The Pawhuska Huskies’ seventh/eighth-grade football team rolled to a 26-0 home victory Monday over the Caney Valley Trojans.
Caney Valley opened the contest by taking the ball deep into Pawhuska territory, but the drive ended when Kalen Carter recovered a Trojan fumble at the 35-yard line. Midway through the second quarter, Bryce Drummond ran 60 yards for the Huskies’ first touchdown. The score remained 6-0 at halftime .
Carter returned the second-half kickoff 70 yards for a TD and Jack Long ran the two-point conversion, giving the locals a 14-0 advantage. Touchdown passes of 33 and 43 yards from Colton Brunger to Long accounted for the other Pawhuska scores. A devastating block by Isaiah Walker cleared a path for Long on the second TD.
Kevin Davis had a 25-yard punt return for the Huskies. Also recovering fumbles for Pawhuska were Chandler Moen, Gavin Camargo and Dallin Richardson.
