Senior B.J. Boyd came up with three big scoring plays to spark the Palo Alto offense in a high-scoring victory over visiting Wilcox on Friday night in SCVAL De Anza Division action. Boyd returned a kickoff 80 yards and caught touchdown passes of 48 and 36 yards as the Vikings improved to 2-0 in the division (4-1 overall) heading into next Friday’s showdown with host Los Gatos.

After giving up a 60-yard scoring play to open the game, the Vikings bounced back with 35 unanswered points to grab a 34-7 halftime lead. Boyd got it started with his kickoff return, Morris Gates-Mouton gave Paly the lead for good with a 56-yard TD, Dre Hill raced 69 yards for another score and then Boyd caught his two TD passes from sophomore quarterback Keller Chryst, who completed seven of 19 passes for 187 yards.
