4958In a most unsuspenseful fashion, Pearland Dawson drained the final bit of playoff suspense from District 22-6A on Thursday night with a 55-6 victory over South Houston at Veterans Memorial Stadium.

The Eagles rolled up 492 yards of offense and held a 35-0 lead just two minutes into the second quarter.

Dawson used the victory to nail down the final unclaimed playoff spot in 22-6A. The Eagles finished the regular season with a 6-4 record, 5-3 in district action.

With the loss, the Trojans were eliminated from playoff contention. Now 2-7 overall and 2-5 in district play, South Houston winds up the season next week against Alvin.

Dawson quarterback Vince Galloway fired four touchdown passes in the contest – all in the first half -- and his backup, Zach Smith, added another.

The Eagles completed 11 of their 15 passes in the contest for 261 yards. Dawson’s Brent Winnegan added 119 yards on the ground on only five carries. Winnegan had TD runs of 26 and 55 yards in the first quarter.

The Trojans got a fourth-quarter TD on a one-yard run by Joshua Williams. South Houston quarterback Tatum Girdy rushed for 124 yards on 35 carries.
