Carthage 13, Graham 12.
DALLAS (AP) - Jalen Claiborne had 158 yards receiving and
Carthage stopped a 2-point conversion with 1:22 left to win its
second straight title, beating Graham 13-12 in the Class 3A
Division II championship game on Saturday night.
Carthage (16-0) has won 29 consecutive games dating back to last
Graham (14-2) trailed 13-0 heading into the fourth quarter
before coming within a point on Cameron Bailey's 1-yard run. The
Steers decided to go for the lead instead of kicking the extra
point. DeShun Williams stopped Dylan Fulford well short of the goal
line on the 2-point try.
Claiborne had a 31-yard touchdown reception and Gary Nutt added
a 15-yard scoring run to give Carthage a 13-0 halftime lead.

No. 11 Lake Travis wins beats Longview in Class 4A-DI title
Michael Brewer threw for 196 yards and two touchdowns to lead No. 11 Lake Travis to a 24-17 win over Longview in the Class 4A Division I state championship on Saturday night.
The win gave the Cavaliers (16-0) their third straight state title. Lake Travis defeated Highland Park for its first championship in 2007 and beat Longview 48-23 last year.
The Cavaliers also extended their consecutive win streak to 46 games.
Lake Travis struck quickly, scoring on its second play of the game when Brewer connected with a wide open Andy Erickson for a 57-yard touchdown pass.
Longview (14-2) countered with a 16-play drive, culminating in a 31-yard field goal from Kyle Jenkins. Jenkins' kick cut the deficit to 7-3 with 1:47 left in the first quarter.
But the Cavaliers stretched their lead to 14-3 on an eight-play, 45-yard scoring march. Brewer, who completed 12 of 24 pass attempts with two interceptions, threw his second touchdown pass, a 10-yarder to Connor Floyd, less than a minute into the second quarter.
Early in the third quarter, Lake Travis went ahead 17-3 on Kramer Fyfe's 26-yard field. But the Lobos cut the margin to a touchdown on their next possession.
Aaron Johnson, who finished the game with 165 yards on 21 carries, scampered 44 yards to the Lake Travis 5. Following a face mask penalty, Da'Cedric Hunt's 2-yard scoring plunge made the score 17-10.
Longview forced a Cavalier punt, but the Lake Travis defense generated a turnover that provided a touchdown. Trevor Gillette sacked Johnson for a 10-yard loss at the Lobo 23 and forced the quarterback to fumble. Austin William recovered the loose football for the Cavaliers and a personal foul penalty gave Lake Travis the ball at the Longview 9.
Erickson carried twice, first for seven yards, and then dove into the end zone from the 2, putting the Cavaliers in front 24-10 late in the third quarter.
Longview mounted a 90-yard touchdown drive late in the game. On fourth-and-goal, Johnson hit Brandon Olson for a 10-yard scoring pass with only 2½ minutes left to play.
The Lobos attempted an onside kick, but Jenkins' boot bounced over the sideline. The Cavaliers took over at their 49 and ran out the clock.

WICHITA FALLS, Texas (AP) — Tyler Boyd threw five first-half touchdown passes Saturday as Daingerfield grabbed its fifth state championship, blowing out Bushland 62-14 in the Class 2A Division I championship game.
The win gave Daingerfield (15-1) its second consecutive Class 2A title.
The Tigers came out strong, scoring on five of their first six possession and leading 34-0 at halftime. Boyd completed his first 10 passes of the night and five of his first eight went for touchdowns.
Boyd finished with 10-of-11 passing for 170 yards and also rushed for 107 yards and two second-half touchdowns.

Cayuga beats Albany 38-24
(AP) - Malcome Kennedy rushed for 242 yards and two touchdowns and passed for two more scores to lead Cayuga to a 38-24 win over Albany in the Class 1A Division II title game Saturday.
Kennedy scored on runs of 68 and 22 yards in leading Cayuga (14-1) back from a 10-0 deficit after the first quarter. Albany (15-1) scored on the opening possession then recovered an onside kick and kicked a field goal before Cayuga had an offensive snap.
After a Cayuga fumble, Albany took a 17-7 lead in the second quarter on an 8-yard run by Elijah Hudson, who rushed for 189 yards and two scores.
Cayuga then scored touchdowns on its next five possessions for its first state title. Traylon Shead, who rushed for 144 yards, gave Cayuga the lead for good with 21-yard touchdown reception with 21 seconds left in the first half.
Shead scored three times to pad his state record of 146 career touchdowns.
In addition to his rushing total, Kennedy completed all three of his passes for 50 yards.
Cayuga lost to Stanford 24-13 last year in its only other title game appearance. Albany, bidding for its third championship, was making its fifth title game appearance, but first since 1991.
