Decatur clinches playoff berth with win over Burk

Published Saturday, November 4, 2017
By Richard Greene

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.

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.
