MIDLOTHIAN–The Malakoff Tigers just keep rolling.
After a perfect 10-0 season, the Tigers set yet another record in keeping their winning ways going in a 47-14 rout of Troy at MISD Stadium in Midlothian on Nov. 11.
The Tigers scored the most points they have ever scored in a playoff game, eclipsing the 45 points they scored in a win over Grandview in 1990.
With the win, the Tigers move on to face the Kirbyville Wildcats in the area round tonight at 7:30 p.m. at Dragon Stadium in Nacogdoches. Kirbyville defeated Hempstead 41-35 to advance.
It only took the Tigers three plays to score on their first possession. After a four-yard run by Breashawn Williams and a false start penalty, the Tigers went to the air. Quarterback Judd Miller connected with wide receiver Tyler Russell on a 92-yard touchdown pass. The extra point attempt was blocked, leaving the score at 6-0.
After a three-and-out by Troy, the Tigers took over on their own 28 yard line. On this possession, they did most of their damage on the ground. Q.T. Barker had a 20-yard run, Jaquaylon Hart ran for 10 yards, and then Williams finished off the drive with a two-yard touchdown run as well as the two point conversion to put the Tigers up 14-0 with 4:08 left in the first quarter.
The defense helped to do its part in the win on the next possession, as the defense forced and then recovered a fumble at the Trojan 35-yard line. Four plays later the Tigers had a 17-0 lead on an Everardo Garcia 22-yard field goal.
The Tigers added to their lead early in the second quarter when Williams scored on a five-yard run. A 46-yard pass from Miller to Russell set up the score.
Troy finally broke through on its next drive. The Trojans went on a 12-play 62-yard drive, capped off by a one-yard touchdown run from Riley Seiter. Anthony Avila added the extra point for a 24-7 score. After the Trojans forced the Tigers to punt on their next possession, Troy cut the margin to 10 on a 35-yard scamper from Tyler Welch on a reverse. The Avila extra point made the score 24-14 with 2:18 left in the half.
The Tigers would not let the Trojans get any closer, exploding for 16 points in the last two minutes of the half.
Malakoff started its next possession at its own 38-yard line. It only took one play and 16 seconds for the Tigers to put another score on the board. Miller hit Hart with a short pass, and the receiver dodged and weaved his way into the end zone from 62 yards out. Garcia’s extra point made it 31-14 with 2:02 remaining in the half.
The defense stepped up again when Chase Busch stepped in front of a Troy pass for an interception.
The Tigers would fumble on the next play however, giving the ball to the Trojans at their own one yard line.
The defense again was up to the task, tackling Seiter in the end zone for a safety and a 33-14 lead.
On the kickoff by the Trojans, Russell struck again, taking the kickoff back 59-yards for a touchdown and a 40-14 lead heading into halftime.
The final points of the game would be scored in the third quarter. Miller threw his third touchdown pass of the game, connecting with Hart again for a nine-yard score.
Russell would add an interception in the fourth quarter.
Miller was 14-23 passing for 323 yards and three scores. He also threw two interceptions. Russell had five catches for 173 yards and a touchdown. Hart caught five passes for 88 yards and two scores. Barker finished the night with four catches and 63 yards. Williams ran for 93 yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries.
The defense forced three turnovers- two interceptions and one fumble recovery- to aid in the win.
The Tigers move to 11-0 on the season and are looking for their second area championship in their game with Kirbyville.
The first win for the Tigers in the area round came in 2013 when the Tigers beat Van Alstyne 38-25.
The winner of tonight’s game will advance to the regional round of the playoffs.

