Murfreesboro (WVLT) -- Back-to-back won't become a reality for the Fulton football team. The Falcons fell to David Lipscomb Saturday afternoon 32-24 in the Class AAA state championship game.
Mistakes plagued the Falcons for much of the game. On their first possession of the game, a botched punt led to the Mustangs' first score of the game and a 7-0 lead.
Fulton did answer. Terrance Cobb took a short pass from Jonathan Blair and went 57 yards for a Fulton touchdown. The two-point conversion failed, making it a 7-6 game. David Lipscomb led 17-12 at the half.
In the third quarter, another Cobb touchdown gave the Falcons their first lead of the game, 18-17. But the lead was short lived. Less than two minutes later, Jeremy Holt scampered 41 yards for a score, giving Lipscomb the lead back, and back for good.
Cobb finished with 155 rushing yards on 24 carries. He also had 61 yards receiving. His numbers were good enough to be named the game's offensive MVP.
Fulton was seeking back-to-back state titles, and it's fourth overall. FHS won titles in 2006, 2004, and 2003.
