BEDFORD, Texas - Homer Babcock's 2-yard plunge with 5:09 left proved to be the deciding score as Euless Trinity downed Union 21-18 in a showdown of high school football powers from two states Saturday night.
Babcock's score gave the Trojans a 21-10 lead, but the Redskins weren't done.
Hunter Atyia capped a 62-yard drive with his 11-yard TD pass to Chris Hall and threw to Carson Meier for a two-point conversion, cutting the deficit to three points.
Union forced Trinity to punt with 1:40 left, but fumbled the punt. Trinity's Tupe Saunoa recovered and the Trojans ran out the clock.
About 8,000 watched the second interstate clash in the Southwest Showcase. DeSoto, Texas, defeated Jenks 46-27 earlier in the day.
Union, No. 1 and four-time defending champion in Oklahoma's 6A class, fell to 1-1. The Redskins host rival Broken Arrow next week.
