Owl Football team loses homecoming game to Ashby
On Friday, Sept. 16, the Ashby Arrows came into Hancock for a Homecoming matchup. Asbhy would spoil Homecoming with a final score of 38-8.
Ashby would kickoff to start the game and opened with an onside kick that they recovered. This really set the tone of the game. The Arrows scored on the opening drive and never looked back.
Hancock came out flat and Ashby took advantage of it. Ashby scored three of their five touchdowns in the first quarter. Hancock was not mentally ready to play and it was very obvious.
The Arrows scored on plays of 8, 20, 21, 50, and 94 yards. The Owls have to do a better job of eliminating the big plays.
The Owls scoring drive was set up by a nice catch and run by senior tight-end Daniel Lonneman from Taylor Holleman. This set up a two-yard run by Michells Algarate and the two point conversion failed. The Owls then recorded a safety as the Ashby quarterback got called for intentional grounding in the end zone.
