Coyotes Fall to Lake Dallas

Dylan Sheffield was due for a bad game, but it came at a bad time for the Coyotes

After back-to-back standout performances, the Coyote quarterback struggled.

Two of his four interceptions were returned for touchdowns, and the Wichita Falls High School Coyotes fell to Lake Dallas 52-34 Thursday night in District 4-4A action.

The loss drops Old High to 2-2 in district, while Lake Dallas improves to 3-2, jumping over WFHS for third in the standings.

 Old High led 7-0 when Sheffield connected with Chance Garey on a 39-yard touchdown pass midway through the first quarter, but Lake Dallas answered back.

Quarterback Dalyn Williams scored on a 1-yard keeper with 2:30 left in the first to tie things up, then Sheffield threw the first of his 'pick-sixes,' both to the Falcons' Roman Mitchell, with 9:26 left in the second quarter.

The Coyotes answered back with another connection between Sheffield and Garey, good for 73 yards and another score, but the extra-point was missed, leaving it a 14-13 deficit.

Lake Dallas struck once more before halftime, with Stanford-bound Dontonio Jordan scoring from seven yards out to make it 24-13 with 1:09 remaining in the half.

Lake Dallas outscored the Coyotes 21-7 in the third quarter, and led 52-20 before WFHS scored twice in the final three minutes to make the score a bit closer.

Old High's road remains tough, with a trip to #2 Denton Ryan next week followed by their season-ending battle with Rider.
