Hamilton JV football team suffers a tough loss

Hamilton JV football team started out slow last night in their game against Forest Hills Northern. They gave up 14 points on the Huskies first 2 possessions.

“They fought back and played much better through the rest of the game,” Coach Chad Miller said. “The team never gave up.”

Quarterback Brady Mudd got injured in the second quarter which made the team hopes for a comeback more difficult.

In the middle of the third, Trenton Alexander trucked the ball in for a Hawkeye touchdown.

Two more points came from a team sack in the end zone resulting in a safety.

“I was really proud of the guys and how they believed in themselves and their teammates, regardless of what was going on,” Coach Miller added.

Jake Kesler intercepted a pass in the second half to try to help with a comeback.

Kesler said that when he saw the ball coming towards him, he thought he had to catch that ball.

“I felt like it was important to get. It would possible be our second chance at a comeback.”

Coach Miller was very happy with how some of the players stepped up when others got hurt.

“In particular,┬áCaleb Driesenga did a nice job playing cornerback for us when we needed him,” Coach Miller said.

“Forest Hills Northern was a good team, but I think we should have won,” said Kesler.

Next week the Hamilton Hawkeyes look to redeem themselves when they host Hastings.
