Final Hancock football game at Edgerton
The Owls would get the ball to start the game and with their first play from scrimmage pick up 19 yards on a pass play from Taylor Holleman to Austin Steege. The Owls were one down field block away from scoring on that play as there was only one defenderthat could have made the stop for Edgerton. The Owls then would go three and out. Edgerton then scored on their first play from scrimmage, two point run was no good. The Owls would struggle the remainder of the quarter. They had a difficult time picking up their blitz and giving the quarterback time to throw, giving the backs holes to run through. Edgerton would score five times in the opening quarter to make the score 38-0 in favor of the Dutchmen.
In the second quarter the Owls were able to start moving the ball through the air but would only find the end zone once. Starting from their own 20 yard line Hancock, on their second possession of the quarter, had a great throw and catch for 66 yards to Jordan Miller off of the arm of Holleman. The drive would be capped-off four plays later as Holleman would connect with Steege on an eight yard pass,. The two point pass failed.
At the end of the half the game would be Edgerton 60 Hancock 6

We are losing a lot of good seniors this year that will be difficult to replace.
