HHS football shows no sign of slowing down
Dragon football players have posted their third win in as many weeks, and the powerhouse team seems more than content to continue mowing over its opponents. At least the most recent competitors managed to get on the scoreboard.
Holyoke High School hosted Bridgeport, Nebraska, last Saturday, Sept. 8. The home team gained a hefty lead in the first quarter and never looked back, winning 34-6.
With a third victory under their belt, the Dragons go into their bye week, giving the team some extra time to prepare for the Friday, Sept. 21, game they have at Highland at 7 p.m. and the league games that will follow for the remainder of the season.
Coach Dusty Sprague said it will be good to have that week to rest, get healed up and work on some areas of the game that could use improvement.
On Saturday afternoon, HHS wasted no time on the field. Michael Ramos broke through the Bulldog offense and made a long run that put the Dragons in scoring position. Blake Mosenteen got the touchdown and Alexis Vega kicked an extra point, putting Holyoke ahead 7-0 with 8:17 on the clock.
Bulldogs didn’t get to enjoy their possession for long, as Luis Chafino intercepted the ball. Mosenteen went on to make a long run. Miles Sprague made a touchdown pass to Caleb Deaver with 6:04 left in the quarter. Another PAT kick by Vega took the score to 14-0.
