Richardson Pearce holds off Rockwall in last minute in wild offensive show, wins 43-36

Wow, what a thrilling game!

Down 43-29 with just over three minutes left in the game, the Area’s 12th-ranked Rockwall Yellow Jackets rallied to score a touchdown with 58 seconds remaining, recovered an onside kick and then drove to Richardson Pearce’s 30 yard-line, but failed to complete a fourth-down pass with nine seconds remaining.

As a result, the Area’s 8th-ranked Mustangs (5-2, 3-1) held on to defeat disappointed Rockwall (4-3, 2-2) in a wild offensive show last night at Rockwall’s Wilkerson-Sanders Stadium, 43-36.

Although the Yellow Jackets amassed 562 yards total offense, the Mustangs were able to convert more of their 531 yards total offense into points.
