ARLINGTON — Not known for a wide array of trickery in its schemes, Temple opened up the playbook and fired everything it had at Aledo to fuel a second-half rally Saturday afternoon that gave the Wildcats a fourth-quarter lead.

Aledo provided the final salvo in the form of a last-minute touchdown for a 49-45 victory in the Class 5A Division I state championship game, but at least Temple left AT&T Stadium without the burden of any unused ammunition in its barrel.

ARLINGTON — The football was in midair, the back-and-forth game was in the balance and the hearts of both teams’ fans were in their throats.

Senior tight end Chris Minter was in the end zone for Temple; senior quarterback-turned-emergency safety Luke Bishop was there for Aledo.

With a leaping interception of Chad President’s deep pass as time expired, Bishop brought jubilation and the Class 5A Division I state championship to the Bearcats and heartbreak to the Wildcats.
