Putting an exclamation point onto Homecoming night, The McKinney North Bulldogs put themselves back into postseason contention Friday night, dominating Greenville 45-7 Friday night at Ron Poe Stadium to move into a tie for the fourth and final playoff spot in District 13-4A.
North’s defense was, in a word, dominant, Friday night, holding Greenville to 160 total yards of offense. Greenville was held to 40 passing yards and 120 rushing yards.
The Bulldogs ran all over Greenville, tallying 453 total yards, and was led by junior running back Ronald Jones, who rushed for 217 yards and three touchdowns on the night.
Senior quarterback Ben Dutze was efficient Friday night, completing four passes for 105 yards and two touchdowns.
North came out of the gates on fire, bursting out to a 21-0 lead after 12 minutes. North would go into the half leading Greenville 28-7. The Bulldog would outscore Greenville 17-0 the remaining 24 minutes of the game.
North, now 4-4 overall and 3-2 in 13-4A action, is tied with two other teams — Lovejoy and Wylie — for the final playoff spot.
And North will have be the controller of its playoff fate next week, when it welcomes Wylie East (5-3, 4-1) to Ron Poe Stadium Friday at 7:30 p.m.
