Huskies Hold on to Beat Sparkman in Top 10 Matchup

Hewitt-Trussville got a battle from Sparkman Friday night, but was able to hang on for a 34-27 region win. The Huskies improved to 7-0 overall for the season. The win gives the team a 5-0 record in 7A Region 4. Sparkman fell to 5-2 overall on the year and 3-2 in region play.

The Huskies once again got off to a fast start. On the opening drive Junior quarterback Paul Tyson connected deep down the middle of the field with Senior wide receiver Logan Pitts for a 48-yard touchdown. On the next drive, Tyson hit Senior Lee Reagan for a 7-yard touchdown. The first quarter was just halfway finished and the Huskies led 14-0.

Sparkman answered back with the long touchdown run. The extra point failed and the lead was cut to 14-6. The Huskies once again put a nice drive together, but this time they were stopped short of the end zone. Kicker Parker Colburn connected on a 27-yard field goal to once again give the Huskies a double digit lead. Tyson led another productive drive for the Huskies as halftime neared. He threw a well-designed screen pass to Elliott McElwain and he scored from 25-yards out. Kicker Parker Colburn got another field goal chance on the final play of the half. This time he made a 42-yard field goal and the Huskies took a 27-6 lead in the locker room.

The offense continued to play well as third quarter began. Cameron Bledsoe scored on a 35-yard run to give the Huskies a 34-6 lead. It looked like the team was on the way to another big win but Sparkman battled back. Senators quarterback Devin Kimbrough scored on an 11-yard run to cut the lead to 34-13. Early in the 4th quarter, Sparkman scored on an 11-yard run and suddenly the Husky lead was just 14 points.

The Huskies put together a nice drive late in the 4th quarter, but fumbled inside the Senators 20-yard line. Kimbrough once again made a play for Sparkman as he rushed in from 44-yards out to cut the lead to 34-27 with just over four minutes left.

The Hewitt-Trussville offense responded with several first downs and was eventually able to run out the clock to secure a victory. Coach Josh Floyd said, “I told the guys, this is 7A football. You have to be fired up after a win. Obviously as coaches it is not going to be too much fun to watch the film with the guys because there’s a lot of mistakes, too many penalties.”

The Huskies will be on the road next Friday as they travel to play Huntsville. The game will be played at Milton Frank Stadium.
