Click or tap here to view the box score ARLINGTON — Nothing comes easy in the Texas high school football playoffs. Not even with a seemingly insurmountable 13-point lead and less than three minutes remaining. Waxahachie had to thwart a last-ditch drive by Rockwall in the final minute and had to survive a last-second Hail Mary to escape with a 31-25 win Friday night in a Class 6A Division I area-round playoff game at Globe Life Field. 'In 6A period you can never rest. There are great football teams every week in this state,' Waxahachie coach Shane Tolleson said.
