Hebron holds Humphreys

The Eagles came out strong in their second game of the season, keeping the points adding up on the board and holding back Humphreys Academy for a 34-14 win.
Hebron drew first blood in the first quarter off a 10-yard pass from Channing Tapley to Hayden Carty for a 6-0 lead. The Eagles added two more in the second from a three-yard run by Landon Hill and a seven-yard run by Justin Gordon. Hill and Brandon England got the conversion runs.
Humphreys scored on a 50-yard run and made their conversion to bring the score to 22-8 at the half.
In the fourth, Humprheys went for the rally, scoring on a 50-yard pass, but Hill answered for Hebron with a 60-yard TD run. A Hebron interception stopped Humphreys later in the quarter and Justin Gordon sealed the deal with a 26-yard TD run for the 34-14 win.
Coming off an opening loss to Victory Christian, coach David Foster saw much more positive action on the field this game.
“They did really well,” Foster said. “They had moments last week when they didn’t play bad, but I thoguht the execution was poor. This week, there was an overall good effort.”
Players who cross the goal line get the most attention, but Foster credited the line that allows them to do their job.
“The offensive line did an excellent job,” Foster said. “Troy Arnold, Jessie Moroe and Joey Ard, that’s who I put up there and we run some subs in. Nick McCary and Brandon England made some good plays and stepped up and blocked and it showed. Making positive yards, they’re the key to the whole deal.”
The Eagles will host Sharky-Issaquena Friday and Foster wants to make sure his team is ready.
“They’re a very good team,” Foster said. “We’ve got to put what we did this Friday back on the field next Friday.”
