ATLANTA, MI- For the first time since week two of the high school football season, we have some Thursday night action.
Atlanta is in action early due to the Elk Festival. The Huskies looking for their first win since being Posen as they host the Hornets of Pellston.
It would be a wet and cold night for some football in Atlanta but the Huskies played on.
Starting things off the Hornets would strike first and Kenny Crawford would send a deep bomb to Garret Cameron and that’s a 59 yard touchdown to take the early lead.
The first quarter would be high scoring as the Huskies would be down by two touchdowns, but TJ Currie would bring his team back into the game. He takes the option and runs all the way for an Atlanta Touchdown.
Coming towards the end of the first and the rain really started to pick up now. Kenny Crawford would nearly get brought down by the Huskies but he shakes free, heads the opposite direction, and makes it to the endzone. What a play by Crawford for the Hornet touchdown.
Second quarter the Huskies aredown 30-8 but they kept fighting. The solo senior of the squad Trace Juergens takes it right up the gut and grabs the Huskies their second touchdown of the game. He really was everywhere in this one.
Kenny Crawford back again and he would send it to Ethan Landon and with a defender on him, he spins free of the tackle. Great work by Crawford to fight for the touchdown for Pellston.
Nearing the end of the first half, the Huskies are at the goal line ready to strike. Trace Juergans takes the handoff but the ball comes flying out and bounces its way into the endzone and the Hornets recover for the touchdback. No points for the Huskies.
Atlanta though would have a short memory and get the ball back before the end of the half. A great pass from TJ Currie finds Dakota Stevens and Atlanta would finish the half with a 3rd touchdown, the score is 20-36.
Second half and the Huskies really seemed to thrive in the rain. On a kickoff return after a third quarter touchdown, the ball would come flying out and the Huskies would dive for it and get possession back.
Heading into the fourth quarter the Huskies would go from being down by 22 to be dead even with the Hornets 36-36. The comeback was almost complete but the Hornets would have the last laugh. Garrett Cameron would get the handoff and bolt through the Atlanta defense for the touchdown.
Atlanta fought valiantly but Pellston would be too much in the end with the final score being 56-36. The Huskies will be back in action on October 1st at home against Mio-Au Sable.
