Deer Park took a bite out of the Wolves

In News by David Russell1 Comment

On Friday, November 9th, the Deer Park Deer took on the Beaumont United Timberwolves. The game started off in dull fashion and looked as if it were the makings of a defensive battle. The first score of the game was a 22 yard scramble by Brock Weidner, putting the Deer up 7-0. On the next drive the timberwolves answered back as quarter back Zemaiah Vaughn threw a 28 yard touchdown pass to tight end Devin Hunt, concluding the first quarter.

The second quarter was unusual. The Deer scored 16 points off of two touchdowns and a safety, but the safety wasn’t just any regular safety. The Deer’s tight end Dylan Heim received the snap in the quarterbacks spot, and threw an interception in the end zone, but a Deer defender was quick enough to tackle the receiver while in the end zone and this resulted in 2 points for the deer.

“It was really odd, and I was bummed out but I saw that it was ruled a safety and that really lifted us,” Dylan Heim on the safety said.

Dylan Heim ended up serving a huge role in the Deer’s success as he scored one receiving touchdown and one rushing touchdown.

All in all, the Deer won the game by a score of 41-20. For some, this was their last game of high school football, and for others, they will be back next year. Regardless, the deer worked hard as a team to win the game for each other.

Deer Park finished the season 4-6, and with new experience. They are destined for a good year.
