The seventh graders struggled against the Hugoton Eagles most of the day while a missing mouthpiece might have cost the eighth grade a win Thursday in the season finale against Hugoton.
South’s seventh graders did not have an answer against the up-the-middle running game of Hugoton. The Eagles were able to move the ball inside, and when the Apaches tried to crowd the middle Hugoton would go to the sweeps. Hugoton had little trouble moving the ball in a 42-6 victory.
South’s lone touchdown came late in the fourth when Juan Rodriguez threw a pass to Erasmo Delacruz who made the catch and outran two Hugoton defenders to the end zone for a 45-yard touchdown reception.
South’s eighth grade had chances against Hugoton, only trailing 14-8 at half.
But a go-ahead drive to start the second half ended with a fumble.
South had another chance to cut the lead when Luis Holguin scampered in to the end zone form five yards out, but South was penalized for a player not using his mouthpiece, and on the next play from the 10 yard line, South fumbled.
Hugoton scored on the next play to put the game out of reach in a 28-16 South loss.
