Author threw three touchdown passes and ran for another.
Roosevelt’s first three possessions, which ended in an interception, a fumble on a botched handoff and a muffed kickoff, all led to South Oak Cliff touchdowns.

South Oak Cliff turned that McIntyre interception into a 28-yard touchdown pass from Author to Devin Williams.
