FRISCO – DeSoto linebacker Brandon Booker wasn't thrilled with the offense Rockwall-Heath ran against his team on Thursday, with a deliberate pace that emphasized burning the clock running between the tackles. This irritation didn't prevent Booker and his teammates from shutting that offense down. The DeSoto defense held Rockwall-Heath to 59 total yards in the first half in building a 35-0 lead. Meanwhile, DeSoto was excellent game running the ball itself, led by Deondrae Riden. The Eagles rumbled for 356 yards as a team as DeSoto routed Rockwall-Heath 52-7 in a Class 6A Division II area playoff at the Ford Center at The Star.
