Springtown breaks Rams’ hex, clinches playoff return



Nick Keith’s interception, the first of three second half turnovers forced by Pojo, would set up a 32-yard scoring drive capped off by Robertson’s two-yard run. Mineral Wells would get just two first downs and 69 total yards in the final two quarters. Juniors Evan Glesne and Josh White would come through with an interception and fumble recovery, respectively, to snuff out the Rams in the fourth quarter.

Springtown used a turnover on downs deep in Ram territory to score on sophomore Ryan Snow’s four-yard run two plays into the final stanza. Despite not having a carry in the first three quarters, Snow would lead the team in rushing with 56 yards in the contest.

Robertson opened the scoring with a four-yard run. Mineral Wells came right back and capped an 83-yard series with Josh Hardee breaking a pair of tackles on his way to a 30-yard scoring jaunt. Pojo did the Rams two yards better on the next possession, marching 85 yards in 11 plays with Turner and Dylan Ray combining on the 23-yard touchdown strike with seven minutes to go in the first half.

The Porcupines will close the regular season with a short week, playing Diamond Hill-Jarvis Thursday evening at Fort Worth’s Farrington Field. Kickoff is at 7 p.m.
