Madill got within a possession of Pauls Valley, but the Panthers strung together a fourth-quarter drive that thwarted the 'Cats' comeback attempt in the final frame. Madill trailed 13-0 when quarterback Seth Coleman sailed into the end zone on a touchdown run with just over seven minutes left to play in the third quarter. Pauls Valley answered with a TD run at the 3:31 mark of the third. Trevor Goff scored the 'Cats' other TD on a one-yard run. The Panthers' drive effectively moved the chains and the clock to close out the six-point win, 20-14.
