Barnard also scored with 3:13 left in the first on a 33-yard pass from senior quarterback Alex Menchaca. Barnard took in the conversion for two.

After Iowa Park’s Trent Green and Kase Johnson combined for seven in the second quarter, Menchaca answered with a two-yard rushing touchdown followed by a Landeros kick.

Barnard capped off the half with a 27-yard passing score from Menchaca to make the halftime score 29-7.

During the second half, the Indian offense stalled with several players leaving the game for minor injuries. The Hawks put up 20 more points in the remaining two quarters, but the Indians held the lead to advance.
