PHOTOS: Falcons Fall to West Mesquite in Delayed Away Game

Falcon Football had another game full of delays as they traveled to West Mesquite on Sept. 14, 2018.

The Falcons got off to a positive early start with Blake Irving running a TD on the opening drive. Then the lightning came.

After about an hour of delay, play resumed and West Mesquite answered back with the Wranglers tying up the game 7-7 midway through the 1st quarter.

An end zone catch by Nicolas Fabiola gave TC the lead once again and the Falcons closed out the first quarter 14-7 over West Mesquite.

QB Jason Akers added to the Timber Creek touchdowns early in the 2nd quarter, but the team failed a two point conversion.

But West Mesquite was right there with them, running back a kickoff, rushing for a touchdown and recovering a fumble to go over the Falcons 28-27 headed into halftime.

After the half, West Mesquite opened with a touchdown to extend to 35 points — but Timber had two tricks, as Nate Monticure made the TD and Max Arnold caught a two point conversion to tie the game up again, finishing the third quarter 35-35.

That would be the last time the teams were that close, as West Mesquite put up two touchdowns (but no PATs) before Timber could answer with a touchdown catch by Justin Haler late in the 4th to get the score to 47-42.

West Mesquite would score the final touchdown of the game with a long rushing play to put the final score 54-42.

Timber Creek heads into a Bye week this week and returns for varsity football action for their first district game against Eaton High School on Thursday, Sept. 27.
