Tivy stuns Hays 34-31 on Homecoming

Three first half Rebel turnovers, which led to 21 Kerrville Tivy points, doomed Hays in a 34-31 homecoming loss on Friday night.  

Hays' turnover woes began on the second play of the game, as quarterback Jeff Jordan had a pass tipped and intercepted. Tivy took advantage two plays later. Antler running back Adrian Medran rumbled 38 yards to give Tivy a 7-0 lead. Medran led all rushers with a game high 78 yards on 15 carries.

 

Hays responded with a big 64-yard touchdown pass from Jordan to wide receiver Ty Goebler. 

However, turnovers continued to plague the Rebels. A fumbled punt allowed Tivy quarterback Cade Dyal the chance to toss a 15 yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Tyler Ahrens. Dyal went 12 of 18 passing for 134 yards and two touchdowns. 

Tivy had a 13-7 lead after a quarter, then increased it to 20-7 before Hays' offense woke up.

The Rebels reeled off 14 unanswered points to take a 21-20 lead. Jordan led the charge, finishing 13 of 29 passing for 257 yards and two touchdowns. 

A third turnover gave Tivy the short field again. Dyal capped off an eight play, 39 yard drive with a four yard touchdown run. Tivy held a 28-21 halftime lead. 

Hays' kicker Payton Kisor provided the only points in the third quarter via a 24 yard field goal. 

But a fatigued Rebel defense couldn't stop Tivy's offense in the fourth quarter. A 26 yard touchdown pass from Dyal to running back William Randal gave Tivy a 34-24 cushion. 

Hays lcut the lead to three via a one yard Jordan rushing touchdown, and had one final chance at a comeback in the final two minutes. Yet, it was too little, too late, as the rally fell short. 

Kerrville Tivy improves to 2-3 overall, 1-1 in District 27-4A. Hays falls to 3-2 overall, 1-1 in district.
