up 49-45 on Southlake Carroll with less than a minute to go. Can't believe there don't appear to be any live streams, so I'm having to follow it on twitter. I know Wilson has a 76 yard TD reception, not sure what else he's done.
wow, sounds like DeSoto held Carroll 3 straight times right near the goal line to secure the win. Wilson gets to keep shining on the big stage :-)
Desoto won with a goal line stand at the half inch line, sounds like an instant classic,
"RT @RMCx2: DeSoto wins! They stopped Kenny Hill on the half-inch line as time expires!! DeSoto 49, Southlake Carroll 45. FINAL! #txhsfb"
DeSoto stops QB Kenny Hill 3 times inside the 5, and wins 49-45. On to state semi-final against what looks like Allen.

Huge win for Desoto. Southlake has been a 5a power for the last 10 years. To win the state championship, Desoto will need to beat four or five of the top 10 teams in the state. Southlake has averaged 50+ points per game this season.
Next game will be Skyline or Allen who are also both ranked in the top 10.
Looks like it will be Allen, which has a pretty big lead with just a few minutes to go.
Other side of the bracket has Houston's Lamar vs San Antonio's O'Connor. I'm pretty sure DeSoto would be favored over either one.
This Desoto team has a ton of heart. Their quarterback threw an interception inside their own 20 yard line and Carroll scored immediately. They were down two touchdowns with about a minute to go in the third quarter.
Next play: 75-yard touchdown pass to Dontre "All Day" Wilson. (I just made that nickname up -- not exactly imaginative but sort of catchy?)
And in terms of their final goal line stand... incredible. Southlake Carroll is a team that has all the advantages in terms of money, equipment, facilities, coaching staff (number, not quality), and everything else you can think of. Carroll's quarterback is Kenny Hill, 4-star dual-threat QB who has run for 28 touchdowns this season and thrown for about 30 touchdowns. Desoto skunked them on the goal line three plays in a row! Congrats to Desoto -- awesome game and awesome group of kids.

All Day is AP...Adrian Peterson...Dontre goes by Trey.
How about All Trey. I know bad!
Desoto was down at one point 24-10 in the first half but they made a late run to make it 21-24 at half. They didn't take the lead until the fourth quarter after they were down by 10 but they were never down 2 touchdowns in the second half. They got a fourth quarter stop of Carroll and went on to score and take the lead by 4. Then came the epic goal line stand that may go down as Desoto's best defensive stop in their history.
Hmm, I stand corrected. Desoto went down by 10 points after the interception in the third quarter... but came back and won. For what its worth apparently Dontre Wilson went out of the game for awhile with an ankle injury but came back and played well. Hopefully nothing too serious.
Go Desoto Eagles!
If anyone finds highlights please post, been looking for highlights and can't find anything.
One more for everyone. The more I read about this game the more I am blown away at how good a game this really was!!!
Edit: my finger were faster then me attaching the link.

MaxPreps News - DeSoto defense comes up with three straight goal line stops to end the game.

I'm thinking this is what you had in mind....
"It was White's opinion that the key offensive play of the game was his 76-yard touchdown pass to Dontre Wilson in the final minute of the third quarter. The connection closed the Carroll lead to 45-42.
On the previous possession, White unwisely threw as he was going down, the result an interception by Tanner Jacobson. The rare mistake by White set up an easy Carroll touchdown for a 45-35 lead"
Dontre left the game..came back, scored a 70 yard pass and eventually was the reason Desoto won...Dontre is a stud...One of my colleagues was at the game....Dontre is a stud.
Allen gonna beat them by 20...I live there!
In my uninformed, Non-Dallas/Fort-Worth opinion, I think Carroll was the bigger game for Desoto. Southlake Carroll is probably having a better year than they did last year, when they were 5A-I state champions and defeated, ironically, Bralon Addison's Fort Bend Hightower team in the championship game.
Carroll versus Desoto was a battle of the offenses and it's crazy to think that Kenny Hill (5 rushing touchdowns in the game) couldn't run in a touchdown when they had 1st and goal at the one yard line.
Allen is a beastly team though, without a doubt. They skunked Southlake Carroll 0-24 in the first game of the year and Carroll had one of the best offenses in the state.
Should be a good game. Go Desoto Eagles!
Is 5A the largest school classification in Texas?
You know more than me about it. All I know is I got invited to a game after their new $60 Mil stadium opened and they beat the piss out of someone. I think they won state in 2008 as well.
Highlights from the game. Love the run at 0:56.
