Purcell out-played Madill’s undefeated Wildcats for nearly four quarters before finally losing in the final 7.7 seconds 19-17 at Conger Field.

Purcell drew first blood on a Jonah Woodley rush only to have Madill knot the score at 7-all at intermission.

Daniel Martinez gave the Dragons a 10-7 lead on a short field goal before Madill coughed up the pigskin again.

The Dragons cashed in on a 30-yard Dominique Gavia touchdown run and took a 17-7 lead that looked like it would hold up.

But, Purcell couldn’t run out the clock that was reset several times in the final minute and Madill drove down and scored the go-ahead points with 7.7 ticks left and moved to 5-0 on the year while Purcell fell to 2-3.

The Dragons host Plainview next Friday night at Conger Field.

Wayne remained undefeated crushing Caddo, 49-6 at home. The game was finally put on a continuous clock with the 5-0 Bulldogs firmly in command in the second half.

Up next for the defending state champions is a visit to Stratford next week.

Washington got back on the winning track blitzing visiting Hobart, 45-6. Washington led 24-zip at halftime and eventually 31-0 before Hobart put up a score but it was far, far too little too late for the Bearcats.

Washington travels to Hinton next week.

Lexington ran into a buzz saw at Davis and lost 50-0 in a game that was over early.

The Bulldogs will try to regroup with a homecoming tilt with Kingston next week.
