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.
