Yoe claims third straight title in 70-40 win over Mineola

ARLINGTON  – Tying a record for the most points scored in a state title game, Cameron Yoemen took their third consecutive 3A Division 1 state championship Thursday night, defeating Mineola 70-40 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.

More than 13,500 fans were on hand at the stadium to see the two teams face off, UIL officials estimated.

The 70 points scored by the Yoemen tied the record for points scored in an 11-man Texas state title game, set by Stephenville in 2012 with a 70-35 win over El Campo in the 3A Division I championship.

Cameron Yoe senior receiver Aaron Sims earned the offensive MVP award by catching six passes, three of them for touchdowns. John Washington was the defensive MVP of the game.

Yoe’s 70 points tied the record for points scored in an 11-man Texas state title game, set by Stephenville in 2012 with a 70-35 win over El Campo in the 3A Division I championship. The combined score of 110 points fell 8 points shy of the record set by Sulphur Springs and Dayton in the 2008 4A Division II state title game.

Cameron has been to the state title game four out of the past five years. This year’s trophy is the third consecutive and the fourth in school history.
