ROCKPORT, Texas – Rene Galvan threw a 28-yard touchdown pass to JR Cruz with 20 seconds left to lift Sinton to a thrilling 28-21 win over Rockport-Fulton on Friday night.
Galvan’s TD pass came on the heels of a wild sequence that saw fumbles by both teams, with Rockport-Fulton recovering the second fumble on their own 2-yard line. Rockport-Fulton quarterback Ace Seibert then connected with Luke Muirhead on a remarkable 98-yard catch-and-run touchdown pass to tie the game at 21-21 with 3:23 left.
Galvan accounted for all four Sinton touchdowns – two passing and two rushing – and finished with 82 yards rushing and 201 yards passing. Rylan Galvan led Sinton’s rushing attack with 90 yards on 15 carries.
John Chupe had 100 yards rushing for Rockport-Fulton (4-1) and Seibert finished with 160 yards passing and two touchdowns.
The win puts Sinton (4-1) in a great position in the District 16-4A Division II race as they host Port Isabel next week for homecoming. Rockport will make a road trip to Rio Hondo next week.
