Lions Fall to Cameron…Again

 Teague Lions’ fans stand behind their team through another great season…                                  The Cameron Yoemen scored two touchdowns in the final eight minutes to eliminate the Teague Lions from the state playoffs for the third consecutive year 23-6 at Temple Wildcat Stadium. The game was a defensive matchup for much of the game.  The Teague defense turned Cameron away from scoring twice on turnovers and a turn over on downs.  Cameron had the first possession of the night and immediately stalled and were forced to punt.  Zach Andress had his punt blocked by his own man and the ball bounced up to him and he completed a pass to Jordan Young for a first down.  The Lion defense stiffened and took over on downs at their own six-yard line. Teague jumped into the power running game and the running of Antonio Heard and Tayvis Coleman moved the Lions down the field.  They converted three time on third and short with Hayden Roberts in the backfield as an extra blocker, including an 18-yard ramble from Coleman to the Yoemen 32.  Teague lost yardage on the next two plays and faced a third and 14 at the 36.  Antonio Heard rolled right and launched a pass to the back of the end zone and Tyrese Heard...
