GAME REPORT: Fast start, Thomas’ return propel AHS to road win over Grand Prairie

GRAND PRAIRIE — Da’King Thomas made an instant impact in his return to the Abilene High lineup Friday, rushing for 129 yards and two touchdowns to fuel the Eagles to a 35-28 road win over Grand Prairie.

Behind Thomas, who did the bulk of his damage in the first half, AHS built a 28-7 lead by halftime. And after watching the Gophers pull within a touchdown with a pair of third-quarter scores, quarterback Abel Ramirez provided what would prove to be the game-winning TD in the form of a 32-yard run early in the fourth quarter.

The win, the Eagles’ second in a row, evened the team’s record at 2-2 heading into next week’s District 2-6A opener at Odessa Permian.
