9/2/2017 12:19:00 AM Kings offense too much for Huskies to handle
After starting the season out at 0-2, the Hamilton Heights Huskies added another to the L column last night falling the Lewis Cass Kings by a score of 44-6 in Walton.
A solid effort from both sides of the ball allowed the Kings to dictate this one from start to finish. After working all week on blocking low, the Kings linemen dictated the outcome of the game by neutralizing the Huskies size advantage. The Kings o-line held their blocks in the passing game and time and again opened lanes for Cass runners. On the defensive side the Kings pressured the Huskies all night forcing repeated turnovers.
The Kings wasted no time in setting the tone of this one when they opened the game with a nine play drive that ended with King Brady Johnson taking it in from 2 yards out at the 7:36 mark of the first quarter. The conversion attempt failed and Cass was up 6-0. Following fumbles by each team Cass went to work again on a short field when they recovered on the six yard line. On the third play of the series Caden Zeck took it in from three yards out at the 1:43 mark. The conversion attempt again failed and the Kings led 12-0 after one complete.
Following a three and out on Heights, the Kings offense went to work again. An eight play drive ended when Eurit again found paydirt from three yards out at the 4:15 mark of the second. And again the conversion attempt failed as the Kings took a 24-0 lead into the break.
It took just four plays in the third quarter for the Kings to strike again. QB Brady Johnson found Eurit for a 43 yard touchdown pass at the 6:03 mark to take a 30-0 lead.
The Kings fumbled the ball late in the fourth quarter and the Huskies took advantage. With the ball on the 12 yard line and an extremely short field, it took Heights just three plays for Blake Webel find the endzone for their only score of the night at the 3:52 mark. The point after was blocked and Cass was on top 44-6.
Heights plays again next week on the road at Tipton.
