NEWS AND NOTES:
The Panthers took control of the game on their first possession of the game with a drive that began with a punt that was blocked by Hudson Webber and was downed near the 50 yard line by Nocona. The drive culminated with a 2 yard run by Corbin Young. The Panthers started another drive in the quarter, but Josh Erwin's pass was picked off late in the first quarter.
Paradise's third possession was much like the first with a long drive and short touchdown run, this time from six yards out by Cody McKenzie, Matt Davis's extra point attempt was no good because of a bad snap and the Panthers lead 13-0 at the 7:12 mark in the 2nd quarter. Paradise had another drive begin late in the half and got inside the Indian's 30 yard line, but Erwin had his second interception of the game when his pass was picked off by Shane Bagwell.
Paradise got the second half off to a good start with a 45 yard kickoff return by Cody Hambrick to the 50 yard line. It only took the Panthers 2:44 to score as Corbin Young had his second touchdown run of the night, this time from 10 yards out to increase the lead to 19-0. After a Bradley Bryant interception, Zach Bruton sprinted into the endzone from 33 yards out. Arthur's pass to Borbin Young added the 2 point conversion and the Panthers lead 27-0 at the 2:53 mark. After another Indian turnover, Cody McKenzie ended the scoring for the night as he scampered in from 2 yards out with 30 seconds remaining in the 3rd quarter. Bryant had his second pick of the night on the very last play of the game to preserve the shutout.
