Farmersville playoff rally falls short

PARIS —    Farmersville gave Daingerfield all they could handle, but came up just short in a 41-35 football playoff loss on Friday at Wildcat Stadium.

  The Farmers (7-5) were down 41-35 with 1:12 left in the Class 2A Division I Region II area contest.   Facing fourth and nine, Cole Anderson’s pass to Caleb Twyford was ruled incomplete as he went to the ground.

  Daingerfield (9-3) went into the victory formation and moves on to face Pottsboro (11-1) next week.

The Tigers were up 41-21 at halftime on the heels of four fumble recoveries that were converted into touchdowns in the opening quarter.

  Farmersville got touchdowns from Darrin Pennington (one in the first and two in the third). Erik Patino hit all the extra point attempts.

  At the break, Pennington had 187 of the Farmers’ 222 yards. The Tigers had 302.

  After forcing a three-and-out, the Farmers mounted a three-play drive capped off with a Pennington 35-yard run and Patino’s extra point cut the lead to 41-28 near the middle of the third quarter.

  Farmersville’s defense forced Daingerfield to punt and got it back with under minute left in the third.

Five plays later Pennington scored from 16 yards out and Patino tacked on the point after to cut the lead to six points.

  Daingerfield proceeded to put together a long drive, but were stopped once again on fourth down at the Farmers 10-yard line. On the last play the ball carrier was dropped a large loss.

  Farmersville moved the ball down to their 34-yard line, but were stopped on fourth-and-one.

The defense stood strong and forced the Tigers to punt the ball away, after Nick Davis dropped the ball carrier for a 7-yard loss.

  Farmersville finished the game with 384 total yards, all rushing on just five first downs.

  Pennington had a career high 324 yards and scored all of his teams touchdowns.

  The Farmers’ defense came up big in the second half, giving up just 68 total yards and 370 for the game on 11 first downs. Anderson came away with an interception.
