HS Football Week 2: Susquenita 41 - ELCO 7
Head Coach Scott Acri's Blackhawks bounced back from a tough Week 1 loss in a big way tonight against ELCO with a resounding 41-7 win.
Led by senior tailback Trent McGuire, Susquenita moved the ball consistently with a more diverse offensive look, including targeting Cadet Austin Assoko for several nice plays throughout the game, including a one handed catch to set up 1st and goal in the 3rd quarter. Maguire scored 5 TDs, all on the ground, and dominated by breaking several long runs after slicing through ELCO's defense.
On defense, Susquenita harassed ELCO's backfield all night by causing several tackles for loss, sacks, and two forced fumbles. Cadets AJ Migliarini, Khalil Rashada, and Reese Jacobs all contributed on defense for Susquenita. Assoko intercepted a pass from ELCO in the 3rd quarter and returned it to place the Hawks in good field position. They spent much of the night on ELCO's side of the field, and cashed in repeatedly.
Overall, the Blackhawks are 1-1 for the season and will host Halifax High School next Friday, September 8 at 7:00 p.m. for their 2017 home opener.
Good luck Blackhawks!
