SULPHUR SPRINGS, Texas (KETK) – The Gladewater Bears saw a chance to send the program to its first state semifinal appearance in 30 years.
But it was not to be.
After a 9-yard TD pass from Tristan Holmes to Jaylin Robertson that brought Gladewater within a point at 35-34 in the second overtime, the Bears went for two, looking to win it. But Holmes’ pass intended for D.J. Allen was broken up by Cardinals linebacker Jackson Lipscomb as Pottsboro kept its perfect record intact, while ending a fantastic season for Gladewater at 10-4.
The Bears trailed 21-7 midway through the fourth quarter, but made a valiant comeback, scoring twice to send the game to overtime.
