HUBBARD, Ohio – From the first drive to the last, Hubbard had all the momentum. On just the second play of the game, junior running back T.C. Caffey broke through the heart of the Lakeview defense, only to be brought down 68 yards later. Two plays later, senior quarterback Kobe Krisuk scampered into the endzone from 5 yards out. Hubbard took just 4 plays, to go 80 yards, in only 1 minute and 50 seconds.
Following the kickoff, Lakeview would go three and out, and give the ball back to Hubbard at the Bulldog 41-yard line. From there, it was nothing but rinse and repeat. The Eagles would score on their next 4 possessions, while only giving up one first down to the Bulldogs during that span.
Going into halftime, the Eagles were already leading, 35-0. This was exactly the performance Coach Hoffman and his Eagles needed, following a way too close for comfort victory last week over the Jefferson Falcons. Hubbard looked stout in all aspects of the game, and per usual, they went to work on their passing attack against an opponent they knew they had the upper hand on.
Kobe Krisuk finished with 3 completions on 4 attempts for 82 yards and 2 scores, adding another 43 yards on the ground and a rushing touchdown.
Workhorse T.C. Caffey averaged 12.2 yards per carry, finishing the game with 14 carries for 171 yards and 2 touchdowns of his own.
Hubbard: It’s rivalry week for the Eagles…well, depending on who you ask. Krisuk and Caffey will lead their squad West, to take on the Girard Indians (1-2). These two schools have split their last 6 matchups evenly.
Lakeview: The road does not get any easier for the Bulldogs, as they turn their attention to Poland (2-1).
