Mabank was able to keep the game close in the first half as they trailed 21-7 heading into the locker room.

The Panther had a nice 16-yard rushing touchdown from Clay Gaddis with 8:28 remaining in the first half to tie the game at 7-7.

In the second half, Malakoff started to put on the pressure as Garrian McCallister hauled in a 19-yard pitch and catch from Wolfe with 7:29 remaining in the third quarter.

Mabank marched the ball down the field and capitalized on a 34-yard field goal from Pedro Valdez for the 28-10 deficit.

The Tigers continued the offensive assault as Wolfe, Marcus Dowell and Derric Greenhaw rounded out the scoring in the fourth quarter.

Mabank got one final score from Dalton Reeder on a 16-yard reception from Garrett Holcomb with 3:31 remaining in the game for the 56-17 finale.

Wolfe led the way for the Tigers as he finished 14-of-19 for 270 yards passing with one interception.

Mabank's Corey Thompson went 6-of-20 for 54 yards and three interceptions.
