Junior tailback Colton Clement's one-yard touchdown run with 26 seconds left in the game Friday gave Madill its first lead and eventually a 26-21 comeback victory against Tishomingo Friday. The Indians fumbled the ensuing kickoff to the 'Cats and the game ended with a Madill victory. Tish quarterback DeVonte Lawson captivated the home crowd with his first-half performance. He opened the scoring with a 14-yard TD run with 8:47 to go in the first quarter. The Indians would not relinquish the lead until the final minute of the contest. Madill answered with a four-yard scoring pass to senior receiver Joe Avery from quarterback Samuel Bond. Arturo Guevara's kick tied the game 7-7 at the 10:29 mark of the second period. Zac Floyd came in at quarterback when Lawson suffered from an injury and promptly scored on a one-yard plunge with 6:54 remaining in the first half. The Indians had a 14-7 edge. Madill's defense made a goal line stand in the waning moments of the first half. With the Wildcats driving early in the third period, Lawson stepped in front of a Bond pass to return the interception 85 yards for a TD to push Tish's leading margin to 21-7 with 6:28 to go in the third frame. Madill responded. Clement got the bulk of the offensive work in the balance of the quarter. The tailback collected the first of his three second-half scores at the 3:49 point of the third on a one-yard run to tie the game at 14-14. Lawson for Tishomingo finished the contest with 159 yards rushing on 18 carries, but did not lead Tish on another scoring drive for the rest of the game. He completed five of 15 passes for 68 yards. Conversely, Madill kept chipping away at Tish. Clement closed the gap to 21-20 with 8:40 to go in the fourth on his seven-yard run. The point after failed. Madill's defense continued to hold the Indians off the scoreboard. Madill then mounted a 60-yard drive with 2:30 remaining. Bond and Gereall Jordan hooked up on two consecutive completions and then Joe Avery hauled in catches and eventually fought through defenders on his way to a 34-yard gain to the one-yard line to set up Clement's go-ahead score. Bond completed 13 of 19 passes for 151 yards and a TD. He rushed 14 times for 38 yards. Clement rushed for 129 yards on 17 carries. Jesus Perez had seven totes for 44 yards. Avery had seven receptions for 83 yards. Jordan had three catches for 28 yards. Marshall caught two passes for 24 yards and Clement had a catch for four yards.
