Whitehouse, Texas (KETK) — A battle of regular season unbeatens set up one of the most highly anticipated games in East Texas with the Whitehouse Wildcats hosting the John Tyler Lions.
In last year's game the Lions came from behind to defeat the Wildcats 45-38 and claim the district title. This year, was a different story.
After ping-pong-like lead changes throughout the game, the Wildcats were able to hold off the Lions 55-54 and remain undefeated becoming the District 16-4A champions.
The Lions almost pulled of another come-from-behind-victory and went for the two-point conversion after coming within one with a minute left to play, but were denied by the Wildcat defense.
