AUSTIN (KXAN) — Playoff spots are up for grabs over the final two weeks of the high school football season beginning Thursday night.
In District 13-6A, Round Rock (6-2, 4-2) can took a hit toward that in a loss to Hendrickson Thursday at The Pfield in the KBVO Big Game of the Week.
The Dragons had a 28-21 lead in the fourth quarter, but the Hawks scored 14 unanswered points to come away with the 38-28 win.
Round Rock closes against Vista Ridge (7-2, 5-2) a week from Thursday.
Hendrickson relishing its role of spoiler. The Hawks have been hit hard by injury. Despite their 1-5 district record, four of their five losses have been decided by seven points or less.
Round Rock features one of the most explosive offenses in Central Texas. Junior quarterback Seth Ford has passed for 1,836 yards, 18 touchdowns and no interceptions. Ford’s favorite target is senior receiver Collin Sullivan who has 50 catches for 1,034 yards and 15 touchdowns. Johnson is committed to sign with Purdue.
There are five teams playing for three playoff spots in 13-6A with Vandegrift already clinching a post season berth. The Vipers can win the district title outright with a victory over Leander on Friday.
