Tied Up At Ratliff

At halftime of Odessa High's Homecoming, Tascosa isn't rolling over like good guests should, as it's tied at 14-14. As usual, quarterback Dalton Brooks has carried the Rebels, throwing a 64-yard touchdown to Toby Dennis to start the scoring, and running 16 yards for a score to tie the game. Brooks has run for 50 yards on 12 carries.

Tascosa has effectively minimized what Odessa High's powerful offense can do, as the Rebels held the ball for a long touchdown drive and forced two late turnovers. Only a 74-yard punt return for a score by Odessa High's Gabriel Rodriguez kept Tascosa from taking the lead into the lockerroom.

The second half should see some great football which will say a whole lot about both teams. And with Amarillo High leading Odessa Permian, the Amarillo schools are at the very least showing they can play with the powerful Odessa schools _ at least for a half.
