Hail Mary pass helps East overtake Greenville



GREENVILLE — Caddo Mills 34,

Howe 15

  CADDO MILLS — The Caddo Mills Foxes celebrated homecoming with a 34-15 victory over the Howe Bulldogs Friday night at the Ed Locker Fox Stadium. During halftime ceremonies, senior Paige Blakeley was announced as 2012 homecoming queen.

  The game was a tale of two different halves as Howe dominated play in the first half, holding Caddo Mills to only 46 total yards. Howe opened the scoring with a 28-yard field goal by Ryan Haines at the 4:23 mark of the first quarter.

  In the second quarter, Howe went on a 10-play drive, covering 81 yards, and scored with one second left before half. Haines connected with his big receiver Travis Jones on a 36-yard pass to put Howe up 9-0 at the half. Jones ended the night with nine receptions for 156 yards and one touchdown.

  The Foxes came out as a different team in the second half.

  On Howe’s first possession, Fox Dakota Monroe stepped in front of a Bulldog pass and returned the interception 56 yards down the visitor sideline for a touchdown, which closed the score to 9-6 when a run for two points failed.

  Howe responded behind the passing of Haines, who was 16-of-36 for 239 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions. The Bulldogs drove 74 yards to the Fox 2-yard line, where a fumbled snap was recovered in the end zone for a touchdown by sophomore tackle Keifer Rodgers. A pass for two failed, but Howe had extended its lead to 15-6.

  Caddo Mills then took over the game.

Wolfe City 22,

Celeste 21

CELESTE — The Wolfe City Wolves ran their record to 3-5 overall and 1-1 in District 8-A with a 22-21 victory over the Celeste Blue Devils on Friday night.

  Celeste fell to 3-5 overall and 0-2 in District 8-A following its second straight loss by a single point.

  After a scoreless first quarter of play between the two teams, Wolfe City’s Darrell Wooten broke free for a 36-yard touchdown run with 3:16 left in the second quarter. Justin Wilkinson kicked the extra point and it was 7-0 Wolves. Wooten carried 16 times for 126 yards.

  Wooten’s second touchdown of the night with 1:04 left in the third quarter extended the Wolves advantage to 14-0 as Wilkinson again drilled the PAT.

  Celeste mounted a comeback in the final quarter, as Braden Morrow completed a 36-yard pass to Scott Collida, putting the Blue Devils on the Wolfe City 13-yard line. After a Celeste penalty moved the football back to the 20-yard line, Traylon Phillips raced 20 yards for a touchdown and Morrow ran it in for the two-point conversion, cutting the Wolves’ advantage to six with 11:50 left in the game.

  Then Celeste tried an on-side kick that Ricky Lewis recovered, giving the Blue Devils the ball at the Wolfe City 44. Morrow completed passes of five and 18 yards to Bryce Kieffer and Tim Herman. Then, following runs by Collida and Herman, plus a Blue Devil penalty, Morrow fired a 23-yard touchdown pass to Justin Heuber with 9:28 left in the fourth and suddenly Celeste led 15-14 as Blake Garcia kicked the PAT.

  Wolfe City would not roll over on this night as Malik Gaffney completed a 14-yard pass to Cody Harbin, then completed a pass to Tim Lloyd putting the Wolves at the Blue Devil 12-yard line. After a Wolfe City penalty moved the football back to the Celeste 17, Wooten raced for 11 yards to give Wolfe City a first and goal on the Blue Devil 6-yard line. Then Wooten rambled in from six yards out and Gaffney ran in for the two points, giving Wolfe City a 22-15 lead with 6:18 left.

  After a couple of defensive stands by both teams, Celeste took on its own 20-yard line and Morrow completed a 39-yard strike to Kieffer to the Wolfe City 41. Morrow also fired a 10-yard pass to Heuber before throwing a 31-yard touchdown to Kieffer with 2:12 left in the football game making it 22-21 Wolfe City.

  Now Celeste faced a big decision, whether to kick the extra point or try for two. The Blue Devils tried the extra point kick that would have tied the game, but it was wide left.

  Celeste again tried an on-side kick, but this time Wolfe City recovered and then Gaffney kneeled three times to kill the clock as Celeste was out of timeouts.
