Emmetsburg Football Wins At HWC

Sun 10-6-2013

HWC scored first with 6:43 left to go in the 1st qtr.  After that touchdown, the rain and lighting came and delayed the game for about an hour.  When play resumed, Emmetsburg and HWC traded punches defensively and held each other to minimal yards in the first half and it was still 7-0 HWC at half.  In the second half, Emmetsburg looked a lot better and eventually found the end zone with 3:43 left in the 3rd.  They would go for 2 and get it and go up 8-7.  The E’hawks would score again with 10:03 to go in the 4th and miss the 2 pt and put them up 14-7.  HWC did have one more final opportunity with under 40 seconds to go and at their own 26 yard line.  They would drive it all the way down to Emmetsburg 6 with 2 seconds to go.  Daniel Van Maanen the quarterback for HWC hit Brady Van’t Hul on a slant but he would be stopped at the 1 yard line and that would end the game. 

Emmetsburg had 281 yards of offense, all on the ground and was led by Greg Wesley with 144 yards and 1 touchdown.  The E’hawks improve to 3 – 3, 3 – 0 in the district and will host HMS next Friday.  HWC falls to 3 – 3, 2 – 1 in the district.
