Needing a win over Plainview to keep their postseason hopes alive, the Wylie football team closed out the regular season in dominating fashion Friday afternoon, outgaining the visiting Bulldogs 446-114 in a 48-0 victory at Hugh Sandifer Stadium.
Led by senior receiver Jahzair George, who had touchdown catches of 43, 69 and 37 yards, Wylie scored 17 points in each of the first two quarters to take a 34-0 lead into halftime. And the defense completed the shutout in the second half to help the home team improve to 4-3 on the season and 2-3 in District 3-5A Division II play.
Now, coach Clay Martin’s Bulldogs must await the result of next week’s game between Lubbock Cooper and Wichita Falls High to find out if their efforts have been enough to earn them a spot in the playoffs. A Cooper win over WFHS would earn Wylie the district’s No. 4 playoff seed by virtue of the Bulldogs’ 44-14 win over the Coyotes on Oct. 30.
