Plano 43, Lewisville 21
PLANO -- Plano quarterback Connor Michelsen rushed for two touchdowns and threw for two more, leading Plano to a 43-21 victory over Lewisville at John Clark Stadium.
Matt Kuzu added 151 rushing yards, rushing for one score and catching one of Michelson's passes for another touchdown.
Shortly after Michelsen's short touchdown run in the second quarter gave Plano (5-3, 2-3 District 8-5A) a 22-7 lead, there was a 30-minute weather delay because of lightning in the area. After the game resumed, Lewisville's (3-5, 1-4 District 8-5A) Roderick Williams burst threw the middle of the line to score on a 31-yard touchdown run to close the score to 22-14 at halftime.
Plano opened the second half with a 14-play, 80-yard drive that took 7:01 off the clock and widened the score to 29-14. Early in the fourth quarter, Lewisville quarterback DeAndre Grimes led a promising drive deep into Plano territory, but linebacker Kent Bateman intercepted a Grimes pass and returned it 89 yards to increase the score to 36-14.
