It’s Playoff time in Wylie ! The Tom Thumb Game of the Week is The Wylie Pirates vs. Carroll Dragons. This is Round 1 of the 6A, Division II Playoffs. The Dragons have a record of 7-0 in District and 9-1 Overall compared to the Pirates 4-3 District and 5-5 Overall. The last time the Pirates met the Dragons was in 1989.
The Pirates have to come out and take control of this game. The Pirate offense needs to come out “click’n.” All week they worked on the “little things” and cleaned up on some areas. Our defense needs to continue putting the stops on plays. They have been on fire and we need to continue to fan the flames.
To the Pirate’s advantage, Carroll’s top player is not playing due to a broken leg and their quarterback is playing with a torn ACL.
The Pirates are going to give the Dragons everything they’ve got.
AHMO ! AHMO ! AHMO ! AHMO !

Offense: Austin Breen and Henry Zuri
