REL And JT: The Tyler Cross Town Showdown

Robert E. Lee had beaten John Tyler every game of their last eight meetings.
In the past couple of years, it had not been much of a match up. Until now.
John Tyler went into the game able to clinch a playoff spot with a win. A Lee win would keep them in the playoff hunt.
For the city of Tyler, it's the night folks had been waiting for all season.
The defending state champs would strike first and go up 7-0.
But then, John Tyler would fight back.
John Tyler breaks the streak and goes on to win 42-7.
JT now 7-1 overall and 4-0 in district. They are going to the playoffs.
REL falls to 1-3 in district.
