The 2019 Falcon Football campaign began in an away match-up against Rockwall Heath on Aug. 29, and while confidence was high, execution simply was not there, as the boys in purple and gold lost a tough game to start the season.

Right out of the gate, Heath punished the Falcons with a 99 yard touchdown and extra point, giving them an early 7-0 advantage. Heath set the tone early, completely dominating for the remainder of the game.

While Timber Creek was able to respond with a 37-yard field goal by Jose Carlo Martinez, it proved to be irrelevant, as in their next possession, Heath scored another touchdown, heightening their advantage to 14 points to 3. After a pick six in the second quarter, Heath went up by 25 points, making the game a complete blowout at the half.

The second half saw Timber Creek score their one and only touchdown, giving the struggling team a glimmer of hope. That hope was quickly smashed by Heath, when they closed their scoring for the night with a 70-yard touchdown. The match ended in a grizzly 38-10 scoreline, favoring the home team.

The Falcons were surely excited to leave Rockwall, not looking back at the terrible loss. The good news is that hopefully itโ€™s only up from here for the 2019 season. The Falcons travel to Prosper next week to face a tough Eagles squad.
