20180907 Football SHHS vs MMHS LG Web-92For the second week in a row, the Sharyland Rattlers found themselves tied at the end of regulation and needing a single overtime period to decide the outcome of their game. Last week they emerged victorious as they defeated Brownsville Pace by a score of 20-17.

Friday night the Rattlers and the McAllen Memorial Mustangs entered overtime tied at 21. The Mustangs had the first possession and they promptly put six points on the board to take a 27-21 lead. Knowing that they needed to score six points to force a second overtime period or seven to win the game, the Rattlers took possession of the ball. However, they could not find the end zone and as a result, the Mustangs defeated the Rattlers by a final score of 27-21.

With the loss, the Rattlers dropped to 1-1 on the season and will be looking to get back on the winning track next week when they host the 2-0 La Joya Coyotes.
