Hancock Owls lose to No. 4 CGB Wolverines in Graceville Friday
The Owls started the game with the ball on their own 25 yard line and were able to move the ball out to midfield before being forced to punt. After an excellent punt return CGB would take only three plays to go 45 yards for the first points of the game. CGB would score twice more in the quarter while Hancock struggled to move the ball. After one quarter the Wolverines would led 30-0.
During the second quarter the Owls would move the chains several times but could not sustain a drive long enough to reach the endzone. CGB scored twice more in the quarter for a half time score of 46-0.
The Owls had two possessions in the third quarter, both of which would end in punts. CGB again scored twice in the third to take a 62-0 lead going into the fourth.
In the fourth, the Owls broke the shutout on a two yard run by Collin Cunningham, two point pass from Taylor Holleman to Jordan Miller made the score 62-8 in favor of CGB. CGB would return the ensuing kickoff 87 yards to make the final score 68-8.
"We did not come out ready to play today", said Coach Chad Christiansen. "CGB has a great team and played hard from start to finish. We need to get back to work as we have a real short week this week traveling to Verndale on Tuesday night to take on the Pirates."
