Midway’s Jaylon Gibson outruns runs Mansfield Lake Ridge’s Tylan Johnson in the first half.

A year ago, Mansfield Lake Ridge and Midway engaged in a back-and-forth battle for less than a half before lightning in the area of the Cotton Bowl wiped out the rest of the contest and the game didn’t count.

On Friday night, fans got to see the full show and the Eagles and Panthers didn’t lack excitement.

Lake Ridge scored three unanswered touchdowns in the fourth quarter to come back from a double-digit deficit and defeat Midway, 43-35, at Panther Stadium.
