Madill scratched its way to 21 straight points that began with Carlos Torres' 42-yard field goal with 11:09 remaining in the first half. Torres booted his second field goal as his 37-yard try sailed through the uprights with 1:49 left before halftime. The district foes retreated to the locker room at the half with Sulphur on top, 14-6.
The 'Cats continued its assault on the scoreboard in the second half as Micah Cooper slashed and dashed his way to paydirt on a 37-yard run with 10:06 showing in the third quarter. Colton Clement plunged into the end zone to even the score, 14-14. Momentum built for Madill as Clement burst through the 'Dogs' defense on a 49-yard TD run. Torres' extra point provided the 'Cats' the 21-14 lead with 6:22 to go in the third stanza. The score held until Sulphur's McGruder caught a pass, broke free and scored from 63 yards out with only 2:57 left in regulation play. Sulphur decided to go for the two-point conversion and seized the lead on the extra-point pass to Ray Trent from Palmer. The Dogs clung to the 22-21 lead then snagged the interception with under three minutes left in the contest. The Wildcats' final drive bogged down, Sulphur took the ball and drained the remaining time. Madill steps out of district play on Halloween as they hit the road to challenge Bridge Creek.
