Key players: All four of Xavier Beasley’s catches (180 yards) went for Birdville touchdowns. Backup quarterback Colby Feris also caught two TD passes. Isaiah Weatherspoon had one rushing and one receiving TD for the Hawks.
Key stat: Polyechnic almost avoided being shut out by driving late to the Birdville 8-yard line, but an interception by at the goal line by Birdville’s Darrius Franklin ended the threat. Franklin’s 100-yard return was wiped out by an illegal block.
