HOUSTON – Kinkaid is just unstoppable.

The Falcons’ football program has historically been known to win titles – 29 entering this year’s SPC Championship game – but the last few years have been special.

After having a six-season drought without a title, 2004-2009, Episcopal had won five SPC Championships in the last eight seasons heading into Saturday’s title game and weren’t looking to slow down.

Zach Daniel threw for 214 yards and four scores, Victor Garza had seven catches for 119 yards and three touchdowns, Jordan Williams had 202 yards rushing and rushing, passing and receiving scores and Kinkaid defeated Episcopal 41-21 for the 2018 SPC 4A State Championship at Delmar Stadium.

“Tonight was just thrilling for me,” Williams said. “I was out there playing for my bother. You don’t know how much passion I was playing with out there. I just wanted to win it for my brother. I’m so happy right now.”

SUGAR LAND – The Elkins Knights exploded for 28 unanswered points in the second half Saturday afternoon at Mercer Stadium, prevailing 35-21 to earn the last available playoff spot in District 20-6A. Quarterback Cameron George threw for two touchdowns and ran for two others, with the last one covering 58 yards and slamming the door with 42 seconds remaining.

Elkins’ dominant second half performance was stunning because the Bulldogs had their way in the first two quarters. After Knights’ kicker Ethan Henry missed a 28-yard field goal wide left with 3:40 left in the first, Austin QB Trey Larsen lofted a 46-yard rainbow TD bomb to Troy Omeire. The ‘Dawgs led 7-0 with 1:44 remaining.

The ‘Dawgs domination and the Knights’ frustration continued. George lifted an even longer and more beautiful pass to Kolby White for an apparent 70-yard score, but offensive holding nullified it. After the Knights punted it away and the second quarter began, Austin’s Moise Tezzo scored the first of his two TDs with 7:31 left in the half and the Bulldogs were on top 14-0.

The only memorable moment the Knights’ offense had in the first half was George’s 20-yard strike to Mike Granson that narrowed the gap to 14-7. On their next possession, with an opportunity to drive for a tying touchdown, George threw late over the middle where Omeire intercepted and returned the ball to the ‘Dawgs’ 29.

With less than two minutes left before intermission, Tezzo broke at least three tackles and outran the Knights’ secondary for a 72-yard TD, his ninth and longest of the season. When the first half dust settled, Austin was on top 21-7.

Omeire’s second interception of the game stopped the Knights’ first drive of the third quarter, but the Elkins defense forced a three-and-out.
