The Timpson Bears varsity football team was in a back-and-forth battle in the first half of Thursday’s Texas UIL Area Round Playoff game with the Jewett Leon Cougars. But eventually solid Bears defense allowed them to break a 14-7 game wide open as their offense would score 40 unanswered points from the late stages of the second period until the final buzzer.

The Bears took a 47-14 win and will next face the winner of Fridays’ game between the Garrison Bulldogs and the Holland Hornets in the regional round.
