ROUND ROCK, Texas (KXAN) — Round Rock shifted the district hierarchy on Friday night, snapping Vandegrift’s 21-game district winning streak in overtime.

Round Rock’s Seth Ford scored on a quarterback run in overtime and the Dragons defense held Vandegrift out of the end zone on their series for a 28-21 win. With a win in two weeks against Westwood, Round Rock (7-2) would claim the top seed in the district and would share the district championship with Vandegrift (6-2).

Round Rock held a two touchdown lead twice on Friday night at Dragon Stadium. The Dragons got an early rushing touchdown from Ford and Israel Morgan for a 14-0 halftime lead.

After Vandegrift cut the deficit to 14-7, Morgan added his second touchdown of the night to regain the two possession advantage.

Vandegrift rallied in the fourth quarter, creating two Round Rock turnovers and capitalizing with two short scoring drives to the game at 21.
