Upset averted: Rockwall-Heath survives scare from Frisco Wakeland

(Dallas Morning News) FRISCO – Freshman running back Rico Henderson ran for 116 yards and two second-half touchdowns, the last from 11 yards out with 3:04 to play, as Rockwall-Heath, SportsDay’s No. 4 area Class 4A team, survived a scare to defeat Frisco Wakeland, 22-21, in a 4A Division I bi-district playoff game at Wildcat-Ram Stadium.

Heath (10-1) advances to meet Kimball (9-2), a 34-24 winner over Bryan Adams on Thursday night, in an area-round game set for 7:30 p.m. Friday at Homer B. Johnson Stadium in Garland.

Wakeland led most of the game and twice had chances to put it away in the fourth quarter, driving deep into Heath territory only to lose a pair of costly fumbles.
