Game of the Year: Kerrville Tivy outlasts Alamo Heights 64-62 in three overtimes


Nothing like a good old Texas shootout to possibly decided a district championship outcome in Texas HS football.

On Friday night in a result that could go a long way to decide the district title in District 14-5A-II, Kerrville Tivy outlasted Alamo Heights in controversial fashion 64-62 in three overtimes.

With the score tied at 62 in the third overtime, Kerrville Tivy appeared to have fumbled short of the goal line. It was ruled a successful two-point try, deciding the outcome.

Junior Trapper Pannell, a utility player of high school football in the Hill Country if you have ever seen one, rushed for four touchdowns and caught another. Pannell also played quarterback on the night, splitting time with fellow junior Cole Meiars.

Meiars completed 16 of 21 passes for 202 yards and four touchdowns while rushing for a team-high 102 yards. Pannell completed 8 of 14 passes for 111 yards and no turnovers and added 92 total yards in many varieties.

Occasional quarterback Karson Valverde caught seven passes for 93 yards and a score for the Antlers, who moved to 7-1 overall and 5-0 in district play with the win.

Alamo Heights quarterback Reed Anderson completed 25 of 43 passes for 305 yards and five touchdowns. Three interceptions were crucial for an offense that outgained its opponents 658-514 in total offense.

Pint-sized running back Josh Yzanga rushed for 215 yards and two touchdowns on 41 carries. Alamo Heights fell to 6-2 overall and 4-1 within its district with the hard-fought loss. Alamo Heights still has outside aspirations of a district crowd with Medina Valley (7-1, 5-0) remaining in the hunt as well.
