Reed sneaked onto the field late, lined up as a receiver on the far left, and took a long lateral pass from Castille. Reed then launched a pass from the left sideline to the right sideline to a streaking Castille, who broke four tackles and scored from 29 yards out to give Rockwall a 13-0 lead with 10:06 left in the first half.

Rockwall-Heath 28, Rowlett 13
GARLAND — With 1:32 to play, Rockwall-Heath’s DeShon Elliott intercepted a Rowlett pass at its own 14 yard line as Rowlett (1-3) was driving for the potential tying score, and Heath (4-0) held on in front of the Rowlett homecoming crowd as each team finished up its non-district schedule.
Jordan Hoy orchestrated two second-quarter drives, each consisting of 9 plays eating up 3:33 and 3:35, the latter with Hoy deftly avoiding a sack and converting on a 3rd and goal from the 23-yard-line when he found Jake Fisher on a seam route to stretch the lead to 21-10. The score right before halftime was set in part by an Elliott sack, the first of two for the night, resulting in a 9 yard loss thwarting a potential Rowlett drive and aiding Heath in getting the ball back in solid field position.
