DALLAS — For a while last Saturday, it appeared Plano East was headed for loss No. 2, this time at the hands of Jesuit during The Cotton Bowl Prep Showcase.
Then a funny thing happened on the way to the final gun, the Panthers decided to take over the game.
In doing so, they outscored the Rangers 20-6 over the final two quarters, turning a 24-21 halftime deficit into a 41-30 victory.
That evened PESH’s overall record at 1-1 with Game 3 scheduled for Friday against 2-0 Arlington at the University of Texas-Arlington.
A year ago, the Colts ran roughshod over the Panthers 47-29 at Kimbrough Stadium, and this year they appear once again to be a formidable foe.
That, too, applies to Plano East, which showed considerable improvement from its opening game loss to Duncanville.