MALAKOFF—Malakoff City Council members granted two requests for special use permits to citizens during its Nov. 14 meeting. The Zoning Board recommended fulfilling Francis Caro’s request to place a manufactured home at 109 N. Cole St., having met all requirements. Councilwoman Jerrilyn Tarver said she was excited for Caro’s getting a new home.
Also, Helen Richardson was granted a special use permit to erect a portable building on South Lincoln Street to be used as a church building. The Zoning Board recommended the permit to the council.
Board members also discussed the need for some prohibitions for heavy truck traffic using North Smith Street to get materials to a construction site just north of town. The posting of “No thoroughfare” signs to installing speed bumps were discussed. Interim-police Chief Lloyd Thomas said he has spoken with the construction project managers and developer about directing trucks to circumvent the town on two other possible routes rather than traveling through a residential neighborhood, lacking sidewalks and inhabited by children and senior citizens. “Since then traffic has decreased through the area,” Thomas noted. “However a sign and an ordinance would empower law enforcement to issue citations,” he said.
“Rest assured, something will be done to ensure the safety of residents,” Pagitt said, following a unanimous vote to adopt an ordinance prohibiting truck traffic there.
In other business, council members:
Awarded contracts to Public Management and KSA Engineering pertaining to the application for a Texas Department of Agriculture Texas Community Development Block Grant. A representative of Public Management explained that the process now requires applicants to name their contractors before being given a grant, to help with the grant-writing process. Should the city not receive a grant, the contracts become void, he explained. The deadline for the grant request is Feb. 9, 1917. The city has several utility development projects that would qualify for the matching grant program up to $275,000.
Agreed to become a member of the 2017 Electric Reliability Council of Texas, Inc. (ERCOT) to receive member services benefits at a cost of $100 per year. One noted benefit would stabilize energy rates.
Approved the minutes of meeting held on Oct. 17 and Nov. 1.
Agreed to pay the city’s obligations for October.

ATHENS—Hoping for a favorable interest rate, the Athens City Council decided to go ahead with its plan to issue certificates of obligation to fund the much-needed overhaul of the Cain Center and to rebuild the Texan Theater.
During the Oct. 24 meeting, the council approved moving forward with a $12.5 million loan, hoping to capture an interest rate of three percent or lower. The bond’s pricing date is anticipated for Dec. 12. The city is required to publish its intent at least 30 days before issuing the certificates.
During an August public meeting and workshop, city officials presented a slide presentation of the repairs needed at the beleaguered civic center, which it had recently taken over. The bottom line of the presentation was that the city had funding options that the privately owned and operated center did not. Repairs are estimated to cost $12.8 million, of which $10.5 million is being sought through certificates of obligation.
The engineering and then repair work is to begin January2017, according to City Manager Philip Rodriguez. The council members at the same August meeting decided to use some of the funding to rebuild the Texan Theater. On Oct. 24, $1.4 million of the loan was allocated for this purpose.
The Texan will deliver a venue for civic events near the courthouse square which would help invigorate downtown with greater economic growth, council members noted in August.
Plans call for the long building with two-level roofing to allow for a panel of high windows for lighting with rooftop a/c units and could be rebuilt and opened within a year’s time. The 6,700 square foot space prices out at around $166 per square foot and holds between 250 and 400 people, depending on the sitting and standing arrangements.
This could be the next jewel in Athens,” Community Development Director Thanansis Kombos said.
Councilman Ed McCain agreed, pointing out that several global companies are planning visits to the city. “A revitalized Texan could be the reason they say, ‘I want to come here.’” McCain said.
The remaining $600,000 is being split between neighborhood park rejuvenation and much needed upgrades to the city’s water and wastewater utilities office.
Though cities are not required to hold an election to issue certificates of obligation, residents may petition for an election on debt incurred through certificates of obligation. If five percent of qualified voters sign a petition before the pricing date, then an election must be held on whether the certificates should be issued.
The Henderson County Voter Registration Office totals 6,936 registered voters in Athens, of which five percent would be 347 voters.
During the Aug.29 public hearing, city officials reported the city’s financial position as strong with a 60-day reserve and one million dollars in an unencumbered fund.
Repayment on the loan wouldn’t start until 2018 and targets three cents of the tax rate over the next 20 years, which could be transferred from the Maintenance and Operations Fund, securities representative Boyd Landen said.

