Caddo Mills 20,

Community 14

  CADDO MILLS — The Caddo Mills Foxes celebrated homecoming with a hard-fought victory over the Community Braves in the renewal of the annual Highway 6 battle.

  The Foxes held onto a 20-14 win as the Braves were throwing into the end zone in the final minute of the game from the Fox 21-yard line.

  Senior Tabatha Moore was named the Caddo Mills homecoming queen during halftime.

  Playing on a wet field, neither team could move the ball very well in the first half. Community had 135 total yards in the first half while losing one fumble to go with one interception.

  Caddo Mills could only muster 100 yards of offense while losing two fumbles. The teams went to halftime tied 7-7.

  Fox quarterback Erik Richards broke loose on a 36-yard touchdown run in which he had several cuts evading Brave defenders with six seconds left in the first quarter. Andrew Taylor added the PAT to put the Foxes up 7-0.

  Community answered with a 17-yard kickoff return by Corey Rogers. Running back Collin Croft took over with four straight runs, the first for 51 yards to the Fox 17. Then two 80-yard runs to the one, where Croft busted in for the score. Jackson Kane was good for the PAT to tie it.

  Caddo Mills opened the second half with a 22-yard kickoff return by freshman Ttystan McGee to his own 43. Richards and running back David Chandler took turns carrying the pigskin for three first downs to the Braves’ 25-yard line.

  Richards then found Keaton Jones with a back shoulder pass at the goal line. 

Jones fell into the end zone for the touchdown with 8:08 to go in the third quarter. Taylor’s PAT gave the Foxes a 14-7 lead.

  Caddo Mills forced a punt and started another drive that Brave Connor Wiser put a halt to by intercepting a tipped pass midfield.

  The Braves then went on a 10-play drive for the tying score. Quarterback Jordan Graham had completions of eight yards to Tay Madkins, 14 yards to Cameron Wiser and 14 and 11 yards to Corey Rogers. The last pass carried to the 2-yard line, where Croft again scored. Kane added the PAT and the game was at 14-14.
