Duncanville led the Dragons 27-21 at the half.

In the second half, Southlake Carroll outscored the Panthers 13-0. Dragons’ running back Owen Allen scored the game-winner.

Allen finished with 192 yards on 33 carries with two scores.

Next Saturday, Southlake Carroll will face Westlake for the state title. If Dodge is back on the sidelines, it will set-up an incredible matchup against his father Todd, who led the Dragons to four state titles, including three straight between 2004 and 2006.

Westlake, ranked No. 7 in the Top 100, beat two-time defending state champ North Shore 24-21 on Saturday. Prior to the lost, North Shore had spent the entire year at No. 1 in our Top 100.
