Then Watkins went around the left side and found an opening for the score.
Key players: Watkins finished with 161 yards on 23 carries. Trimble Tech running back Paul Brawner gained 127 yards on 13 carries, including an 84-yard run, and also had a 30-yard touchdown catch as the Bulldogs led 21-13 at the half.
Key stat: Tech dominated time of possession in the opening quarter, holding the ball for over eight minutes, but only managed one touchdown. In the final three quarters, South Hills had the ball for almost 20 of the 36 minutes.
