Hanks Knights Hoping to Win Homecoming Against Americas on Friday Night

By Vianet Lopez
Sports Reporter, Hanks Knights

The momentum favored the Knights.  One good drive and the game was theirs.  Leave it up to a call by one of the sideline officials to completely kill the momemtum.

Final score:  Coronado 31, Hanks 19.

The Knights (0-5, 0-3 district) will play their Homecoming game against the Americas Trailblazers on Friday, Sep. 30.  Game time is 7 p.m.

After watching the first four games, one can conclude that the varsity football waits until the second half to play a full game.  This time, they came out ready from the kick off.  The Knights put the first points on the board when Junior Emilio Noriega scored on a quarterback keeper to give the Knights an early 6-0 lead.

The T-Birds scored 17 unanswered points until Noriega hit senior Damon Burkett.  Burkett broke from a tackle and scampered in for a score to cut the lead to 17-13 heading into the fourth.

After T-Bird kicker Edward Mendez missed wide right on a field goal, the Knights began their drive deep in their own territory.  After senior Erick Thomas caught and ran for a first down, one of the Coronado players picked up the ball after the whistle was blown, showed the ball to the sideline official, and the official declared a fumble and turnover on the play.

“The whistle already blew when I let the ball go,” Thomas said.

It didn’t matter as the turnover killed any momentum Hanks gained in their attempt to win their first game of the year.
