Red hot Hawks fly after bus breaks down near Anza




By Dave Dickens



ANZA (10-7- 2017) – The Hamilton Bobcats took the opening kickoff down the field like as if it was all a blur.

The Mountain Empire Red Hawks were ready and willing to return the favor as WR/DB DALLAS PRINCE allowed the
Ball to bounce off his chest, Hamilton recovering at the Red Hawk 30 yard line.

This particular Saturday afternoon was definitely heading in the wrong direction, as the kickoff was also delayed 30 minutes as the Mountain Empire bus had broken down, and luckily a replacement bus got them to Hamilton, but the Red Hawks were not to go down as quick and easy as that old bus.

Five plays later, the Bobcats converted the early turnover into 6, however the Red Hawk’s luck was about to turn around.

Attempting the point after, the kick from Hamilton was blocked by RB/LB BLAKE JARRELL.

As Hamilton kicked off, a speedy, and usually sure-handed Prince caught the ball and scampered 86 yards into the end zone for a Red Hawk touchdown. The point after was good to make it 13-7 in favor of the host Bobcats.

Hamilton’s next possession involved Red Hawks’ RB/DB ISIAH COLEMAN, who came home with an apparant 68-yard pick six that was called back on a personal foul penalty on the Red Hawks.

However as luck may have it, the next play for the Bobcats was a blocked punt by COLTEN ALLEN and recovered by TE/DE/LS SAWYER ERNSBARGER at the 31 and taken to the Bobcat 11.

Three plays later, a 6 yard touchdown run by Coleman, along with the point after, make it 14-13 Red Hawks.

Towards the end of the half, QB GABRIEL HYDORN launched a 50 yard TD to WR WYATT MANN. The point after was no good so it was 20-13 Red Hawks at the half.

The red hot Red Hawks would go on to shut Hamilton down completely with the dynamic defense, capped off by two more scores in the third quarter and two in the 4th.

In the 3rd quarter, a 13-yard TD pass from Hydorn to Ernsbarger, a 5-yard rushing TD and an 8-yard rushing TD by
Hydorn, and a 44-yard field goal by K/P WYATT AGUILAR to boot accounted for the final score, 44-13.
