Horn Nabs 36-35 Comeback
a 21-14 lead at the half, the Lions looked to be on their way to
gaining the first district of 2007. In the third quarter,
Mesquite Horn tied it up at 21. JT answered back to retake
the lead 28-21 with just under a minute left in the quarter.
Things looked even better when the Lions increased the margin to
14 points with 8:17 remaining in the fourth. The Jaguars
rallied back to score a TD and add a successful 2-point
conversion. After a JT 3-and-out, Horn scored the
game-winning touchdown to take the 36-35 decision with 2:14
remaining. JT failed to answer.
Lions Handed 20-0 Shutout
Page passed for one TD and rushed for another to spark Mesquite
to a 20-0 win over John Tyler in the District 12-5A opener.
The back-breaking drive started with a 7-yard scramble by Page,
who then made completions of 17 and 9 yards. After a 15-yard
personal foul penalty on JT, Page connected with Adrian Richards
for a 47-yard touchdown on a go-route down the visitors'
sideline. The Skeeters scored two more times on a pair of
field goals by Bradlee Baladez, from 40 and 39 yards, and
completed the shutout.
