HHS falls to Yuma in home field Pink Out game
Plagued by penalties on both sides of the ball, the Holyoke-Yuma football match-up Friday, Oct. 13, ended in an 18-0 victory for Yuma.
In observance of breast cancer awareness month, coaches were decked out in pink shirts and players wore pink socks. Pink Out fundraising activities were in full swing throughout the game.
The bulk of the scoring was in the first half as Yuma held a 15-0 lead at the half and went on to pick up a field goal in the second half for the 18-0 win.
Yuma kicked off to Holyoke to start the game. After a quick four downs and loss of yards, the Dragons were forced to punt. Yuma fumbled on its second play and Luke Krogmeier recovered at the Yuma 41-yard line. Unfortunately, the Dragons were unable to make use of the turnover and the Indians took over on downs at their own 32-yard line.
Four first downs later, Yuma scored on a 15-yard TD pass to the end zone with just over three minutes remaining in the first quarter. A good two-point conversion run gave the Indians an 8-0 lead.
