The Sachse Mustangs (8-0) pulled out a last-minute win over the Rowlett Eagles (4-4) Friday, Oct. 27, at Williams Stadium.

The lead passed back and forth several times with RHS having a 14-point advantage in the third quarter. With less a minute left in the game, the score was tied at 35 and it looked like overtime was inevitable, but the Mustangs scored with half a minute left in the game for the win.
