Hugo Sneaks Past Antlers

November 14, 2013

The Hugo Buffaloes hosted the Antlers Bearcats on Friday night, November 8 and it was an intense fight.  The Bearcat spirit was amazing throughout the entire game. For Hugo, it was senior night. After the presentation of seniors, the Buffaloes won the coin toss and elected to kick off to the Bearcats.  Both teams did a great job of holding each other to no score until 4 minutes left in the 1st quarter when Hugo kicked a field goal. At the end of the 1st quarter it was Hugo 3 and Antlers 0. In the 2nd quarter, Hugo made a play which lead to what was considered a very controversial touchdown. But, Antlers took it in stride and responded accordingly. Zach Speer (#5) threw a beautiful 17 yard TD pass to Drew McKnight (#2) and then, Speer rushed up the middle for the 2 point conversion. At the end of the first half, the score was Hugo 10 and Antlers 8.

After half time, with 10 minutes left in the 3rd quarter, Hugo rushed for a 42 yard touchdown and made the PAT to bring the score to 17-8 Hugo. Now down by 9, the Bearcats kept fighting for their chance to come back. In the 4th quarter Speer took the snap, tossed it Bryce Carter (#11) who then threw a beautiful 48 yard pass to McKnight who took it to the 17 yard line. Speer and Carter continued the drive that put the Bearcats on the 1 yard line, Zach Speer with a quarterback keeper up the middle and a good PAT brought the game 17-16 with Antlers trailing by 1 and 9:38 left in the 4th. After the defense stopped Hugo, Antlers got another chance to pull ahead in the game. Sadly, the Bearcats lost the ball on downs and with 2:17 left in the 4th quarter, Hugo scored once again to confirm their victory. The final score was 24-16. After the game, Coach Speer said, “The seniors were great leaders and taught our younger kids how to win. From 1 win in 3 years to 4 wins in one season and a chance to make playoffs goes a long way in our program. The seniors will be missed but not forgotten. Great year, boys.”
