Maleek Barkley rushed for 179 yards and three touchdowns to lead Lake Travis (11-1) past Smithson Valley (9-3) 40-21 in a Class 6A Division I area playoff game Friday night at Bobcat Stadium in San Marcos.
Barkley scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns to help the Cavaliers stymie the Rangers’ comeback attempt, including a 54-yarder after Smithson Valley cut Lake Travis’ lead to 33-21.
“I’m proud of our kids, the way we were able to respond after they scored,” said Lake Travis coach Hank Carter. “That’s a big win for us.”
