The Mabank Panthers’ unlikely rise to the playoffs will have to wait for at least one more week.

With a 28-3 win, the Crandall Pirates (6-3, 3-1) clinched a playoff berth in District 13-3A while the Panthers (2-7, 2-2) will have to try to beat North Forney next week in the regular season finale to do the same.

Mabank was held to just 146 yards of offense and quarterback Austin Craig was intercepted three times.

Mabank’s lone score came on a 20-yard field goal by Nathan Ventura in the first quarter.
