Cisco ends Leonard's historic run

Dylan Monck fights for extra yardage on this run for the Leonard Tigers during their state semifinal playoff loss to Cisco on Saturday.
Laurie White King Greenville Herald-Banner

The Cisco Loboes got 177 yards from Colton Kent on just 10 carries, and that proved to be enough to end the championship dreams of the Leonard Tigers, who lost to the Loboes 55-6 on Saturday in the Class 2A Division II state football semi-finals.

Cisco (15-0) will face Refugio in the state finals at AT&T Stadium on Thursday, and Leonard finishes the season with an 11-4 record after reaching the semi-finals for the first time.

“We had a great season and I am very proud of these young men,” Shane Fletcher, head coach of the Leonard Tigers, said Saturday.

Lions fall to Harding in Texarkana Bowl

Cindy Roller

The Harding Bison rushed for 297 yards and scored three times in the third quarter and rolled to a 44-3 win over Texas A&M University-Commerce in the inaugural Live United Texarkana Bowl on Friday at Razorback Stadium.
 
The game was the first postseason appearance for the Lions since 1995, but cold temperatures and a steady rain did not help the Lion (7-5) offense, who completed just seven of its 37 passes and finished with just 100 total yards on the night. Meanwhile, the Bison (9-2) showed little ill effects from the weather, racking up 504 total yards.
