GAME STORY: Wichita Falls High runs over, around Wylie to crucial 41-25 win

WICHITA FALLS — Leading Wichita Falls High 3-0 after six minutes Thursday, the Wylie football team allowed 31 unanswered points over the next two quarters to fall to the Coyotes 41-25 in a crucial District 3-5A Division II matchup at Memorial Stadium.

Wylie, which opened the game with a kickoff return to the Wichita Falls 28-yard line, a punt that pinned the Coyotes at their own 1 and an interception to set up a 22-yard field, looked early like a team determined to even its league record at 1-1. But the Bulldogs had to a settle a field goal after failing to score twice from the 2, and WFHS took it to them from there, building a 24-3 lead by halftime and increasing that to 28 points early in the third quarter.

Led by quarterback Bricen Vialpando, who rushed for 180 yards and two touchdowns on 29 carries, the Coyotes ran for 308 yards as a team, keeping the ball away from the Wylie offense, which struggled to find any consistency until the third quarter.
