By Chris Moore | PA News

HOUSTON — The Port Neches-Groves Indians and the Lindale Eagles came out firing on all cylinders in the first half at NRG Stadium on Friday. PNG won 50-28. Indians senior quarterback Roschon Johnson came out hot, taking his second rush 66 yards to give PNG (8-3) an early 7-0 lead. Lindale (7-4) answered back on its first play by going to a trick play on a Brayson Campbell receiver pass that connected for a 74-yard score. After only three plays from scrimmage, the game was tied up 7-7 just over 1 minute off the board. Lindale took the driver’s seat forcing PNG into a three-and-out. The Eagles used a 12-play drive to go 53 yards and score on a 6-yard run to give Lindale a 14-7 lead with 3:30 left in the first quarter. On the second play of the following drive Johnson found Jose Ceja on a short hitch route that Ceja turned into a 65-yard score after breaking a tackle.

The game changed when…

After trading scores, the game was tied at 21-21 with a little over 2 minutes left in the half. The Eagles were threatening to take the lead on the Indians 35-yard line, but were facing a fourth down. PNG came up with a huge sack and took over with 2:01 left in the half on its own 39. After two
plays, PNG was on the Lindale 42. Johnson connected on a deep pass to Ceja down the left side of the field in the end zone. The Indians completed the two-point conversion to give them a 29-21 lead. PNG’s defense held again inside their own territory to force a turnover on downs to end the first half.
