McKinney Christian evened its varsity football record to 3-3 with a 38-20 win over Rockwall Christian on Friday night.
MCA opened scoring in the first quarter with a 14-yard run by Connor Doyle. A missed point-after made it 6-0. RCA answered, after a 66 yard drive, on an 11-yard scoring run by Daniel Rorie. The missed conversion made it 6-6. Connor Doyle returned the ensuing kickoff 76 yards to Rockwall’s 6 yard line and then ran it in to score on the first play from scrimmage. Sky Walker’s successful conversion run made it 14-6.
Walker scored again for the Mustangs on a 28-yard TD reception only two plays after MCA recovered a Warrior fumble on their next possession. Caleb Wysong’s PAT made it 21-6 to complete first quarter scoring.
In the second, Rockwall took the ball after a McKinney fumble, and drove 41 yards to score. Rorie again took the ball in from 6 yards out. Another failed conversion made it 21-12 to end first half scoring. That fumble, and Rockwall’s ball control offense, kept the ball from McKinney, slowing the Mustangs to only one touchdown over the next two quarters.
MCA’s touchdown in the third quarter was on a 45-yard screen to the Mustang’s Doyle, following a drive-stopping fumble by the Warriors. Wysong was good on his third PAT of the night bringing the score to 28-12.
Early in the fourth quarter, MCA picked up scoring again after recovering another RCA fumble at the Warrior 42 yard line. The Mustangs drove the ball down the field and scored on a 3-yard run by freshman Montana Brock. It was 35-12 after Wysong’s point after. McKinney’s final score came after taking over on downs at Rockwall’s 30-yard line and driving to within range for Caleb Wysong’s 28-yard field goal.
The Warriors weren’t finished and scored as time expired on a two yard run by Rorie. Rorie’s pass to Jonas Poland on the conversion to made the final 38-20.
MCA’s Connor Doyle had 135 yards rushing and 99 yards receiving while scoring 3 touchdowns to lead the Mustangs. Dallas Brock threw for 209 yards three TD’s for the Mustangs. Daniel Rorie was a one man show for the Warriors with 214 yards rushing and 24 passing to account for most of RCA’s 239 yards of total offense.
In addition, Rorie also scored all three of RCA’s TD’s. Rorie was all but unstoppable, but the three fumbles, which were capitalized on for touchdowns, sabotaged the Warriors efforts to keep the game close.
McKinney Christian begins district play next week against Colleyville’s Covenant Christian Academy at HEB stadium. Game time is 7:30 pm.
