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.

But the Jackrabbits (3-6, 2-2) had other ideas. Bowie spoiled the Panthers’ senior night, beating Paradise 32-22 behind four rushing touchdowns from senior quarterback Matt Wallace.
