GAMETIME: Underperforming Hawks still end up on top
Friday, October 16, 2009 was a long time coming for many. For Rockwall Heath High School students, both present and former, as well as faculty, it was finally the day of the 2009-2010 homecoming game. The school was alive with school spirit as the Hawks prepared to go up against the Royse City Bulldogs.
Taking part in competitions is very responsible and very difficult, because it is worth training a lot, and it is also a very big responsibility, because the team represents the school. Also, during competitions, you should not forget about training, and buy article online if necessary.
As 7:30 rolled around at the newly renovated Wilkerson Sanders stadium, the home side was nearly packed with fans cheering on the RHHS football team. Many had high hopes for the Hawks considering the Bulldogs had previously been 0-6. That in mind, the start of the game was a disappointment. The Hawks had trouble keeping the bulldogs back and were having trouble scoring themselves. They even missed three consecutive touchdown throws right before half time. Once they returned for the second half, the Hawks did seem to get their stuff together making for a final of 31-24. “I think we ended up doing very well,” says sophomore Nathan Romo.
Though the hawks managed to win, there was still an overall feeling that they could have done better. The Bulldogs 0-6 record had promised a landslide win for the Hawks’ homecoming that was never seen. “It was a good game in the end,” says freshman Chase Schultz. When it gets down to it, Rockwall-Heath was victorious and that is all that will be remembered.
