AUSTIN -- The A&M Consolidated Tigers went on the road Friday night and snapped Lake Travis' 25-game winning streak with a 30-28 upset at Lake Travis ISD Stadium.

The Tigers built an early 16-0 lead and then fought off the top ranked Cavaliers' comeback to pick up its first road win of the season.

A&M Consolidated scored on its second possession thanks to a 7-yard run by Derrick Dick for a 6-0 lead.

Consol added to its lead thanks to Dillon Moore's 24-yard field goal to make it 9-0.

A 38 yard touchdown pass from Jaylan Cheshire to Josch Motley extended the Tigers' lead to 16-0 early in the 2nd quarter.

Lake Travis will finally get on the board to cut Consol's lead to 16-7, but Xavier Jones answers with a 25 yard touchdown to put the Tigers up 23-7.

Lake Travis seemed to stop the bleeding and pick up some momentum thanks to a 4-yard touchdown run by Shaun Nixon to make it 23-14 at the half.

Mayfield opened the second half with another touchdown pass to cut the Tigers lead to 23-21.

But once again A&M Consolidated responded, capitalizing on another fumbled punt return and scoring on a 29-yard pass, increasing its lead to 30-21.

With 6:30 left in the fourth quarter, Lake Travis went 80 yards on two plays — a 53-yard run by Mayfield and a 27-yard touchdown run by Nixon — to once more cut the lead to two, 30-28.

However the Cavaliers were unable to get one more score, and the game ended in a major upset. Both teams are now 3-1.

A&M Consolidated (3-1) will host Lufkin next Friday (September 28th) at Tigerland Stadium in the District 14-5A opener for both teams.
