The Collierville Dragons took on local rival Houston High Friday night on the road in what turned into a game filled with runs up the middle and penalty flags littering the field. The Dragons struggled down the field in the final minutes of the fourth quarter, with a field goal putting them up by two points and just over a minute
remaining. Houston immediately marched down the field and showed excellent clock control by going out of bounds on every play. The Mustangs scored the go-ahead touchdown and gave the ball to the Dragons with only 22 seconds remaining. With the clock ticking down Collierville's last option was a hail Mary pass to the end zone. The ball came down in the hands of Houston as Mustang fans rushed the field to celebrate the victory. The final score was 21-17. PICTURED: Houston running back CJ Blackfan is brought down by Collierville junior Carson Rees. Blackfan had 153 yards on 36 carries and two touchdowns in the game.
