Rock defense leaving Rouse with nowhere to go forcing the ball back over to our side. Hinson connects with LaLau again for the score(29-9). Rouse runs it in for touchdown(29-16). Strong scrambling by Hinson results in key 1st downs for the Dragons, and soon enough RR is staring down the end zone looking for another score. They find it on an explosive run up the middle by White, leaving Rouse with no time to come back for a final score of 36-16.
Dragon defense has only given up four touchdowns in the last two games, definitely earning their hashtag: #NoGive. Defensive backs stuck like glue tonight, almost taking away the passing game for Rouse. Rock offense displayed a strong passing game and an effective running game as Hinson shows off good chemistry with his receiving core while our backs showcase their power/speed. No other way to put it, just another solid team effort from your Round Rock Dragons.
