Two high school teams in Texas have played a game that needed 12 overtime periods to decide.
Friday night lights burned well into Saturday morning before Rodrigo Carreon kicked a 19-yard field goal to give Jacksonville an 84-81 win over Nacogdoches in a high school football game that lasted 12 overtime periods.
The National High School Record Book lists two games that lasted nine overtimes. The most recent one was in 2006 in Washington when Bothell defeated Pasco, 43-40.
The Jacksonville-Nacogdoches game lasted 5½ hours and eliminated the Dragons from playoff competition in District 14-4A. The game was tied at 28 at the end of regulation play and finished just before 1 a.m. local time.
