Varsity football falls to 1-2 on season

Last Friday, Hamilton’s varsity football team traveled to Byron Center to take on the Bulldogs.

The Hawkeyes kept it close in the first half, but fell 46-10 after a relentless second half from Byron Center.

“While we lost to BC, there were some bright spots,” Head Coach, Chad Miller said.¬†“For example, despite many injuries to our starters, we had some people really step up and fill roles and do a very good job.”

Hamilton’s first drive looked promising, but after driving the length of the field the Hawkeyes were stopped near the goal line trying to convert a 4th and 5 situation. Howver, the Hawkeyes would capitalize on their next chance as Brady Mudd would knock down a 26 yard field goal to put Hamilton up 3-0 to end the 1st quarter.

Byron Center came out with a bang as they scored their first touchdown of the game after a big return. Byron  also got the two point conversion. Hamilton would answer right back with a 50 yard touchdown run from junior Nate Pando and the extra point added by Brady Mudd. BC would add a rushing score though before the halves end.

From then on it was all Byron Center as the Hawkeye offense was shut out for the next two quarters. The BC offense would score three touchdowns alone in the third quarter and adding both a TD and a field goal in the fourth quarter to beat the Hawks 46-10.

Hamilton will need to fight through injuries to key players this week in their game at Forest Hills Northern who is 2-1 on the season.
