Melissa vs. Stephenville - 2021 Week 15 Football Highlights

Stephenville taking on Melissa in a 4-A Division 1 regional final.

Points were scarce in the first half so when Melissa's Ashton Mitchell-Johnson powered in from the 1, it helped give the Cardinals a 7-0 halftime lead.

Early 3rd, Sam Fennegan hoping to drive Melissa for another score, but Ben Kirbo steps in from of his bubble pass and takes it back 33 yards for a pick six. 7-7.

Late 3rd, Melissa couldn't score a touchdown on 4th down from the 5, so Yellow Jackets take over and Ryder Lambert makes the Cardinals pay. Very next play he heaves it to Coy Eakin who outjumps two defenders and then it's a foot race to the house. A race Eakin would win. 95 yards to put Stephenville up 14-7.

Fourth quarter, Lambert to Eakin again. This time for 36 yards before Eakin gets tossed into the bleachers. Yellowjackets hold on to win 24-21 and will face Wichita Falls Hirschi next week.
