FRISCO, Texas — The originators are going back to the playoffs.

Frisco, the first high school in a town that now boasts nine of them, took care of business in the form of a 21-9 victory over the Liberty (Frisco, TX) Redhawks Friday night at the Ford Center at the Star. It was the third straight victory for the Coons.

Coons quarterback Caden Wright rushed for 169 yards and two touchdowns, including a 78-yarder, in the District 13-5A victory.

Frisco (7-2, 4-2) led just 7-3 at the half. After Frisco had stretched its lead, Liberty (3-6, 2-4) trimmed it back to five points with a 24-yard touchdown run by Dimitri Jones with less than six minutes left in third quarter.

Wright scored another touchdown in the fourth quarter before teammate Connor Swope intercepted a Redhawks pass on 4th-and-goal to seal the win.
