Panthers win finale, in wild one — The Pauls Valley Panthers finished the season winning two of their last three games including a 29-25 win over Madill Friday night.

It didn’t look good for the Panthers early as they turned the ball over on the second play of the game and Madill recovered at the Panther 20. Two plays later Madill was in the end zone on a 16-yard run by Corbin Larason.

Pauls Valley would come back and drive down the field. Junior Meave had several good runs as did Colton Jolley. The Panthers moved from their own 20 to the Madill 20 before turning the ball over on an interception at the 19-yard line.

The Panther defense held on Madill second possession and got the ball back at the PV 27-yard line. The Panthers turned the ball over again this time on the first play of the second quarter on another fumble.

Madill recovered but the Panther defense held forcing a 28-yard field goal attempt by Carlos Torres. The attempt was good giving Madill a 10-0 lead.

After an exchange of punts, the Panthers got the ball back at their own 41-yard line midway through the second quarter. Meave had two big runs of 13 and 26 to carry PV inside the Wildcat 15-yard line. The Madill defense made a stop and force PV to settle for a field goal attempt. Manny Colmenares’ 28-yard field goal split the uprights cutting the Madill lead to 10-3 with 2:40 remaining in the half.

Pauls Valley’s defense made a big stop of Madill and got the ball back with less than 2 minutes to go in the half. Meave caught a 12-yard pass and then raced 21 yards to the Madill 21-yard line. With under a minute to go Carter Tate went 8 yards close to the goal line on a carry setting up a second-and-2 at the 13. Panther coach Bill Green went to his playbook and called a reverse that worked to a “T” as James Jones took the ball 13 yards untouched for the Panther touchdown. The PAT kick failed and PV trailed 10-9 at the half.

Madill had the ball for most of the third quarter. They had a 10-play drive that ending when Matt Perry picked off a Colton Clement pass and raced 64 yards for a touchdown to give PV their first lead.

Madill would then put together a 14-play drive that covered 70 yards and ended with Clement racing in from three yards out.

Paul Valley came right back and early in the fourth quarter, Meave found a lane behind his blockers and went 43 yards for a touchdown to give PV back the lead at 22-18.

Madill came right back and Clement scored his second touchdown of the night on a 3-yard run as Madill regained the lead 25-22 with 8 minutes left in the game.

Pauls Valley then put together an impressive drive. The drive started at the Panther 13-yard line. PV backs Meave and Jolley carried PV down the field. A 25-yard pass play to Taner Campbell gave PV a first down at the Madill 23-yard line.

The Panthers moved the ball inside the 10 but an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty moved PV back to the 21. Jolley got all the yardage back with an 18-yard run to give PV a first-and-goal at the 3.

Tate went forward on a quarterback sneak for a yard but was stopped just short on second down. Jolley wouldn’t be denied on third down carrying the ball in from 6-inches out for the go ahead touchdown and a 29-25 lead.

Madill moved down field in the final two minutes but the Panther secondary came up big late to stop Madill short as time ran out for a 29-25 win.

The Panthers had 374 yards in total offense. Junior Meave led the way with 152 yards on the ground while Jolley added 70. Tate finished 7-of-12 for 99 yards through the air.

Madill quarterback Clement had 187 yards on the ground and 120 through the air to lead the Wildcats.

Both teams will now head to winter sports as their seasons came to a close.
