MANSFIELD — For Mansfield Timberview quarterback Tevin Muse, it was a matter of faith. In the final minute of play, needing a big play, Muse lofted a pass down the sideline to senior Edward Paris.
Beating Hebron’s man-to-man coverage, Paris — an LSU pledge at defensive back — scored on a 37-yard touchdown with 38 seconds remaining, giving Timberview a 21-17 win Thursday over Hebron at Newsom Stadium.
Muse threw for all three scores, despite Timberview (2-0) relying on its option running attack most of the game. Both of Timberview’s first-half touchdowns came on play-action passes: a pair of 24-yard strikes from Muse to Jaylon Loftis.
Hebron (1-1) tied the game two plays into the fourth quarter, scoring on a 22-yard pass to Treyvon Hughes from Carson Proffitt. Hebron converted a 2-point conversion on a trick pass to tie the game 15-15.
After Paris’ score, Hebron returned a shanked extra-point 105 yards for another two points.
