Argyle wins 3A Division II title

ARLINGTON -- Argyle, which eliminated Graham, the final Wichita Falls area team, from the 2013 playoffs, won its first state championship Friday at AT&T Stadium.

Led by Texas Tech-bound receiver Ian Sadler the Eagles (16-0) overcame a 24-17 halftime deficit to rally past Fairfield, 38-33, in the Class 3A Division II championship. Carthage defeated Kilgore, 34-23, in the 3A Division I final.

Sadler had two consecutive TDs to begin the second half and Argyle prevailed with a late defensive stand at its own 9-yard line as Fairfield threatened to steal away the crown at the last minute.

Watched the game on FSSW. Great game!! Fairfield gave Argyle everything they wanted and then some. Both teams left it all on the field. The difference was Ian Sadler - he is just unbelievable.

Both teams gave the type of effort that one would expect from a state championship game and then some. Both communities have a right to be proud.

Gonna watch the playoff games today, again on FSSW. Aledo plays at noon. They need only 15 points to become the first team in HS sports in the nation to score 1,000 points in a single season.

Aledo will get that 15 points plus a whole lot more.
