Game Summary


The Hawks kicked off to the Petoskey Northmen and proceeded to hold them on their first drive. The Northmen punted to the ball over to the Hawks and they cashed in with their first TD of the season. QB Bennett VanSolkema connected with Ben Armbrester on a 14-yard TD strike as the clock expired. The extra-point attempt failed so the score remained 6-0 after the one period of play.


Both teams had the ball a couple times in the 2nd quarter and the Northmen could not manage much offense. After punting again to the Hawks, FHE drove down to the Northmen 1-yard with the clock running down. But the Hawks coughed up the ball on a fumble and the Northmen came away with it to stop the drive. The half ended with the Hawks leading 6-0.


The Hawks defense continued to shut down Petoskey giving up very few yards to power running Northmen. The Hawks punched their 2nd TD on a 12 play, 80-yard drive. Caden Peters rambled in from 9-yards out to make the score 12-0. Again the extra point was no good due to a botched snap.


The Hawks put the game out of reach with their 3rd TD on a Ben Armbrester 60-yard run. The extra point was missed to make the score 18-0. The Hawks gave up a 99-yard TD return on the ensuing kickoff as Jaylin Mitchell cut through the Hawks cover team to make the score 18-7. The Northmen got the onside kick but could not convert again as the Hawks defense stiffened and held them out of the end zone. The final was 18-7 Hawks as they move to 1-0 on the young season.
