McLouth can’t stop HHS charge
Horton's David Paden opened the game with an 85-yard kickoff return on the game's first play and the Chargers never looked back, defeating McLouth 44-0 on Friday in Horton.
HHS exploded for 30 points in the first quarter, then scored seven in both the second and third quarters.
McLouth didn't help its own cause. Although the Bulldogs rushed for 230 yards, they lost two fumbles that resulted in two long touchdowns and two more interceptions. Senior Lester Dean rushed for 76 yards on seven carries.
Now 0-3, the Bulldogs again will be on the road Friday with a 7 p.m. game against Pleasant Ridge in Easton. The Rams are 2-1 on the season.
After three weeks of play, Troy sits atop the Delaware Valley League standings as the only unbeaten team. The Trojans are 3-0, while Jeff County North, Valley Falls, Jackson Heights, Pleasant Ridge and Horton are 2-1.
Wathena, Oskaloosa and McLouth are the only teams still searching for their first victories.
