Plano East (0-6, 3-6) lost their final home game of the season to Lewisville (6-0, 8-1), 38-14 at Kimbrough Stadium Friday night.
After a 90-minute weather delay, it was all Fighting Farmers except in the fourth quarter.
The Panthers again made mistakes that led to turnovers, but their heart was still in the game. A shutout was in the making, but the Panthers didn’t allow that as senior slasher Elijah Prince scored two unanswered touchdowns late in the game.
He finished with eight carries for 97 yards and two touchdowns. The continuous flow of showers affected both teams’ passing game as they resorted to their rushing attack. East finished with a season-low eight passing yards, while Lewisville had a season-low 15 passing yards. East had 188 rushing yards and Lewisville with 244.
Panthers’ running back Jaylon Hatcher ran for 124 yards on 25 carries. Farmers’ quarterback Ethan Terrell ran for 108 yards and three touchdowns.
The Panthers will wrap up their season in Flower Mound against the Marcus Marauders at Marauders Stadium next Friday, November 4th.
