10-0 lead at Cameron Stadium in Lawton, but the #5 MacArthur Highlanders dominated the second half for a 43-17 victory Thursday night in inter-state football action.

The Coyotes (0-2) got first-quarter interceptions from Pryor Johnson and Will Patrick, the second of which led to a 26-yard field goal from Chance McWhorter that gave WFHS a 3-0 lead.

Late in the first quarter Dylan Sheffield found Chance Garey over the middle, and Garey made a juggling catch before taking it into the end zone for a 30-yard touchdown, putting the Coyotes ahead 10-0.

But MacArthur's Darius Graham answered back with a 12-yard touchdown run in the second quarter to cut the Coyote lead to 10-7 at the break, and MacArthur (1-0) outscored Old High 29-0 in the third quarter to cruise to the win.

The Coyotes make their home debut next Friday night against Frisco Wakeland.

Kickoff at Memorial Stadium is scheduled for 7 p.m.

Warriors Lose at Calvary

The Christ Academy Warriors scored a dozen points for the second straight game, but couldn't keep up with the 8th-ranked Lions of Denton Calvary in a 71-12 loss at Denton ISD Stadium.

The Warriors (0-2, 0-2 TAPPS 1-DII) return home next Friday to host Granbury Happy Hill Farm Academy at 5 p.m. at Christ Academy Field.
