Dallas Adamson scored three touchdowns in the first quarter Thursday against Fort Worth Diamond Hill-Jarvis at Farrington Field. The game was called at halftime because of lightning with the Leopards leading 21-8.
After a 70-minute delay, the nondistrict game was ruled complete and will go in the books as official.
DH-Jarvis (0-3), despite being down by 13, outgained Adamson 176 yards to 145 and picked up seven first downs to the Leopards’ four.
DH-Jarvis’ Tim Robinson was the leading rusher for the game, picking up 135 yards on 13 carries and scoring the Eagles’ lone touchdown.
The game appeared as though it was going to be a rout early after Adamson needed only seven plays to open a 21-0 lead with 5:01 left in first quarter. After those three drives, completed in just over six minutes, DH-Jarvis’ defense held tough, forcing two punts and a turnover on downs.
Robinson scored on a 56-yard run with less than two minutes to go in the second quarter. Zeith Ortiz-Perez converted the 2-point conversion that cut the lead to 21-8.
Diamond Hill had another chance to score late in the first half, but time expired after the Eagles had driven 50 yards to the Leopards’ 35.
