EMS 0 – HMS 24
Warriors offense couldn’t get off the ground. The Hays defenders locked down EMS’s receivers all day, and the front seven controlled the line of scrimmage leading to several 4-outs. The defense spent most of the game on the field.
8th. It was a manageable 16-0 score at the half after a long rushing TD on a motion play to the wingback and a PR for a touchdown. Injuries also hurt the Warriors who saw 4 starters go down. Two of them eventually came back in, but Fullback/Linebacker Zayden Norez and Left Guard Aaron Cazarez join Center/Linebacker Bren Kappelman on the Questionable list for SRMS.
EMS 14 – HMS 6
It was the Max Holman show as he caught a 65 yard touchdown, returned a kick for a touchdown, and had a brilliant punt return of about 70 yards that got stopped short of scoring. He was the star of the show, but he had a lot of help as Jayden Heronemous had arguably the best rushing performance of his middle school career. He didn’t have his best night statistically, but he was doing everything right with the ball in his hands and picking up blitzing linebackers. Jaime Navarate and David (DJ) Gilmore each recovered a fumble, and Everett Betts took the game sealing interception out of the sky on the 20 with under a minute left in the game.
