Lions roughed up by Huskies



Moore’s offense finally got clicking in the second quarter when Ryan Lugan snuck out of the backfield and Webb connected with him for a 56-yard pass play. It set up a Trevor Hunt 25-yard field goal.

The Lions forced the Huskies to punt, and it looked like it would have a chance to get another score before halftime. However, Harris’ nightmare first half continued with his third fumble of the evening. It was the team’s fourth turnover and it allowed Farmer to score again to put the Huskies up 21-3 at half-time.

“We had five, and I had three of them myself,” Harris said. “I’m mad at myself. But you have to get over it and go on to the next play.”

The second half started much the way the first half did. Webb tossed an interception that was returned for a touchdown. The Huskies bolted to a 28-3 lead.

The Huskies’ Luke Rossi was injured on a play and while waiting for the stretcher, players from Moore and North met at the 50 to pray together. The first play after the 20-minute wait Webb hit Jordan Ber nhardy for a 28-yard TD pass. The Lions closed the gap to 28-10.

“It was real big,” Bernhardy said. “Any pass play is a big motivator for us. Any big gain, really. The offense is real capable. We can run and gun, really.”

But North answered with Farmer’s third touchdown of the night.

After Webb left the game with a possible concussion, Harris took over at quarterback and scored early in the fourth quarter. But that would be as close as the Moore would get the rest of the night.

“Still, you look out on the football field and see our guys just battle, scratch, claw and fight to the very end,” Watters said. “We can’t be more proud than that for that reason.”
