The McKinney Boyd Broncos celebrated their 2017 Homecoming by evening their District 6-6A record at 1-1 with a 23-14 victory over the Wylie Pirates.

The Mustangs got on the scoreboard first when Blake Post split the uprights for a 37-yard field goal.

 Early in the second stanza, Wylie scored on a short pass to slip in front, 7-3.

McKinney Boyd whittled the lead down to 7-6 when Post hit his second field goal, this time from 29 yards out.

A long pass set up the Broncos' next score, which gave McKinney Boyd a 13-7 advantage at halftime.

The Pirates pulled in front, 14-13, on a short TD run midway through the third quarter, but the Broncos answered with their own rushing touchdown two minutes later to take a 20-14 lead as the third quarter came to an end.

Post would go on to boot a 42-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter and McKinney Boyd put a 23-14 win in the books.

The Broncos (2-3, 1-1) will travel to Plano East (2-3, 1-1) next week.
