NAVASOTA, Texas -- Navasota overcame a sluggish first half and rolled past Willis 35-7 at Rattler Stadium Friday night.

The defending 3A Division II state champions scored first on a 57-yard Shelton Eppler to Tren'Davion Dickson touchdown pass, but Willis answered, Chris Platt returned the ensuing kickoff 85-yards to tie it up.

The Rattlers missed three field goals and a few opportunities to take a lead into the break at halftime.

Navasota took the lead for good midway through the third quarter on another Eppler to Dickson touchdown toss.

The Rattlers led 28-7 after three and added a Derrion Randle seven-yard touchdown run in the fourth for a little insurance.

Navasota, winners of 17 straight, will visit Coldspring next Friday.

Willis will host Crosby.
