Kendrick Mapp’s 25-Yard TD Leads Lufkin Past A&M Consolidated, 71-68, in Four OTs [VIDEO]
COLLEGE STATION -- Kendrick Mapp's 25-yard touchdown run in the fourth overtime sent the Lufkin Panthers to a wild, 71-68 victory over A&M Consolidated on Friday night.
The game-winner came after the Tigers (3-2, 0-1 in District 14-5A) got a field goal on their possession in the fourth OT session.
Lufkin senior quarterback Tyler Stubblefield passed for 562 yards and eight touchdowns to lead the Panthers (3-2, 1-0), who rebounded from their 45-14 loss to Longview last week.
The Panthers posted 749 yards, while A&M Consolidated had 675, which included 441 on the ground.
A&M Consolidated evened the game, 45-45, with 30 seconds left in regulation on a 5-yard touchdown pass from Jaylan Cheshire to Josh Stewart.
After both teams scored in the first overtime session, Lufkin answered Consol in the second OT on a 22-yard pass from Stubblefield to Jamal Jeffery.
In the third OT, where both teams had to go for two after scoring, Jeffery was on the receiving end of a 6-yard TD from Stubblefield, but the QB was stopped short on the two-point attempt, putting Lufkin up 65-59.
Xavier Jones rushed for the Consol TD on the ensuing series, but the pass on the two-point attempt was incomplete, forcing a fourth OT.
Lufkin is off next week, returning to action Oct. 12 at home against The Woodlands.
