After a pair of turnovers in the red zone in the first half stopped scoring chances, the Decatur Eagles found themselves trailing at the break 21-20. Decatur quarterback Wilson Hicks quickly changed that with his legs instead of his arm. Hicks broke free on the first play from scrimmage in the second half on a 58-yard dash to the end zone to put the Eagles back in front. Decatur never surrendered the lead again en route to a playoff-clinching 69-49 win over Burkburnett.

With a trip to the 4A-Region II quarterfinal and their season on the line, the Lady Eagles needed a spark. Enter Autumn Finney. The senior captain delivered when Decatur needed her the most, igniting a run that helped the Lady Eagles take the second set and then the next two, defeating the Lady Cardinals 3-1 (21-25, 25-19, 25-20, 25-21) to survive and advance.
