Iowa Park Edges Hirschi in Game of the Week

The Hirschi Huskies left one point too many on the field Friday night in Iowa Park.

The Huskies allowed two defensive touchdowns to the Hawks, and despite holding the Iowa Park offense to just 7 points, the Huskies dropped the Dr Pepper Game of the Week 21-20.

Shane Clement had a touchdown run for the Huskies, who drop to 1-5, and 0-1 in District 6-3A.

Iowa Park improves to 5-1, 1-0 in District.

It was a defensive battle from the start.

Iowa Park scored first when the Huskies fumbled a quarterback-running back exchange on their own 1 yard line, and the Hawks' Kelby Tucker fell on it in the end zone for a touchdown.

Clement's long run tied the game for the Huskies in the 2nd quarter, but then in the final minute of the half, with Hirschi driving for some go-ahead points, quarterback Tre Thomas got hit hard and coughed up the ball, with Iowa Park's Chandler Rosinbaum picking it up and taking it all the way for the go-ahead touchdown.

The potential 14-point swing came back to haunt the Huskies, who missed their first District win in 15 games by just 1 point.

Next week our Dr Pepper Game of the Week heads to Windthorst as the Trojans come off of their bye week to face the Archer City Wildcats in a huge early-season game in District 8-A Division II.

The Wildcats took care of business against Perrin-Whitt in their District opener, winning 48-7.
