Pflugerville Connally 27, Lancaster 24
WACO - Kenny Defee's 5-yard touchdown run with less than a minute left lifted Pflugerville Connally (10-1) to a win over Lancaster (7-4) in a Class 4A Division I bi-district game at Waco ISD Stadium.
Holding a 24-20 lead, Lancaster was looking to run out the clock late in the game but fumbled twice deep in its own territory. That gave Connally multiple chances to win the game.
Connally was led by senior quarterback Devon Lewis, who ran for 111 yards and a touchdown and also threw for 164 yards. Senior receiver Andrew Hellriegel was his top target with seven receptions for 157 yards.
Davon Hodge hooked up with LaDarius Newbold for a 29-yard touchdown pass and Jaquawn White for a 48-yard touchdown toss to give Lancaster a 24-20 lead midway through the fourth quarter.
