PFLUGERVILLE, Texas (KXAN) — Hendrickson and Weiss played down to the final seconds on Thursday night at The Pfield.
Trailing 49-42, Weiss scored a touchdown with seven seconds remaining to get within 49-48. Instead of planning for overtime with an extra point, Weiss attempted to end the game with a two-point conversion.
The Hendrickson defense stopped Weiss near the corner of the goal line to thwart the two-point attempt and hold on for the 49-48 win in the KBVO Big Game of the Week.
Hendrickson needed a district win to keep its playoff goals on track after two early setbacks buried the Hawks in the standings. Hendrickson (1-2, 3-2) lost difficult games against Cedar Park and Georgetown in recent weeks.
Weiss returned to action after a run-in with COVID-19 forced the postponement of two October games. A member of the Weiss coaching staff tested positive for the virus during the week of Oct. 5. Pflugerville ISD decided to postpone the two games “out of an abundance of caution.”
Weiss (1-1, 1-3) defeated Leander last week in its first game since Oct. 2.