TRINIDAD–The Trinidad Trojans came into their regular season finale with only Oakwood in the way of them and the playoffs. Unfortunately, Oakwood’s quarterback was just too much for the Trojans to handle, as the Panthers came into Trinidad and defeated the Trojans 61-12.
The loss keeps Trinidad out of the playoffs, as Oakwood claims the final playoff spot from the district.
Oakwood started the scoring early, as quarterback Ethan Edgemon threw a 44-yard touchdown pass just two minutes into the game. The extra point was missed, and Oakwood led 6-0 early in the first quarter.
After both teams had to turn the ball over on downs, the Trojans took possession of the ball looking to tie the score. The drive would not last long however, as the Trojans fumbled the snap, giving the ball back to Oakwood in Trojan territory at the 38-yard line.
Oakwood took two plays to score, as running back Jerimiah Sargent had a 10-yard run, and Edgemon finished off the drive with a 28-yard run to extend the Panther lead to 14-0.
After another drive ended with a turnover on downs for the Trojans spanning the first and second quarters, Edgemon threw another touchdown pass, this time from 22 yards, to widen the margin to 20-0.
Trinidad got on the board on the next drive. Starting from their own 18-yard line, the Trojans drove 62 yards in eight plays, ending with a Nathan Williams four-yard touchdown pass to Raymond Dawson, cutting the deficit to 20-6. Oakwood wasted no time answering, going 43 yards in two plays, highlighted by another touchdown pass from Edgemon, this time from 36 yards out to make the score 26-6 with 5:04 left in the half.
The Trojans again answered that touchdown with one of their own. Ronald Marcus rumbled 15 yards for a touchdown, cutting the lead to 26-12. The Panthers would widen the margin to three scores just 30 seconds later, scoring on an Edgemon 36-yard run, putting Oakwood up 34-12, which would be the score going into the locker room at halftime.
After a kickoff from Trinidad, Oakwood took the kickoff back 65 yards for a score, extending the lead to 41-12. On the next possession, Trojan running back Jerry Bannister had a 16-yard run to put the Trojans in good shape for a score, but the drive stalled, turning the ball back over to Oakwood.
On the ensuing possession, Edgemon struck again, throwing a 23-yard touchdown pass to put Oakwood up 47-12. After a turnover on downs by the Trojans, the Trinidad defense stepped up, causing a fumble and recovering the ball to give the offense the ball on the 30-yard line.
A holding penalty would stall the Trojan drive, giving the ball back to the Panthers at their own 15. After a 13-yard pass moved them out to the 28 yard line, Edgemon broke free for a 52-yard touchdown run, making it 55-12. Another punt would give the ball back to the Panthers, who would score again, ending the game at 61-12 early in the fourth quarter.
The Trojans fell to 5-5 on the season, and 1-2 in district play.

ATHENS–The Athens Hornets sent their eight senior football players out with something special on senior night- a victory. The Hornets overwhelmed Brownsboro 32-13 on Nov. 4 at Bruce Field.
With the victory, Athens improved to 2-8 overall, 2-4 in district, but lost out on making the playoffs based on the points system used by the district.
Crandall’s win over Mabank gave the Pirates the final playoff spot in District 8-4A.
Brownsboro started the scoring when Jamal Bell threw a 27-yard touchdown pass to Clayton Orr, giving the Bears a 7-0 lead. Athens answered right back, as Athens junior quarterback Xavius Fulton scampered for a 65-yard touchdown midway through the first quarter. The ensuing extra point was missed.
Brownsboro would strike again just over a minute and a half later as Saul Williams ran six yards for a Bear touchdown, extending the lead to 13-6. That would be all the scoring the Bears would do on the night however.
Late in the first half, senior running back Noah Bush would score from one yard out to tie the game at 13 going into the locker room at halftime.
It didn’t take long for the Hornets to take the lead in the third quarter, as Bush scored again, this time from three yards out, giving the Hornets their first lead of the game at 19-13. The drive took two minutes and 40 seconds.
Quarterback Javiry Bowman gave the Hornets a 12-point lead with a 20-yard run midway through the third quarter.

