Rockwall Yellow Jackets win ’09 season opener; defeat Midland last night, 31-26

Rockwall High School Coach Scott Smith said last month that Rockwall’s Yellow Jackets have plenty of talent this year and “can be as good as they want to be.” If Friday night’s victory over Midland is any indication, Rockwall could be pretty good.

Junior running back Josh Broach ran over Midland newly-installed 4-3 defense for 193 yards on 31 carries, scoring four touchdowns, leading the Yellow Jackets to a 31-26 victory last night in their 2009 season opener at Midland’s Grande Communications stadium.

Broach scored all of the Yellow Jackets’ TDs – scoring in every quarter – on runs of 1,1, 6 and 22 yards.

Running back Dexter Imade rushed for 210 yards and scored a pair of touchdowns in the second half to lead Rowlett to a 24-16 win over neighboring Rockwall Sept. 4, in what had been billed as the “Battle of the Bridge.”

After rushing for 19 yards in the first half, Imade broke free for a 67-yard touchdown run that gave Rowlett (2-0) a 17-8 lead to start the third quarter. Imade later added another score with a 59-yard run.

Rockwall (1-1) came back in the fourth quarter when a 50-yard reception from Luke Wardell set up Josh Broach’s two-yard touchdown run. Quarterback Adam Dingwell ran for the two-point conversion.

With 1:48 left in the game, Rockwall had the ball on its own 23-yard line and got a first down before defensive end Nick Nanez stripped the ball from Dingwell, which defensive tackle Marcus Hawkins recovered.

Dingwell completed 14 of 24 passes for 153 yards and rushed 16 times for 39 yards. Josh Broach ran 13 times for 52 yards.
