The Dragons played in their toughest game of the season on Oct. 5 against Vandegrift. It was a match of heavyweight football teams throwing haymakers back and forth throughout the game. Both teams were held to their lowest point total all season, but that did not keep the Dragon’s homecoming game from being an instant classic. Round Rock took the ultimate fight to the Vipers, but fell short in the final seconds 27-24.
