The streak is gone.
Texarkana Pleasant Grove won the Class 4A Division II state football championship Friday afternoon, ending a 40-game win streak for West Orange-Stark.
Pleasant Grove scored on back-to-back pick-sixes in the final 30 seconds to finish with a 41-21 win over the two-time defending state champions at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.
WOS, which allowed only nine points per game in a 13-0 run to its fourth straight state championship game, trailed 21-6 at halftime and 28-6 in the fourth quarter.
But the Mustangs closed to within one score at 28-21 with 4:35 left.
T.J. Cole scored all three first-half touchdowns for Pleasant Grove, including a 75-yarder on the first play of the game.
Kavyn Cooper scored on a first-quarter run and Jarron Morris and Blake Robinson caught short touchdown passes from Chaka Watson in the final period to account for the Mustang scores.
