South Kicks Away the North For 21-19 Win

It's rare that you would credit three successful extra points for helping produce a victory, but Reagan Schneider's toe did just that as the South edged past the North, 21-19, on Tuesday in Fort Worth at the Texas High School Coaches Association All-Star Football Game at Amon Carter Stadium.

As much as Schneider helped secure the win, it was also a failed two-point conversion following their first score that helped doom the North. In addition to missing on the conversion after going up 6-0, the North endured seven fumbles in the contest, losing three

Meanwhile, the South's Dominique Ziegler took game MVP honors by hauling in four passes good for 126 yards. Ziegler, a Killeen Harker Heights graduate, is a Baylor signee. Ziegler was on the receiving end of a 17-yard pass from Texas A&M-bound Jordan Parcus in the second quarter to set up a one-yard lunge by Tommy Blake with just 1:48 remaining before intermission. That score might have held, but with under a minute showing the South's Bruce Davis recovered a North fumble and brought it back back 26 yards to the three-yard line. After one play, the South's Billy Pittman lobbed a one-yard score to Jacob Gutierrez for a 14-6 advantage.

The North's James Battle, a Denton Ryan product headed for TCU, had a solid game on his new stadium turf by completing 6-of-12 passes for 101 yards and two touchdowns. Battle also carried nine times for 53 yards and another score.