MALAKOFF–Malakoff scored a touchdown with 17 seconds left in Oct. 28’s game to topple Teague, 40-36, and clinch at least a share of the District 9-3A championship.
Tonight (Friday, Nov. 4), the Tigers travel to Elkhart for the regular-season finale, looking to finish the school’s first undefeated season since before World War II. The Elks are 5-4 on the season, 3-3 in district play and are coming off a 37-6 loss at Groesbeck. The Elkhart-Malakoff game kicks off at 7:30 p.m.
A capacity crowd saw a scoreless first quarter, which ended with Malakoff on the Teague Lion one-yard line. Bre’shawn Williams of Malakoff plunged across the goal line on the first play of the second quarter to give the Tigers a 7-0 lead. Teague’s next drive, which included a fourth-down conversion, ended with a three-yard touchdown run at the 7:49 mark of the second quarter to knot things up again, 7-7.
Malakoff moved to midfield on its next possession, following a third-and-five first-down conversion from quarterback Judd Miller to Parker Busch. From there, Miller, who earlier this season was named the “Built Ford Tough” Class 3A state player of the week for his six-touchdown performance against Palestine Westwood on Oct. 14, hooked up with state high-jump champion and Tiger wide receiver Tyler Russell for a 50-yard touchdown pass that put Malakoff back ahead, 14-7 with 5:40 before halftime.
Teague responded with a 31-yard touchdown pass with 3:20 left before halftime, tying the score at 14 points apiece. A Malakoff drive deep into Teague territory ended with an interception returned to Malakoff’s three-yard line, with the Lions scoring a touchdown on the next play. The successful two-point conversion with 1:33 left before halftime gave Teague a 22-14 edge. Malakoff struck back with a Russell touchdown catch on a third-and-goal play from the 11-yard line with 26 seconds left in the first half, with the failed two-point conversion attempt leaving the score at 22-20, Teague, at intermission.
A Malakoff fumble at its own 33-yard line on the first play of the second half was cashed in by Teague with 26-yard touchdown pass on a fourth-down play. The Lions led 29-20 at the 9:29 mark of the third quarter. Two Teague penalties, a pass interference call and an unsportsmanlike conduct flag, aided Malakoff on its next drive, which ended with a Williams three-yard touchdown run with 6:54 left in the third quarter. Malakoff now trailed Teague, 29-27.
Malakoff placekicker Everardo Garcia kicked two field goals, a 31-yard field goal with a minute left in the third quarter to put Malakoff ahead, 30-29, then a 35-yard kick with 8:31 left in the game, which gave Malakoff a 33-29 lead. That score didn’t last long, as Teague scored a 58-yard touchdown run on the first play of its ensuing possession, retaking the lead at 36-33 with 8:21 left in the game.
Teague’s fortune continued on the following kickoff, as Malakoff fumbled at its own 36-yard line. But on a fourth-and-goal play from the one-yard line, Malakoff’s defense stopped Teague cold, giving the Tigers the ball back with 3:08 left in the game.
The Tigers faced a fourth-down-and-eight play from the Teague 42-yard line with 1:02 left in the game, but Malakoff quarterback Miller pulled the game out of the fire by finding Russell for a first down at the 31-yard line with 50 seconds remaining in regulation. Malakoff converted a third-down play for first-down yardage with 34 ticks left on the clock, then facing another third down from the 15-yard line, Miller connected with QT Barker, who lunged for the pylon, scored the touchdown to give Malakoff a 40-36 lead with 17 seconds left in the game and moved Malakoff’s 2016 football team one step closer to the history books.

Log Cabin Fire Rescue douse smoldering remains of a seven structure fire on Merrick Street in Cherokee Landing, Monday.

Log Cabin Fire Rescue douse smoldering remains of a seven structure fire on Merrick Street in Cherokee Landing, Monday.

