BRYAN, Texas The Lorena Leopards put up a good fight but fell to Madisonville 45-35 in the Area round of the playoffs.
Lorena fell behind 14-0 early in the football game. The Leopards then found a way to answer every Madisonville score with one of their own. Hunter Hudgens and Bradley Lina both led the Leopards to scores offensively as they kept the Mustangs on the ropes.
The 10-point loss knocks the Leopards out of the postseason and ends their year.
