The football season came to a close in less-than-stellar fashion for the Waxahachie Indians on Thursday night against South Grand Prairie.

Despite scoring on its opening drive and leading after the first quarter, (2-8, 1-6) Waxahachie fell to (5-5, 4-3) SGP, 30-3.

The Indian offense began the game with a methodical 10-play, 67-yard drive that ended in a 31-yard field goal by Crisanto Perez. The kick put the Indians up 3-0 with 7:47 to play in the first quarter.

Unfortunately, Waxahachie amassed just 95 yards and four first downs thereafter.

South Grand Prairie eventually scored on the second play of the second quarter — which was also the Warriors second drive of the ballgame — when Drake Logan (7-13, 71yds, TD) completed a 19-yard touchdown pass to Titus Jackson (3-43). The Luis Cruz extra-point kick sailed through the uprights and put the Warriors on top, 7-3, with 11:11 to play in the first half.

Cruz added a 27-yard field goal in the waning seconds of the half to send SGP into the locker room up, 10-3.

South Grand Prairie went on to score a touchdown in the third quarter and two more in the fourth for the 30-3 District 7-6A win.

Waxahachie senior quarterback DJ Hollywood completed 12-of-his-24 passes for 92 yards, while Casey Kelly completed 1-of-his-3 passes for 12 yards.
