It was a back-and-forth battle between Princeton and Lake Dallas during the District 7-5A Div. II football opener.
The Eagles managed to emerge with a 39-31 win at Jackie Hendricks Stadium.
Rain and lightning delayed the game for two hours after midway through the first quarter as Princeton (1-2, 0-1 in district) was driving the field.
As play resumed, Brendon Strickland was able to hook up with Kole Massey for a 23-yard touchdown. After a Nico Ledesma extra point kick, the Panthers were on top 7-0.
