GREENVILLE — Detroit 18,

Celeste 14

  CELESTE — Celeste spotted Detroit an 18-0 lead and then mounted a comeback that came up just short in a 18-14 non-district football loss to the Eagles on Friday night.

  Detroit keeps its non-district record perfect at 6-0 while Celeste falls to 3-3.

  The Eagles’ first score of the night came on a 14-yard run by senior quarterback Devin Ervin with 9:59 left in the first half. The score was set up by an interception at the Celeste 38-yard line. Six plays later Ervin ran in from 14 yards out for the first score of the night. The Blue Devils’ Tim Herman intercepted a pass for the two-point conversion and Detroit led, 6-0, with 9:59 left in the opening half.   The six-play, 30-yard scoring drive started following a Celeste interception.

  Following a partially blocked punt Celeste took over at the Detroit 19-yard line. Seven plays later   Celeste scored when quarterback Braden Morrow connected with Bryce Keiffer for six yards and a touchdown. Scott Collida ran in the two-point conversion to cut the lead to 18-8 with 4:58 left in the game.

  Celeste’s defense, led by Jacob Smith, Alec Smith and Dalton Edge, came up with key stops throughout the game.

  Morrow completed a throw to Kieffer for 19 yards and a touchdown with 46 seconds left. The pass for the two-point try failed, leaving the final count, Detroit 18, Celeste 14.

Rockwall Heritage 62,

Campbell 0

  ROCKWALL — Former Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools state champion Rockwall Heritage blanked the Campbell Indians 62-0 in six-man football on Friday.

Heritage upped its season record to 4-1 while the Indians, who are a first-year program, dropped to 1-5.

  “It was a tough night for us according to the final score,” said Campbell coach Tyler Smith. “But, believe it or not we made a positive step forward with our execution and keeping the turnovers to a minimum. They were a talented and physical team. Rockwall Heritage is, by far, the most talented team that we have faced this year. They have a great program and are at the top of their game. We are still building and concentrating on making positive strides in the right direction.  We now have a clean slate, and we are very excited about starting district next week against Fannindel.”
