Tuscola Jim Ned a Tough Challenge for Wall at Area Playoff
SAN ANGELO, TX— The Wall Hawks defeated Tuscola Jim Ned 52-21 at San Angelo Stadium in the 3A-Division 1, Region I Area Playoffs and will face Brock next week.
It was a relatively slow start for Wall, but the Hawks picked up the tempo only allowing one touchdown in the final three quarters.
“They came out the second half ready to play. I thought in the first half we took these guys a little light,” said Wall Head Coach Houston Guy. “In the second half, they came out they reared up, to their coaches credit, to their kids credit, they came out here to win the football game.”

Jim Ned seemed to catch Wall off guard and scored first to put the Indians up 7-0 on the Hawks with 6:58 left in the first quarter.
However, Wall would even the score at seven on a 35-yard touchdown run by Tymber Carrr late in the first quarter after an incredible diving interception by Dryden Virden.

After forcing a Jim Ned three and out, Wall made an uncharacteristic error on the punt return and muffed the punt turning the ball over. The fumble resulted in a Jim Ned touchdown that extended the Indians lead 14-7.
Although Jim Ned seemed to have Wall on their toes, Carr quickly answered for the Hawks on a rushing touchdown that shifted the momentum in Wall’s direction.
Wall then exploded for 35 unanswered points after starting off slow to put the Hawks up 41-14 at the end of three quarters.
Carr was mostly responsible for the offensive attack accounting for five total touchdowns and contributed on defense as well with an interception that ended a drive for Jim Ned in the end zone.
“Our line, the receivers, and the other running back and Brock were doing a great job reading [the defense] and we were doing a great job blocking,” said Tymber Carr. “I saw a few holes and took advantage.”
