Pilot Point leads 21-18 at half

By Richard Greene
Pilot Point jumped out to a quick lead, scoring on its first two possessions.
After Austin Trinklein’s 43-yard return of the opening kickoff, Travis Garrrett sprinted into the end zone three plays later from 45 yards out.
Pinned at its own 2-yard line after a Whitesboro punt, Pilot Point needed just four plays to get back in the end zone. Tristan Jurecka broke a run off tackle, going 87 yards to pay dirt.
Jurecka finished the first half with 143 yards on nine carries.
A two-point try pass from Garrett to Mason Richey made it 14-0 seven minutes into the game.
Whitesboro wasted no time erasing the deficit. It drove 72 yards in seven plays with Clayton Stringer going the final two yards.
Then after a defensive stop, Collin Kilcrease struck with a 25-yard run to the end zone.
Kilcrease put his team in front, 18-14, picking up a Garrett fumble as he fought for a first down and rumbling 67 yards for the score.
The Whitesboro lead didn’t last long. Four runs for 35 yards by Jurecka put Pilot Point inside the Whitesboro 10. Garrett scrambled in from nine yards away to give Pilot Point a 21-18 halftime lead.
