Boys Varsity Football · Killeen shuts downs Heights to earn 21-0 win By Felisa Cárdenas | Herald staff writer


In front of a large Killeen football crowd, the Roos defense delivered a shutout performance Friday night.

The Kangaroos beat Harker Heights (0-5, 0-3 District 12-6A) 21-0 at Leo Buckley Stadium behind a strong defensive performance from senior Chris Ingram.

But it was the Knights’ defense that stole the show as they held the Roos (3-2, 2-1) to 77 passing yards in the first half and forced a turnover at the start of the second half as they trailed Killeen 7-0 at the break.

After failing to move up the field, Killeen defensive back Taluai Hisatake dropped the punt and Heights recovered the ball, but failed to get past midfield.
