After last week's nail biting win over Denton Ryan the Highland Park Scots were matched up to face the Manvel Mavericks in the Texas 5A D1 State Championship. On a rainy Friday in Dallas the HP boys boarded the busses to their last game of the season. For a lot of the senior team it would be the last time they suit up in a football uniform or ever play together on the same field. This game was destined to go down in the history books and the boys made sure of that. In case you've missed the headlines that seem to be on every sports station and news channel, after being down the whole game the HP boys were trailing 39-49 with four and a half minuets left in the fourth quarter. Showing no quit, with a little over two minuets left in the fourth quarter John Stephen Jones runs it in for a touchdown, point after was good HP 46 Manvell 49. Then Hp tries an on side kick and its caught by #88 Saustad. Corwin then brings it down on the 11 and with the clock running out John Stephen finds Cade Saustad again and takes the lead for the first time in the whole game with 34 seconds on the clock bringing the score to HP- 53 Manvel -49. Manville gets on the field and Manville Qb Kason Martin #12 throws a bomb to #5 Jalen Preston who is brought down on the 1 yard line by #30 James Herring and the clock runs out, Scots Win!
