Harlingen South routs McAllen High

In a game featuring the wild momentum swings that are nearly inevitable when both sides combine for 10 turnovers, the one rock-solid constant was the Harlingen South defense, which came up big on several occasions in a 44-14 non-district road win over McAllen High on Thursday night. The Hawks (2-1) built up an early lead after two Leo Torres field goals and senior running back Israel Vasquez found paydirt on fourth down from the McHi 1-yard line. Vazquez picked up his second touchdown of the night with 10 seconds to go in the first half, also from a yard out.
