Game Recap — Denison vs. McKinney

When it comes to the second year of the realignment cycle, the reflex is to compare what is happening to the prior season. The schedule hasn’t changed but the teams might have due to graduation or transfers or whatever. But it can provide a road map based on the success or failures from that year. For Denison, it involves looking back at a 4-6 overall season and 2-5 record in 10-5A games. The quick math shows needing to win two more games to get where you want to be. During the first month of 2015, the Jackets matched exactly what they did in 2014. They beat Frisco Liberty and Trinity Christian-Addison. They lost to Argyle and Lovejoy. That brought us to last Friday against McKinney. Denison lost that one last year — in overtime no less. It was the first best chance to flip the script. There was no need for overtime. Denison came away with a 35-13 victory that has the Jackets tied for third place with a match-up against Wylie, another team they lost to last season. Denison can only hope not to follow a flip with a flop.