The News Staff Reports
LOG CABIN–Ten fire departments were called out to fight a spreading fire to several structures in the lakeside neighborhood of Cherokee Landing in Log Cabin around 5 p.m. Monday. When Payne Springs Fire Chief Randy Harley arrived, a flash in the second structure caused him to ask dispatch to “tone out everybody,” according to reports from the scene.
The original call directed Payne Springs and Eustace Fire departments to respond to 14497 Merrick.
A mechanical issue caused the Log Cabin engine to fail just before the second structure experienced an explosion. Firefighters on the scene had to fall back until tankers and other departments could pressure up and roll out hoses.
Flames from the first two structures soon ignited neighboring ones and the fire quickly spread, leaving structures in heaps of ash and metal material.
No one was in residences at the time of the fire. At least one firefighter suffered heat exhaustion and smoke inhalation, but no loss of life was reported. By 6:30 p.m. the fire was brought under control and stopped in its spread in a wooded area.
Other fire departments also responding to the dispatch included: Caney City, Gun Barrel City, Mabank, Trinidad, Tool, Malakoff and Southside.
Henderson County Fire Marshal Shane Renberg was unavailable to report his preliminary findings on the cause of the fire by press time Tuesday.

MALAKOFF–The Malakoff Tigers football team rocked and rolled on Homecoming, beating Palestine Westwood, 46-14, to remain unbeaten at 7-0. The Tigers are ranked No. 3 in the state by The Associated Press.
Three more regular-season games remain for the Tigers: tonight’s game (Oct. 21) at West, which as of Friday’s slate of games is 3-1 in district; Oct. 28’s game hosting Teague (4-0 in district); then the regular-season finale, at Elkhart (2-2 in district) on Nov. 4. Those three games stand in the way of Malakoff’s first district championship since 2013 and the second undefeated, untied regular season in school history, the first coming in 1940.
The Malakoff Homecoming matchup with Palestine Westwood was the twelfth meeting between the schools since 1972, with Malakoff now holding a 7-5 victory margin over Westwood with Oct. 14’s win. The Tigers have won four consecutive games in the series since 2013.
Malakoff started the beating of Westwood with a Judd Miller-to-Tyler Russell 48-yard touchdown pass on the first play from scrimmage for the Tiger offense, which set up shop in Westwood territory after Russell ran back the opening kickoff to midfield. Only 16 seconds elapsed from the clock, and Malakoff led 6-0 after the failed two-point conversion.
Malakoff struck quickly after a Westwood fumble on the kickoff return was recovered by Tiger defender Xavier McCullar at the Westwood 44-yard line, with 11:41 left in the first quarter. That drive was capped when QT Barker took a swing pass 10 yards for a touchdown at the 10:22 mark of the opening stanza. The extra-point kick gave Malakoff a 13-0 advantage.
Touchdown No. 3 for Malakoff came with 7:08 left in the first quarter, when ShaZarrion Bailey plunged into the end zone from one yard out. The extra-attempt clanged off the upright, leaving the score at Malakoff 19, Westwood 0. Bailey again scored a Tiger touchdown, this time on a 38-yard throw-and-run that put Malakoff ahead 26-0 with 4:35 left in the first quarter, including the successful point-after kick.
Westwood got its first stop on defense late in the first quarter, then early in the second quarter, the Westwood offense picked up its initial first down of the game. A chop-block penalty killed that Westwood drive, with Malakoff essentially finishing off their visitors with a 61-yard Miller-to-Russell touchdown pass on Malakoff’s first play after Westwood punted the ball back. Malakoff now led 33-9 with 8:10 before halftime.
Malakoff’s defense forced another punt, which went out of bounds at the Westwood 48-yard line. Two plays later, with five minutes before halftime, QT Barker caught a 43-yard touchdown pass, upping Malakoff’s lead to 40-0 (extra point kick good), which stood as the halftime score
Six more Malakoff points were rung up with 7:43 left in the third quarter (the extra-point kick was blocked), when Miller connected with Russell for a 22-yard touchdown pass on a fourth-down-and-eight play. After going up 46-0, Malakoff’s lineup was littered with backups, with Westwood scoring two late touchdowns to account for the 46-14 final.
