|Dragon football squad routed by the Yuma Indians|
|Written by Kyle Arnoldy|
After starting the season with a 4-0 record, the Dragon football team has hit a two-game skid, falling to Yuma on a cold, windy road game 20-28 Friday, Oct. 4.
“We played very well except for a couple of turnovers and allowing a few big plays,” coach John Zilla said of the game.

Things got off to a bumpy start for HHS as a fumble on the fourth play from scrimmage handed the ball over to the Indians on Holyoke’s 38-yard line. It took just one play for Yuma to dart into the end zone after a wide receiver motioned across the offense, taking a handoff for the 38-yard score. A completed pass tacked on two more points for the Indians who went up 8-0 with less than two minutes played in the game.
Holyoke made better use of their ensuing possession, using a combination of their smash mouth style of football and Yuma’s tendency to jump offsides to march down the field. Bradley Cumming capped off the drive with a 30-yard rushing touchdown. He made his way back to the end zone for the 2-point conversion to tie the game up at 8 apiece with just over seven minutes remaining in the first quarter.
