CATS ARE MOVIN' ON
School will be Dismissed Wednesday, November 1st for Second Round Football Game
CATS WIN 22-14, MOVE ON TO SECOND ROUND OF PLAY-OFFS!
Hemingford used a long kick-off return for a touchdown by Miles Davis and two strong touchdown runs by Conner Swanson to score 22 first half points in their first round D1 State Football Play-off game against visiting Overton. That offensive first half was balanced by a fierce defensive second half, as HHS took a 22-14 victory at home against visiting Overton.
Overton scored a touchdown in each half for their fourteen points, and tested the Cat defense for most of the last two quarters.
Some great defense by Hemingford was played , with Conner Swanson coming up several times with tackles and sacks. Brian Turek made a touchdown saving tackle (or two) as well, with Brandon Chancellor and Ezra Ray contributing multiple stops. Kage Jespersen also stopped Eagle runners for losses several times.
Anchoring the line on offense and defense, Cade Payne held the Bobcat line together when the Eagles threatened, with good support from Jake Sellman, and Luke Cullan made a great pass reception from Davis in the second quarter on fourth down to keep a drive alive.
The Cats will have to wait until later tonight to see who their second round foe will be, either Medicine Valley(Curtis) or Cambridge. Either way, HHS will be on the road next Wednesday, November 1st.
There will be no classes on November 1st, so students, staff, and fans can plan ahead to follow the Bobcats Eastward.
Our school district will be sending at least one fan bus to the game, with details to follow on Friday. Please contact Lisa Haas in the High School office or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org to make your reservations. Go CATS!
