Heath’s offense sputters, but Rockwall’s big plays fall short

(Dallas Morning News) ROCKWALL — If defense truly wins championships, than Rockwall-Heath is in great shape. The Hawks’ defensive unit forced five interceptions and one fumble Friday night, helping Heath stay undefeated with a 21-13 victory over rival Rockwall at Wilkerson-Sanders Stadium.

With Heath trailing 10-7 early in the third quarter of the 10-4A matchup, Justin Peters and Seth Nunnally took matters into their own hands. In less than a minute of play, they intercepted bad passes from Rockwall quarterback Wesley Davis and returned both for scores.

Considering that Heath (7-0, 4-0) was doing virtually nothing on offense after an early seven-play scoring drive, it was critical for the defense to come up with six turnovers.
