Cardinals Defeat Redwater 14-13 win Area Championship

Pottsboro perservered Thursday night in Paris to advance to the 3rd round of the 2A DI playoffs for the 2nd year in a row.  After a 2 hour 19 minute weather delay in the 4th quarter Pottsboro’s defense came up with the biggest play of the night stopping a 2-point conversion attempt by Redwater with 5:05 remaining to hold on and improve to 11-1 on the season.  To start out it was mostly a defenisve battle, both teams got touchdown runs by their qb’s.  Redwater scored in the 2nd quarter on a 12 yard run by Michael Cochran and Pottsboro countered with a 18 yard scoring run with 1:51 left in the first half.  The 7-7 score at half stayed that way until Zane Pritchett ran it in from 4 yards out on the first play of the 4th quarter to make it 14-7 Pottsboro.   Then the cold front arrived and lightning forced the delay, after play resumed Redwater scored to make it 14-13 then the Cards “D” came up with a great stop on the 2-point try as Neo Hudson attempted to sweep the left side. Pottsboro went for it on 4th and 1 at their own 28. Zane Pritchett ran 22 yards to secure the victory.   It’s only the 5th time in Pottsboro history that a team has had at least 11 wins.  Daingerfield defeated Farmersville Friday night so Pottsboro and Daingerfield will play Friday Nov 30th 7:30 pm in Paris.
