The Huskies hosted #1 Bridgewater-Emery/Ethan and came up short in a 48-7 loss at home Aug. 30.

This is a game head coach Jake Terry really wants back.

“BEE is one of those teams we would like to get another shot at,” Terry said. “They may have been better than us this time, but I truly believe that we can compete with them and they are not 40 points better than us.”

BEE scored first, but not without a battle from EPJ’s defense.

“We opened up the game exactly how we wanted,” Terry said. “They received and we were able to put our defense, which played phenomenally against MVP [Aug. 23], out on the field to start things off. They gave up one first down then forced a BEE punt. Our offense then went to work and put together a nice drive. We crossed midfield but the drive stalled out. Tyler Goehring then had a great punt and pinned them deep.

“On the next drive we had them stopped on 3rd and long they hit a big pass play over the top then scored on the next play,” Terry said.

The Huskies lost no time in responding. They put together a long drive of their own and quarterback Ethan Hammitt scored on a short run. The Husky offensive line busted holes again and again for the EPJ backs.

“Ethan did a great job of running the option and getting all our backs involved,” Terry said. “It’s great when we can get that many backs involved in the run game. It forces teams to balance up and not key on any one player as they all can be big play threats.”
