The town of Rockwall dubbed this one the ""I-30 Classic"" and boy did it live up to that and then some.
Heath strikes first when Zach Evans has a MASSIVE hole straight up the gut from 18 yards to kick the scoring off, Hawks up 7 zip.
Rockwall comes back with a little razzle dazzle when Caden Marshall hits Aiden Meeks who makes a incredible grab in the corner of the endzone, both teams off and running.
Then the future Indiana Hoosier Josh Hoover throws a STRIKE to Jordan Nabors who split the defenders and NO ONE is catching him from there, 70 yards to the house, Nabors with 5 grabs for 160 yards, just one of MANY crazy stats in this one.
Hoover at it again, this time hits Jay Fair and he sheds his defender and TOO is off to the races, Hoover finished with 26 completions for 365 yards and 4 TDs.
Rockwall fights back however with more trickery, Zach Hernandez takes the pitch and then hits Meeks in the back of the endzone for the score, back and forth we go!! Meeks with 3 TD grabd for the game.
Now late in the 4th, game tied, Hoover finds the big tight end Lance Mason who DIVES in for the go ahead score, Hawks can smell the win.
But not so fast, 2 seconds left in the game, Hail Mary coming up, Braedyn Locke rolls right, cuts loose, the ball gets tipped and Meeks is there for the catch off the rebound!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!! To overtime we go, the score keeper can't keep up!!! WHATA GAME!
After the 2 exchange TDs in first overtime, we move to the 2nd, Zach Evans with best Walter Peyton impression as he dives over for the score and the lead.
Yellowjackts must answer, Locke rolls left, tires to squeeze one in but Heath's Layne Horak steps in front and picks off the pass, and THAT'S you ballgame folks!!! Wow! The Heath Hawks come away with the 79-71, yes, that's not a typo, 79-71 victory over their cross town rival, all those involved in awe of what they witnessed.
