Daingerfield rally falls short in state title game

ARLINGTON, TX (KLTV) -

Turnovers and special teams errors cost the Daingerfield Tigers a seventh state championship.  Cameron Yoe defeated Daingerfield 38-20 in the 2A Division I Final at Cowboys Stadium.  Yoe led 28 to 0 in the second quarter, before the Tigers mounted a scoring drive.

Yoe had all the momentum in the first quarter, after the Tigers tried to punt from their own end zone.  The snap was dropped and the Yoemen recovered the ball for a touchdown.

Down 28 to 0, Daingerfield senior receiver Edwin Mims took over at quarterback and picked apart the Yoe defense.  Mims threw for 205 yards and two touchdowns, before leaving with a leg injury in the 4th quarter.

Daingerfield cut the Yoe lead to 35-20 after Mims hit Tykeema Wilson for a 10 yard touchdown pass with under nine minutes left in the game.

Cameron Yoe was able to make it a three score game after Michael Evan converted a 42 yard field goal that hit the left upright with just over five minutes to play.

Daingerfield's Shawn Hooks had a great game for the Tigers, scoring two touchdowns. Hooks had ten catches for 154 yards, plus 43 yards on the ground.  Hooks' effort wasn't enough as the Tigers turned the ball over five times.
