MANSFIELD, Texas -- Brazos Valley schools had a chance to own class 2A in 2010, but both Cameron Yoe and Lexington came up short in state championship games Saturday.
Cameron Yoe battled back from a two touchdown deficit to tie their 2A Division I championship game against Daingerfield at 27 with 47 seconds to play on a 22 yard touchdown pass from Jack Rhoades to Zach Brashear.
However, the Tigers Keyarris Garrett got behind the Yoemen defense and Tyler Boyd found him open for a 69 yard touchdown with just 26 seconds to play, and Daingerfield held on to win their third state title in a row 33-27.
Cameron head coach Rick Rhoades said, "I'm proud of our kids. I said all along we've got a very, very special group of young men. Tonight we didn't make the plays we needed to to win the ballgame. We gave up some big pass plays and we had the ball down at the one yard line and didn't score and we didn't make the plays, they did, all the credit goes to them."
The Yoemen end a great season 14-1.
Earlier in the afternoon the Idalou defense shut down the high powered Lexington offense and won the 2A Division II championship 20-3.
Despite the loss, Lexington head coach Jason Holcomb had nothing but praise for 14-1 Eagles.
"I just think they're a very unselfish bunch of kids," said Holcomb. "They work real hard and they left everything they had out on the field every day in practice and all year long and every game. They carried themselves with class and integrity and I appreciate everything they've done. Great bunch of kids."
