Malakoff outlasts Brock 23-21 in Class 3A DI state semifinals

FRISCO — A late pass interference call on a fourth-and-7 play from the Brock 11 gave Malakoff new life, and the Tigers capitalized, scoring what proved to be the game-winning touchdown with three minutes remaining to edge the Eagles 23-21 in Friday’s Class 3A Division I state semifinal at the Ford Center.

Brock, which scored with five seconds left to beat Shallowater by an identical score last week, had a chance at another season-extending drive Friday. But after getting 11 yards from Toby Morrison on the first play, the Eagles stalled, seeing their hopes dashed on a fourth-down sack with less than two minutes on the clock.

With Brock down its final timeout, Malakoff was able to run off most of the clock, before sealing the victory in earnest when back-to-back offsides calls gave the Tigers a first down with four seconds remaining.
