Two teams, 12 players and 247 points in Texas six-man football game

The six-man team from Campbell, Texas, knows how to make a comeback.

The Indians defeated Fannindell (Ladonia) 125-122 on Thursday, the highest scoring game in six-man state history. It breaks the old mark of 232 points, set in 2011 when Fort Davis topped Midland Christian 124-108.

What makes the result even crazier is Campbell (1-2) lost 106-56 last week at Fannindell (there aren’t that many six-man teams) and on Thursday, trailed 72-38 at one point. Entering the fourth quarter, Campbell was still behind 109-94. Fannindell falls to 3-1 with the loss.

The game didn’t even go to regulation length. It was halted after an injury to a Fannindell player with seven minutes on the clock.
