MIDLOTHIAN — Dallas Christian scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns to beat Fort Worth Christian 21-10 on Saturday night in a TAPPS Division II quarterfinal playoff game.
The Chargers’ Taylor Carson scored two touchdowns and had over 100 yards of total offense, including the game’s first score, a 5-yard catch from quarterback Brody Frazier that gave Dallas Christian a first-quarter lead.
On the ensuing possession, Fort Worth Christian drove deep into Chargers territory, only to come up empty-handed after a missed field-goal attempt. But the Cardinals (8-4) tied the score in the second quarter on a 5-yard run by Jake Roberson, who also had a 45-yard romp on the drive.
Both offenses had trouble getting untracked in the third quarter, with the Chargers turning the ball over on downs after advancing to Fort Worth Christian’s 20-yard line. Dallas Christian forced a punt, but FWC’s defense came up with an interception to set up a 39-yard field goal by Jake Kane that put the Cardinals up 10-7 heading into the fourth quarter.
But from that point on, all the momentum belonged to Dallas Christian (12-0).
The Chargers produced a long drive that appeared to stall on fourth down, but a defensive holding penalty on the Cardinals gave Dallas Christian an opening. On the next play, Frazier connected with Dominique Weaver for a 22-yard touchdown pass to put the Chargers up 14-10.
Fort Worth Christian answered with a lengthy drive of its own, but the Cardinals were unable to convert on fourth down.
The Chargers quickly responded, sealing the victory via a 76-yard touchdown run by Carson.
Dallas Christian will face Midland Christian next Saturday at Clyde’s Bulldog Stadium at a time to be determined.
