Liberty-Eylau Remains Unbeaten in District 13-3A with 13-10 Win Over Atlanta
TEXARKANA -- Liberty-Eylau's hopes for an undefeated District 13-3A championship remain alive after Friday night's 13-10 win against Atlanta at Harris Field.
Javon Rigsby hit Keith Wynkoop for an 11-yard touchdown strike with 33 seconds remaining to lift Liberty-Eylau to its fifth consecutive victory.
Liberty-Eylau (6-3, 4-0) travels to defending district champion Paris (5-4, 4-0), which has allowed 40 points in four district games.
Rigsby completed 14 of 31 passes for 310 yards, one touchdown, and three interceptions, while Wynkoop caught five passes for 136 yards, including that game-winner. Baylor-committed two-way standout Davion Hall caught four passes for 73 yards and ran for a three-yard first-quarter touchdown.
Liberty-Eylau running back D.Q. Steels carried 15 times for 65 yards and caught three passes for 57 yards.
Atlanta's Jeremy Smith ran 20 times for 68 yards, including a one-yard first-quarter touchdown. DeQuan Allen ran for 60 yards on 17 carries.
The loss dropped Atlanta to 5-4 overall and 2-2 in 13-3A. The Rabbits have already clinched a playoff berth along with Pittsburg (4-5, 2-2), which visits Atlanta on Friday.
