The team's eighth grade members were honored in a pre-game ceremony at VanHooser Stadium.
After tossing the game-tying score, Roller squeezed into the end zone on a busted two-point conversion play to give the Saints the lead. The DMS defense rose to the occasion on the ensuing Smith County drive, and ensured victory by stopping the drive after the Owls lost seven yards in four plays.
