Teams have the option to play Thursday or Friday night, most going on Thursday because it gives them extra rest going into the playoffs.
Over at Hillcrest, the Hornets and Republic were playing for the Class 4 District 10 championship.
In addition, Hillcrest receiver Dorial Green-Beckham started the night only 60 yards away from setting a new national record for career receiving yards.
The Hornets would strike first, but Matt Futrell throws to one of his other weapons, a six yard touchdown to Jonah Hill, it's 7-0 Hillcrest.
Then the Hornet defense steps up. Republic's James Desjardins rolls left, but Hillcrest's John Taylor chases him down for the sack.
Late in the second quarter- the moment everyone's been waiting for, Futrell throws to Dorial Green- Beckham, breaks a tackle when he makes the catch, cuts to the near sideline, turns the corner, then breaks three Tiger tacklers and scores from 81 yards out.
That run eclipses the old record of 5,807 career yards receiving.
It's 14-0 Hornets at that point, and Hillcrest wins 35-7.
