Commerce – The Commerce Tigers fell to the Quinlan Panthers Friday, 12-13. The game was very close, but tight defense from the Panthers and a very effective running game helped secure a playoff spot for Quinlan, and end a 16-year playoff run for the Commerce Tigers.
In other District 10-3A action, Royse City overcame the Rains Wildcats to claim the district title in an exciting game with several lead changes. Final score: 38-28 Royse City.
