Welcome to LIONS PLAYOFF FOOTBALL! The conditions are windy, but warm.
Our pregame meal courtesy of Burger King! Home of the whopper...hopefully Gadek will have a whopper of a game.
Game factors: the Dragons, apparently win a playoff game every year. QB Bowers is a threat to run, but he has 22 TD passes.
Dragon RB McDaniel is solid, rushing for 1332 yards and 16 TDs. WR Bell has 592 yds receiving.
On the Lion side, QB Wittmer has 14 TDs, 4 INTs, but -15 yards rushing. When he goes back to pass, he's passing, no threat to run.
Star RB Gadek has rushed for 2186 yds wirh 15 TDs. He's a workhorse that hits the holes quickly, then he's off to the races
WR Griffin has 584 yds receiving, but could have MANY MORE. We'll leave it at that.
With all that stated, it will take a nearly perfect game for the Lions to pull the upset. Gadek will be key to open up some passing.
Prediction: Lions 44 Dragons 40 in an upset shocker! Off to the stadium. GOOOOOOO LIONS !!!!
Pregame warmups. Excitement in the air.
Hat's off to the McKinney HS Royal Pride Band! They are having a great season as well. That Bridget Kozlowski is really awesome!
The Lions Achilles heel is the fact Wittmer can't run. With 99.9% of all HS teams the QB can run, so the D guards for that.
However, Gadek opens up our passing game. Even with Wittmer dropping back, the initial read is always Gadek. Our WRs need to catch the ball
Lions need almost a perfect game. It's possible
Good drive but no points
The Lions MUST answer here.
Open it up Lions. Gotta mix up some passing.
Perhaps that is why we don't pass much...
Not a good showing from the Lions so far.
The LIONS NEED some sort of break, turnover, etc.
The Lions, unfortunately, look like they are not interested. Sad, sad way to potentially end a great season.
Lions were driving, but Wittmer gave it away again.
"Turn off the lights, the season's over..."
Everyone knew the Lion defense was suspect all season, but with Gadek's great running, he alone overcame our soft defense.
When Gadek set Solar System tushing records vs Plano East, y'all need to remember Plano was in the game to the end.
Thank God it's almost half time. The Royal Pride Band WILL NOT DISAPPOINT.
Wake me when this nightmare ends.
Worst half this season. The coaches need to take some responsibility. The game plan consisting of HANDOFF TO GADEK was no surprise.
The Dragons were ready for Gadek.
That's our team!! Royal Pride Band!!!
Another great show from the Royal Pride Band, even from the visitor's side!!
All the Lions need: hugest (a word?) miracle in history of the universe.
Good to see the Lion defense come out and play better...NOT.
I wonder if the Dragons even have a punter? Not been needed tonight.
Embarrassment. The only word to describe this "performance."
Coach making good choices. Down 42, let's run the ball and the clock.
I will say this, the Dragons are a dirty team. Unsportsmanlike group of young men. They lose big in the next round.
Our game MVP is in! The punter...
Carroll defense is playing good so far against a great McKinney running back
Jake Fex comes up with the interception after a poorly thrown McKinney pass.
McKinney defense needs to step up to get back in this football game
You have to believe! There’s still a half of Football left to play!
This is high school football and I’m sure their playing their hearts out. Let’s try and remember that and keep perspective.
