A 21-yard touchdown pass from Wilson to Landon Farco followed by a 56-yard score by Landon Ramson-Goelz with less than three minutes left in the first half gave Byron Nelson a comfortable cushion and a fire to finish the rest of the game strong.
In the first drive of the second half, Wilson found Ramson-Goelz to extend the lead 27-0, giving the Bobcats enough of a lead to make it nearly impossible for a comeback finish from Plano. Despite an 11-yard fumble return by the Wildcats' Daniel Bennett, Plano's efforts at bringing the game back within reach weren't successful.
