Rockwall loses fourth straight game to Greenville, 34-28; ending season

GREENVILLE–With the score tied 28-28 after three quarters, Greenvillle’s Dakeiston Williams scored on a three-yard run in the fourth quarter to boost the Lions to a 34-28 victory over Rockwall in the season finale for both teams.

The loss was Rockwall’s fourth straight loss, ending a disappointing season for which the Yellow Jackets (4-6, 2-5) had much higher aspirations. 

The close game saw four lead changes, as Rockwall took an early lead on Josh Broach’s one-yard run. Broach had another big game, rushing for 161 yards on 32 carries.

After the Lions (6-4, 3-4) tied the score in the first quarter on a 38-yard pass to Nate Mason from Alton Dennis, the Yellow Jackets took the lead again when Reed Loftis grabbed a 45-yard pass from Adam Dingwell.

Greenville then tied the score on a one-yard run by Ennis, and took the lead for the first time just before halftime on a 58-yard pass play by Jarvis Drewer  from Ennis.

In the second half, Dakeiston Williams scored his first TD of the night on a four-yard run to expand the Lions’ lead to 28-14. Williams rushed for 160 yards on 15 carries.

Rockwall then came roaring back to tie the score when Scott Loy scored on a 14-yard pass from Dingwell and Broach scored his second TD of the night on a one-yard plunge.

Ed Gates and Travis Shinn each kicked two PATs each for the Yellow Jackets.
