Henderson rushes for 488 yards, 5 TDs as Rice wins 35-33

RICE — — Ragan Henderson rushed for an incredible 488 yards and five touchdowns as the Rice Bulldogs outlasted the Life Lions, 35-33 in the season finale for both teams.

With the win, Rice finishes the season at 4-6, 3-4 in District 6-2A Division II.  Life drops to 1-9, 1-6 in loop play.

In a game that featured over 1,000 yards of offense, 68 points, and no punts, it was two defensive plays that sealed the victory for the Bulldogs. After Henderson’s fifth touchdown run, the Lions responded with a touchdown run by Derek Lee to cut the Rice lead to two points late in the fourth quarter.

On the ensuing conversion attempt, Rice cornerback Eric Hughes knocked the Lee pass down, and the Bulldogs maintained their slim lead.  Later, on the last play of the game, with the same two point lead, Victor Orteaga sacked Lee for a six yard loss to end the game.

Lee had 180 yards rushing and three touchdowns to pace the Lions. Henderson, who scored all five of his touchdowns from at least 47 yards out, accumulated his monster rushing total on only 23 carries.

Henderson finishes his stellar season with 2,109 yards rushing and 26 touchdowns, including three receiving.

    Lindale has been poison to Corsicana all year.
    The Eagles won a bizarre game in Lindale to keep the Tigers out of the football playoffs and ruined the boys basketball season with two gut-wrenching wins in the final week of the season.
    They did it again Tuesday, beating the Tigers 4-0 at Price Field to take over second place in the District 16-4A race.
    Lindale (6-2) had one big inning to hand Corsicana (5-3) its second loss in a row.

    That's just a glimpse of what Marqueshia Kelly went through before deciding to turn down a half dozen basketball scholarships and accept a scholarship to play volleyball at Paris Junior College.
    The journey might have been a little sleepless, but in the end it wasn't that tough for Kelly, who is a multi-sport star at Kerens.
    “I followed my heart,'' she said on Tuesday just moments after signing a letter-of-intent to play volleyball at Paris in front of family, coaches and friends.
