The Rockwall-Heath Hawks faced a must win on Friday night to continue their dreams of clinching a spot in the 2016 playoffs.
The Hawks cranked up the offense and stepped up on defense to take down Mesquite 52-24 in front of their home crowd at Wilkerson-Sanders Memorial Stadium. The Hawks are now 3-2 in district and remain tied with Rockwall and Mesquite Horn for 3rd place. The Hawks will welcome Longview to town on Friday night. The Lobos are currently 4-1 in district play after falling to John Tyler last Friday. The Hawks are 0-2 overall against Longview. If the Hawks win out, they will clinch the #1 seed in District 11-6A as a big school and will host a home playoff game most likely against Montgomery.
