Madill's defense came up with four turnovers and forced a Plainview punt with 3:10 to go in the game to help the 'Cats pull off a 21-20 win against the Indians on the road in the football finale Friday. The Wildcats' offense strung a couple of first downs together on their last drive to add the finishing touches on the one-point triumph. 
Cats' quarterback Colton Clement punctuated a first-quarter drive on a 25-yard touchdown run with 5:24 left. That score came on the heels of a Plainview fumble recovered by Sage Salyer. Spence Weaver made a brilliant catch of a 21-yard pass thrown in the back corner of the end zone to increase Madill's lead to 14-0 at the 1:49 mark of the first frame. The Weaver TD was made possible by an Indians fumble covered by Corbin Larason. Plainview receiver Eli Paul squeezed inside the end zone after catching a Kobe Brewster pass from 14 yards out to close the gap to 14-6 with 1:31 left before halftime. The extra point sailed wide and it remained an eight-point margin.
Plainview started the second-half scoring when Brewster broke through on a one-yard scoring run with 8:49 showing in the third quarter. His two-point run knotted the contest, 14-14.
The Indians grabbed the 20-14 lead as Dylan Lucas cruised down the right sideline on a 55-yard TD run with 5:00 left in the third period. Plainview tried for two points, but was denied by Madill's defense. Clement later capped a Wildcat offensive march on a one-yard scoring plunge with 6:44 remaining in the contest. Carlos Torres' booted the extra point to make it 21-20 in favor of the 'Cats.
Madill's defensive unit shut down the Indians' last drive and drew the punt. The Wildcats concluded the night by scoring 21 points off of the four Indians turnovers. The 'Cats wrapped the regular season with a 4-6 mark overall and a 2-4 record in district competition.
